Interested in changing up your bedroom area without doing major demolition? It’s easier than you might think. A simple palette change and a furniture rearrangement might be all it takes to refresh a stale layout or make your room feel bigger.
Inventory Your Interests
First, make an inventory of your interests, your favorite things, memories that are meaningful to you, etc. Include in the list your favorite colors, favorite sports, favorite movies, memorable vacations, and favorite styles, and then go back through and see if you can pick out any common themes. For instance, Alison Roan, a North Carolina interior designer who owns ACR Interiors, chose to focus on her client’s love of vibrant colors, romantic nature, and fluency in Spanish to change her master suite from frumpy to fun.
Rearrange Your Furniture
Roane explained, “We were working with a queen-size bed that had to be positioned off-center in the space due to the placement of doors and flow from the hallway to the en suite bath.” It sounds crowded, but they were able to make the space feel more open with their furniture placement and getting rid of clutter.
Complement And Contrast
For a color palette, Roane used a complementing foundation of navy blue and gray to accentuate the elegant patterns and textures in the room, and then added a pop of color with citrine yellow and contrasted it all with white. These color choices aren’t only elegant and interesting, they’re also calming, creating a restful master suite refuge.
Adding An Accent
For accents, Roane chose a large floral picture that combined all the colors in the room, besides adding a pop of orange and red. Yellow was the dominant accent color, so she added yellow throw pillows, a yellow lamp, a yellow throw, and a set of 3 white frames with white matting featuring the owner’s favorite poem. The entire room was inspired by a quote by Pedro Calderon de la Barca, a playwright from the 1600s, which translated says, “When love is not madness, it is not love.”
