DalstonIndustrial Bedroom, London
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Play with proportionVertical stripes on walls and at windows can trick the eye into seeing a room as taller than it is; horizontal ones will make it seem wider. Here, the ceiling is raised – visually – with a trompe l’oeil wallpaper. The concrete-effect panelled grid pattern also regularises the room’s awkward angles – and, as a bonus, adds texture to the small space. Choose wide stripes for a contemporary feel – and neutral or receding colours over bolds.
Lift a grey schemeJust imagine how different this mainly grey scheme would feel without the addition of aqua accents. Yes, the texture of the concrete-effect wallpaper adds interest to the neutral look, but the two aqua cushions and bedside tables bring the whole space to life.
