Victorian villaEclectic Bedroom, Gloucestershire
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Highlight a featureThe all-white furniture in this eclectic bedroom looks so fresh against the vivid wall colour. As well as the magnificent bed, one of the first things you’ll notice is the beautiful ceiling rose and the smart-looking cornice and picture rail. Using a contrasting white paint to highlight these features enhances them and draws the eye up.
Punchy palettes get our attentionWho could fail to take a second look at this knockout room? While the ornate furniture and fittings are kept fairly simple in white (if simple is the right term for a crystal chandelier, candle wall sconces, bird lamp bases and a decorative bed frame), the walls are left free to zing. This treatment for a teenage girl’s room may not be to everyone’s taste, but it certainly inspired many of you to experiment with bold colour.
Source a statement bedA lavish, ornate wooden bed with lots of French-style detailing looks strikingly modern when made in pure white. It’s a contemporary alternative to the warm wood finish that many beds of this design sport, and it stands out boldly against dark or vibrantly painted walls.
Take it up and overThis flamboyant boudoir turns the notion of ‘white walls, colourful bedding’ on its head. This fresh, invigorating turquoise wraps the walls and ceiling in a brave bolt of blue. The key here is to freshen the look with white furniture, bedding and paintwork and let the blue glow create a cocoon-like vibe for sleeping.More ideas for a blue and white decorating scheme
