Bedroom Re-style/ Colour Correction

AFTER SHOT OF RE-STYLE

Hello,

Can I just say that styling other people’s homes truly makes my heart sing… on that very passionate note, I thought I would share a re-style that I completed last week.

This lovely bedroom belongs to a holiday home- it’s a modern style home about 8 years old. The main bedroom in particular needed a lift; as you can see from the picture below- it was already a beautiful bedroom- it had good bones and a decent ensemble. However the original crème- ochre tones of the duvet and the natural tones of the bedroom/ cupboard ensemble were working against the green feature wall behind. For a main bedroom in a holiday home, it needed more- specifically in the areas of warmth and expression!

BEFORE SNAP OF RE-STYLE

I am sure every stylist has their own way of working that makes sense to them- my personal styling theory for feature-walls is that they look their best when there is some sort of conversation going on between them and the other decor items in the room- such as similar pops of colour-tones or mood.

I simply added some green and purple tones, a duvet cover, a throw and some plain coloured pillows. I also added some dried Banksia bush to the light fitting behind simply because it’s the simple details that give a space expression! Do you have any favourite styling rules that make sense to you? Do share with me; I would love to hear about them!

    Gorgeous Rach, I love your style, so different to my style that is why I admire it so much. I think I add to much stuff, but I love the pared back look.

    • I love green too Anne… its just one of those colours that really speaks to me. It was my mothers fav colour too so have been around greens for a long time now ;-). So glad you popped by! Rach xx

  3. Its a great way to make over a room on a budget. I always advise my clients to change out the linen and get a few new cushions for a quick makeover to lift a room.

    Yours looks great.

    • I totally agree Carolyn! This was totally achieved on a budget- I sourced linen, cushions and a throw for this room but actually just flipped the duvet over for this re-style. The other side of the duvet happened to be this perfectly neutral colour and it was still in fabulous condition!
