8 Tricks to Help You Fall in Love with Your Bedroom

Your home is undoubtedly your haven but there are some special nooks and corner, or rooms that you often end up spending more time in than others. More often than not, it is your bedroom where you’re most comfortable; it is the place where you unwind, where you see the first light of the day and therefore, it stands to reason that your bedroom should be the best decorated room too.

 

This edition, we have for you some simple style tips to spruce up your bedroom and make it a place even harder to leave when your morning alarm goes off!

 

1. Carpets or Rugs

 

There is nothing more annoying than stepping onto cold wooden or marble floors in a sleepy haze every morning. It sends a shock through you and is definitely not an ideal way to wake up. Cover the floor with a carpet entirely or select one long enough that extends a few feet either side of your bed.

 

2. Throw Pillows

 

While throw pillows make for uncomfortable back and head rests, they are awesome for cuddling with or just some extra support. Pad your cozy bed further with throw pillows covered in different colours and textures to add some depth to the look! The pillows need not be the exact same and can be of varying sizes and shapes too.

 

3. Wall Design

 

For your bedroom to be calming, it is very important for it to look well aired and uncluttered. Having a good bedroom wall design goes a long way in determining that. Select soothing tones, or mirrors with ornate borders that give your nook a beautiful touch.

 

4. Pastels on walls

 

You can change the atmosphere of your bedroom by incorporating delicate hues. Pastel shades such as peach, powder blue, baby blue, light pink or mauve can give your bedroom walls a soft and an absolutely charming look.

5. Photographs and Artwork

 

Most people have both, photos and artwork scattered all over their homes, but the ones framed here are always slightly more personal. You must take your time choosing which pieces of art or photographs you would want to display in your bedroom. Art pieces that speak to you or are calming are preferable over chaotic pieces since those are unsettling.

 

6. A Smaller Seating Arrangement

 

Instead of having the bed as the only place where you can sit, having either a small seating arrangement in one side of the room, or a single armchair, settee etc. are great to have. You can sit there when you don’t intend to sleep but still want to relax in the bedroom.

 

Can your walls make you feel good?

Sometimes it creeps up on you, and sometimes it hits you – but very few human beings today can claim that they have never felt low. And while the best thing to do always is to sort it out internally, we are simple creatures. A cup of ice-cream, a favourite song – something as simple as even this can lift our spirits.

But the disadvantage of the cup of ice-cream and song is that you can’t eat ice-cream and listen to your favourite song everyday, unless you want to fall ill from all that sugar and ‘milk’ and break any electronic device that plays that song you now can’t stand.

No. What would be nicer is something ambient. Something which is a big part of your life, yet is not intrusive to the senses.

We are talking of course, about your walls. And that’s why we’re going to give you some quick painting ideas so that whenever you wake up from bed or are sitting by your table with a cup of coffee, if nothing else, your walls will be able to make you feel like you are in a good place.

A blue hue – A colour which can create an aura of relaxation. Although its overuse in corporate spaces has associated it with a cold and formal vibe, it’s actually a very warm colour, especially for the bedroom.

Yellow – Add some sunshine to your walls! This colour works great especially in making cramped areas, which normally don’t help the spirits, look bigger and more spacious. Your kitchen or dining room could do well with this shade. But be careful – too much yellow and you’ve got an eyesore. Respect the sunshine, and use it intelligently.

Green – For the same reason we want to look outside a window at the trees, green is a serene colour which probably makes us feel more in touch with nature. And on your walls, that’s the vibe it’s going to give.

Purple – If a feminine and royal vibe is what gets you going, purple is the thing for you. But too much use of it isn’t good.

The 10 Commandments of Home Painting

The home is where the heart is and painting it with the right colours doesn’t just bring life and personality to your entire space, but also sets the mood for your daily activities in and around your house.

Although it may seem like a daunting task, painting doesn’t have to be so if you are organized and plan every detail. It’s also important to be aware of the know-hows of painting before taking the plunge.

Have you noticed that there was a time when people painted their walls only when it started to peel off? Well, not anymore. Today, paint is considered an integral décor element that people are eager to spend on to beautify their homes. In fact, the track-record shows that the Indian paint industry clocked a growth of 1.5-2 times that of GDP growth. According to reports, the decorative paints industry is expected to touch $10.42-billion in the next few years.

In India, the repainting cycle has reduced significantly, from 7 years (about a decade back) to 3-5 years (at present). These changes can be attributed to several factors, such as increased income, number of festivals, number of marriages, and changes in the mind-set and lifestyle of the people.

Now, with no further ado, here is a compilation of home painting commandments, including pointers and tips on what you can expect, along with tricks you should be aware of when overseeing a painting project. Use them to effortlessly navigate your way to the perfectly painted home! Read on and take notes!

Commandment 1
Thou Shalt Learn The Basics Of How Colours Work

Knowing the basics of how colours work is the first step towards creating a home that attracts attention and makes a statement. With this knowledge, you can use colours to set moods in certain areas of your home, for example, energizing shades in your living room that inspires a social vibe or calming warm shades in your bedroom that encourage tranquillity.

Most often, the Colour Wheel is where painting themes are derived from. Learning how this wheel of wonders works can help you pick a colour palette for your home painting. Relax, it isn’t rocket science!

 

Commandment 2
Thou Shalt Plan Each Room’s Ambience In Advance

Picking the right colour scheme may be tricky if you wish to create different ambient moods in every corner of your rooms. You need to establish how to use personality and mood as a backdrop in your rooms. Colours have the power to induce a desired mood. They can influence physiological reactions like blood pressure, increased metabolism, eyestrain and even affect the decisions people make.

So, if you wish to infuse a calming vibe in a room, pick serene colours and if you want to create a happy atmosphere, yellow or orange is a suitable shade.

 

Commandment 3
Thou Shalt Use Colour Swatches & Paint Samples

Painting is not about slapping a coat of paint on the wall without sampling it first. Ask your painters for swatches and samples, observe shades in different lighting and test paints in small sections on the walls in your home. Remember, lighting plays a huge role in the final result. So, notice how the shades seem in natural light, in differing daylight, and with lighting in the room to figure out how they will work with the fixed surrounding elements of your house.

Berger Paints India has a handy tool called Virtual Painter that allows you to play with colours and experiment with shades virtually, be it for home interiors or exteriors. This helps to make an informed decision.

Commandment 4
Thou Shalt Pick The Right Coatings For The Right Surfaces

Homes consist of a wide range of surfaces, such as glass, wood and metal, making coatings an important aspect of home painting. There are really two reasons to apply a protective coating to your project: protection and appearance. The level of protection and effects of appearance offered by a coating varies by the type you use, and there are many varieties to choose from, such as glass coating for glass surfaces and wood coating for wood surfaces. Make sure to use the right coating for the surfaces for the desired results.

How To Paint A Large Room?

Painting a large room can be daunting. You don’t want it to look cold and be devoid of any personality. Stark white expanses can be quite boring and monotonous. You will struggle to make it look interesting with artwork and wall accessories. The idea behind a painting a room is to create a welcoming setting. To infuse color into a large space, we have rounded up a few tips from our interior experts. Keeping these tips in mind you can ensure that your painting project is a success.

Here are a few ideas to paint a large room

1. Embrace dark colors: An all-white room can be bland and uninspiring. But when you are blessed with a large room, you can use dark colors to give the room a touch of drama. Navy blue, deep purple and shades of gray can give a large room a sense of intimacy. Deep warm hues provide a perfect backdrop for the dining area or the living room. They make them so cosy that you actually look forward to spending time in that room. To create an elegant effect, make sure to use light-colored furniture pieces that have golden or silver edges. Metal accents can lend a large room a glamorous feel.

Dark Colors For Interior Wall Paints

Give your walls a glamorous look

Create instant glamour by applying Silk Glamour Mettalic paints on your walls. Silk Glamor Metallic is a super-premium product that will give the designer finish to your walls. The metallic texture will lend your house a touch of elegance and a hint of moodiness.

2. Two-toned wall: If you have a high ceiling, then go for a two-toned wall. It will give the room a cosy feeling and trick you into thinking that the ceilings are lower than they are. In a really large living, a two-toned wall helps to create two zones. They can be used to separate the dining area from the living room. To create visual intrigue, you can keep a sofa between the two zones.

3. Let the ceiling do the talking: If you want to lend your room a magical vibe, then try painting the ceiling. A yellow ceiling will brighten up a neutral setting. It will create a playful counterpoint to the walls painted in neutral colors. If you are going for a bold color for the ceiling, balance it with crisp white walls.

4. Create contrast: To lend your room a dramatic flair, try pairing it with cool shade. Don’t shy from away from using a bold color like blue for your accent wall. Make sure the furniture and accents go well with bold color. The contrast of a blue accent wall against white walls can look very modern and chic. If you are choosing a dark color for the accent wall, make sure the furnishing and furniture are light-coloured. This way both the walls and the furniture will look stylish and elevated together. Let the color of the accent drive the design process and set the mood of the room.

With a seasonal makeover to your interiors, you can make this Christmas extra special for you and your family. From choosing festive interior colors to using seasonal decor accessories, there are plenty of ways how you can give your home a Christmassy look.

Here are some popular and easy-to-perfect Christmas-themed decor ideas for you:

1) Welcome the holiday spirit with the right colors

What better way to lend a festive look to your living room than with the right colors? If you have a red accent color in your living room like our deep red shade Sheer Red (1A1976), draw more attention to it with Christmas trees and by creating a gift-keeping space.

You can also pair the red accent with warm neutrals such as faded grey, ivory, and faded tan. Match the accent color with a red sofa or red throws (if your sofa has a different color). And the best part about red is that it’s a timeless color. So, if you are planning to give a new look to your home in 2020, a red backdrop can help you start the new year with a bang.

Soft throws, neutral-colored cushion covers, and a plush area rug are other additions that help you up the comfort quotient of the space.
