We’ve all been through it at some point in our life. Getting to sleep can be difficult, but unfortunately, you’ve got to sleep somewhere and you can’t just snap your fingers and change your surroundings! Recently, there’s been a lot of colour popping up in bedrooms. Gone are the standard days of boring white rooms! Hooray, right? Unfortunately the rise of colour in the bedroom has an unintended side effect on the quality of our sleep. We don’t tend to sleep as well when there’s bright red staring back at us at night, but if we want to keep up with trends, what can we do?
Nowadays, living room design tends to go a bit further than the traditional straight line look, with two matching sofas and a fireplace in the middle. That’s great and all, but, especially with the rise of the television, the modern home tends to be laid out differently. A side effect of this is less mirrored sofas; although they can still look just as great as they used to in a different setting. Here’s 3 ways to go bold and bring back the matching sofa trend.
Nobody wants to throw away a good piece of furniture. Sure, any old cabinet can be put into the back for brighter days. But if it looks scruffy, why bother? Thankfully, there’s no need to chuck a perfectly good set of drawers, there’s a cheap way to spruce them up. Paint! Most of us are well aware of the good a splash of paint on the walls or ceiling can do, but most of the time we don’t think about doing the same thing for our furniture. Not only can paint be used to hide damage, scratches and marks, but it can also bring a much loved piece of furniture right up to date with the current style in your home.
Winters still not over, but that doesn’t mean we have to live in gloom until spring comes around. Colour is a big part of setting the mood in your home and there’s nothing nicer than the warm and happy feelings of spring. Pick colours that make you happy inside but always test shades out. Here are 3 colours to tide you over til the rain stops.
