I need some inspiration. Please don't ask me to look for inspiration from pictures or curtains or whatever that I have already because I've been trying to do this for three years and still haven't come up with anything!
We have a late-40s house and the room itself is east-facing, measuring about 4m x 3m.
There are hideous white, mirrored built-in wardrobes taking up one wall - these need to stay for now. I don't care tbh if my new colour scheme doesn't really go with them - I just need to escape the magnolia.
Sooo, radical or subdued I'm open to anything. If it turns out hideous I can always repaint. DP doesn't need to like it btw - This one is my call
GrendelsMum we have a silly amount of bedlinen (inherited my mum's - she had a bit of a linen fetish) but it is all white! The curtains are a deep red colour, but tbh I don't really like them (the colour's fine but they were a make-do brought over from my old flat).
I only have white bedlinen so then you can paint whatever!I have a mushroom colour on the walls amd natural linen curtains.There is one wall brick with a fireplace and built in wardrobes made from old reclaimed pine.Bedlinen white and we also squeezed in a sofa in an olive-y colour.It is very restful.With red curtains and white linen I would go for a deep grey on the walls white ceiling and get some white voiles to add to the curtains.then get a lovely snuggly checked throw in deep reds and greys and white lovely!
noddy - thank you! Your bedroom sounds lovely. Sadly my built-in wardrobes are melamine. They look like something my Sindy had in the mid-70s. Even so deep grey it is then I think. Will stop off at Homebase for match pots. I bet Argos has some deep red cushiony things, too. SO I needn't go to Ikea. Hurrah!
