Sometimes the best style inspiration can be found in a bygone era – this boheme bedroom is our throwback take on the 1970s, mixing a ‘groovy’ colour palette and applying it into modern everyday bedroom setting.
Dulux Molesworth provided a warm, neutral backdrop to work with. Continuing the colour down the wall and across the floor also helped to create a look of low-key luxury.
I had a very specific colour palette in mind for this bedroom, so rather than trying to find a piece of art to fit, I chose to make it myself. DIY artwork can go so wrong, and I am definitely no ‘Divinci’ so I admit I was very nervous with the paint brush in hand.
With test pots of my chosen colours of Dulux Kingsland, Dulux Tikitiki and Dulux Invercargill, I sketched out a pattern on a canvas that would let me play with these colours in an abstract way. Keeping to simple rock and mountain shapes worked well for this concept and I’m really happy with how this turned out. I feel it adds a really lovely organic element to this bedroom, and with the bonus of it being a one off piece. Give it a try at home!
Bright, ochre bed linen brings a bit of sunshine to the space for spring, but layered with the lighter shade of Kombucha and darker shade of Olive it takes on a fun, retro-feel.
A bench seat makes a novel stand-in for a bedside table, with extra room to take a seat or showcase some of your favourite things. This woven bench is the perfect, compact size to suit all spaces!
Rugs help to create definition in your room – sometimes a smaller rug like our Armadillo & Co. entrance mat is all you need to balance the space and add some texture laid next to your bed.
