A fresh lick of paint has the power to transform a room entirely. Choose a colour scheme and buy some paint for the walls. Try to stick to a neutral palette, carefully introducing some colour through accent pieces. Take the accent from elsewhere in the room, such as the curtains, avoiding colours that already dominate blue sofas and blue walls are not a good combination! For a budget update, use the decorators best friend new toss pillows in a shade to match for subtle colour coordination.
If your bedroom furniture is looking a little tired, a fresh coat of paint goes a long way towards creating a new look in any space. You can paint anything and everything, not just the walls. Reinvent a piece of furniture by changing the colour, or give a tired, dark brick fireplace a second life by painting it creamy white. Replacing doorknobs on a wardrobe or re-upholstering an old chair are also quick, easy projects that will transform your bedroom furniture. If you want a more dramatic update, work out a budget and identify any shabby old furniture which should be replaced. The starting point should be your bed. As this is the centrepiece of your bedroom, a new bed will make a dramatic difference.
