My problem is that I can’t make up my mind as to whether I should go for a light or a dark interior. On the one hand I love the light minimal aesthetic of having a light bright room, but on the other hand I love the moody warm feeling that can be envoked (especially at night) with lighting in a dark scheme. So I thought I’d do a contrast of the 2 styles over 2 days and provide some tips on how to achieve each look.
Today we look at light and white bedrooms. If you decide to go for a white scheme, the key is to use as much texture as possible. Keep the palette muted and restricted if you want a calm space and natural materials such as wood, linen and wool not only help to create texture but also help warm the room up.
An all white scheme can sometimes feel cold, so be sure to pick a colour that has a warmer hue (usually a yellow undertone) for the bedroom when choosing paint. I would highly recommend a patch test in the room, as white will look different under different types of lighting and there are many different forms of white paint available.
Is your bedroom all white? If so, why did you go for an all white scheme? I’d love to know. See you tomorrow for part 2 of this debate where we will review dark bedrooms. Enjoy your day. xD
