Are you considering a wall paint design that will turn your bedroom into a romantic boudoir? Bedroom colors can be a very personal choice. What some people see as romantic others may be seen as the complete opposite by others. Choosing warm colors is great place to start.
Establishing Colors within a Home
Blues and greens are usually seen as cold colors that are associated with wall paint designs in bathrooms or kitchens. Warmer colors, such as creams, reds, pinks, gold or peaches are usually better for creating a warm romantic atmosphere. However, these colors can be somewhat limiting. A good place to start is to decide whether you are keeping your current furniture in place or if you are going to redecorate the entire bedroom from scratch.
If you intend to keep the furniture, it is wise to choose colors that blend with the furniture.
Choosing Warm Colors to Blend in
Bedroom furniture in most homes is either white, brown or made from wood. Choosing warm colors to contrast furniture is always preferable. Feature walls are often a great way of accentuating a particular part of the room such as a fireplace. If there are no walls with stand-out features in your bedroom, you can choose any wall as the ‘feature wall’ and continue to build on your wall paint designs from a single focal point.
The idea of the feature wall is to make it stand out from the rest of color used in the bedroom. An effective wall paint design draws attention to the feature wall when entering the room. Let us suppose that you have chosen a warm cream color for the other walls of the room; you could have your feature wall in a chocolate brown color to provide an eye-catching contrast.
To further highlight the feature wall, your bed can be placed coming out from the wall and into the room. Place nightstands next to either side of the bed for maximum romantic effect.
For people who decide to use blending colors, it is possible to choose radically-contrasting colors for your accessories. Throw pillows, curtains and blankets of opposing colors into the equation to provide a hotel-chic look. Gold or silver also gives a contrasting and exciting look to a romantic bedroom.
Putting it Together
It is vital to establish whether your wall paint designs will come together properly. Using our examples, we have painted the feature wall in a warm chocolate brown. The other 3 walls are warm cream or cappuccino colors and all of the accessories are in place. You will need to establish whether these features have provided the romantic feel you were looking for. Often, new fitting such as light fixtures (and seductive dimmer switches) can add a romantic flourish to a room that can blend in perfectly with your wall paint designs.
Keeping the Romance Alive!
Artwork can have a fantastic aphrodisiac-effect. Try to find some sensual artwork to place upon the feature wall. This does not have to be a painting, but can also be photographs. Black and white photographs add an atmospheric look to a feature wall and can give a subtle hint that the room is meant for romantic use.
Candles are also a wonderfully beautiful feature to add to a room. Strategically placed, they can add warmth and atmosphere to your new boudoir especially is their warming glow complements your romantic wall paint designs.
