A quick bedroom update that can done in a weekend with a bit of determination, and a constant supply of coffee and chocolate biscuits…..

A dated bedroom doesn’t necessarily need the wallpaper stripping off. Paint over light colours with a more modern neutral, we love Farrow and Ball’s Pointing for older houses especially for east or north facing rooms where grey tones can be difficult. Taking down a pelmet and sill length curtains and ‘puddling’ linen voile on the floor from a curtain pole gives a simple and very fresh feel to a room as does the oversized white bedspread. Picking up a colour from a bright artwork for the final touches of a throw and cushions finishes the weekend’s work.
