Winter colours and cosy comfort Tuesday 21 August 2007 PDF Print All too soon our thoughts turn to making our homes as warm and cosy as the onset of autumn and winter arrives. We all spend so much more time indoors and the interior of our homes come under close scrutiny. Our bedrooms are just one area in which we focus and colours along with materials are the easiest way of changing style and ambience. Jo Harris from The Big Bed Company shares her tips: “It’s much easier to change your accessories as your taste and the season changes rather than reinvesting or reupholstering your bedroom completely. You can transform your bedroom with different cushions and throws from winter to summer in a very cost effective and simple way. Introducing new colours is by far the most effective answer. Simply using burgundy, browns or rich warm reds to provide a cosy environment gives a real autumnal feel. Mixing patterns and brocades with plain strong colours creates the ideal winter haven.” “Start off by using neutrals on permanent bedroom furniture, and just change the rest. Working from a strong neutral canvas of colours on your walls and carpets as well, allows you the ability to introduce any colours and accessories at all times of the year, its much less expensive than redecorating and starting again.” A clever trick for changing the look and style of your bedroom is by being creative with cushions. Why not buy bespoke cushions that have one fabric on one side and another on the reverse? Swapping fabrics and colours in tune with the season is a simple solution. Accessories offer an endless choice, so why not choose cushions with linen on one side and faux fur on the other? Rich reds can transform to pale blues, deep browns to sunshine yellows and ripe burgundy’s to lilacs in one easy move. The same applies to throws and comforters. Being clever with accessories is not only the easy answer but really allows your bedroom to become a new room whatever time of year. www.thebigbedcompany.co.uk Notes to Editors: The Big Bed Company are happy to loan any product in their range from a completely dressed bed through to accessories and bed linen.
