Welcome – Bedrooms are by their very nature personal spaces so how we decorate them is also highly personal. If you have a thing for purple, want bold daisy patterns on your walls or want to replicate the inside of Versailles in your room – who’s to say you can’t?
Of course, a shared bedroom may be trickier to decorate as you take each person’s tastes and needs into account. But the overriding need for any bedroom is to create a place in which you can relax, retreat to and get a good night’s sleep.
That can be achieved in many ways – through Resene paint colours, wallpapers, accessories and by using a soothing theme – think coastal, tropical or mindful. There’s a move currently to be very indulgent with our bedrooms, mimicking a resort-style luxe feel that makes us feel pampered and restored.
Whatever your taste or needs, this habitat plus aims to inspire you to redecorate your bedrooms – whether they are for you, family or guests – and do it your way.
