Whether you’re designing a pastel haven, countryside retreat or a contemporary Scandinavian inspired pad, these top tips will help you to recreate a celebrity inspired bedroom, one faux fur throw at a time…
Create a mood board
When designing your celebrity inspired bedroom, you need to have a clear vision of what you would like to create, otherwise, the room can end up looking confused and mismatched. Pinterest is a fantastic free tool bursting with decor inspiration and top tips from expert interior designers.
The first step is to decide on your colour palette, this will then enable you to move onto choosing furnishing and accessories. By creating either a physical or online mood board, you can start to envision your ideas coming to life.
Get rid of the clutter
Do you remember that episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians where Kim has piles of belongings all over her bedroom floor? No, because that would never happen. Celebrity bedrooms often mirror that of a hotel, slick and clutter-free. It’s time to clear up the floordrobe and pack away items that you don’t need.
If you’re struggling to banish the books, DVDs and photo albums to the loft then you could think about some savvy storage solutions. Divan beds are a great option, as these allow you to store any clutter away in the drawer space. Head to Divan Beds Centre for a wide range of styles and designs.
Stick to neutral tones
It’s rare you’ll spot a celebrity bedroom with a red and yellow colour theme, instead, you’re more likely to spy neutral tones and a calming colour palette. Neutrals create a peaceful atmosphere, ideal for those with chaotic lives who need to retreat to their bedroom after a busy day to unwind.
Neutral doesn’t have to mean boring and bland however, accent with pops of colour and bring the outdoors in with an arrangement of house plants to bring the room to life.
Accessorise with statement pieces
You’ll often find celebrity homes show-off many statement pieces, whether that be an unusual sculpture, original artwork, or even an extravagant chair. Channel your inner celebrity, even if your budget doesn’t quite stretch to an authentic Charles Eames lounger. A velvet reading chair, funky vase and patterned rug are all fabulous statement pieces you can pick up on a budget to transform your bedroom into a stylish living space.
Don’t follow trends
Unless you have the time and inclination to give your bedroom a regular makeover, it’s best to steer clear of the trends and stick to classic styles that won’t date. You may tire of bold patterns and crazy colours, which is why it’s best to decorate the walls in a neutral shade, and let the accessories do the talking when it comes to playing with colour. After all, it’s much easier to replace a pillow than it is to organise a complete redecoration!
