If you want to liven up your bedroom, you could have an overhaul of your existing bed linen. By choosing some out-of- the-ordinary bed linen and then looking for the right accessories, you can end up with a lively bedroom that has a really cheeky, fun feel.
Bed Linen to suit a Theme
Decorate your bedroom with a theme in mind – a beach or seaside theme for example. Think how you can re-create sand, sea and sunshine with your bedlinen; the colours, textures, sounds and smells of the sea can be your inspiration. Or maybe your favourite movie star, your favourite city or country, nature, a country cottage bedroom, flowers, a futuristic theme, monochrome, jewels, or even your hobby – any thing that interests you can inspire you.
Change the Colour Scheme of your Bed Linen
Be daring and go for a complete change. Change the colour scheme of your bed linen entirely, then get some pillows, cushions and rolled up fleece blankets to give your bed a completely different look. Be brave and adventurous; choose colours you wouldn’t necessarily go for straight away. You could arrange bed runners in colours that complement your bed linen; they are available plain or patterned. Or be enterprising and choose bold opposing colours. Be creative and experiment with throws, exotic blankets, and sheets.
Create a beautiful Boudoir with Bed Linen
Create a sumptuous boudoir. Be as brazen as you dare and use red and black lace, or silk sheets to give an aura of passion and romance. Try sassy polka dots, shocking pink, feather boas or crimson love hearts. Go for a mixture of textiles; velvet, velour, chenille, sequins and jewels. Add lamp shades, chandeliers and other accessories to complete the look.
Bed Linen with a Difference
Go for something entirely different and personal; create a cheeky bedroom using comic bed linen. Look for joke designs and slogans, and accesorise with pictures, framed comics, road signs, whatever makes you smile. Or match a joke theme with daring with black and silver bed linen, or more outrageous colours.
Choose bed linens in animal prints, such as tiger or giraffe, and then have fun accessorising with animal pictures, paw prints, furry cushions, soft toys and so on. Or go for animal designs printed on your bed covers; jungle animals, pets, or your favourite sea animal – a dramatic diving dolphin or a cheeky meerkat.
