Small Bedroom


This small bedroom had an iron-wrought bed and shiny orange walls, which were actually handpainted with a special (and expensive) technique. It was not possible to re-paint the walls nor to put there any wallpaper. Instead used simple, thin basic white panels by Halltex to hide the plastic looking and overwhelming (restless) effect of the walls. 

The owner had already bought a dark Ikea Malm bed and 2 high chest of drawers beside the bed. There's storage place under the bed, which is a great idea for a small bedroom. To keep the bedroom fresh and airy added white curtains and white linen duvet cover. The owner has a loads of photos, posters and souvenirs, which he wanted to put on display, and anyway those are the pieces that makes a place home.

The colours of the posters give nice warm look and feeling. 

Here are some tips to keep in mind when furnishing a small bedroom:

  • Light colours enhance the feeling of space,while darker hues tend to close in. Lighten up tour walls and furnishings.
  • ditch the king size (or evven queen) bed and use space-saving furniture. If storage space is an issue, under-bed storage containers can free up a lot of space.
  • Visually expand the room by using mirrors.

PS. This was the starting point:


Still kept the warm tone - at least slightly!

  1. I love what you have done with that room! You are very talented. I am not a fan of bright colors in my bedroom, but the accent color works perfect with the more mellow black and white. Nicely done!

    Blessings

  5. Should I say total transformation or perfect transformation? Perfect I say. Good job and surely the room looks bigger than small.

  6. Mirrors are always a good (in my opinion the best) solution for small spaces. I like playing with them and with small lights too.

    1. Here people love this sort of burnt orange as it gives a Mditerranean feeling but I feel it's a bit too much and any way in this case the aim was to get a bit of Nordic vibes to the room :D
