Finally, the third look, Lemon Stripe Delight, is a lesson in how to use block colour to emphasise a pattern. The walls are graced with a statement black and white diagonal stripe and the bedding sees a bright, acid lemon colour take centre stage. Whereas Plaid-Chevron Party saw two strong patterns combining and thus neutralising one another, Lemon Stripe Delight makes the standalone stripe pattern the hero of the scheme by anchoring it into the space with the colour block yellow bedding. Which of these three colourfully patterned bedrooms do you like best?
Combining colour and pattern in a bedroom can create a stylish, cosy and comfortable scheme that feels perfect for a sleeping space. These three stylish spaces by AURA Home are inspired and memorable examples to marry the two decorating elements with winning results. The first, Midnight Spots, shows how dots needn’t be preppy or juvenile (in the way polka dots can sometimes look) but rather this pattern can offer a simple, stylish and sophisticated look. A deep midnight blue hue is extended form the walls to the bedding and paired with standalone statement circle patterns on the duvet and pillows; paired with a pale dove grey colour only serves to intensify the richness of the blue, in turn making the space feel more enveloping and cosy. The Plaid-Chevron Party of the second look sees a youthful chevron pattern paired with a heritage plaid print wallpaper that is more traditional. By juxtaposing the playful mint of the chevron with the warming pinky red shades of the plaid wallpaper these two strong patterns actually balance one another out to create a bright yet restful space.
