Bedroom profile: Find balance with the 80:20 rule

Article by Simply You


Find balance
Follow the 80:20 rule of thumb to create the perfect colour balance – 80 per cent neutral colours, including the carpet and bed linen, and 20 per cent strong colours, such as quilts, art and other accessories.

Think fabrics

Floral fabrics are a growing interior trend, one borrowed from fashion, and shades of peach, coral and blue are a great way to brighten a plain bedroom. Choose a floral-patterned quilt or armchair to add a feminine feel to your room.
