The fastest way to update a bedroom is to change your duvet and throw pillows, however, if you do introduce a change of colour and pattern, remember you could change the overall feeling of the room. I purposely wanted to take my bedroom from coastal to country and have been seeking some black and white inspiration.
If I was to ask you to design a room using natures colours, I wonder what you would choose. For me, I look at the deep blue of the ocean or the gentler blue of a winter sky. Varying shades of autumn leaves, from the palest orange to a more vivid, burnt orange. Deep red leaves fading to soft pink and of course touches of green. All the bedrooms I have chosen today reflect colours of nature but maybe not the ones you would expect.
What if you built a new house with traditional farmhouse architecture but wanted to add a modern twist. What furniture would work and how could you achieve a contemporary look yet still retain the character and charm of a farmhouse?

I don't usually take on design projects as I don't profess to be an interior designer, however I recently accepted a small project for a client. After an extensive exterior renovation they wanted a new colour scheme, carpets, curtains and new furniture for their interior.
