Make it Mid West country, add depth to a plain room with faux texture. Hang a wood panel-effect wallpaper and team with rich green to create a characterful country scheme with masculine style. Further emphasise the rustic with a simple wooden stool at the foot of the bed and a wishbone chair set in a corner. Give the room a boyish vibe by mounting a graphic canvas above the bed.
The first step was to declutter, which created more space. ‘I went around the room deciding what was no longer needed and what could be sold or recycled. I sold many items on Gumtree, Facebook and eBay, which boosted our budget! They then made sure that everything had its place, in order to keep the space calm long term. This shelving unit not only helps to organise the bedroom, but its light profile means that, despite its size, it does not encroach on the rest of the space. ‘It’s great for our art books and other bits and pieces, while the white storage boxes add uniformity,’ say the couple.
Change key pieces, get the monochrome look for less with just a few subtle changes. Start with an all-white backdrop and paper one wall with a budget wallpaper that really stands out. Keep bed linen simple, but add texture with a faux fur striped throw. Repurpose modern plastic stools as side tables and finish the look with metallic cushions for a little understated glamour.
