Bedroom of blue

bedroom feature

Robyn and Philip’s eldest son lives overseas and was due to come home for a visit with his girlfriend.

So they thought a small makeover of his room would be nice. Robyn bought the duvet first and took a pillow case to her local Resene ColorShop.

Resene Hammerhead was tested first, then Resene Shadowy Blue, both were nice but too dark. Finally they tried Resene Powder Blue. Perfect!

The colour stays true at night with the lights on as well.

The colour scheme of the rest of the house is pretty neutral so this was the perfect way to introduce a colour without jarring with the original wall colour and carpets.

This bedroom can get very hot as well so the Resene Powder Blue is perfect for visually cooling the room down.

Next project, the other son’s room!
