There’s something comforting and intimate about the tactility of textures. The indescribable softness of a knit throw blanket, the luxuriousness of a faux fur rug, or the delicateness of a lace appliqué. By incorporating these textural elements into your space, you can instantly incite that sense of touch and instill a feeling of romance.
A calming and neutral colour palette is what makes this exotic theme work. While there are multiple colours at play here, they are all muted in tone and blend together to create one cohesive scheme. The cream cowhides and rustic linen bedding bring natural elements into the mix, lending the room warmth and preventing it from feeling one-note.
Though this room is small in square footage, the decorative impact is big. Carved wood birds perch on the tall, curvy headboard. Greens and browns in a variety of shades and textures give more depth and interest to this woodsy getaway. Situated just off the screened porch, the open door brings in the sounds of the lake and woods.
Painted walls are a practical choice at this stage of the game. Paint has a fresh contemporary feeling, and, better yet, it's the least expensive, fastest way to make a big change in a room. You'll want to tell your child that paint looks a lot darker and more vivid on four walls than in a tiny paint chip and that professional designers usually advocate choosing a color two or three steps lighter than the color you like best on the paint chip. That said, buy the smallest container you can of several colors in the running, and have your child paint an area about three feet square on one wall with each of the colors. Let your child choose the hue that looks best. (One big exception to starting with the paint color is if your child has already picked out a fabric. Then, you'll probably want to suggest paint to coordinate with the lightest color in the fabric.)
