Marquee Black Verna Chair
Our original master bedroom hadn't been renovated in years and felt stuck in the 70s. Working to a limited budget, we're going to create a look that ties together a subtle colour palette of soft blush that will be complemented by the warmth of copper and timber.
Lighting is also key feature of the room design, with stylish pendants that create a focal point and softer lighting to set the mood.
Choosing the right lighting is an important design decision for your bedroom redesign. Pendants are a great way to add character and create a designer touch. Dimmable downlights are more practical and give you the added benefit of softening the light for relaxation. Table lamps are useful and they also complement your overall design.
To give the room a bright and airy feel, we removed two narrow windows and replaced them with a larger one. We also installed translucent and block out blinds into a bulkhead for a seamless look with a dual function.
Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
