Bedroom design: subdued, restrained and calm
"The bedroom should be your personal sanctuary of rest and relaxation. That's why I believe in creating an environment of calm, lending itself to helping you unwind at the day's end and awaken refreshed in the morning."
Chris achieved this sense of calm with warm, inviting Laminex colours and textures that reflect nature, paired with simple geometric shapes that are complemented by the natural light.
The core palette
"Create an environment of calm by keeping it simple." Chris opts for a minimalist sense of design with a natural colour palette featuring subtle grain. The introduction of Laminex Just Rose provides an added layer of warmth and adds a soft touch to the space.
Subtle texture with a sense of surprise
The use of Laminex Fox Teakwood provokes a sense of authenticity through the natural texture of the grain and colour, while the selection of coloured cabinetry in Laminex Just Rose gives an added sense of surprise.
Highlight and complement
Chris uses Laminex Aries as to highlight the folds in the concertina wall, which work to create shadows that further complement the overall colour palette. The Laminex Lava Grey bolster reads as a solid block while working in harmony with the Laminex Fox Teakwood cabinetry.
