Attics and loft spaces were traditionally used for storing old china and redundant curtains.
Nowadays building into the top of the house, have transformed these dark low eaves into light airy bedrooms often with an en suite bathroom.
Indigo Design’s interior designers in Cambridgeshire have experience in building loft extensions to create another room to be used as a study or in this case as a guest bedroom for grandchildren.
We wanted to design a bright funky sleeping space for twin boys to have fun in when they came to stay.
The bright citrus green was a great way to bring style to the bedroom. We painted this vivid colour on two walls only as it is a colour that needs to be broken up with skirting or as in this case doors and windows. It also very effectively emphasised the interesting shape of the room.
To keep the feeling of light instead of a white we used a dulux colour which was a very pale lemon. It is less harsh than white tones with the green and is not absorbing like a cream would be.
The orange on the bedcover fitted in perfectly with our oranges and lemons theme. Think sherbet dabs and smarties and then the patterns on the duvet covers make design sense. Indigo are no strangers to the influence of candy ….
Texture is created by the wooden practical Conran furniture and also by the white furry throws and cuddly teddy bears, and who could not resist the charm of the quirky cuckoo clock. (Luckily the voice of the bird can be turned off)
A lovely room but one which children can dream of circus tents (stripes) snow (cuddly polar bears) and of course Willy Wonka (the candy duvets and chocolate brown pillow cases)
