Episode 2: Big bedroom transformations in Bedworth

No time to rest this week as Michaela Sharp and Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen take on two bedroom transformations.

Michaela channels her Abstract Artist

Perhaps the prettiest colour pallet you ever did see was expertly crafted by Michaela to create this enchanting bedroom.

The colours Deep Aubergine, Acai Berry and Golden Sands were used to breathe new life into woodwork – such as the wardrobe, radiator cover, desk, mirror and picture frames – and turn them into features in their own right.

Of course, painting the walls Nutmeg white, and lining the ceiling with pretty patterned wallpaper turned the transformation on its head, really adding that wow factor to the room. You can find similar designs to the one in this week’s show in our extensive wallpaper range.

LLB’s Cabinet of Curiosities

Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen’s bold blue bedroom has quite an impact! Dulux’s Pen Friend is a true classic blue, that’s been made to feel quite opulent when paired with stunning stencilling in another classic, Pure Brilliant White.

It’s amazing the designs that can be created with a paint pen and stencils. In this case, it gives the illusion of intricate panelling, which is still a big trend right now.

Of course, Laurence has put his own stamp on what could have been simple shelving, and created a colourful faux bookcase. All you need is a selection of contrasting colours, and a little imagination to upcycle standard shelves.
