Inside COOL YULE CHRISTMAS CELEBRATIONS GREEN THUMBS UP FOR GONGS DESIGNERS VIE FOR AWARDS BLUEPRINT FOR A PERFECT BOUDOIR TO YOUR COLOURS BE TRUE Janita Singh Find your own creative private space in your bedroom. PERSONAL SPACE Kirrily Johnston says: What should you consider when choosing paint colour? Whether or not the colour complements the style of your home and furnishings, and if you love it enough to live with it. What do you love about your home? That it is old. I love modern interiors but I feel so much more comfortable in something old and a bit bohemian. I love the grandeur of old rooms and high ceilings. Decorating inspiration? I love interior books and magazines. Old European style is a huge influence. I love antiques and things slightly out of the ordinary. Renovation tips? Take your time. Go through loads of books and magazines and sit with tear sheets for a while so you know you won't change your mind. BEDROOM COLOUR FASHION designer Kirrily Johnston recently gave her bedroom (pictured right) a facelift with a colour she adores --- blue, for that old-worldly kind of bohemian feel. Kirrily, who recently partnered with Dulux to showcase her new fashion collection as part of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia, under- stands the impact of colours on our moods. ''I live in an old '20s bungalow-style home in Bel- levue Hill and wanted the room to have an old-worldly kind of bohemian feel so I chose a duck egg blue (Dulux Tenzing in half strength),'' she said. Choos- ing the right colour for a bedroom makeover really enhanced the space and cre- ated atmosphere, making an enormous difference to the mood in the room she said. ''The bedroom is a per- sonal space where you can really create your own re- treat with carefully selected colour combinations and accessories to match,'' she said. ''We each spend a lot of time in the bedroom so creating your own private retreat where you can truly relax and unwind is essen- tial for a good night's sleep.'' Her top tip --- find a colour that makes you feel good when you wake up in the morning and one that suits your possessions. ''In the bedroom it's nice to choose a colour that is flattering against your skin.'' The thing she loves most about her bedroom is the light. Her bedroom makeover can be viewed at: www.dulux.com.au. Blue colour psychology: Blue gives a room the illu- sion of space, is said to lower blood pressure, slow breathing and create a cool- ing and peaceful atmos- phere. Behavioural charac- teristics of blue include loyalty, responsibility and creativity.
