SUMMER TREND LET YOUR BEDROOM BLOOM FRESHEN YOUR SPACE IN STYLE Janita Singh Use bright, bold colours to give your bedroom a fresh new feel for summer. SUMMER is all about dressing the bed in floral colours and bright, bold designs. Fresh whites, metallics and pas- tels are dominating the bedroom scene. Bedding and accessories in pinks and purples, as well as primary colours like red, blue and yellow provide bold accents. While colour is vogue, bed linen is also soothed and calmed by using white as both a background shade and base colour. Bedroom linen specialist Logan & Mason says beautiful white is great for creating the illusion of a much larger space even in the smallest of areas. Style experts say in terms of pattern, stripes are popular. Bed sets featuring delicate flowers across creamy white is a lighter take on traditional floral patterns. Pastels run riot, from soft mauves through to delicate mints and light sea tones. Pale silver greys make a come- back as luxurious base colours, while crisp metallics give a de- signer spark, helping to make the bed a true centrepiece. Achieving this colourful look is easy. For summer, add fresh seasonal colours that capture the bright sun and clear blue skies. Walls and curtains -- Paint walls or a feature wall in colours that suit your mood. Yellows are popu- lar. If painting is too big a project, then hang curtains in floral fab- rics and colourful prints and add colourful tie backs. Fun furniture and accessories -- Furniture will certainly add to the mood of the room. Try repainting it in bold colours. Fashion underfoot -- Bring fresh- ness with a mat or rug in simple colours. You don't want the rug designs to compete. Extras -- A vase with freshly cut flowers, colourful wall art or a distinguished bedhead will bring freshness right to your bedroom. RUGS GO FOR BOLD ON FLOOR COVERS Details: aurahome.com.au RUGS are a really effective way to boldly tie a room together, make a statement and add personality. This season's rugs do just that. AURA creative director Tracie Ellis says summer rugs are light, luxury underfoot with bold pat- terns and bright colours. Rugs make excellent floor cover- ings even in summer because they are easy to move, simple to clean and make excellent covers for wooden floors. Ms Ellis says summer rugs have to be delightful and durable. Peo- ple will enter the house straight from outdoors, so you want to make sure you have the right material for the footfall. AURA has just launched its summer rugs. ''These are hand woven by amazing artisans in Jaipur showcasing summer's bold de- signs and colours,'' Ms Ellis says. Rugs keep your home colourful and provide luxury underfoot.
