Bed­room re­treat per­fect Mother’s Day gift

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - HOMES - CON­NIE OLIVER

EVEN though Mother’s Day is still a month away, I wanted to get you in­spired early to sur­prise mom this year with a bed­room makeover.

Moms do so much for every­one else that they rarely pam­per them­selves. A fresh, re­lax­ing bed­room re­treat is a great gift for any­one who needs a place to re­ju­ve­nate.

This lovely Ben­jamin Moore bed­room boasts calm­ing vi­o­let hues that are lovely and re­lax­ing. This is just the kind of room busy moms need.

In or­der to cre­ate a re­lax­ing space, you should be­gin with a sooth­ing colour. The wall colour in our fea­ture room is a Ben­jamin Moore colour called Vi­o­letta. Colours in the pur­ple fam­ily are of­ten used in places like spas be­cause of their sooth­ing qual­i­ties. It makes sense to use sim­i­lar colours in the bed­room. Other rest­ful colours you can use in­clude soft green, light to medium blue and pink.

Try to get a hint from mom as to where her pref­er­ence lies. You might be able to as­cer­tain this from her cur­rent bed­room colours and co-or­di­nates. Some­times though, a com­plete change is war­ranted. In this case, re­mem­ber that sooth­ing colours are the way to go. You may find a bedding set, draperies or wall­pa­per pat­tern that you can use as a jump­ing-off point for colour.
