EASY ELEGANCE

An or­di­nary bed­room is now a cosy re­treat, en­hanced by a com­bi­na­tion of the most beau­ti­ful colours from the Du­lux Con­sid­ered Lux­ury pal­ette.

It’s time to re­think the con­cept of lux­ury. For­get bling, ex­trav­a­gance and an ex­cess of pos­ses­sions; rather turn your fo­cus to sim­ple, ev­ery­day lux­u­ries: a home where friends and fam­ily can gather, a space where you can es­cape and feel safe – like this gor­geous bed­room.

Us­ing the Du­lux Colour of the Year, Steel Sym­phony 2, and shades from the Colour Fu­tures™ Con­sid­ered Lux­ury pal­ette, these built-in bed­room cup­boards have been trans­formed into an at­trac­tive fo­cal point, set­ting the tone for the rest of the room.

Prov­ing that paint goes be­yond walls, Du­lux Lux­u­ri­ous Silk™ with its mid-sheen fin­ish was used on the cup­board doors – each one was painted in a dif­fer­ent shade from the Con­sid­ered Lux­ury Pal­ette and with the ad­di­tion of new door­knobs, the cup­boards now boast a sub­tle yet so­phis­ti­cated look.

Du­lux Steel Sym­phony 2, an ev­ery­day blue se­lected as a top favourite by an in­ter­na­tional body of ex­perts from var­i­ous fields of de­sign, also set the tone for the makeover. Com­bined with the colours from the Con­sid­ered Lux­ury Pal­ette, this bed­room is now pure bliss.

Once the cup­boards had been painted, tex­tured throws and scat­ter cush­ions in soft pas­tels were in­tro­duced to com­ple­ment the tran­quil, pared-down pal­ette. A plain white pen­dant with wooden de­tail is un­der­stated yet strik­ing, and the knit­ted ot­toman of­fers cosy ad­di­tional seat­ing.

Keep it sim­ple for a stylish sen­sory ex­pe­ri­ence.
