Use lavender and green paint to create a relaxing bedroom design. The soothing colour duo takes a cue from nature-inspired items such as lavender fields and lilac blooms.

Transform the bedroom into a spa-like space using pastel green and lavender shades. Update tired furniture items with paint and stencils to create a personalised decor. Incorporate hints of white and vintage pieces to infuse the bedroom with a chic style.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Choose to paint the bedroom walls either all lavender or all green. Choose a soft green shade that will coordinate with lavender room accessories. Enhance lavender walls with soothing green leaf patterns, or green walls with lavender flower designs. Use stencils to create the designs around the perimeter of the room, directly under the ceiling, much like a border.

  2. 2

    Separate two-tone walls with a decorative wallpaper border. Paint the top half of the walls green and the bottom half lavender. Hang a wallpaper border featuring lavender plant or ivy vine patterns around the centre of the room, to separate the colours.

  3. 3

    Splash an outdated wooden dresser with light green paint for a coordinated look. Replace the drawer pulls to match the new look; choose charming porcelain pulls, featuring purple floral designs.

  4. 4

    Cover a worn wood vintage vanity table with lavender paint for a sweet, girlish style. Paint the vanity chair with a coordinating hue. Enhance the painted chair with a plush white cushion, featuring purple and green floral patterns.

  5. 5

    Paint the posts of a princess-inspired canopy bed white. Use stencils and green and purple paint to create delicate lilac designs on the posts. Enhance the bed with a lavender comforter and green decorative pillows.
