Blues are the most calming of colours so it is a great choice for a bedroom where you want people's state to be relaxed. The only thing to guard against is making the room too cold, as blues are cool tones, so warm counterparts should be used. In this first floor master bedroom, as the room is an unusually large for central London (27ft x 17ft), I added oversized white ceramic lamps with large-scale yellow lampshades. These tie in with the vibrant yellow in the fireplace painting. Yellow and blue are a wonderful colour mix, reminiscent of sky and sun. Yellow warms the blue and provides a little burst of energy. It is an infectiously happy colour. People often think that space needs to be filled, but negative space (if you have enough square footage for it!) can be very luxurious. This blue and cream rug by Martin Lawrence Bullard is so beautiful I just wanted to allow it the floor space to be one of the main focal point of the room. Not covering the rug in furniture also makes the sitting area of this bedroom feel expansive and spacious. The original ceiling is Listed and protected and therefore can be touched or altered in any way.
