Handmade pieces ooze with love. So wrap yourself in lovingly made sheets and quilts, and fill your bedroom with DIY creations you’ve poured your heart and soul into for the ultimate sleep sanctuary…
Could you DIY your bedroom? Yes you can! The No Chintz team were invited to create a DIY Bedroom showcase for the Brisbane Craft & Quilt Fair, October 8-12, 2014, and the results were truly inspirational. It was a goldmine of DIY projects, from doona covers and fitted sheets to valances, cushions and lampshades. “With our DIY Bedroom, we hoped to inspire people to use their creative talents and skills to design their own personal bedroom space,” explains No Chintz Visual Merchandiser Lisa Llavero, who designed the room with No Chintz Creative Director Chrissie Jeffery. Here’s how you can create the ultimate dreamy space using DIY Kits, colour, fabrics and taking your sewing skills to the next level. Get creative!
Use DIY Kits to Get you Started
Whether you’re a seasoned crafter or a novice, DIY kits are a great resource to ensure you get fantastic results with your sewing projects. “With the help of our DIY recipes you can completely personalise your bedroom based on a colour scheme that inspires you,” explains Lisa. “We have a fantastic range, from DIY Quilting Kits, to Lampshades and Swedish Blinds. Our new DIY Quilt Kit, $230, using the ‘Blockprint Brights’ scheme (below), was the showpiece and inspiration behind our DIY Designer Bedroom. We focused on the bed, offering kits to make your own doona cover, fitted sheets, bed valance and assorted cushions. They’re fantastic for both pro’s and novices alike because they provide exact measurements, step-by-step guided instructions and are tried and tested to ensure they provide exceptional results.”
Add a Splash of Colour
Colour is a great enhancer of mood, so it’s important consideration is given to any room when redecorating. The No Chintz DIY Bedroom showcases an example of a happy, super stylish room you’ll be happy to wake-up in. “Our scheme was inspired by our new quilt, ‘Blockprint Brights’, which uses colours of turquoise, orange, pinks and highlights of yellow for a cheerful scheme with a hint of 50s retro,” explains Lisa.
