Before & After: Ordinary bedroom now a cosy retreat

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.
