Sponging the Bedroom Walls

Bedrooms usually have a very simple design, with little furniture and white walls, the bed being the centrepoint of the room and with little focus on the rest of the room. That can be partly explained by the importance given to the living room and the fact that the bedroom is supposed to be private , so kept only for the eyes f the owners. Any way, since you only sleep in the bedroom, you don’t need a very sophisticated design, so you keep things simple so as to ease the mind and sleep. However, you can use a few tricks to make your bedroom look special with very little effort. I am talking about sponging.

Sponging is a very simple technique used when painting the walls of your house. You simply take a sponge and dip it in a different colour than you have on the walls or maybe a different shade (either lighter or darker). For example you can use dark green on top of light green walls or gold on yellow walls, etc. The sponge will leave a soft and nice mark behind on the painted wall and will add a touch of sophistication to your bedroom. A good suggestion would be to sponge paint only the wall at the head of the bed and keep all the other walls white and maybe match the curtains and the rug with the same colour.
