Painting a Flower Power Theme Bedroom
Fun and funky are the best ways to describe a flower power theme bedroom. If you are searching for a unique way to decorate a teen bedroom, guest room or even the master bedroom, consider using a retro-flower theme. It is a surefire way to brighten a space as it adds personality to any room. Use the simple tips and tricks below to get you started.
There are a few different ways to approach a flower power room’s walls. You can opt for one large fluorescent flower painted on a black background, a group of funky flowers around the room, or you can paint the walls white and choose two main colors for the flower decor. If you choose the last option, pick colors that are bold and vibrant with the energy you are trying to create in the room. Hot pink and bright orange are two popular colors for such a look. Decide on the style you would like to create, but do not start painting the flowers just yet.
Begin by preparing the walls with a coat of high-quality primer after you fill in any holes and patch them. By starting with a clean, smooth surface both the primer and the paint will adhere better and more evenly to the wall. Depending on the paint color that is being covered up, you may need to apply two coats of primer. If the walls are already light in color, you may be able to use a paint/primer combination. They work well and cut down on cost and time needed on the project.
Select a solid paint color that will best accent the flower design you will putting on the walls. White is the most popular color, but other options include bright green, pale blue and pink. Think about the colors of the flowers when making your decision. Edge and paint the walls once, let them dry and determine whether or not a second coat is needed. Always let the first coat of paint dry before painting the second one.
Bring on the Flowers
With the background color done and the walls completely dried, it is time to paint on the flowers. Try sketching out the design on a sketch pad before attempting to draw the flowers on the wall. It is always better to make a design mistake on paper than on a freshly painted wall. A flower power theme can accommodate large, bold flowers, as well as, smaller chains of colorful buds. Daisies are the most popular design for flower power themes and can be found on accessories like throw blankets, decorative pillows, and linens. Select the style and color of flowers that works best for your room.
A flower power theme bedroom will instantly brighten up a room and create a sense of cheer. While it may be a more unconventional look for a master bedroom, it can be done. It is, however, a great theme for a teen or tween’s bedroom, as it can adapt and carry the girl throughout her teen years. Have fun playing with the colors and experimenting with the flower power look.
