George at Asda have created a colour wheel full of advice on how to create a colour scheme for your house/room. All you need to do is pick your wall colour and you get a host of other colours to consider when matching furniture and room accessories!

This sounded great in theory but I had a bit of a problem. All my walls are white! So instead I tried to match the dominant colour in the room when looking to accessorize.
To practice with the colour wheel by reviewing some of George Home products I chose my son’s bedroom. This has white walls with blue accessories, but was looking rather tired and dull.
With blue being the dominant colour I went for more blues and turquoise. Although the colour wheel didn’t tell me to, I kept the white in there too as I like it and it makes the room look fresh and clean.
This was my plan…..
What do you think?
I think it looks lots better and much more cohesive.
The bedside light runs on batteries and looks so cute in the little glass jar. We are going to invest in a few of these fairy light jars for the garden too. The beside table is practical and sleek and the duvet is a bargain £8 and is reversible in case you fancy a change!
We went for a plain cushion in the end (there is a lot going on in this room) but I think the colour selector did a good job with the turquoise and the blue. It looks good. I cannot wait to get the beanbag in too.
A simple and inexpensive room makeover with George Home, helped hugely by their colour wheel!
