A Luxe Parents Retreat Makeover

One Room Wonders

Well it’s been a minute but we’re BACK with an all new series of One Room Wonders!

After last year’s series of epic room transformations (you can revisit the first series here), this year we’re excited to bring you four NEW rooms and very different looks, all transformed with Surround by Laminex.

Surround by Laminex pre-primed MDF wall linings are available from hardware stores nationally in a huge range of both classic and contemporary profiles – and the best bit is they come primed and ready to paint. From classic V-groove profiles to contemporary scalloped panelling and more, these panels are so versatile, and can be truly transformative in any interior!

We’re kicking off this series with a dreamy, luxe bedroom makeover. We took up the challenge of updating a simple, undecorated parents bedroom in an inner city home – and turning it into a calming sanctuary, that feels a little like a fancy hotel room!

The hero here is the Surround by Laminex Demi Round 40mm panelling. This classic yet contemporary scalloped timber profile adds some drama to this room, lending that ‘hotel-like’ feeling to the space.

 

We took the Surround by Laminex panelling right up to the ceiling, and selected a soft, warm grey palette. Yes, you can paint these panels in situ with a roller – but we find for best results it’s a good idea to pre-paint one coat before installation, and then do a second coat once they’re on the walls (a thick, fluffy roller works great on these panels).

After the panelling was installed and painted, it was time to turn our attention to the window treatment and furnishings. We introduced a sheer curtain in silvery grey (Warwick Fabrics ‘Aesop’ sheer linen in ‘Smoke’), to soften the window frame and bring an additional layer of texture into the space. We were lucky enough to have this curtain custom made by Zenn Design – ensuring the perfect size and gathering. Don’t forget – curtains should always skim the floor!

And finally, we introduced a few new furniture pieces to really elevate the styling in this space. The Orson Round Buffet by Globewest was the perfect fit here – its curved design complements the curves in our demi-round wall panelling, and the boucle tub chair (also by Globewest) adds the perfect luxe finishing touch.

And that’s it – a simple transformation, that really does completely change the atmosphere in this space!

Surround by Laminex is a range of modern, pre-primed MDF wall linings, available in a great range of both classic and contemporary profiles – ready to paint. View the full range here, and start reimagining your space!
