Kirrily Johnston’s home makeover with Dulux
Inside look at Kirrily Johnston’s home makeover.

One of Australia’s leading fashion designers, Kirrily Johnston, has partnered with Dulux to create her own bedroom sanctuary.

“The bedroom is a personal space where you can really create your own retreat with carefully selected colour combinations and accessories to match,” says Kirrily.

“I live in an old 20’s bungalow style home in Bellevue Hill and I wanted the room to have an old worldly kind of bohemian feel so I chose a duck egg blue (Dulux Tenzing in half strength).”

Kirrily describes how choosing the right colour for a bedroom makeover can really enhance the space and create atmosphere. “Colour makes an enormous difference to the mood of a room. It creates a little world, which I love,” she says.

“We each spend a lot of time in the bedroom so creating your own private retreat where one can truly relax and unwind is essential for a good nights sleep.”

Kirrily’s top three tips for choosing colour in the bedroom are: “Find a colour that makes you feel good when you wake up in the morning and one that suits your things. Also I think in the bedroom it’s nice to choose colour that is flattering against your skin!”

Kirrily says the thing she loves most about her bedroom is the light. “I have windows on two sides of the room and the sunlight in the morning and throughout the day is just beautiful.”
