You can’t go wrong with white

The most popular vastu-approved colours for wardrobes are light wood finish, neutrals and whites. When wardrobes take up a considerable amount of space in a room, opt for colours that look seamless and sleek. Moreover, these colours reflect light, giving the room a spacious feel.

Always avoid flashy wardrobe colours. Colours like red and black signify negative emotions like anger. Therefore, do not opt for deep and dark colours. Moreover, dark colours can make the room look flat and smaller than it is.

Balancing is the key to a great design with a colour guide, be it in terms of proportions, textures, colours or material. This room is the perfect example of how to balance your wardrobe colours and achieve a captivating look for your bedroom.

A muted shade like rose quartz works like magic with the burnished hues of wood or even with splendid whites or creams and creates a delicious mix of shades. This wardrobe colour combination is great for stirring a soothing mood either in the master or even the guest bedroom.

Wood finish wardrobes look classy and are an all-time favourite when it comes to Indian homes. More so because we all know that going back to your roots and harnessing organic tones is going to be huge in 2017.

Play match-match with the rest of the room and mirror your wardrobe’s woody accents on the TV unit, side tables and mirror frames. Play up the earthy vibe of your room by using shades of brown on the walls. Delectable shades of mahogany, cherry and oak give a twist to traditional Indian wooden wardrobes usually found in teak.

#4: Colour block

#5: Sunny rays

The ideal colour for a bright and sunny bedroom

Well, we all can always do with some sunshine in our rooms, and what better way than to introduce it in your Livspace wardrobe? Decor pandits swear that sunshine yellow is going to make a statement. But make sure you use it in the right way and in the right places.

For instance, don’t splash your walls with this sunny paint, you’ll tire of it soon. But it will uplift your mood if it finds its way onto your headboard, wall accent, bed linen or even floor rug. But we love it best when the sun shines through our very own Livspace wardrobe!

#6: Peek-a-boo
