Colourtrend Interior Design Forum interview with Regina Rogers Fallon.
Adventures await in an indoor tree-house-inspired bedroom created by Regina Rogers Fallon. Regina is famous for painting absolutely everything, and she does not disappoint with this roomset, breaking all the rules and employing her limitless imagination to create a wonderland any child would love to escape to.
“The inspiration really was just colour. I just wanted to deliver something completely different, and get people to see that they should step out of their comfort zone a little bit.” Using the textile on the bed as a starting point, Regina selected five different Colourtrend paint colours to create a vibrant, rambunctious colour scheme that’s all about play. “If you looked at the five pots of paint together, most people would say they wouldn’t go together, they wouldn’t sit with ease. They all have similar tones and I just believed that it would work.”
The oak flooring on both the floor and wall, as well as the armchair, have all been painted in Colourtrend’s Tropical Heat 1082. This is red orange that is easy-going and not too overpowering, while Colourtrend’s chartreuse green Rain Boots 0802 covers the other wall and the tree-shaped bookshelves. The headboard and bedside lockers are painted in Colourtrend’s Lava Lamp 1033, which is a cheery orange that complements the red of the walls and bed while distinctly standing out. The blanket chest is singularly striking in Colourtrend’s Billowing Smoke 0583, matching the grey tones of the textiles. Not content to leave out the lovely blue colour from the bedspread, Regina painted the wardrobe in Colourtrend’s Indian Necklace 0695 and was not afraid to use each and every colour in the hand-cut 3D poster board leaves blowing across the wall.
When designing a room for your own child, Regina encourages us to “be adventurous, have fun, everything in this room was either cream or white when I bought them. The only design element in here is colour.” How easy is that?
