Want to wake up a sleepy bedroom colour scheme with some bold colour? Let us inspire you to add a bright burst of block colour or pattern to your bedroom with our beautiful design ideas.
The housetohome experts have all the know-how to help you achieve the latest trends, from feminine pink florals to vintage candy stripes and masculine shades of grey.
Bring your bedroom to life with a combination of pattern and bright colours. Choose to paint the walls a gorgeous deep shade and then mix up your design with patterned accessories and soft furnishings.
The key to getting this look just right is to combine small patterns in the same tones as your walls. Complimentary colours will also help to tie your design together for a seamless style that looks completely natural.
If you prefer something a bit more minimal but still bright and homely, avoid more than one block colour and instead opt for a pattered hue in a single design. Stripes are a great way to achieve this as they can be used in so many different ways. Mix horizontal stripes with vertical in the same hue for a striking finish. You can even add stripes to your ceiling for a cocooning effect that is just right in the bedroom.
If you’re feeling really brave, why not try introducing some bold artwork or a wall mural in a busy and bright print to your bedroom? Keep the rest of your colour scheme within the same tone, or choose crisp whites to make sure your focal point stands out.

Add a touch of colour to your bedroom with these bright ideas
Incorporating a large-scale canvas into a bedroom scheme will instantly create an impact. Choose strong co-ordinating colours for walls and accessories and mix with crisp whites to brighten the scheme.
Broad stripes instantly lift the mood and when used on the ceiling, they create a cocooning effect. The mixture of horizontal, vertical and diagonal stripes works well here because they are all the same hue. Similar single four poster beds Leporello Living Canopy fabrics C&C Milano
If you add colour to a bedroom scheme it does not have to be on the walls. Choose patterned bedlinen and combine with bold block colours for an instant update. Similar four-poster bed The White Company
A bold, unapologetic piece of furniture ? such as this headboard ? makes a big statement in a small room. Contrast strong yellow with rich tones of red and floral patterns. Alcoves either side of the bed are fitted with shelves, doing away with the need for space-hungry bedside tables.
Bring a summer mood into a gloomy bedroom by painting the window frame in an evocative shade. Create a deep border, extending the paint beyond the frame if necessary, then hang sheer lace panels in the same shade to diffuse the light.
With just enough colour for impact, this bedroom is romantic as well as relaxing. A stunning headboard takes centre stage against the pale backdrop, while an eye-catching stripy bedspread adds another layer of colour.
Introduce geometric style into your bedroom scheme with a striking headboard. In this room, all-over patterned upholstery is kept in check by painting the walls in a solid background shade that’s a slightly darker green than the fabric. Mixed with cool-white accents, the diamond geometric design leaps out for instant impact.
Make your bed the focal point with a dramatic headboard and bedlinen. Here, rich colours are picked up in the buttoned pink velvet headboard, fitted bedspread and cushions. While they’ve opted for a pink lampshade and carpet, they’ve kept the walls white so it doesn’t become too overpowering. Orange accents bring an exotic touch to the look.
Sumptuous fabric, retro artwork, Moroccan-inspired shapes, and just enough colour for impact create a bedroom that’s eclectic as well as relaxing. A stunning striped headboard takes centre stage against the pale backdrop, while an eye-catching satin bedspread adds another layer of comfort.
The sunset shades of the spectrum (pinks, oranges and yellows) could jar with each other, but pale-grey flooring and a dash of black keep them grounded in this bedroom. Using big blocks of colour, rather than bitty pattern, prevents the look from feeling overloaded.
Don’t be afraid to mix patterns and colours. Walls painted in wide pastel stripes give this bedroom a dreamy feel. The bold floral bedding adds a feminine touch, while the chandelier introduces luxury and decadence into the room.
Deep blues on the bed and floor, such as the luxe faux-fur rug, give this contemporary bedroom a dramatic edge. A framed Madonna poster and a striped colourful armchair are playful additions to this luxurious space.
There’s nothing like adding some bold stripes to your bedroom to spruce it up a bit. Make those stripes orange and pink and you’re heading to a totally different stratosphere. It’s bright up here… and we like it!
Big headboards are big business this year. Why? Well, apart from looking
rather fabulous, they’re the quick and easy way to create a striking
feature in the bedroom. It also means you don’t have to worry so much about the wallpaper…
There’s nothing like a painting a large piece of furniture in a super-bright colour to change the dynamic of a room. Without the yellow bed, this room would be very ordinary indeed. And who needs ordinary?
The bright and bold botanical mural is clearly the main focus of this rather snazzy bedroom,
but it’s the eye-popping accessories that take if from flouncy to
fabulous quicker than you can say ‘switch the lamp on please’!
I know what you’re thinking… You’re thinking ‘this isn’t such a
colourful room’. But that’s where you’d be wrong. There’s LOADS of
colour going on in this calming bedroom, just in a muted, pastel kinda way. Proof that colourful doesn’t have to mean bright…
