What would your dream bedroom look like? Conjure up your fantasy bedroom and it is probably an opulent and glamorous boudoir-style room, with a bold design and luxurious accessories.
Choosing a glamorous bedroom scheme allows you to be really adventurous with the design. Go all out with rich colours and patterns and be brave with a daring theme that will turn your current bedroom into something really special.
Whether your tastes are dark and moody, or you prefer an all-white backdrop, or even a colourful scheme, there is a way to incorporate your tastes into a glamorous bedroom.
Choose monochrome decor to create a masculine room that is totally modern and chic. Go big with black, adding in striped accents and a subtle print on the walls to warm up the room.
Or, for a completely different take on glamour, choose white French-style furniture and country-chic accessories to give a neutral colour scheme a luxe makeover. Patterned wallpaper and ornate extras will up the ante on any neutral hue.
If you prefer something a bit brighter, choose rich and dramatic colours to give your bedroom a glamorous makeover. Deep, sumptuous reds, greens and blues will instantly add an extravagant touch to any bedroom. Choose to focus on one colour and even one feature. A red bed cover, a green padded headboard or midnight blue throws and soft furnishings will achieve the opulent look you are after.
Complement a neutral scheme by picking a bold, rich accent colour and using it to highlight just one area. This jewel-toned throw perfectly brings attention down from the classic wooden-beamed ceiling and onto the central bed area, without being too overdone.

Subtle botanical prints warm up this masculine monochrome room. The bold stripes, dramatic walls and hotel-style symmetry mean that this is one room we’d love to wake up in. Keep the bed neat and tidy for the full, chic effect.
Choose a range of harmonious textures and finishes for a layered, luxurious look. Here, the dark finish of the four-poster bed and the textures of the throw, create a warm colonial look.
Create a pretty, understated look with elegantly embroidered bedlinen. Keeping all other details to a minimum will ensure your bedroom is calm and serene, for a good night’s sleep.
Love sleek style? Keep colours and details to a minimum and play with bedside lights for a minimalist look that still screams style. This black and white bedlinen is perfect for finishing off a masculine room scheme.
A small room doesn’t mean you have to scrimp on style. Vertical grey and white stripes are fun and help create an illusion of space. A rich, jewel-toned bedspread and glass-topped bedside table both add to the bold, playful look.
