Modern grey bedroom with wooden chest of drawers

Modern grey bedroom with wooden chest of drawers

Let your furniture be inspired by the great outdoors and the power of the sea. With its variety of varnishes and slightly beaten-up look, this chest of drawers is reminiscent of driftwood. Gentle greys in the rest of the palette echo the colours of the seascape painting, and result in a truly tranquil bedroom scheme.

Modern grey bedroom corner with blue armchair

Modern grey bedroom corner with blue armchair

Pair pale grey and midnight blue together if you’re hoping to create a relaxing scheme. These colours are very serene and work really well together. A block-coloured armchair is a great way to inject some interest, but on top of the visual benefits, you’ll also have a comfy spot from which to enjoy a good book. Bonus!

Dressing area with artfully painted wall cladding

Not into wallpaper? Wall cladding could be just the alternative you’re looking for. Here, just a small area of wall has been covered with planks, then painted in blue, grey and white to create a painterly effect. Hooks offer a great spot for storing favourite accessories. To the right is a narrow console cum dressing table, which fits the space perfectly.

Neutral bedroom with nature-inspired decor

Lovers of the outdoors will adore this nature-inspired bedroom. From the fern-patterned curtains to the butterfly cushion and lampshade, there’s a beautiful combination of natural prints here that makes for a relaxing look when teamed with the earthy palette. Stripes and checks add interest and detail, while remaining relatively neutral.

Pale-grey bedroom with bedding in mix of blues

Pale-grey bedroom with bedding in mix of blues

Combine blues and greys together to create a calming bedroom scheme. Mix up your blue tones so that the look remains natural, rather than overplanned. Where you don’t have a lot of space on both sides of the bed, hang shelves instead of having a bedside table for a practical way to provide surface space, without taking up valuable floor area.

Grey bedroom with midnight blue accessories

Create a plush scheme with jewel-coloured accessories. Here, a rich blue throw picks up on the original blue tiles of the fire surround and adds warmth to the cool colour palette. A mix of block-coloured and patterned cushions complement this lovely blue hue, too. French-style bedside tables make a style statement that adds to the luxurious look.

Monochrome bedroom with map wallpaper

Monochrome bedroom with map wallpaper

Decorate your monochrome scheme innovatively with an antique-map wallpaper. With its swirling pattern, it creates plenty of visual interest, a feeling of movement and reflects an interest in travel. The four-poster bed has been carefully chosen and its clean lines simultaneously manage to add wow factor to the room without stealing attention away from the paper.

Compact bedroom with traditional mirror

Compact bedroom with traditional gilt-edged mirror

Create a sense of space in even the most compact bedroom by planning your storage needs carefully. This bedroom has a bespoke shelving unit that has been built around the headboard, which is ideal for keeping all those bits and bobs that would otherwise have no home. There’s not a huge amount of space to walk around the bed, but the addition of a full-sized mirror tricks the eye into believing there’s more room than there is. With its ornate design, it makes a gorgeous feature, too.

Grey bedroom with lime-green accessories

Grey bedroom with lime-green accessories

When it comes to neutral walls, grey is a fantastic alternative to white – choose the right hue for the natural light in your room, and it can add a touch of depth and warmth to a bedroom. Emphasise that feeling by layering various shades of grey, and introducing pops of colour. Here, lime-green accents lift the neutral palette beautifully, and draw attention to the fireplace by pulling out the tones of the tile surround.
