Relaxed but glamorous bedroom with deep pink bed

Relaxed but glamorous bedroom with deep pink bed

Create a glamorous bedroom with beautiful jewel tones. Turqouise and deep pink play off each other perfectly. A hint of pattern adds to the energy, but blocks of black keep the scheme grounded. A colour palette as fearless as this needs furniture to match, so choose a ‘hero’ piece – a show-stopper bed or sofa that’s at the heart of your scheme.

Aqua bedroom with leaf-print bedding

Aqua bedroom with leaf-print bedding

Tone a bold palette with elements of white to maintain a balance. If your furniture isn’t already white, don’t hit the shops immediately. Painting over wooden furniture is a good way to repurpose it for a new scheme. Leaf-print bedding has been carefully chosen to complement the wall colour and brings a natural touch to the space.

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

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!

Lovers of the outdoors will adore this nature-inspired bedroom.

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.
