Grey bedroom with chic dressing area

Grey bedroom with chic dressing area and ornate mirror

Everyone dreams of having a beautiful dressing area and this room shows that it needn’t take up much space. The table and stool are pretty compact. It’s the mirror that makes the dressing area seem much bigger than it is, with its super sized proportions and glamorous ornate detailing. Wall space isn’t floor space, after all.

Grey bedroom leading out into pink hallway

Grey bedroom leading out into pink hallway

Consider the flow of your home. Some people like to have the same colour throughout for continuity, but others like every room to have its own unique character. Whichever side of the pendulum you swing, make sure that your spaces coordinate in some way. Pink and grey are great companions, so the hallway and bedroom here go really well together, despite their different styles.

White bedroom with yellow-print cushions

Create a coordinated look with table lamps and cushions in matching colours. Another great idea to take from this bedroom is the use of bedside tables rather than cabinets – they’re wonderful space-savers. Black and white prints make for a characterful finishing touch.

Dark green attic bedroom with feature wallpape

Dark green attic bedroom with feature wallpaper

There are lots of noteworthy things about this attic bedroom: the feature wallpaper that helps to zone the space; dark green walls that provide a strong backdrop; the painted white floorboards that brighten everything up… Not to mention the skinny sofa tables that double as bedside tables in a compact corner. We love the colourful cushions, too.

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.

Modern grey bedroom with patterned cushions

Modern grey bedroom with a variety of patterned cushions

Choose wall lights if you want to keep bedside tables free from clutter. No bedside lamps also means that you can choose smaller bedside tables, which is ideal in a compact space. This neutral room has a very relaxed feel, thanks to the soothing grey textiles. A combination of patterns creates a focal point.

Unsure about paint colours? Then taking a two-tone approach to decorating might just work for you. This room features half grey and half white walls.

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

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!

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.
