Neutral bedroom with floor to ceiling windows

Neutral bedroom with floor to ceiling windows

The simplicity of Scandi schemes can make them look stark, so offset plain white walls and simple wooden furniture with luxurious layers of throws and cushions. Plants or flowers are also great for adding colour to a neutral bedroom.

White bedroom with wall-mounted reading lights

White bedroom with picture ledges and wall-mounted lights

If you’re indecisive, make picture ledges your friend. They’re great when you fancy a change and want to swap artwork and accessories around. Add character with a mixture of prints, too. Sticking to a mainly monochrome palette makes a combination of geometric, striped and tree patterns work together.

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.

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

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

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.
