Vintage style bedroom with subtle pattern

A pretty floral wallpaper sets the tone in this vintage-style bedroom. A chest of drawers has been upcycled with a coat of pale grey paint and a large gilt mirror above provides a focal point. Smaller oval mirrors echo the style, and the display is finished off with a quirky butterfly lampshade.

Bright, patterned blue bedroom decor

Deep blue and green bedroom with power print patterned wallpaper

For a wallpaper feature, choose a pattern that incorporates the same tones as your painted walls. Calm blues can offset the business of a lot of pattern, so indulge in some really beautiful prints – the wallpaper and curtains here are an original William Morris design – and turn your bedroom into a walk-in work of art. And while white lifts and freshens, the black bed frame acts as a mellower, more grounding accent to a blue-and-green mix.

Modern bedroom with muted palette of warm gold and grey

Modern bedroom with muted palette of warm gold and grey

Warm up a grey-painted bedroom with a contrasting golden palette. Rich wooden furniture, for example, can bring comfort and cosiness to a neutral backdrop. If you’re planning to boost texture and focus on colour, keep the rest of the space clean; bedside furniture with a simple silhouette, and a tall, streamlined charcoal headboard reinforces a sense of deep luxury. Draw golden colours through the space, and transform the room, by picking soft furnishings in bright yellows and golds.
