Clay-coloured guest bedroom with moulded ceiling

Clay-coloured guest bedroom with moulded ceiling

If you have natural wood panelling, choose a paint shade that will complement it, rather than contrast with it. The white ceiling keeps things bright but still lets the architectural mouldings stand out. Spotlights provide lighting without protruding from the ceiling.

If you love neutrals, but want a hint of colour, this scheme could be the one for you. A soothing eau de Nil feature wall behind the bed adds character to the space without overwhelming it. Pale peachy-pink tones on the table lamp provide a gentle contrast, while being versatile enough to go with anything. The key is choosing similar tones of each shade.

Neutral bedroom with patterned curtains

Add a statement piece – neutrals can become a little one-note without a few standout objects. Here, the bold patterned curtains and the artwork above the bed boost the style stakes in this bedroom. Stacked pillows are a great steal from hotels, and really do make the space look more inviting.

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.
