Reinvent pink’s sugary image by choosing a punchy shade to highlight a stylised motif, such as this laser-cut headboard – a modern take on traditional bedroom florals. Keep the design white so you can swap the pink for another colour to change the mood.  

Get the look: The laser-cut Scroll headboard design is from Cutting Technologies and has been painted in paint from Designer’s Guild. Find this bedlinen at The Conran Shop.
