2018 is all about going bold with colour – so we're daring you to take the plunge, and paint your bedroom walls in a immersive marine blue. Trust us, you'll find it extremely restful – and it looks great with grey-grown furniture and fresh white fabrics.

To get you started on your styling journey, we've picked out five key buys from the Ideal Home collection at Very.

1. The bed

You can buy this modern country bed frame with or without a mattress. Either way, it's excellent value for a piece of furniture we'd love to wake up with. The version above is cream, as opposed to the grey bed used in our shoot – but a grey version will be available soon.

2. The rug

A painterly effect gives this striped bedlinen a less formal, more relaxed effect that's perfect for a summer bedroom. Add a knitted rug to the foot of the bed to stave off the cold on chilly evenings.

4. The bedside table

You really can't go wrong with Shaker-style furniture. Its classic look will serve you well for years – if not decades. Two drawers give you plenty of places to stash books, an eye mask and ear plugs – to block out your other half's snoring!

5. The scatter cushion
