  • Guest bedroom with laid-back day bed

    Got a guest room, but want it to be multifunctional? Choosing a day bed, rather than a double bed is a great way to make the most of the space available. This one folds out into a single or double configuration, but also acts as a sofa.

  • Neutral bedroom with two-tone walls

    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. The white brightens the top half of the room, while the bottom paint adds a bit of depth to the scheme and complements the grey furnishings and accessories.

  • 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.

  • Neutral bedroom with plush grey bedding

    Decorating a bedroom can be as simple as adding a few well-chosen cushions, throws or rugs, or a combination of all three. Various shades of grey create a luxurious feel here. Walls and furniture have been confined to a neutral palette that would work with accessories in any colour you like.

  • Opulent bedroom with sumptuous textiles

    Create a sense of opulent comfort with gorgeously draped fabrics. Choose neutral hues and layer up textural fabrics for a truly indulgent scheme. A striped wallpaper in a subtle colourway adds another dimension to walls, while being neutral enough not to clash with bright artworks.

  • Welcoming guest bedroom with piles of cushions

    Layer on the luxury with snug-as-a-bug textiles. It’s a sure-fire way to make guests feel welcome. A mix of whites and greys are a great base for piling on a whole host of patterns and colours. Not sure about having a blocky bedside table? A chair will do the job perfectly.

  • Neutral bedroom with burnt-orange accents

    Neutral schemes are super stylish and versatile, but you needn’t feel confined to your core palette. A hit of colour can work really well and almost any shade will fit with your scheme. Burnt orange works its magic here and the monochrome patterned cushions do a great job of highlighting the colour.

  • 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.

  • Attic bedroom with branch wallpaper

    Under-the-eaves bedrooms have a really magical feel about them. It’s kind of like camping, but in a more glamorous environment. So why not highlight the slope of your ceiling with a nature-inspired wallpaper? Team with some quirky accessories and you’ve got yourself one bold look.

  • Neutral bedroom with yellow striped headboard

    Give a compact bedroom a boost with a brightly coloured headboard. It’s a great way to add some life to a space that doesn’t have much room for wall art or other personal touches. Matching bedside tables and table lamps keep the look consistent, as do the pairs of cushions.

  • Modern grey bedroom with wooden chest of drawers

    Let your furniture be inspired by the great outdoors and the power of the sea. With its variety of varnishes and slightly beaten-up look, this chest of drawers is reminiscent of driftwood. Gentle greys in the rest of the palette echo the colours of the seascape painting, and result in a truly tranquil bedroom scheme.

  • Modern grey bedroom corner with blue armchair

    Pair pale grey and midnight blue together if you’re hoping to create a relaxing scheme. These colours are very serene and work really well together. A block-coloured armchair is a great way to inject some interest, but on top of the visual benefits, you’ll also have a comfy spot from which to enjoy a good book. Bonus!

  • Grey bedroom with pretty feature wallpaper

    Add interest to a pale grey scheme with a pretty feature wallpaper. It doesn’t have to be a bold design to make an impact, as this understated meadow print shows. If you want to add a touch of luxury to your bed, you can’t go wrong with a large headboard and plenty of beautifully layered fabrics.

  • Dressing area with artfully painted wall cladding

    Not into wallpaper? Wall cladding could be just the alternative you’re looking for. Here, just a small area of wall has been covered with planks, then painted in blue, grey and white to create a painterly effect. Hooks offer a great spot for storing favourite accessories. To the right is a narrow console cum dressing table, which fits the space perfectly.

  • Neutral bedroom with sunshine-yellow bedding

    Want to give your bedroom scheme a bit of a lift? Then do it the easy way, with some brightly coloured bedding, such as the sunshine-yellow duvet set here. Add accents in a complementary colour, such as the blue cushion, throw, stool and artwork for a lively look.

  • Neutral bedroom with nature-inspired decor

    Lovers of the outdoors will adore this nature-inspired bedroom. From the fern-patterned curtains to the butterfly cushion and lampshade, there’s a beautiful combination of natural prints here that makes for a relaxing look when teamed with the earthy palette. Stripes and checks add interest and detail, while remaining relatively neutral.

  • Pale-grey bedroom with bedding in mix of blues

    Combine blues and greys together to create a calming bedroom scheme. Mix up your blue tones so that the look remains natural, rather than overplanned. Where you don’t have a lot of space on both sides of the bed, hang shelves instead of having a bedside table for a practical way to provide surface space, without taking up valuable floor area.

  • Bedroom corner with shabby-chic wardrobe

    Create a pretty shabby-chic scheme with a mixture of prints. Here, the pink wallpaper marries well with the floral fabrics, as well as the wallpaper that’s been used to cover the glass of the wardrobe. Neutral paint on the wooden panelling and wardrobe keep the look understated, while the pink chair provides a hit of block colour.

  • Attic bedroom in earthy neutrals

    Make your guest bedroom extra homely with earthy tones and rustic touches. Anyone would feel welcome in a warming scheme like this, with a cosy throw, comfy armchair and miniature fireplace. Keep things smelling sweet with fragrant blooms and a scented diffuser, and your guests will never want to leave. A London buses and taxis cushion injects a city vibe into this peaceful room.

  • Neutral bedroom with eau de Nil feature wall

    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.
