  • 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.

  • White bedroom with bay window seating area

    Take advantage of a beautiful bay window if you’re lucky enough to have one in your bedroom. It’s the ideal spot for a tranquil seating area. Keep everything feeling spacious by choosing a seat that takes up only a third of the space available and team it with a compact side table with a slimline feel so that your room has space to breathe.

  • Sumptuous bedroom with William Morris wallpaper

    Calm blues can offset the busyness of a lot of pattern, so indulge in some really beautiful prints and turn your bedroom into a walk-in work of art. The wallpaper here is an original William Morris design – a velvet armchair next to the bed is a good match for the colours in the paper and adds an opulent feel.

  • Yellow bedroom with framed pictures above bed

    Frame your bed by hanging a group of prints above your headboard. Keep to the same size and colour of frame for a uniform look. Also consider the style of your pictures – ideally, it’s best to go for works that are similar in theme and colour if you’re hoping to achieve a smart finish.

  • Pretty guest bedroom with day bed

    Turn a spare room into a versatile space that can be used as a home office and a guest room. A day bed is great for this, as it does double duty as a sofa and bed. The desk also has wheels and can be easily moved out of the way when extra space is required.

  • Traditional bedroom with yellow walls

    Create the feel of a stately home with bold yellow walls in a traditional hue. A black and white portrait above the wooden chest plus the marble fireplace lend a grand look to the scheme, too. The abundance of fabric in the floor-to-ceiling curtains makes a luxe finishing touch.

  • Elegant white bedroom with ornate bed

    With a beautiful bed like this, a bedroom needs little more to turn it into a luxurious haven. A large glass chandelier adds to the decadent feel and harks back to an era gone by. Hanging on the wall is a pretty twig wreath, which gives a contemporary touch.

  • Elegant white bedroom with French bed

    Make a simple white scheme stand out with classic French-style furniture. With their raised feet, curved shape and ornate carvings, French beds will add a little luxe, without the need for colourful flourishes. Distressed finishes are very popular right now and keep the look current.

  • 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.

  • Serene blue bedroom with birdcage wallpaper

    Create a calming space for you to slumber with pale duck-egg blue on the walls. Blue is well known for its ability to relax the mind, so it’s ideal in a bedroom. Teamed with a striking wallpaper in a similar shade, this pretty scheme also features pale gold highlights in the curtain fabric and mirror.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Traditional bedroom with a cherry blossom theme

    Create a welcoming look in a guest bedroom with a warm shade of yellow. Curtains and a long bolster cushion in a delicate cherry blossom design add to the charm.

  • 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.

  • Master bedroom with falamingo theme

    The flamingo wallpaper sets the colour tones in this restful scheme, which is echoed throughout the room on cushions, lampshades and curtains. Covering only one wall with wallpaper prevents the room from looking too busy, while the white walls, ceilings and bed sheets offsets the grey nicely.
