Modern bedding and cushions throw a hit of the unexpected into this room.

  • Neutral bedroom with burnt-orange accents

    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

    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.

  • Neutral bedroom with yellow striped headboard

    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.

    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 white guest bedroom with day bed

    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.

    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.
