Love this bedroom

  • Paler, primrose shades have a quiet elegance, and work particularly well with soft greys and pewters.
  • A four-poster bed is the ultimate in glamour – opt for a sleek, Scandi inspired design to keep your scheme charming and contemporary.
  • For a relaxing effect, restrict the accent sunflower shade to details, such as bed linen or accessories.
  • Add typography to walls for a personal touch – try a sleep-inspired theme, or use your initials.

Good Idea

In a muted colour scheme, it’s important to add texture. Combine chalky matt paints, ribbed knits and luxe fabrics.

 

Styling tips

Add an easy-to-make canopy for an instant feature. Simply cut patterned fabric to size, hem and then drape over a four-poster bed.

Use reflective materials, such as glass accessories and mirrored furniture in modern designs, to create a bright and airy room.

Blissful Bedding

Combine block colour with simple prints and floral motifs for a luxurious place to sleep.

 

Flower Power

A few individual blooms can make a real impact, especially when displayed in sculptural vases.
