Love this bedroom

  • Mix and match bed linen from different ranges, picking designs in complementary hues and patterns.
  • Add a headboard upholstered in a luxurious fabric such as velvet for a high-end, on-trend update.
  • Simple, stripped-back floorboards painted white complement this fail-safe colour scheme perfectly.
  • Accent the look with accessories in galvanised metal for a contemporary, industrial-style twist.

 

Good Idea

Make a feature of architectural details, such as blinds, skirting or windowsills, by painting them in a bright shade rather than leaving them white.

Styling Tip

Extend the look to all the dressings in your room – for example choose fresh flowers in the same palette, like these delphiniums.

 

Crosshatch

This relaxed, hand-drawn design adds visual texture to a tonal scheme.
