With neutral furniture and pretty patterns, this vibrant shade creates an inviting scheme that works perfectly with pops of opulent violet.

 Neutral Bedroom With A Vibrant Indigo Feature Wall 1

Love this bedroom

  • Use a strong colour sparingly in a north-facing room on one feature wall so it doesn’t overwhelm the space.
  • Add instant glamour with a modern four-poster bed with simple lines, such as a Scandi-inspired design.
  • Floral-print artwork on a plain wall in a contrasting colour adds warmth to the overall scheme.
  • Mirrored-glass and clear acrylic accessories will help to bounce natural light around the bedroom.

 

Good Idea

When choosing fabric to make a canopy, go for one with a small-scale design so it doesn’t overpower the look.

 

Styling Tips

To keep the scheme fresh, opt for a neutral carpet with a hint of texture – or go bold with a covering in the same shade or a bit lighter than the feature wall.

Mix bed linen from different ranges – just choose designs in complementary shades and patterns.

Dynamic Colour

Ombre designs, such as this violet cushion, are an easy way to add a dash of vibrancy. A dip-dye throw or canvas will give the same effect.

 

Sail Away

This canopy is easy to make – cut the fabric to size, hem the sides, then pin it up under the front bar and drape over the top and down the back. Use running stitch to secure in place
