Temper a zesty citrus shade with calming grey and white for a tranquil bedroom scheme.

- 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.
In a muted colour scheme, it’s important to add texture. Combine chalky matt paints, ribbed knits and luxe fabrics.
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.
Combine block colour with simple prints and floral motifs for a luxurious place to sleep.
A few individual blooms can make a real impact, especially when displayed in sculptural vases.
