Love this bedroom

  • Break up the wall behind the bed with a painted peg rail and shelf about two thirds up. Paper above the rail and paint below it in a co-ordinating shade.
  • Pick a matching fabric from the same range as the wallpaper, but in an alternative colour, and use it to make a scatter cushion for the bed.
  • A pale putty carpet in soft wool creates a light and luxurious feel in a bedroom.
  • Metal trunks at the end of the bed are perfect for storing shoes, accessories or even your hairdryer, out of sight.

Good Idea

Don’t be afraid to mix patterns; as long as the colour palette is the same it will work, and the end result is a confident-looking scheme.

 

Styling Tips

Add texture and colour to white bed linen with a trio of knitted throws in shades picked out from your wallpaper design.

Teaming wallpaper with painted walls in a tonal colour is a great way of using a bold design without it dominating the room.

Perfect Contrast

With such a bold pattern on the walls and curtains, keep large pieces of furniture white so as not to distract. Add a barely there contemporary wirework chair.

 

Pretty Practical

As well as creating a focal point, a peg rail with shelf gives you the perfect spot on which to display and hang treasured pieces.

Finishing Touches

Little details give your room character; a ceramic bird perched on a lampshade, a posy of spring blooms on the bedside table and bold cushions all finish this.

 

Pistachio & bold teal

A refreshing colour combination ideal for making any bedroom a stand-out room.
