Bedrooms should be warm, comfortable and cosy; a haven that encourages you to relax in the evening and feel invigorated in the morning. The key to achieving this perfect balance is simplicity, especially when it comes to choosing your colours. For the walls, look for a shade that makes you feel calm and centred. Soft, delicate colours are always a good choice: think dreamy lilac, duck egg blue and dove grey. Paint any trim and woodwork in crisp white to anchor the look.
Textured soft furnishings and vintage-style accessories will help to add warmth and personality to your neutral colour scheme. You could even turn a piece of furniture, like the bed or sofa, into a striking focal point by highlighting the area with a collection of mirrors or artwork.
