It’s the room we spend most of our time, and it should feel tranquil, peaceful and private. Bedrooms are hugely important in terms of styling, and when it comes to bringing different trends into your room, it pays to start with the big items. Your bed should always be the focal point of the room design. Pay attention to the materials of your bedhead and surrounding furniture, and select soft furnishings to complement the colour and texture of the hard items. Pick two or three coordinating colours, or different shades of one colour, to mix and match.
Creating a mood board with your favourite colours, materials and patterns can be a great way to kickstart your makeover – remember soft colours will inspire calm, and brights will bring energy. Black-out curtains are also a must-have for the perfect bedroom and a great night’s sleep. As a final step, inject your own personality into the design with wall art and trinkets – find a statement print for over the bed, and finish off the whole room with special little items such as candles for ambience (or romance), plants for homeliness and lamps for reading.
