1. Begin with a soft palette on the walls and a neutral flooring choice with a taupe carpet.

2. Add a feminine silhouette with a delicate white bedhead.

3. Layer key furnishings in white and natural timber for a light and bright look.

4. Introduce vibrant colour through soft furnishings that can be changed over time – a textural garland, colourful print bedlinen, toys and artwork.

5. Make a key investment with a classic designer chair that won’t date.

6. Mix up the look with a change in bedlinen and accessories.
