We all want to inject a little colour into our bedroom but it's one of the hardest rooms in which to get the balance right. Here's some gorgeous inspiration to show how it's done.
The confidence to add colour to your bedroom comes with building from a safe base of neutrals and textured finishes in your walls, flooring and architectural features. Layer soft folds with bed linens and throws, then punctuate with cushions and the odd statement accessory.
Subtle touches of purple mixed with dark moody charcoals introduce a refined, subdued palette. Pattern does the heavy lifting here, with larger expanses such as wallpaper and curtains turning down the colour dial, counterbalanced by soft furnishings and cushions.
Pops of colour in this master bedroom seem brave but closer inspection yields the ability to change it up at will and with trends and seasons - artworks and cushions carry the brightest hues, with natural timbers on walls and floor breaking up an otherwise all-white base. Textured throws and a hide rug up the ante.
Again a base of all white in this loft bedroom allow the architecture to shine, with accessories and soft furnishings bringing in the luxe look with texture and colour. Lush velvet throws are juxtaposed against weathered concrete flooring and monochrome and metal sit side-by-side. The bedspread makes a statement in an opulent jewelled, deep peony pink, offset by its pale pink counterpart layered above.
This bedroom sees a bigger investment in colour for the longer term, with designer rugs and an upholstered bedhead anchoring the colour scheme. Strong complimentary colours feature in cushions which can be changed out down the track.
Effortless on the surface, this bedroom is a study in considered style, with monochrome everything, save for the chunky throw and feature cushion reflecting the warm, dusty apricot tones.
This bed, upholstered in a natural linen at its head enjoys a beautiful colour scheme of blue and mustard, anchored with bed linens and an antique chest at its foot. With it's soaring, timber-lined ceiling, the room remains peaceful in all white.
Maximum impact is achieved by this bed, bedecked with a patterned upholstered bedhead against unadorned walls. This slate grey might otherwise have overwhelmed the space but the shocking pink dyed rug balances the effect.
