A peaceful bedroom doesn’t have to be plain. Even an all-white space can be warm and inviting if you include different tones – look at white paint palettes for inspiration. ‘I like bedrooms to be light and airy all year round – they should feel cool in summer and light in winter,’ says Lucy Helmore of
And So To Bed. ‘It’s easy to add layers and change it up, especially if you get bored easily.’ Earth tones, wood and organic fibres bring life to a pared-down room; a hint of watercolour-style pattern draws the eye without being overpowering. Think about layering different shades of one colour rather than multiple hues – the more limited the palette, the more restful the space will be.
‘I love the Scandinavian take on a winter bedroom, introducing texture and subtle grey tones to a neutral scheme. It’s an opportunity to curate carefully chosen accessories to make the story come to life’ Adam Black, founder, Button & Sprung
