Lovers of maximalism will find a careful mix of pattern and colour far more restful than an all-white bedroom. Limit the palette to two or three shades that work together – as in this room at Babington House in Somerset – to ensure it doesn’t feel too busy.
The colour blue can help to lower the heart rate and promote a feeling of calm and peacefulness, making it the perfect choice for patterned bedding. Evora bedding set, £54.50 for a double, Sheridan (sheridanaustralia.co.uk)
Eve Sleep’s new button-back bed frame has a trad look, but modern features, such as dust-resistant fabric and adjustable slats that let you tailor the tension of the frame to suit your body. From £599 for a double (evesleep.co.uk)
A pretty, low-key pattern that calls to mind relaxing days on the beach. Scallop Shell wallpaper, £87 a roll, Barneby Gates (barnebygates.com)
