Soft & Soothing

Soft and soothing colours like Pale Powder, Teresa’s Green and Green Blue are perfect for creating a relaxed and calming environment. The slightly muted shades of French Gray, Light Blue and New White also work really well in creating a soothing effect.

Couples are often drawn to Cream (with a hint of yellow for the ladies and a hint of grey for the men). However, for a more feminine feel, you could try painting a bedroom in Calamine with a Cinder Rose ensuite, or for a more masculine room you could use Stiffkey Blue in the bathroom alongside a Skylight bedroom.

Add Accent Colours

Adding accents of colour is another great way to update a bedroom. Choose colours that complement your existing wall colours and use them on furniture to create a whole new look and feel in the room. Strong colours such as Churlish Green and Pitch Blue, are great for adding a pop of colour to rooms that feature a more neutral backdrop.

Create a Feature Wall

Wallpaper feature walls look great in bedrooms, especially when used on the wall behind the bed. Try our Samphire design for a delicate and tranquil feel. Use it on the shorter wall if want to make your room appear more square and cosy than it is.

Dark & Dramatic

Finally, if your bedroom is very dark, don’t fight nature; use a strong colour like Brassica or Railings to create real drama and intimacy.
