What colour is your bed or headboard?
As a bed and its headboard form the focal point of a bedroom, a good interior design tip for bedroom colour design is to pick out accents from these and incorporate them into your main colour scheme. This could mean choosing an accent wall to paint or wallpaper, whilst leaving the others a more neutral shade.
Whether you decide to contrast your accent colours, or match them, the process will help to add detail and depth to the overall look of the room.
Try accessorising with colour
Rather than picking paint for a bedroom makeover, you may wish to opt for a neutral bedroom colour scheme, and then accessorise with colour.
Accent colours can be introduced courtesy of rugs, cushions, throws, linens, artwork and lampshades. This is an ideal way to test the boundaries of your attitude to bold colours, without committing to a more permanently adventurous colour scheme. You never know, next time you redecorate your bedroom, you may decide to be a little more daring. Or maybe you will pare it back even more.
