Make a small room feel bigger by limiting furniture to essential pieces only. This gunmetal bedstead and preloved cabinet look extra stylish for having all the space to themselves. A cool grey palette helps to open up the room too. If you can, keep the space under the bed clear – it’s a good spot for a guest’s suitcase – and give your minimalist scheme a little atmosphere by hanging cotton ball fairy lights around artwork or a bedstead.
Using variations of one colour is a sophisticated approach. In this bedroom violets, from lilac pink to deep aubergine have both masculine and feminine appeal with a bold panel at the head of bed like a swathe of the night sky. On the blush layered bed a harlequin throw exhibits a modern take on patchwork quilting. The geometric shapes pick out the rectangular lines of the abstract design rug below. A panel of ballerina pink curtains at the window softens the strong contrast in tone.
