As yourself how you want to feel within the space, and select colours accordingly. Colour is an emotive language, and will help dictate the mood of a space. If you want your bedroom to be a place of inspiration, select colours that are uplifting and invigorating to you. Yellow, for instance, has been proven to be a mood-lifter. If, like me, you prefer the bedroom to be a space of calm and quiet, turn the colour volume down and opt for a softer palette as opposed to bold. If you are influenced by trends, some of Pantone colors this season could be good options, with lilac being a popular choice.
Beautiful bedrooms often have layered beds. They can be layered in varied shades of the one colour using texture as the point of difference, or alternatively layered in colours and patterns for visual punch. I prefer a mixed bed that is curated by its owner with a mix of multiple brands as it adds a hit of personality to the room. My own bed, although harmoniously linked by colour, has five brands on it at last count. This mix has allowed the bed to shine and be the art in the room. Be brave enough to try your own combinations and be blown away with the variations you can achieve.
