Modern bedroom with a wabi-sabi influence
Japanese designs on furnishings make a statement in an otherwise understated scheme. In this bedroom, a boro-inspired bedspread creates an eye-catching focal point.

For those looking to indulge a love of colour and pattern, this whimsical palm design with its deep sunset pinks and fresh greens serves as an exuberant focal point. Plain bedlinen keeps the look balances, while a shell pendant hints at distant shores.

Wrought-iron furniture with slim, pared-back lines is a good match for heavily patterned wallpaper as it doesn’t detract from the room’s focal point, while headboard cushions, luxurious linens and a beautifully plump eiderdown soften the look.

Sumptuous layering of texture and pattern is the key to this serene blue-and-white bedroom scheme. A bold headboard fabric creates a focal point, complemented by a curtain and cushions in similar shades, while the valance and throw add essential warmth and softness.
Yellow is a wonderful colour for the bedroom, making the start of every day feel like a sunny one. The simplicity of this scheme is embellished by a floral curtain on the bed frame, hung using brass eyelets and leather thronging for contemporary country style.
In this oasis of indigos and blues, the small design of the wallpaper makes it appear to recede, bringing the more exuberant patterns on the bedspread and curtains to the fore. Oversized table lamps and the dramatic four-poster bed have an architectural dimension that lends structure to the scheme.
