However, it doesn’t need to be that way. With a few key pieces it is possible to turn even the blandest bedroom into a refuge of relaxation.  

Natural inspiration

This new collection of cushions and throws are due in store from May and will bring an injection of summer colour to any bedroom. Nymans flora cushion £25; Fishbone throw, £40.


Going under

Pretty in pink

Part of an exclusive collection from STAR by Julien Macdonald, this plush velvet armchair with delicate button detail comes with brushed gold legs and will add a luxurious contemporary feature to any bedroom. £249,


Into the exotic

Combining tropical landscapes and rich colours, this collection from Prestigious combines luxurious printed velvets and embroideries with coordinating wallpapers to bring the warmth of the Caribbean into any bedroom.


Inside story
