This allows us to do whatever we like without worrying about other people’s potential negative reactions. When you think about decorating your bedroom and want to create a cosy nook that might not reflect the latest fashion – that’s great. Want to try an unusual colour? Go for it; if you have an idea that’s a bit left field and don’t know which room to try it in – your bedroom is the safest room to let rip with your wildest ideas.
My personal choice of colour palette frequently ebbs towards darker, richer tones, particularly during the winter months, because these tend to evoke a sense of cocooning warmth and comfort. This dark and alluring charcoal-panelled hotel room I recently stayed in creates instant drama, whilst contrasting crisp white bedding elevates the scheme further.
