Your bed should be the focal point of your design scheme, so accenting it with a new throw or bed linen set can instantly enhance your theme. For a delicate, feminine room, look for lace and pretty floral designs. For something more contemporary, go for bright colours which will really pop against neutral walls and floors. In the summer months, make your room bright and fresh with yellows and spring greens. Bold floral patterns are always popular during the warmer months, but if they are too quaint for your taste look for striking geometric shapes which lend a contemporary feel to your space. In winter, create a cosy hideaway with cosy knits and faux fur throws, and darker colours such as deep purples and plums. Finish with a scattering of cushions whose designs complement your theme.
A fresh lick of paint has the power to transform a room entirely. Choose a colour scheme and buy some paint for the walls. Try to stick to a neutral palette, carefully introducing some colour through accent pieces. Take the accent from elsewhere in the room, such as the curtains, avoiding colours that already dominate blue sofas and blue walls are not a good combination! For a budget update, use the decorators best friend new toss pillows in a shade to match for subtle colour coordination.
