This bold bedroom is a lesson in colour play. A great scheme for adults and teens alike, it's balance of shades creates a cool look with a dose of fun. Take a few pointers from this palette and you'll have even more get-up-and-go every morning.

Why it Works

Grown-up and stylish (but not too serious), this scheme cleverly unites both brights and greys. A chic grey anchors the room, providing a solid base for a contrasting zesty green adjacent wall, plus a riot of colourful accents, to pop against. Mid tone greys work well against brighter shades, so opt for a shade that sits in the middle of the tonal spectrum and keep your complimentary shades down to just two or three as this room does, to keep your scheme looking tight.

Get the Look

Recreate this look with a zingy combination of Moroccan Velvet 3, Lime Zest 2 and a dash of Tangerine Twist. Add a dramatic bed upholstered in a berry shade (this is Button & Sprung's Elizabeth bedstead in Linwood Omega Pink, £1060 Button & Sprung) for a shot of pink, scatter with orange cushions and accessories such as Ikea's Henrika cushion cover (£5), and you've got a bedroom with a serious twist. Rise and shine!
