Enveloping your bedroom in a serene shade of grey is a failsafe route to a soothing atmosphere, but your space shouldn’t be devoid of personality either. Bring elements of colour into your scheme with painted accessories, textiles and favourite objects, and you’ll have a bedroom that feels restful, as well as full of warmth and character.

Take a cue from House of Fraser’s autumn/winter collection shown here, and team a soft pale grey backdrop such as Goose Down with paint-dipped twigs or branches in a spicy red paint for an eye-catching contrast.

Try Curious Crimson for a similar shade. Pair with a light teal in a similar tone such as Pretty Peacock and add splashes of sunny colour with a hint of yellow – either with textiles or by updating your favourite accessories with a hit of Pharaohs Gold 3. This is grey, your way.

Try out these shades (and many others) in your bedroom with the touch of a screen with the free Dulux Visualizer app.
