A neutral colour scheme is a wonderful starting point for any bedroom, especially one that needs to cater to both feminine and masculine styles. Choose cool neutrals like dove grey, taupe and pewter for a crisp, fresh feel or warm neutrals like chocolate, sand, beige and tan for a cosy atmosphere. Elevate the luxe factor with a feature wall painted in bright, saturated colours (choose hues that you both love) or experiment with graphic patterns, like a geometric paint effect above the bed.

Eliminate space squabbles with carefully defined storage areas. You and your partner will inevitably have different space needs and determining these early on in the decorating process will make for smoother sailing in the future. Zone out your separate spaces using decorative touches, like personalised bedside lamps or mirrors, or splash out with individual bedside tables that showcase your different personalities.
