Give your bedroom a glamorous makeover with these design ideas

What would your dream bedroom look like? Conjure up your fantasy bedroom and it is probably an opulent and glamorous boudoir-style room, with a bold design and luxurious accessories.

Choosing a glamorous bedroom scheme allows you to be really adventurous with the design. Go all out with rich colours and patterns and be brave with a daring theme that will turn your current bedroom into something really special.

Whether your tastes are dark and moody, or you prefer an all-white backdrop, or even a colourful scheme, there is a way to incorporate your tastes into a glamorous bedroom.

Choose monochrome decor to create a masculine room that is totally modern and chic. Go big with black, adding in striped accents and a subtle print on the walls to warm up the room.

Or, for a completely different take on glamour, choose white French-style furniture and country-chic accessories to give a neutral colour scheme a luxe makeover. Patterned wallpaper and ornate extras will up the ante on any neutral hue.

If you prefer something a bit brighter, choose rich and dramatic colours to give your bedroom a glamorous makeover. Deep, sumptuous reds, greens and blues will instantly add an extravagant touch to any bedroom. Choose to focus on one colour and even one feature. A red bed cover, a green padded headboard or midnight blue throws and soft furnishings will achieve the opulent look you are after.

Choose a rich accent colour
Complement a neutral scheme by picking a bold, rich accent colour and using it to highlight just one area. This jewel-toned throw perfectly brings attention down from the classic wooden-beamed ceiling and onto the central bed area, without being too overdone.
