Blue-and-white coastal bedroom

Create a calm and relaxing bedroom in shades of coastal blue and white.

Take a subtle striped wallpaper as your starting point and use it on a feature wall behind the bed to make it the focal point of the room. Use slimline shelves as a headboard to add tailor-made storage for bedside essentials and accessories. Line the back of the shelves with a co-ordinating small-scale paper in a tonal shade of blue — one roll should do it.

Finish your scheme with crisp white cotton bed linen teamed with accent cushions and a throw in a deep French navy.

Accessorise with white ceramics, driftwood, bleached wicker and shells.
