Add a touch of colour to your bedroom with these bright ideas

Want to wake up a sleepy bedroom colour scheme with some bold colour? Let us inspire you to add a bright burst of block colour or pattern to your bedroom with our beautiful design ideas.

The housetohome experts have all the know-how to help you achieve the latest trends, from feminine pink florals to vintage candy stripes and masculine shades of grey.

Bring your bedroom to life with a combination of pattern and bright colours. Choose to paint the walls a gorgeous deep shade and then mix up your design with patterned accessories and soft furnishings.

The key to getting this look just right is to combine small patterns in the same tones as your walls. Complimentary colours will also help to tie your design together for a seamless style that looks completely natural.

If you prefer something a bit more minimal but still bright and homely, avoid more than one block colour and instead opt for a pattered hue in a single design. Stripes are a great way to achieve this as they can be used in so many different ways. Mix horizontal stripes with vertical in the same hue for a striking finish. You can even add stripes to your ceiling for a cocooning effect that is just right in the bedroom.

If you're feeling really brave, why not try introducing some bold artwork or a wall mural in a busy and bright print to your bedroom? Keep the rest of your colour scheme within the same tone, or choose crisp whites to make sure your focal point stands out.

We have lots of lovely blue bedroom ideas.

Black and grey shades can work well in a bedroom as long as they're used sparingly and combined with strong, bold colours.
