Want to bring some colour into your bedroom, but worried it may be a little overpowering? Well not to worry, as interior designer Vanessa Arbuthnott has given Belle About Town her expert tips on how to bring in colour without giving your other half a headache.

  • Feature wall

One of the best ways to bring in a splash of colour to a bedroom without it being overwhelming is by using a two tone decor design. So your favorite colours fuchsia, but you don’t want to make the room appear smaller with a darker colour? Simple! Meet in the middle, paint 3 of the walls a light light cream and have the one feature wall painted in the darker colour, it will add a nice touch without being too overpowering.


  • Canvas Art

  • Vibrant Bedding

So easy yet so effective. Why not opt for some really vibrant bedding with a beautiful design to add a splash of colour to your bedroom. Perhaps even patterned fabric to give an extra wow factor. You can also embellish plain bedding with a colorful throw or a pretty headboard.

  • Pretty Pillows

Pillows are such an easy thing to complete a room and will really add some drama. Why not go for some vibrant, unique designs which will complement the room’s furniture.
