“Artwork does not always have to be a print or painting”, says Noël. Try using objects or sculptural elements, either hung on a wall or arranged on a shelf above the bed.“The use of taxidermy and a statement bedhead in this bedroom offers an understated presence without being too obstructive,” she explains, while “the addition of colour and print in the bed linen brightens and lifts the space”.

Not sure if you want to take a huge leap with red in your bedroom? Red accents is your answer. Bring in this spirited tone via a bold rug, an accent chair, beautiful bedding, scatter cushions, or even lampshades. If you’re happy with the first few options, continue this approach by adding more pieces (in other red hues) over time. But similar to the red accent wall, use the colour in more than one place to really get the right feel for it (and to see how it looks in various light) before making your final decision.
