Red is a great choice for an accent wall, and not only for the bedroom. Think about how many living rooms, kitchens, dining rooms, etc. you’ve seen where a singular red wall becomes the main focal feature.
Heatherly Designs’ opulent ‘Alice’ bedhead forms the basis for a contemporary modern bedroom, says Georgie.The clean lines of the lamp, frame and bedside table allow the bed to be the hero, while charcoal velvet cushions and a throw “brings the luxurious look together”.
Red is surely welcome in any design style, but how do you know where to use it depending on your bedroom’s design? Contemporary designs incorporate neutral elements with pops of bold colour, which often includes red. Opt for bright red shades in a pillow, rug, blanket or throw.
But in the beautiful bedroom image above, Julia was styling a bed linen campaign for Sage and Clare – who specialise in vibrant, bohemian, hand-crafted homewares – “and so I decided to let the bed linen be our actual artwork”, she says.The trick here was to use “a number of styles and patterns that complement one another, rather than a prescription packet of linen.”
