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.”
As a lot of homeowners are picking an all-white or grey backdrop for the bedroom, red is a wonderful way of invigorating this setting in an instant. Most often, it is the wall behind the bed that is splashed with a focal colour. What’s more, a red accent bedroom wall becomes even more striking if the rest of the space is as minimal as possible.
When it comes to adding a touch of vivacious energy and romance to a room, few colours can hold a candle to red. This striking hue is one of the best tones to highlight an architectural feature, give more prominence to a space filled with boring neutrals, and just ensure a more vibrant style overall.
However, not many people dare to add this brilliant colour to their bedrooms, as they’re too scared that it might overwhelm the space. And if there’s one space in the house that needn’t be overwhelmed, it’s the bedroom, since its main purpose is to calm and relax us.
