2. Use on-trend grey as a neutral backdrop
Grey is the colour of the moment, and popular with designers because of its versatility. This neutral works well with bright colours, pastels and darker hues, or can feature as part of your bedroom colour scheme ideas in a variety of shades.
If you start with a grey paint colour on the wall, try a different shade for your grey bed frame or headboard. A good way to break up different greys is with white – choose a white chest of drawers or a white sideboard, and accessorie using complementary teal, pink or another bright shade in your choice of vases, cushions and lighting.
Likewise, pale pastels are charming against grey, while metallics introduce drama. Think silver, gold and copper, which work seamlessly with greys, teals, yellows and pinks. This gives scope to add wall art or mirrors with silver frames, a copper ceiling light and gold cushions. Grey will never be boring when used in the right way.
