Set the mood: regal colours
Going for understated glamour is all about choosing a colour scheme that feels opulent and sophisticated, but that isn’t overpowering. We love rich colours like plum, navy, teal and burgundy although it’s important to use deep colours like these sparingly to hold on to the ‘understated’ part of the description.
A great way to incorporate these decadent colours into your bedroom without overwhelming the senses is with an accent wall. To really make it sing, you could go for a textured wallpaper instead of a block of colour, for an intricate surface that creates a feeling of depth in the room. But if you’re still not convinced about going for a bold wall, don’t worry. Creams and egg-shell shades can look glamorous when paired with the right furnishings.
For example, a beautiful upholstered bed like this Aurora Bed Frame in velvet would work wonderfully with pale walls. Finish the look with a matching navy bedside cabinet or a navy one-seater sofa placed nearby for a chic, glamorous feel. Highlight the deep navy with matching curtains, and then use neutral creams, beiges or light browns (or a metallic like gold, rose gold or silver) for everything else to keep the look restrained yet sumptuous.
