LOOKS WE LOVE: Four of the best bedrooms

Moody greys

One of the most versatile colours in the palette, grey continues to be huge news in interiors. By mixing tones, shades and textures, go all out grey in the bedroom and you can create a sultry and romantic space. Avoid being gloomy by breaking up the grey with sharp bursts of colour - in a vibrant bouquet of blooms, a metallic framed mirror sheepskin rug - and accessorise with our Pimlico or Hepburn armchairs in dark grey.

Eastern promise

Choose a neutral colour palette in the bedroom and a calming sanctuary awaits. But make no mistake, decorating with neutrals is a tricky business. Too cream and you risk being overly twee, too white and your room could feel cold and clinical. The key is mixing textures and we love this Indian inspired room that combines wood, metal, hessian and linen with a taste of the exotic. Our beautiful mother-of-pearl cabinets, handcrafted in India, are the perfect statement pieces to add interest and texture to a pale colour scheme.

Retro brights

You know what we said about not playing it safe? Well, how fabulous do these yellow armchairs look set against a huge turquoise wall? This bedroom looks grown up and sophisticated, yet it benefits from a generous injection of fun. That's right up our street and our Calvin armchair looks like the perfect fit for this inspiring room. Our Milligan chest is another favourite when it comes to retro fun. And if you can't have fun in the bedroom, where can you?!

Glamorous luxury

Navy blue, ruby red and punchy gold screams glamour and the beautiful combination of rich colours in this room make this an ultra sophisticated boudoir. There's a touch of art deco about this styling and the sumptuous velvets and clever mix of contrasting patterns set it off perfectly. Our striking Nigella wall mirror and Pimlico armchair would sit perfectly in this room, even we do say so ourselves!
