Inject colour with a feature wall
If you don’t want to go all-out with bright colours, you can still bring interest to your scheme with a feature wall.
Painting either side of a chimney breast or using a bold wallpaper for a single wall can create impact without being over-the-top. In a bedroom, it’s best to pick out the wall behind the bed. You’ll still get the wow factor when you enter the room, but it won’t keep you awake! Choosing neutrals for the flooring and curtains will help balance things out too.
Whichever room you’re updating, when you pick out a bold fabric for your scheme, take a sample home with you and live with it for a few days. That way you can feel confident you’re choosing a print you’ll love.
