Here are 3 top tips from the Emily Wardman, Textile Designer at Julian Charles to transform your bedroom into a comfortable, colour haven.

1. Monochrome for the home

Black and white provides a lovely contrast and is a striking choice for a bedroom. It's an easy way of creating a fresh and modern statement. Fresh white walls will give your room an expanse of light, creating space and vibrancy to your room. Teamed with the new on trend monochromes of greys and blacks, the impact is stunning. This look will also give you the opportunity to add highlight colours of fuchsia, mustard or teal to add an instant flash of colour depending on your mood.

2. Go bold

Be brave with your prints and fabrics for the ultimate style statement. From contemporary florals to exquisite jacquard designs, you can create drama whilst maintaining a cosy luxurious feel to the bedroom by adding a mixture of beautiful fabrics from velvet and satins to detailed embellishments, to add depth and style to your room.

3. Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize

Small additions to your bedroom can create a look and feel that can change your entire room. Embroidered cushions, colourful quilted throws or even a new pair of curtains, can make a difference. Adding touches of colour through a well-placed vase of flowers, candles or some scatter cushions. These simple changes can give your bedroom a homely yet fresh vibrant feel without being overpowering.
