Decorating ideas so beautiful you won't want to go to sleep – well, not straightaway

In the right colours, bold graphic designs and beautiful botanicals make for a surprisingly restful combination



Choose an accent colour and weave it through wallpaper, curtains, cushions and accessories for a cosy, cohesive look.



Choose two complementary colours and go to town with them! Teaming them with white walls and a simple window treatments stops them becoming overwhelming.



Sit period pieces, such as this art deco lamp and side-table, with retro-inspired modern furnishings for a contemporary look.



Soothing blue walls and matching curtains help tie this room, with its antique bed and vintage luggage, together.
