Be unique

Far from being bland and boring, a neutral colour scheme creates an ideal backdrop for teenagers to stamp their personality. As they grow up, a neutral palette allows them to adapt the look and feel of their bedroom decor by changing wall art and soft furnishings to reflect their age, interests and passions.

Rule breakers

This contemporary bedroom decor avoids bright paint colours that can be easily outgrown and instead pairs together two warm neutrals, duck egg and taupe. The subtle colour palette is the perfect blank canvas for displaying photos, posters and pages torn from magazines, as well as showcasing interesting patterns and textures in cushions, rugs and bed linen.

Spice it up

Neutrals can be spiced up by contrasting them with splashes of an accent colour. You might like to try colour combinations of duck egg and taupe with a hint of deep orange or canary yellow in an item of furniture, such as a bedside lamp or desk chair.
