Typically we tend to say that small rooms shouldn’t include dark colours, however, things have now turned on their heads and many designers are suggesting that using a dark colour or a feature wall or as accents can give a room depth and character. Deep damson duvet cover sets works really well with white or cream with the intensity of the colour bringing a natural warmth to the room. Add a sequin cover purple cushion to add a little festive sparkle and shine and help your guests get into the festive spirit.
If you already have a white duvet cover the simple addition of a stylish embossed satin bed runner with give the room an instant pick-me-up, more especially if you include some plump filled cushions in different fabrics as these will bring texture into play and give a modern up-dated look to a tired looking bedroom.
If the darker shades are too much for the style of your room you have the possibility of going down the lavender and pastels routes. These soft, gentle shades are easy on the eye and can add a subtle touch of style to any style of bedroom décor. Team lavender and pastel cushions with cream rather than white to keep the look refined and elegant.
