The spring bedroom in three

When we think spring we imagine calm colours, lots of natural light and a words like ‘crisp’, ‘fresh’ and ‘airy’ immediately spring to mind. Agreed? Here at Neptune, it’s a season that we welcome into our homes with open arms and one of the rooms in which we think it translates best is the bedroom. So we’ve pulled together three of our all-time favourite bedroom looks so we can talk all things spring, all things sleep, and more importantly, all things serene.

The fabulous three...

...And style notes to steal

 

One
The barely-there palette

From off-whites and the palest of greys, a muted colour family is one of the best ways of making an understatement. Stick to the same colour on walls and wood so everything works together and choose accessories in a similar palette too. Weave a hint of colour into your scheme through textiles: a headboard, lampshade, cushion, end-of-bed blanket or a scattering of cushions. Right now we’re head over heels with quiet greys and dusty pinks.

Two
 The dreamy one

This interior is first and foremost defined by its fluttery canopy. A four-poster with drapes is what fairy tales are made of but they don’t always work in modern-day homes so this is a great alternative. We’ve used translucent silk voile that cascades behind the headboard and is suspended from the ceiling; it’s a look that’s dramatic yet gentle at the same time and instantly says spring, or even summer. Chalky blue paintwork, lazy stems and lots of brushed wood textures complete this seashore vibe.

 

Three
 The bold and the beautiful

Spring isn’t just about quiet colours. This bedroom’s signature style is a tale of contrast and it’s told in a way that’s bold but undeniably uplifting, cool and crisp. Be brave and dive into solid navy, tempering it with bright white floorboards and linen. It’s a look that works well in larger spaces but will triumph in smaller ones too if you remove the blue-toned rug underneath and go for a slightly lighter coloured armchair instead.
