Kylie Minogue at Home range, a double duvet cover, £75.00, from Seymours of Darlington


Seductive setting


Transform a stuck-in-a-rut bedroom palette with greys in decor or silky fabrics to bring an air of relaxation to an uptight setting. Hang drapery panels which puddle on the floor to frame your windows with a layer of textured sheers behind them for the ultimate in privacy.


“We’ve seen a fast-growing trend for using grey in bedroom interiors over the past year,” says Jeremy Borlant, designer and partner at Seymours of Darlington. “Grey tones in fabrics and wallpapers create a glamorous and striking effect, especially paired with pattern and texture.


“It’s a chic, streamlined look which also taps into the five-star ‘hotel’ trend which will be very evident in interiors this autumn.


Turn on to grey: If passion for the look is running high, you’ll want a dream bed such as a Nautilus period period-style sleigh bed, from £5,990, from And So To Bed, which can be painted in any shade from the Farrow & Ball range - including grey of course!


Dress a bed appropriately in shades of grey Astoria bedlinen from the Kylie Minogue at Home range, including a double duvet cover, £75, from Seymours of Darlington. Matalan’s Grey Polka Dot duvet bedlinen collection, from £20.


Simple luxury touches are essential such as Laura Ashley’s velvet Louise runner, £40, or a grey floral, Chrysanthemum rug, from £140, Isme.com.
