1. Choose your bold wall colour

  • And stick with it!

2. Create a dynamic focal wall

  • Choose the right size bed for your space; for even smaller spaces opt out for a day bed with underneath storage.
  • To add height to your focal wall create a canopy over top of your bed with 100 per cent cotton; don’t be afraid to mix colours for a bold strip effect.
  • To save space add two bookshelves beside the bed instead of nightstands. Don’t be afraid to add lights to them.

3. Accessorize for drama

  • Bring in a lot of different textures like faux alligator, cowhide, and a geometric pattern chair, but stick to a simple black and white to balance out the coral.
  • Always a must, accessorize your bookshelves with baskets for extra storage.
  • Mirrored accessories bring in an extra glam factor to your space.
  • Lastly, simple white bedding with accent pillows really make your space pop.
