Lovely linen (changed often!), invest in the best you can afford, so you can sleep easy – you may prefer cotton, you might go for linen, you might lust after silk. Whichever you choose, it’s the quality that counts. If your colour scheme is pure white, this is your chance to add a bit of personality into your space, be it with patterns, mismatching colours or geometric shapes.

Add opulence, play up your bedroom’s assets, whether it’s a beautiful period mantlepiece or wide windows, and emphasise a room’s proportions with a few striking pieces. In this case an elegant chandelier anchors the space while a Venetian-style mirror adds a note of glamour. In a compact space, don’t be afraid to opt for fewer, larger pieces of furniture which will make a greater impact than smaller pieces.

Install more than one lighting circuit so that you can switch out the lights at the bedside without the need to cross the room. A dimmer will help create a serene evening ambience while dimmable downlighters work well when task lighting is needed. If space is limited, opt for a wall mounted lamp with an elegant shade like this one, freeing up space on the bedside table. Opt for a warm yellow quality of light, rather than a cool, blue light. ‘Make sure lighting helps to visually maximise the space too,’ advises Mary Barber-Fray of Mary Barber-Fray Interior Design. ‘For example, try lighting the narrower sides of the space to provide a sense of width, whether with wall lights or tiltable recessed spotlights. Choose lampshades that allow light to reflect upwards if you need to give some height to a low ceiling too.
