    Opt for dark tonesBe bold and paint walls in a dark colour. This look works especially well in a bedroom, as the warm hues make it feel cosy and relaxing. Enhance the effect with dark furniture, which will give the room depth and a timeless sense of style.Unsure about deep shades? See 10 reasons to turn to the dark side

    Try the reverse Surely the rule is pillows at the back, then cushions stacked in front? This bed shows how that arrangement can be mixed up a bit.

    Invest in decent bedside lampsIt’s dark, it’s cold – and all you want to do is snuggle in bed with a book and a cup of cocoa. Don’t ruin your cocoon with inferior lighting. These wall-mounted RL ’67 Boom lamps are angled for comfortable reading and leave precious bedside table space for novels and mugs, while the dark wall creates a snug, den-like feel. When buying bedside lamps, choose models with heads you can direct onto pages and bulbs that aren’t too dazzling.

The two most common weaves are sateen (or satin) and percale. ‘Sateen, as you would expect, has a smoother feel with some sheen due to the raised yarn profile in the weave, meaning that the top layer of yarn will weave across several cross-layer yarns, producing a satiny, reflective finish. Good-quality yarns are really key here to give strength to the construction,’ explains Sarah Smith of Soak & Sleep. ‘Percale feels crisp and fresh and is based on a simple weaving construction which gives an even, flat finish.’Find top tips for dressing your bed

    would like to see some tan/camel plaids to see if they might look good on the gray wall as curtains or for pillows.
