Offset pattern and printMoving away from a potentially cold blue and plain palette and towards a warmer, earthier mix of colours and prints can work wonders for a boy’s decorating scheme, as this bedroom demonstrates. The rich, ink-and-green tartans and muted, pebble grey wallpaper are inviting and restful, while the classic, chrome lamp, trunk bedside table and graphic, entomological poster make for an added punch of personality. The key to mixing up your patterns is to stick to at least one common colour – here it’s the grey that holds everything together.
