If you’re looking for a bright and airy neutral bedroom, consider using a colour such as Skimming Stone, an off-white paint that works well with whites and browns. You could use half-wall panelling to break up the walls, or simply paint half the walls if you want to save on time and budget!

Decorate a small bedroom with light neutrals such as white and light cream to make your space feel brighter and bigger. Layer your creams and whites with a soft grey to add some contrast to avoid your room from being too light-toned, like this gorgeous design that uses a soft neutral white scheme to create a relaxing space.

Another way to style pure brilliant white paint in a bedroom is to layer muted browns and grey for a warm touch to the space. This can be done through bedding, rugs and cushions to make the bedroom feel cozy and snug, like this design above.

For a minimalist neutral bedroom, be selective in your colour scheme. Keep it simple with two or three colours that go well together. For example, this lovely design above uses all-white walls with little wall decor, while the bedding, floor and rug all bring character to the space through textiles and patterns.

Layerin beige and brown can make a bedroom feel warm and snug, while still feeling neutral and calm. This beige bedroom design is a lovely example of incorporating pattern and texture into a neutral scheme whilst being full of character.

Grey is a calming colour to use in the bedroom, especially a light grey, which can make your space feel bright without being a sharp white colour. Grey is also perfect for a neutral bedroom because you can match it with any colours you like! We love this gorgeous design above, which uses soft woods, minimalist furniture and lots of textiles and fabrics to make the space feel interesting and unique.
