A grey upholstered bed is perfect for a luxury look try Heal's or Argos for similar and go for crisp white bed linen that has a blue border or stripe. Keep furniture sleek and smart, for example, shop for high-gloss side tables instead of traditional bedside cabinets and dress the room with navy accessories with sexy silhouettes.
For a zen-like hotel-style bedroom, opt for a backdrop of white walls and stripped white floorboards. Add a modern four-poster bed to create a centerpiece to the room and dress the bed with white and zesty green bedlinen. Accessorise with a leafy green lampshade, rug or if you're feeling really creative a floral wall stencil. Alternatively, add a bold pink floral feature wall and layer the bed with brightly coloured cushions.

Lexington's new bedding and bathroom collection, the Urban Collective Collection, (above) encapsulates the style with aplomb. The company has found inspiration in New York, more specifically Brooklyn, and, as everybody knows, New York never goes out of fashion. The Urban Collective Collection consist of a poplin bedding in three colours, white, grey and green, a graphic sham, bedspreads, throws, terry towels in white and grey and a bathrobe. The range has a pared-back feel, incorporating sober hues against crisp white, all given a lift by a flash of deep mustardy green and subtle stripes and pattern. It's designed to appeal to young, sophisticated and vibrant urbanites, who are keen to invest in high-quality pieces that will stand the test of time.
Never underestimate the value of the space beneath your bed. Even if your room has ample cupboards, shoes and bags seem to gravitate to that forgotten area, so it makes sense to use it properly. Standard bedsteads can be teamed with sturdy under-bed baskets, or even large drawers on castors. Divan beds with drawers are extremely useful, but choose one with a plain fabric cover so you don't need to use a valance sheet and can reach the drawers easily.
