Break up plain walls and lift a bedroom scheme with a textural piece of art. This simple wooden cut-out design lends an exotic feel to a glamourous, hotel-style scheme. Choose a piece that is the right size to balance with the furniture in the room.
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.
