1. Designed by Studio CourseThis predominantly grey bedroom gets a hint of warmth from woody brown furniture. The four-poster bed, white canopy drapes and vintage carpet are juxtaposed with the modern grey floor tiles and walls to create a soothing ambience. Coupled with a dash of colour from the painting, this room exudes a relaxing, laid-back atmosphere.Consult with interior designers and decorators to design your bedroom
Some dos and don’ts:Do vacuum the rug to remove loose dirt, before you begin cleaning.Do test the colour-fastness of the rug by performing a spot test on a corner of the carpet, especially when using chemicals like hydrogen peroxide.
5. Opt for quality paintsGood-quality paints will be more expensive but remember, painting a wall is a fairly long-term investment. High-quality paints have certain additives that give them a larger covering ability and durability. They go on smoother, are more resistant to fading and will be almost, if not completely, VOC-free.
11. The grey walls add just the right amount of contrast against the white, black and red furnishings, and because the colours are neither overly dark nor too light, the bedroom emerges as a fresh, soothing space.
GreyA warm grey wall colour is a good neutral alternative to a pure white or cream that can sometimes feel too sterile.

13. Inside this room with grey floor tiles and grey walls, an old-school vibe resonates with the four-poster bed, white canopy sheets and vintage carpet. The sprinkling of different browns in the room becomes more prominent when supported by a neutral backdrop.
“Reflective of an old-style design, the master bedroom is accentuated with grey Italian marble flooring, grey walls, a four-poster bed and a wooden side table and cabinet,” Shah says. The room’s grey-and-brown design with just a pop of colour from the painting ensures a relaxing, laid-back atmosphere.
