3. Scarlet and aquaIf you gravitate equally towards both sides of the spectrum, balance fire and water with scarlet and aqua. Consider an exposed red brick wall as your centrepiece and paint the surrounding walls in refreshing tones of white and blue to douse the intensity.

Double up with a bunk bedVertical space is gold in a shared bedroom. By stacking your beds, you’re left with enough room for other things, like a study table or a play zone. In this transitional Ahmedabad bedroom, Studiovistara casts the bunk bed against a panelled teal wall. Notice how complementary bed covers in blue and white display each bunk in its own light.Take a look at zany bunk beds your kids will love
An open secret – especially when it’s such a pretty design. The open shelves, tucked in the alcove between the deep window and the wall, allow easy storage and display of books, photographs and more.Architect: Studiovistara
1. FlooringIf you are experimenting with this material, try sticking to patterns that have smaller chip fragments and muted colours. With such a large canvas as the floor, smaller chip fragments are quite visually appealing. Neutral colours open out a space – but don’t be afraid to experiment with brilliant-hued chips; then draw the same tints into the décor of the room, as has been done in this home here.
Brick red and aqua blueThe rustic exposed brick finish is complemented with subtle aqua in the recessed walls and the door, creating a serene look in this bedroom. The cleverly spaced-out blocks of aqua blue effortlessly blend with the vintage brick wall. Also, the vertical stripes on the door and the horizontal brick placement bring in an intriguing clash of patterns. See how exposed bricks make these 9 homes shine
