The bedroom should always feel like a relaxing sanctuary. So try a neutral scheme with subtle pops of colour for your wall art. For example, the Wisteria Cornflower wall mural, £315, from Woodchip & Magnolia. This wall mural design will add that bohemian touch to your space. So together with natural textures, it’s a perfect match. Go for a rattan bed frame to match the aesthetic, and cane accessories and pampas grass for your décor.
