If you’re looking to add some colour into your bedroom for autumn/winter, then green and blue should be top of the list. Rich shades create a statement look that’s full of character, and you can add more depth by incorporating a mix-and-match of textures such as faux fur, feathers and the material of the moment, velvet.


Victoria Atkin, co-founder of Atkin & Thyme, says: ‘Set to be the fabric of the AW16 season and beyond, sumptuous velvet is undergoing a renaissance. It’s perfect for adding luxe, light and volume to your bedroom, and the dramatic fabric creates warmth and visual appeal’.
