If you love the seductive simplicity of white and still want to ring some changes, consider its perfect complement, black.
Think of a dark room - moody, relaxed, introspective. Having dark tones in the bedroom is restful, the room seems larger, and if the rest of your house has lighter colours, you can feel the switch in atmosphere as soon as you walk in the door - you are in your private space.
If you want to go all-out, paint your walls, even your ceiling, and add the absolute sophistication of black linen curtains. Myriad sheers will give you daytime privacy, while our Orkney curtains can be drawn at night. If you want complete darkness for sleeping, consider a blackout blind, they are next to undetectable when they are rolled up.
Think about texture, natural rugs, a throw. Sheets can be black: see our Noir, White, or try the crisp contrast of our Smooth Linen Bordered sheet, with its bold black edge, teamed with Colorblocked Pillowcases.
