How a bright and colourful bed can make a bold statement for Summer

Warmer weather, brighter mornings and longer days, there’s a reason we welcome Summer with open arms. As the longest day of the year, it’s no wonder we’ll be eagerly retiring to bed for a much needed sleep. With that in mind, it’s the perfect time to inject some colour into your bedroom that’ll have you eager for bedtime. Whilst the first thought for a transformation is to paint a feature wall, change up the curtains or add accessories, many forget the impact a bright and colourful bed can make. Sunny shades like yellow are powerful, instantly adding a burst of energetic brightness, whereas purple has a sophisticated vibrancy and a sense of regality.

Whilst divan beds have previously been overlooked in favour of a fashionable bedstead, many are coming to see the versatility and supreme comfort of the modern day divan. With sumptuous upholstery, incredible craftsmanship and a diverse range of colour options, they have a look to match their luxurious level of comfort. With a base and mattress that provide the optimum support, the standout designs combine with functional drawers and ottoman options for a practical storage solution. From lemon yellow to rich marigold, deep plums to bold violet, these are beds with the wow factor….


Wisley, 18200 Super King Size True Edge Deep Divan Set (Medium), colour: African Zanzibar 75457


Wisley, a luxury divan set crafted by leading brand Harrison, features a huge 18,200 count spring mattress, complemented by a True Edge Sprung Base with 2500 pocket springs that guarantees a deep slumber. The revolutionary spring system and triple side-stitching provide an incredible level of support with a warm and cool side mattress that will see you through the colder weather too. It’s also great for allergy suffers as it’s finished with Acti-Pro, which neutralises allergens. With the bed base and headboard available in fabrics like soft touch burnt orange and a jewel tone turquoise, the muted yellow of Africa Zanzibar pairs beautifully with exposed brickwork walls, a neutral palette and contrasting blue accessories.


Royale Deluxe 2000 King Size Divan Set, colour: Tuscan Tweed 77089


Like its namesake, Royale is pretty special. With a lavish combination of rich wools, cotton, silk and cashmere and 2000 of Highgrove’s luxury pocketed springs, the level of comfort is unmatched. The breathable stretch fabric cover, enhanced side-support and double sided mattress have all the practicalities covered whilst the pop of canary yellow of the Tuscan Tweed fabric really brings this bed to life. Against a deep tone wall like this navy blue, the brightness of Royal shines through. Try finishing the look with metallic pieces and mirrored accents for a glamorous and striking aesthetic you’ll love waking up to.

For a rich and opulent look, the woolly Damson fabric is the perfect pop of purple for Summer. Accessorised with jade greens and bold florals, you can create a sanctuary for sleep that doesn’t compromise on style.
