Colour Palette: Neon Coral & Grey Bedroom


The zest for pastel and neon schemes is showing no sign of fading and I’ve recently received a number of emails from readers who are looking for ideas on how to dip their toes into the look without making their scheme look forced or overly styled. This bedroom with its pastel pink and apricot palette punctuated with flashes of neon coral and yellow is the perfect example of how to combine these two opposing shades. This approach to the scheme works so well because the softer pastel shades are used across the majority of the space and the stronger neons are used sparingly to introduce visual depth. Notice how the partition wall has been papered in a delicately patterned wallpaper – this is a key element of the room because its dusty grey and pink colourway ties the pastel and neon shades together to create a harmonious scheme. Have you brought any pastel or neon shades into your home?

    what a pretty, lovely room! funny I didn’t even feel the coral is that neon when paired with the soft soothing grey. the bright yellow gives the room an instant shot of interest, while the pastel pink and apricot palette acts as a serene backdrop and the greys to add depth to the overall look.

    I like the girl posing in front of the mirror with the colour of her jeans recalling the grey of the chair and the colour of her top recalling the lime of the bird cage!

    What a refreshing palette-neon doesn’t belong in my home, but I have an appreciation for it! I also grew up in the 80’s so I had too much of it then, ha.
