In this lookbook, Dezeen has selected ten bedrooms that are unified in their use of bright and bold colours, ranging from hot pink to mint green and canary yellow.

A Tokyo hotel room that is swathed in bright pink, a Sydney bedroom that proves blue is tranquil, and a dark forest-green-toned bedroom in England all make a feature of their colourful interior schemes in different ways.

This is the latest in our lookbooks series, which provides visual inspiration from Dezeen’s archive. For more inspiration see previous lookbooks featuring living rooms decorated with cowhide rugs, underground bedrooms and kitchens that combine stone with wood.
