Escaping to the bedroom and pulling up a comforting duvet has long been a satisfying way to decompress at the end of a high-pressure day. But when the pandemic shook up our day to day life and sent anxiety levels soaring, having a bedroom that could serve as a calming retreat suddenly seemed more important than ever.
So we’ve been looking at ways to re-invigorate our sleep space and we’re sharing our favourites below!
Where previously, muted, neutral tones have been popular choices for our bedrooms, we are now seeing a huge move away from minimalist interior schemes with people being more daring with design choices. From statement wallpaper and creative wall finishes such as polished plaster through to bold and colourful fabrics and bed linen, it’s time to inject personality into our bedrooms.
Decorate With Regal Blues
If you are daring to go dark, navy or royal blue is a timeless classic. One texture trend that translates effortlessly into fall and winter is velvet – luxurious to look at and touch. White is the traditional accent to team with blue but to add more depth to the scheme try pops of chalky greys and taupes. Alternatively, you can warm things up with metallics.
Do not be afraid to clash textures for extra character. Embrace contrast by adding a sumptuous blue velvet rug against the rich wood flooring or a statement velvet chair.
On Cloud Nine
A trend that never goes out of style is all-white bedding. When you can swap out decorative pillows on crisp white linens, you’ll always be on trend
As well as this, Headboards are once again becoming popular, with big, bold shapes in bright colours and patterned fabrics being a go-to choice. It’s all about creating a focal point and making a real statement and an upholstered headboard will really allow you to show off your personality, whilst being comfortable and practical too.
Clear The Clutter With Clever Storage
Storage has become an integral part of bedrooms, and we anticipate that it will continue to dominate, as we aim to clear the clutter for a calm and restful bedroom.
Investing in divan beds with drawers or even an ottoman can instantly provide extra space you didn’t think you needed.
We believe as we continue to work and educate from home, the cliché of the bedroom as a sanctuary becomes more relevant and realistic. So let us know over on our social channels which bedroom trends you’ll be trying this year!
