Your bedroom is your haven. It is your place of peace. It is also the room of the house where you have the freedom to be most expressive of your inner self. If you are thinking of redecorating your bedroom, now is the time to pull out all the stops. If you’re not sure which direction to take, here are some design trends for the bedroom that may inspire you.
A trend to return to nature is apparent in all aspects of interior design and the bedroom is no exception. Give your bedroom a calming, natural look by incorporating wooden and woven furniture. Think of getting a wooden bed paired with a Vienna straw or woven wicker headboard for a look that is on point yet classic.
Canopies give a bedroom a cozy look…and they’re not just for children. To get away from anything overly childish, avoid frills and opt instead for lux materials like velvet and stainless steel.
Lush and opulent textiles are coming back in a big way and there is no better place for them than the bedroom. Think of custom velvet bedframes, brass and lacquer nightstands and silk drapes to make your bedroom one that is suitable for royalty.
Give your bedroom a playful touch by incorporating DIY Art. Create your own or choose a design that is bright and cheerful, if not a bit amateurish in appearance. Some have chalkboards that double as headboards for transitory art that is sure to put a smile on your face.
A bedroom should provide a calming presence with plenty of space. However, if your bedroom is small, you can still give it the illusion of spaciousness. Declutter where possible and save space by providing smaller night tables and a daybed rather than one that is full scale. This will also give you plenty of opportunity for displaying statement pieces if you want to be a bit outrageous.
Monochromatic color schemes are a great way to provide a soothing atmosphere in your room while making it appear open and airy. Whites and cool browns are recommended.
Nothing will give your bedroom an elegant appearance like layered bedding. Create this look by providing several pillows, throw blankets, bed skirts and canopies that drape elegantly over the top of the headboard.
Having different lighting options in your bedroom not only helps to set different moods; it’s practical. Make sure your overhead lighting is bright for when you are getting dressed and that you have plenty of toned-down options for more intimate moments. Chandeliers are also being seen in bedrooms more often to give them a touch of old school glamour.
Your bedroom is a true expression of your personality and creative designers will be sure to make theirs as attractive and stylish as possible. Hopefully these current trends have set you on a path for a décor that will work for you. Sweet dreams and happy decorating!
