There’s nothing worse than a bedroom you don’t really like. It might have been beautiful once, the height of sophistication even, but now the years have passed and that wallpaper hasn’t weathered all that well.
A bedroom should be a relaxing, joyful place that you can’t wait to collapse in after a long day or spend a long Sunday morning reading the paper in bed. But don’t worry, with a few small changes, your bedroom will be revitalized once more.
Try New Color Palettes
Grey has been on the top spot for the ultimate in a neutral color for a few years but this trend is about to give way to a new set of color tones in 2018, ideal for bedroom bliss. Pale pastels are going to make the most of the light and airy spaces in your home and blue will add a sense of serenity often lost in our hectic lives. For the bedroom, a newly gender-free pale pink is going to soften the walls and send you straight to sleep.
As millennial pink has had such an impact on social media like Instagram, it’s hardly surprising that it is making a statement in modern interior design as well. However, you do need to be wary of choosing the right pink. Unless you are decorating for a little girl, bright Barbie pink has pretty much been a no since the 90s. However nostalgic you are, don’t be tempted…
Invest in a New Bed
There are no prizes for guessing what the main feature of a bedroom is and you won’t be surprised to hear that the best way to update your look is by changing the bed frame. Modern design is sleek and usually minimalist but this isn’t necessarily what you will be looking for in your own home. For a start, minimalism might look good in magazines but how often is your home really that tidy?
Be bold with your own style and go for something a bit different to the norm. If you want some inspiration, Tommy Bahama Furniture is a good place to go. As we travel further afield on holidays, it is natural that far-off places will inspire interior design at home. Embrace these influences to give your home a truly unique feel that really reflects your personality and experiences.
Everyone thinks about color, but how often do you think about the textures in your bedroom? If you have a limited, neutral palette, adding texture is vital to creating a luxurious feel and introducing interesting counterpoints as well. Combining hard surfaces like metallics, glass or tiles with soft faux fur rugs or knitted throws is a quick way to create intrigue in your bedroom.
Give your soft furnishings like cushions and curtains as much thought as you do your sheets to create a look that is consistent throughout. If you are in doubt, start with plain colors and then gradually introduce new patterns on top. Match velvets with mirrors and tiles with faux fur for the ultimate luxurious feel.
