If you’ve recently moved or you’re embarking on an interior makeover, you may be looking for inspiration to create a luxurious, sumptuous sanctuary to retreat to at the end of a busy day. The bedroom is one of the most important spaces in the home. You’ll probably spend more time in this room than any other, so it’s critical to get the design right. If you have grand plans for your boudoir, here are some trends you may wish to try in your dream home.
If you’ve ever stayed in the heart of Paris or Venice, you may be familiar with this trend. Think boutique hotel vibes with an opulent, expensive feel. Oversized beds are a feature of vintage romance and you can choose from statement rococo bed heads or even a four poster if you’re keen to go all-out. If you’re buying a new bed, focus on quality and comfort when looking at mattresses and then turn your attention to dressing the bed to create a stunning focal point. It’s worth reading reviews and looking at details about mattresses online before you buy. Once your bed has been installed, you can add cushions, throws and plumped-up pillows to add coziness. Opt for silk covers and velvet cushions and curtains in shades of blush pink and oyster for an extravagant but soft look. When you’re choosing furniture, look for vintage style chests and don’t be afraid to use your creative skills to upcycle pieces you already have if you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for. Finish the room off with a couple of high-pile rugs and a chandelier.
Minimalistic styling has been popular for many years now, and if you’re looking for an easy, hassle-free way of creating a chic bedroom, this could be the trend for you. This look is all about the beauty of simplicity, so it’s perfect for those who despise clutter. Keep things simple when dressing the room. Opt for neutral shades for the walls, keep the floors clear and invest in hidden storage, rather than covering the walls in mounted units. If you want to add color, do this using accessories such as bedside lamps and cushions. Monochrome works well, but if you are keen to add accents, you could team white walls with duck egg blue, gray or rose gold. This trend is ideally suited to modern villas, beach houses and loft-style apartments.
The natural look
If you’re a fan of the concept of bringing the outside in, you’ll love this bedroom trend. Long associated with garden rooms and open-plan kitchens, this is a look that can be embraced all over the home. Focus on natural materials, such as wood and bamboo, and create a clean, airy space, which bounces natural light around and makes you feel like you’re in the open air even when you’re snuggled up looking at the stars through a skylight. To channel this trend, opt for a stripped wooden floor and a chunky, oversized bed frame that steals the show as soon as you walk through the door. If you’re looking to add a quirky touch, you could consider crafting a bed head from stable doors, reclaimed beams or driftwood, for example. Use materials such as cotton and linen for curtains and bedding, and scatter plants around the room. You can add small pots to shelving units or bedside tables or use large plants like yuccas to fill corners of the room.
If you’re looking for inspiration for a dreamy bedroom, hopefully, these luxe trends have given you food for thought.
