CHECK OUT THESE BEDROOM DESIGN TRENDS FOR 2015
FROM NATURAL TIMBERS TO BOLD COLOURS...
The new year is the perfect time to rethink your domestic decor and where better to start than your bedroom? There are plenty of interesting and exciting interior design trends to watch out for in 2015 and by staying ahead of the curve, you can create the best possible boudoir. Here are some style ideas that are likely to dominate over the coming 12 months.
MINIMALISM AND MODESTY
There’s a place for minimalism and modesty, but your bedroom’s not it - certainly not in 2015 anyway. This year is all about indulgence and lavish design touches, meaning you have the perfect excuse to really go to town when you’re choosing your furniture and accessories. Don’t be afraid to invest in a standout bed with a real wow factor. Perhaps a four poster would make the ideal addition to your room, or maybe an ornate French-style creation would be better. There’s certainly no shortage of options. Don’t forget to top your bed with a luxury mattress too. As well as looking the part, these items will help you to get a great night’s sleep.
Other fabulous furniture options include an elegant chaise longue and a decadent dresser complete with multi-panel mirror. By purchasing products like these for your bedroom, you can make the ultimate style statement.
DEEP BLUES, VIBRANT GREENS AND BRIGHT ORANGE
Bold colours are also big news this year. Deep blues, vibrant greens and bright oranges are all bang-on trend. If you don’t want to put these striking colours on your walls, you can opt for a neutral paint or wallpaper and then accessorise your space with vivid window dressings, bedding, cushions, rugs and artwork.
Try offsetting vibrant hues with darker tones too. For example, oranges and pinks can look fantastic next to charcoal grey.
STRIPPED FLOORS AND PLANKED WALLS
Wood is nothing new in the world of interior design, but designers are bringing it back with a vengeance this season. It’s appearing in everything from stripped floors to planked walls. This means now could be the time to rip up any tired old carpets in favour of this natural look. Bear in mind though, soft rugs are a must if you go for timber flooring.
LESS IS MORE
OVERCROWDING IS A BIG-NO
Although luxury is a major theme in 2015, don’t be tempted to bust your budget cramming too many items into your bedroom. Less is most definitely more in the world of interior design right now. Select a small number of top-quality pieces and let them do the talking. Overcrowding is a big no-no. As well as being easy to create, minimalist rooms can have a soothing, relaxing effect that’s spot-on in this part of the home.
These are just some of the trends to look out for when you’re revamping your bedroom this year. However, bear in mind that there are no hard and fast rules. After all, it’s your space and you should feel free to do whatever you like with it.
