Your bedroom is your sanctuary, your haven…where you want to be yourself without worrying about how others will judge you! We think it’s a great place to experiment with different creative ways of decoration. You can choose a look that will reflect your taste, personality or dreams 🙂
Here are some great trends that are garnering popularity this year:
Floral wall decal or sticker is a great way to instantly get a fresh, lovely look. Especially, a large piece of art looks elegant where everything else is designed in a simple way. More ideas here: http://tinyurl.com/musg86s
Combination of shades of gray, white and black always look classic. Take a look at this room …an indoor plant or an ornate chandelier can just add that luxurious but homely touch to this sophisticated bedroom!
If you love the rooms in luxury hotels, you can get that look as shown below. Works best if your bedroom is large. Note the kind of furnishing and lighting used, to replicate the look. Soft lights, huge beds, extravagant headboards, large windows will enhance the feel.
Ethnic prints specially Moroccan has been offering universal appeal for some time. These unique designs are easy to incorporate in curtains, rugs, cushions, bedspreads or any upholstery covering. See how this room combines the “flavors” of Africa with a brick finish wall.
Green and yellow shades when used in combination with white or black, can create interesting looks. While mild shades of green can exude a tranquil feel, yellow has the power to cheer you up in a second. If you love bright or neon shades, just remember to use them in small doses for the right effect.
Using natural materials like wood, metal, stone or brick is very much in this year. Like in this room ,thick planks of wood act as wall decor behind the bed, The irregularly shaped rug lends an eccentric look!
Tartan is a pattern which is excellent for a rough, rustic yet comfortable bedroom. With an old world charm, it’s easy to use for pillows, bed covers, curtains or other furnishing. Coupled with a wooden wall, it looks gorgeous!
Blue never goes out of fashion and is a safe bet too. Soft pastel blue, navy blue, bright blue and even electric shades look stylish and work together beautifully.
Finally, never underestimate the power of white…very few things are as magically peaceful as an all white bedroom. An old fashioned four poster will make it look all the more quaint!
Most importantly, no matter what the trend is, a decor idea that reflects what you are and makes you long for your “nest” is all you need to be happy 🙂
