Whether you have a pied-à-terre in the city, a small one bedroom, a cottage or a terraced house, there are times when bringing a lift to your bedroom with today’s trends are essential. You can find designs to suit every pocket. Here are six top trends for this year.
The Open Plan
We have style, we have taste and we are ever so versatile. Back in the retro days of the 50s, 60s and 70s when the open plan device was between the living-room and the kitchen, you now can take it a step further.
Your personal sanctuary has taken another dimension. The future of the open plan has reached the bedroom: no longer are you looking to contain the beauty of the bathroom details to the four walls. Now from the comfort of your bed, you can emphasise and admire the luxury of your en suite bathroom with dramatic lighting, sliding doors or glass block walls.
With an open plan creating different spaces while also retaining the element of expansiveness is derived from elements such as sliding doors plus including spot lights from Lampcommerce within the bathroom to allow for the stunning basins and freestanding baths to be exposed dramatically as the tone of the light can be changed depending on the time of day.
The Glamourous Metallic Look
This season add elements of copper burnished metals plus rose coppers for a warmth that is both exquisite and dazzling. The metallic touch can be included in details around the bedroom from your lighting to the decors. They are subtle interior products that will enliven your existing style or compliment it.
If the finances need to be kept in check, you can pick and choose the main focal point in metal such as the small hanging light over your make-up vanity or the mirror. The same applies to your bedside lamps and some decorative bowls that would suit the Boutiko girl look.
Bringing Botany Indoors
As spring is well and truly on our doorsteps, this is a great opportunity to carry the theme indoors. With a dark colour to one wall, a lighter tone to a door the leafy designs will complement the setting using some insect prints against the graphic colours.
There are new fabrics and papers that would crown the dark and light tones on walls. With an added house plant or two, the floral hangings, cushions, blinds and sofas will add a lightness to the room. A fresh spring look will embolden the spirit.
The Urban Mode
Keeping the rooms modern and monochromatic are maintaining their design reign: the industrial style with metal legs on tables, beds and chairs continue its appeal with exposed filament light-bulbs in an Edison assemblage throughout the room.
Combining different retro styles from various collections will add an original touch: use midnight tones, misty hues and colourful blues to add the industrialised feel to your special corners within the room. Having a strong colour beside lighter tonalities will assemble the space together. Bring out one special feature through a chandelier or chair that will contribute to the wow factor.
Mixed Decorative Themes
If you are inspired by the colours from your desert travels this is your chance to be creative. Expand on the arid tones that display a palette of wealthy range of ochre from yellow, burnt orange, earth shades, sepia, sienna and rugged clay.
To keep a hold of your budget, there are colours and fabrics to be found in the George collection using the Arizona desert as a backdrop. Try out the distinctive tribal prints to splash around a bedroom in small details or on one wall. Include an exotic plant as a statement in your room.
Keep It Simple
For those who want elegance and simplicity, the black and white effect is just as effective. Use variations of the tones with off-whites and add some plucky patterns to engage the dramatic presence in the bedroom.
Whatever style you choose, try and eliminate the clutter which will hamper the hard work that you have invested in and remember this is your boudoir!
