We’re now officially into the Spring (someone needs to tell the weather), and so many of you may be thinking about updating your home and getting it ready for the new season. As the main family space, you may be tempted to start with your living room, but this Spring, it’s time to focus on yourself and revamp your bedroom.
After all, as a hardworking parent, you deserve a space where you can unwind. Use these on-trend ideas to refresh your bedroom and create a relaxing retreat for 2018.
MINDFULNESS AND CALM
Last year, you may have been swept up in the trends of Hygge and Lagom, Scandinavian concepts of cosiness, calmness and happiness in the home. These are ideas that are still big this year. All about re-energising and relaxing, they’re perfect for the bedroom.
Make your bedroom a more mindful place by choosing pastel shades, cosy fabrics like faux fur and oversized knits, rugs to warm up laminate floors, and warm lights and candles for ambience.
All things nature and eco-friendly are must-haves for the bedroom in 2018. It’s the best excuse to turn your bedroom into a tranquil woodland, where you can unwind and escape.
To embrace this trend, think carefully about materials. Use reclaimed wood for shelving, decorate with plants (nature’s best accessories), opt for shades of pale olive green and dreamy blush pinks, and increase natural light by choosing curtains in pale fabrics.
For the last couple of years, minimalism has been everywhere. This concept of living with less became a lifestyle, taking over wardrobes and interiors. However, this year, it’s time for maximalism.
A maximalist interior is all about glamour, a new take on boutique hotel chic. To achieve this look, choose deep luxurious colours, add metallic shades, experiment with patterns and prints, and incorporate lots of luxury textures, like velvet and suede.
The Japanese concept of Wabi-Sabi is all about simplicity and being comfortable. It’s a chance to celebrate the imperfections of life through your interior. With such a relaxed approach, it’s ideal for the bedroom.
Wabi-Sabi calls for the imperfect: a half-unmade bed scattered with cushions and untidy throws, bare unpainted plastered walls, raw natural materials, minimalist surfaces, and varying shades of whites and greys.
As the room where you finally get to chill out after a long day, you want your bedroom to be restful and inviting. Choose one of these big 2018 trends to create a space that’s calming, tranquil, comfortable and chic.
