Now that 2013 is here, it’s also time to give your bedroom a fresh face. This is a great way to make the space more comfortable and inviting and, at the same time, for you to welcome the new year with a stylish bang. So, if you’re ready, here are some of the bedroom trends worth stealing for your sleeping nest.
Wallpaper makes a come back
With paint manufacturers continuously improving their products’ color palettes, the use of wallpaper to accentuate walls has somewhat declined in the past years. However, home decorators note that wallpaper is making a strong and dramatic comeback. And this time around, it’s not just about mute tones or small prints. It’s all about vibrant hues and large-scale patterns. Hence, for a splash of color in your bedroom, use wallpaper to cover all four walls to give the room an entirely new look or just the wall behind your bed for a subtler change. Pick a wallpaper with large metallic paint design for a little bit of sheen and loads of drama.
Don’t be color shy
If you want something more daring, decorate your bedroom with bright tribal-inspired tones. Mixes of fiery pink, loud tangerine, peacock blue and sandy brown make for a great color combination. Though these hues are bold, they won’t overwhelm your bedroom as long as you use them in right doses. For instance, you can use these tones on your bedroom fabrics and accessories for a bit of quirkiness and whimsy.
Never underestimate the power of vintage articles because they won’t go away any time soon. So to add a touch of nostalgia in your bedroom decor, try using vintage finds along with modern pieces to uniquely accentuate your sleeping nest. For instance, two vintage side tables are great additions that will lend a one-of-a-kind flavor to a chic bedroom decor.
Make your bedroom a home within a home by turning it into a hotel-like suite. That is, make it an all-in-one space where you can accomplish daily tasks without the need to leave the confines of your bedroom. You can carve out a space in one corner of the room, which can function as a work area and a breakfast nook.
Accentuate in gold
Emerald green might be the color of the year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t settle with gold as the accent color of your bedroom. Yes, the shiny hue is coming back and you can use this tone for your bedroom accessories, such as your night lamps, to add a touch of glimmer into the space.
Remember, your bedroom should be an original expression of your personality. Whether you follow these trends or not, the goal is to make your bedroom a space you walk into and feel instantly calm and relaxed.
