The New Year is here! If you find your home feeling a bit drab after the holiday decorations come down, adding a bedroom makeover to your 2018 resolution list can help spruce it up.
Of course, with each new year come new trends and inspiration to help guide any new home projects you might take on. So, if you’re considering a bedroom refresh, here are a few trends that are sure to impress any house guests in the coming year:
Good news for those of us who love a little green in our lives: green is predicted to be one of the trendiest colors for your bedroom in 2018! But before you go out and splurge on gallons of paint or a new bedspread, considering a different way to incorporate this festive hue. A great way to sprinkle some green into your bedroom is through live greenery. We’re not talking your standard ficus tree in the corner. Group together lush options like vines, moss, and the ever-present fiddle leaf fig to create an almost-exotic feel in your own home.
Create Your Own Station
Phones, tablets, e-readers, smartwatches… the list of electronics that need to be charged every night seems to grow with each passing year. Tame those cables and strike the balance between form and function with an all-in-one docking station. PRO TIP: make sure your docking station is out of arm’s reach from the bed. Your alarm will be more effective, and you’ll get a better night’s sleep if you’re not able to scroll through social media for hours before falling asleep.
Wallpaper is Back
One trend garnering a mixed-reaction is the return of wallpaper. To keep your bedroom looking modern and up to date, avoid cliched floral motifs and opt for bold geographic patterns, metallic finishes or even a faux woodgrain. These modern takes on a decorating will help you to add a splash of dimension and a personal touch to any bedroom. Not ready to commit to a room of wallpaper? Try creating an accent wall behind your bed to quickly update the look of your bedroom.
Live the Suite Life
Master suites have expanded beyond the standard bedroom/bathroom/walk-in closet combination. Consider working a sitting area, writing desk, coffee bar or dry bar into that extra nook for an updated, luxurious addition to your retreat. Plus what could be better than waking up to a fresh cup of coffee, made right there in your room?
More is More
Minimalism has had its moment, and maximalism has begun to take over the bedroom décor scene. The trend is exactly what it sounds like — an eclectic mix of objets d’art, art, bookshelves and furniture, positioned to give a room plenty of personality while making it feel well lived-in. This is admittedly a tough trend to pull off, as you could walk the line between ‘Maximalist’ and ‘Cluttered’, but with a discerning eye and a little Pinterest research, it’s within reach!
Keeping an eye on trends is a great way to refresh your retreat and stave off the winter blues. But the most important part of your bedroom décor is making sure that your design is reflective of YOU. Your room should be your domain, to ensure that you are comfortable, relaxed, and ready for a good night’s sleep.
