Bright & Bold monochromatic
Gone are the days of subtle shades grey & white and the trend for statement-making colors is in the market.
Designers are washing the room in hues of bold color palettes like cobalt blue, brick red, and forest green. This trend follows an alpha hue throughout the bedroom, even on the accessories such as your furnishing, nightstand, or even light fixtures. The goal is to blend everything together in one color, still giving importance to every object by creating a variation in their shades.
The thought of a monochromatic color palette might seem to you as an over-designed space. But once you see the completed design, monochromatic color schemes can look eye-catchy and elegant. If you are looking for a low-key monochromatic color scheme, try to define your style on one particular type of object.
Furnishing is a good way to start, keep the shade of all your furnishing in the closed shades possible. This will make the room feel more tied and present a uniform feel.
It is always a good idea to bring some greenery into your bedroom. Decor and Artifacts are good at how they can turn the look of the whole house.

Accessorize your nightstands with small succulent pots, then you won’t have to worry about watering them daily. Geometric wall planters can be used to create an accent wall in the bedroom, gives the space a trendy look. Get your simplistic room elegance with large monstera or palm leaf decor.
This trend of using a single or couple of large leaves for decor has gained much popularity in the last year.
Mixing the old and new
There has always been a fight over classic vs modern design, in the coming year we will be seeing a mix-match of both the periods.
Your bedroom doesn’t have to be a picture of exclusive aesthetics, showcasing items that have sentimental value is what makes a space unique. Bedrooms should be the most comforting and intimate space of the house, thus adding nostalgia is great advice.
Bring this into your bedroom by incorporating new furnishings and modern design rug with your favorite items that you may have collected in the past years. Accessories with souvenirs from holidays, artwork by your loved one, or a piece of old designer furniture to create a sense of nostalgia.
Blending inherited pieces with modern design and creating a balance in the room can be a bit of a challenge in itself.
Bedrooms are typically an escape from the outside world and unlike a hotel room, this space should be a reflection of your taste and design style.
Wishing for a room that’s luxurious and multi-functional like a hotel room, but still feels intimate is not that difficult. The first step is to find out the activities you’ll be doing there, aside from sleeping. Create different zones for sleeping, working, relaxing, and grooming.
Hotel rooms feel comfortable because of the insulated surfaces, install a good carpet pad or add a large upholstered headboard. These things will help bring warmth to the space. To make the room more functional, focus on the lighting layout of the room. Install cabinet lights for your wardrobe and dressing area, two-way switches for ceiling fans, and general lighting.
Getting ample natural light in the room is important, opt for a two-layer drapery system when selecting your shades. The furnishing of your room plays a major part in developing the ambiance of the space. Use a cotton-linen fabric sheer curtain and a satin or velvet fabric blackout curtain.
The walls of the room can be dressed up with a nice fabric finish wallpaper or have a solid earthy tone paint shade.
A decorative piece or an artwork can really take the space to a whole another level. Every room deserves to have a special statement piece, that becomes the room’s focal point and steals the show.
To have the jaw-drop effect on your guest, incorporate unusual shapes and textures even in your fixed furniture. Make the statement with a stylish eye-catchy chandelier in the center of the room. Edgy light fixtures not only make solid impacts on the guests but also makes the room more inviting and luxurious. Take a step back and see if the picture that is forming in front of you is what you wanted. Sometimes in the effort of trying to make things more impactful, we end up creating chaos.
You can also involve antique furniture pieces to initiate the wow factor. There are just so many things in the bedroom that have the capability to be functional and statement worthy.
You just need to add drama, consider an oversized mirror with interesting edge detail. Or a vibrant area rug in a minimal design bedroom will be just enough to make the space look eclectic.
