Floral blooms remain on-trend this year, although the large singe blooms we saw on wall art and fabrics is on the decline, with small repeat pattern floral designs stepping in to take their place. Modern colour combinations, along with modern interpretations on a floral theme sit next to classical styles, think Laura Ashley, to bring a fresh, crisp look to this year’s bedrooms.
Designers have also included the mix and match approach, with floral patterns being used in conjunction with spots and stripes. The colour palettes are vibrant without being gaudy – rosy pinks, creams and duck egg blues with black add a modern and contemporary look which isn’t staid or boring!
In your bedroom fresh white bed linen with a patterned duvet cover is an instant pick-me-up to a tired looking bedroom. Furthermore as these are the basics for many of our bedrooms the look is easy to achieve even if you have a restricted budget. Don’t forget that you’ll also need to up date your other soft furnishings if you want this spring-time look in your bedroom which packs a delicate punch and brings you a whole new look. Simply changing your duvet sets is a start but not the whole kit and caboodle.
Try and find spring blooms which are out of the ordinary and team them with new colours to excite your bedroom, making it stand out from the crowd. Look for a variety of different textures so that your bedroom isn’t flat and boring.
If you don’t want floral walls or bedding then a large rug with a floral print will bring a new dimension to your room. Try to avoid the typical bedroom scene of having a rug either side of the bed – this is so yesterday! – today large rugs are placed off centre in a room or placed under the bottom third of a bed.
Change your window dressing as well to alter the dynamics of your bedroom. Again, you don’t have to spend a fortune as cheap curtains with a spring bloom theme will do the trick very nicely. If you’ve always had short curtains which finish at your window sill go for full length – eyelet curtains will provide an instant up-date to your bedroom.
Half the trick is trying a new approach to the way you decorate and style a room. Experiment, have fun and you’ll be able to put a spring into your step and your bedroom!
