Looking to reinvent your bedroom? The silly season is over, and it’s time to cosy in for a comfortable Autumn and Winter, which means plenty of time under the covers in the bedroom. With all those hours spent with tea, soup and your new favourite HBO show, surely you’ll want to make sure it looks amazing. Here are three new looks to inspire you.

1. YELLOW IS THE NEW BLACK

For the latest look in bedroom design, nothing says chic like pop colours. The perfect combination of “I’m fun” and “I don’t take myself too” seriously, teaming brights in the bedroom could be your new best friend. Yellow is a natural mood elevator so surrounding yourself with this “happy” colour is something that your brain (and significant other) will thank you for later!

Keep your bedroom simple with cool neutrals and rugged textures. These will make the colours pop. As it’s a simple set up, invest in wicker baskets, date wood as a highlight element and anything with a coarse grain or added texture to really give it that extra life.

Keep large furniture relatively simple and consistent. This bed frame, dresser and bedside table all work well as foundations for this design. When ready, team it with bright accessories like a pop cushion or if you are feeling even more daring, change the bed linen to be an all yellow masterpiece.

 

2. THE NEO MASCULINE

So he tells you that he’s not really into furniture or interiors – but he’s lying. Everybody wants to love where they live and he is no exception. For those of you who haven’t yet discovered the joy in making your pride your home, this could very well be the bedroom look you need. Taking inspiration from classic design elements and adding homey new touches, this will have him crawling into bed a few hours earlier just to relish the space!

With this bedroom look, keep all the large furniture simple and relatively fuss free. This will allow other elements like your cushions, homewares and bedroom accessories to really pop. Don’t be afraid to mix and match different wood texture as well as clash prints and textures.

It is important that the colour palette remains consistent. As you can see, the tones are all very masculine with dominant blacks, muted grey, date wood, chestnut brown and a rich forest green taking pride and place. Adding colours like pastels, or elaborate colourful prints would only steer this look in the wrong direction.

Once again, it’s important that all large furniture has a matching vibe. In this case, the bed, dresser and two bedside tables go perfectly together tying the room together. When all elements work together like this, it makes it a lot easier for you to play with other combinations of clashing prints and textures.

 

 3. SUMMER IS HERE TO STAY

Whether you love or hate the summer heat, there is nothing more relaxing than a beachside getaway. Take your favourite seaside resort and bring it home with this effortless bedroom look that will have you reminiscing of summer all through the coming seasons.

There are two things to bringing the perfect resort look indoors. You need lots of blue and plenty of wood. Preferably a rustic and weathered wood to give it a maritime feel, this rough texture will mean that you have to downplay other elements in the room. In previous looks we styled subtle bedroom furniture with bold accessories. This time it’s the other way around. Keep other accessories and home wares simple.

Like always, make sure you match all large furniture and for the perfect beach-house feel consider this bed, dresser and bedside table.
