With a new year started, trends for interior design are starting to change, bringing in exciting contemporary ways to make your home feel refreshed and up-to-date! As a special treat, our interior designer, Anna Jilon has offered some behind-the-scenes insights on the latest colour schemes, must-haves, and decorating trends for the bedroom this year.
Colour schemes for the bedroom typically change annually and, according to Anna, the popularity of grey and silver – accented by pearl whites – is on the rise this year. Using these three colours together creates a clean-cut look, with a hint of luxury! This scheme is also easy to decorate with because of its neutrality, making it the perfect mix to really last.
In the past few years, there has been a rise in the popularity of geometric shapes and patterns used in interior decorating. With this trend, wallpaper has been making a comeback, and Anna says that in 2019 the popularity of wallpaper in the bedroom will only continue to rise! The use of wallpaper for an accent wall behind your bed is the perfect way to add this popular design trend to your bedroom for 2019.
Interior Design Styles
Just as seasons come and go, so do interior design trends. This year, Anna predicts that there will be a major boost in the popularity of contemporary design style’s clean lines. Upholstered headboards, with hints of silver and grey tones, paired with crisp white linens will make this style come to life in your bedroom, making it up-to-date with the latest popular interior design trend.
The Must-Have Decor Item
Every year, there is at least one “must have” item that completes the whole ensemble of the bedroom. This year, Anna suggests that the sought-after item should be an accent bench. Whether it is a similar colour to your linens, or if you choose a bold colour to make it a statement piece, the accent bench is both a practical and chic item to add to your bedroom decor in 2019.
Interior Design Prediction
2019 is guaranteed to bring certain design trends into the limelight, but if Anna was to predict what the biggest trend is going to be, she would say be on the lookout for extended height tufted headboards. These headboards will be extremely popular, with soft silver tones reflecting the predominant colour for the year. So if you are looking to update your bedroom and you’re consulting with the interior design team for your new home, consider purchasing a new headboard!
Anna’s Advice on Updating Your Bedroom
If you are an established homeowner and are searching for a way to update your bedroom to give it that contemporary look, Anna suggests trying a new coat of paint. Taking this easy step will allow you to choose colours that coincide with the latest trends, making your room feel fresh and new. She also suggests updating your linens in order to change up the style of the room while adding crown moulding to make it feel more contemporary. Taking these small steps are simple ways that you can make your bedroom feel more up-to-date instantly.
