In this blog we’ll take a look at the interior design trends for 2019 that we can expect to influence our bedroom looks. We’ve scoured this month’s interiors magazines and websites to find the latest looks that work well in bedrooms – where you want to be sure that you’ve created a relaxing, sleep-friendly space.
Elle Dec – The New Dark Age
This look takes a Scandinavian contemporary look and updates it with a palette of deep, rich colours: burnt orange, damson and mustard. The look incorporates natural materials – solid wood floors, walls in concrete and stone and dark wooden furniture in walnut or black painted timber. This blend of dark colours and jewel bright accent colours results in a warm yet modern look – perfect for a cosy bedroom.
Take a look at our beds in solid walnut (a rich, chocolate brown colour timber with a vibrant grain) or black stained oak to best suit this look. The Black Orchid 4 poster bed is a stunning bed for a master bedroom. The black stain doesn’t disguise the variation of the grain, so you retain the warmth and beauty of natural oak, but with a contemporary colour that will look good against any wall paint.
Our new Kyoto daybed suits this look perfectly – shown above in solid walnut with an inky black futon and black cushions. This is a stylish way to add a comfy daybed, extra occasional bed and flexible seating option to your room (all in one!). Add a cosy throw in burgundy or chocolate to complete the look.
Moody, atmospheric and elegant – a dark colour scheme can be energised by a flash of colour. Deep mustard yellow, emerald green or garnet red accessories will add drama. Take a look at our Crimson Blossom duvet set for inspiration.
Decor Aid – Curved Furnishings
“We’ve seen curved lines take hold on tabletops and even rugs as of late, but their return to sofas and seating make it one of the most intriguing and even covetable 2019 interior design trends to consider bringing into your home – even if it’s in the form of a simple side chair or utility bench.” We love some well placed curves! That’s why we introduced both the Camden and Pimlico beds in 2018 – elegant beds, with soft, curved edges.
Add some curvy accessories to the scheme to complete the look. The Gabbia or Shoreditch chairs are stunning occasional chairs perfect for the bedroom. The Shoreditch has a wooden frame with curved arms and tapered legs. The Gabbia has a curved lightweight metal structure which encircles the wooden seat, a bold, modern addition to the Ethnicraft collection. The Ethnicraft Osso stool and Hall curved desk would also suit schemes using the Camden and Pimlico beds as the soft, curved lines of these designs mirrors those of the beds.
Living etc – Green on Green
This look incorporates a range of green tones – all in neutral, muted hues that will work well with a range of accent colours.
Decor Aid also love green, they describe ‘nightwatch green’ as the colour of the 2019 – “this moodier alternative to hunter and bottle green makes for a nice alternative to today’s on-trend matte black and looks great with high-shine finishes and elements” – sounds good to me! Nightwatch green is a very dark emerald green shade, similar to the Rainy Day bedding range.
We have a range of bedding and throws in various shades of green. From the soft dusty Jade green of our velvet quilted throw to the deep army green of the geometric patterned bedspread – we are sure to have a shade to suit your scheme!
Elle Dec – Silver Lining
This look is a favourite at Natural Bed Company – the mix of grey paints and fabrics with oak or walnut furniture and black accessories. This article covers a beautiful Norway apartment, the home of an interior architect – so no wonder it’s stunning! ” Soft silvery shades of grey create a serene palette that is the epitome of modern Scandinavian style”
We’ve been inspired by this look and are confident that this restful, elegant and contemporary look will continue to impress and inspire – well into 2019. The deep grey walls of the bedroom contrast with the white and dove grey bedding. Linen bedding and a textured white bedspread add interest and the feel of restrained luxury.
We have a wide range of furniture and bedding to suit this look. Our upholstered beds are available with grey fabric headboards – we use this colour a lot as there is always a shade of grey to suit each timber. The Skye, Arran, Iona, Highland and Shetland beds all look great with a grey headboard – from the palest silver Tailor Wolf to dark, rich Amatheon Ebony.
If you are looking for bedding just select the shade and we’ll have an option. Pale grey? Try our silver grey linen bedding or brushed cotton bedding. Warm grey? Try our dove grey linen or Donna Wilson Log Cabin bedding. We have cool greys too – linen bedding in platinum and chambray cotton bedding in grey. If you are looking for a much darker shade try our platinum 1000 thread count bedding or linen bedding in slate grey.
We also have bedspreads, cushions and throws in a range of greys. My favourite? The Stockholm range of bedspreads and cushions, available in a range of colours including silver grey, mid grey and slate grey. Add a soft cotton blanket to complete the look – the star pattern throw is soft, modern and perfect for the holidays.
Living Etc – #Jet Black
Living etc takes this look even further – creating a cosy, moody interior made up of black, charcoal with occasional high-lights of silvery grey. Natural wood is stained black or given a charred effect – it is used to cover walls and to make bold, simple furniture. If all black seems a little extreme – paint an accent wall or your ceiling black, and add a black or charcoal bedspread or cushions. Then lighten the mood with a paler wood floor and matching furniture.
The Monolit collection from Ethnicraft is perfect for this look. The range includes bedside tables, slim console tables (which can also be used as an occasional desk or dressing table), cupboards and low media units. The Monolit range is made up of solid oak storage units within a metal frame in black or white. The oak parts are also available stained black with a black metal frame, and so are perfect for this look! The Blackbird range – which includes a desk and bedside table – is another good choice. These units combine natural oak, black stained oak and black metal legs – they are elegant and modern. If you would like to use this idea and tailor one of our beds to suit – we suggest the Kulu bed with an oak base and black stained oak headboard, alternatively a Highland 4 poster in black stained timber with an upholstered headboard in a beige or taupe shade would also look great.
Elle Dec – Where the Light Dances – A Soft, Neutral and Natural look.
The mood board for this look incorporates stone and marble, sheepskin and timbers from palest maple to rich, warm oak. The colour palette is a calm and soothing collection of stone, beige and off white tones – inspired by natural materials. This look is possibly the easiest to incorporate in your bedroom at home, this neutral colour palette is also a classic that is unlikely to date.
Any of our beds can be specified to suit this look as they can all be ordered in a range of pale timbers – from pine, to blonde hardwoods such as maple and ash, to the warmer tones of oak and cherry. If you are looking for bedding or accessories to suit we’ve got that covered too. We have linen bedding in white or limestone, along with organic cotton bedding in a pale brown marl or rich, creamy colour. Add texture with a quilted bedspread, waffle textured duvet set or stonewash cotton duvet with ruffle detail. So many choices!
Complete the scheme with a cosy rug, order one as large as you can afford so that (at least half) your bed can sit on top of it (it will give a luxury look and ensure it doesn’t look like a bath mat for your bed!) Choose a slightly deeper tone, deeply textured or a patterned style of rug – a plain cream rug in a flat weave is very unforgiving of the occasional mark or stain.
Decor Aid – Boho Inspired
Decor Aid say they have found this look “on every list and in every showroom highlighting 2019 interior design trends”. This look allows for maximum self expression and, as it’s so eclectic, it allows you to incorporate furniture and loved accessories from quite disparate looks. However in order to keep this look more style guru, than junk shop, we recommend keeping to a simple palette of complementary colours.
A monochrome Boho look has been popular in 2018 and we image it will continue well into 2019. Add interest to this palette with texture, pattern and embroidery – this is easily done with throws, bedding and cushions. If you want to add a touch of colour choose an accent shade perfect for this retro style – mustard, burnt orange or teal – ideal for an accent wall colour or textiles. Add house plants, candles and wall hangings to bring the look together.
