As the nights draw in, temperatures drop, and we spend more evenings in our homes, here are our predictions for the interior design trends for bedrooms in late 2014 and early 2015.
Keeping Things Cosy
Fringed throws in rich tartan prints, chunky knit pillow cases in burnt orange and textured woods are just a few examples of the ‘cosy’ trend that will continue well into 2015. The dominating bedroom trend this season is all about turning your back on minimal and focusing on details that will bring a warmth and sense of comfort into your home. Think Autumnal America: open fireplaces, pumpkin spice and ‘the fall’. This trend will be focused around accessories – pillows, bedding and lighting, just simple details that will keep your bedroom warm over the winter.

Pantone has already claimed “Dazzling Blue” to be one of its colours of 2014, and as we move into autumn it is still one of the most popular colours of the year amongst the trend setters.

As winter draws in, indigo will become the colour of the season – a deep, rich shade that packs a punch in moderation.
This playful style is designed to make your bedroom look like a Parisian boudoir. Touches of glamour include materials like silk and organza, gold leaf details, and feminine pastels such as rose pink and lilac. Loose fabrics, netting and handwritten slogans (“Paris J’taime…”) will lead to a bedroom that oozes feminine glamour, and will transport you to the bohemian streets of Montmartre.
If you want to make a huge change to your bedroom this season without splashing too much cash, a painted ceiling is certainly the way to go. There are lots of directions to go in with a painted ceiling – a few shades darker will fit in with the cosy trend, a few shades lighter will give a small bedroom an airy feel, whereas a – going daring, a few shades darker for a cosier feel, a few shades lighter for an airy feel, or a different
Metal and Wood
Copper has been a huge trend for the last year, and it doesn’t show any sign of leaving. The copper trend this autumn/winter will be mixing its brassy tones with darker shades of wood. Look for accessories and stand alone furniture that mixes the warm orange tones of copper with dark mahogany.
