Warm and muted hues ideal for a rest­ful bed­room

Pilbara News - - Property - Cy Clay­ton

Spring is here and there is noth­ing like a decor update to cel­e­brate the new sea­son.

“So many peo­ple ne­glect the look and feel of their bed­rooms de­spite it be­ing the place we spend most of our time,” Jill O’Donoghue, in­te­rior stylist at The Fur­ni­ture Gallery, says.

“Your bed­room should be a com­bi­na­tion of cur­rent trends and time­less pieces that fit into your own per­sonal style.”

Adairs’ Denise Leki says there are two key colour di­rec­tions for 2016-17.

“Firstly there is lush botan­i­cal greens and bright in­tense blues that con­nect with the sea and sky,” she says, while at the other end of the spec­trum are softer tones in­clud­ing muted pinks, soft corals and greys.

Ge­orgie Leckey, owner and de­signer at Heatherly De­sign, says linen is still a key trend in the bed­room, and is per­fect for cre­at­ing a re­laxed look.

Linen House cre­ative di­rec­tor Michele Duncan agrees.

“We see nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als and tex­tures such as linen and che­nille mak­ing a big come­back,” she says. “These or­ganic fi­bres are light and breath­able in the warmer months and make for bet­ter sleep.”

Scandi-style in­te­ri­ors are still go­ing strong, ac­cord­ing to Ms O’Donoghue. Think a neu­tral palette of shades of grey and white, and warm tim­ber ac­cents.

“This is a pop­u­lar trend for the bed­room as it uses calm, sooth­ing colours and min­i­mal­is­tic fur­ni­ture pieces re­sult­ing in a re­lax­ing, wel­com­ing space,” she says.

When it comes to colour, Ms Duncan says clas­sic spring hues are still in de­mand with de­sign­ers. “Pas­tel pinks and yel­lows are still dom­i­nat­ing for this spring/sum­mer sea­son as they give bed­rooms a sense of fresh­ness and calm,” she says.

Other colour trends, ac­cord­ing to Ms Leckey, in­clude blue-greys, soft mul­berry pinks, light warm greys and smoky char­coals.

“We are see­ing more earthy colours ap­pear­ing in new tex­tile col­lec­tions,” she says. “And those colours have fil­tered down into some gor­geous vel­vet cush­ions in mus­tard, moss green and beige.”
