Written by Jaymi Naciri Posted On Sunday, 05 February 2017 14:36

The bedroom. It's the nest we retreat to at the end of the day. The place we relax, and slumber, and regenerate our minds and body. So, if it's not stylish and serene, it needs to get there. Now.

Look to these bedroom trends for 2017 to get you the sumptuous bedroom space you deserve.

Patterned walls

Patterns are everywhere today in a variety of applications, but few make the impact of wallpaper. "While 2016 was the year to add bright pastel colors to the walls of your bedroom, the upcoming year welcome backs the designer wallpapers, to adorn the walls of your bedroom with a modish touch, said interior designer and cofounder of Meraki on Design Genie.

Bring in some needed color, add a graphic pattern for interest, or go all dreamy with something like this de Gournay plum blossom print. It'll definitely transport you to another place - even if only in your dreams.


Textured walls

You don't have to have a big, bold pattern on your walls to bring your room into 2017. Texture is all the talk this year. But pass that rustic wood by - it's soooo 2016. Instead, try some decorative molding painted in a dramatic hue. "The best way to kick traditional style up a notch? Paint your space a rich color like this dark gray," said Elle Decor. "In this case, the texture of the wall softens the solemn shade."

Upholstered beds

The trend that's been around for several years isn't going anywhere yet, although, for a modern look, go for a dramatic shape or size on your headboard. And, don't forget the embellishments. It's all about the tufting and covered buttons.


Mixing patterns

It's all about mixing and matching today, but doing so in a way that amps up the style. To get the balance right, heed this tip: "Odd numbers, especially the number three, just seem to make things work, whether you're combining colors or planting shrubs," said HGTV. "Three is the minimum number of patterns you should use, and the key to successful mixing is to vary the scale, from small to large, of the patterns."


Go tropical

You don't have to live on the coast to push a coastal look at home. This trend has been percolating for a few years, and now there are some great choices to incorporate into your bedroom that can help you to "embrace your adventurous side," said Textile company Kip & Co.


Cerused wood

Need to pick up a few pieces of bedroom furniture? Look for this hot new finish. "A ‘cerused' finish refers to the technique that brings out the unique grain of wood," said House Beautiful. "This trend which has been around in the high end market for some time has finally trickled down and seems universally accepted," Laura Michaels of Get a Room Design told them. "You'll see it on cabinets, but also in bigger pieces like tables, chairs, and storage furniture."
