Considering we spend about one-third of our lives asleep, it’s surprising how little time we spend making sure that our bedrooms are up to date. But now Summer is drawing to a close, we can take our attention off our outdoor living areas and instead concentrate on making our master bedrooms feel like somewhere where we can really rest and relax in style!
Too often, our bedrooms are just somewhere to sleep and store clothes. But some of these modern bedroom designs instantly show that our sleeping spaces can benefit from the addition of minimalist colour palettes, striking patterns and textures and even a super king size mattress to ramp up the comfort factor.
One thing that all modern master bedrooms seem to have in common is the way that they keep the colour palette relatively restrained whilst adding bursts of colour through anything from an art print to an accent wall.
And seeing as grey has been named the colour of the decade, what better way to add some life to this modern and neutral tone than by implementing an on-trend teal accent wall or even introducing a bold yellow upcycled chair to add some sunshine?
Hygge is another trend that is showing no signs of going away, and it aims to add plenty of comfort in terms of natural light and cosy fabrics whilst maintaining a modern simplicity. I’ve currently got the book on my Amazon wish list (hint, hint husband!) as I think I’d really like to try and embrace Hygge now the nights are drawing in.
So we can all add a little ‘Hygge’ into our master bedrooms we need to make sure that there are plenty of overstuffed pillows and cosy soft furnishings around – definitely a habitat I could get used to. Oversized furniture can really add to the comfort factor and a great idea is a super king size mattress from Bedstar. We’ve just ordered a super king size bed to ensure that our bed becomes a place where we can relax and unwind rather than just being somewhere to fall asleep.
There’s plenty of fun to be had when adding some interesting aesthetic touches to your master bedroom too. Whether it’s one of those trendy modern pieces of wall art that feature stylish typography, or even adding some geometric patterned cushions to your bed, it can all add up to a very stylish overall effect. I’m considering a nice white shelf above the bed with a few prints on along with some of our favourite family photos.
Other interesting modernist trends include replacing chintzy bedside lamps with stylish exposed filament bulbs that can be softly dimmed. And there’s also been the interesting sight of some unusual plants making an appearance in our bedrooms for their alleged sleep boosting properties which shows that it’s not just super king size mattresses that can help us get some rest.
What have you got in your bedroom that’s really on trend at the moment? I’d love some bedside table inspiration.
