White has evolved into a design classic in recent years. Versatile, sleek and great for small spaces, it can be incorporated into our homes in so many ways.
It’s a colour that doesn’t have to mean minimalism. To prevent your bedroom from feeling cold and clinical, incorporating accent colours, or mixing fabrics and textures, will add softness and warmth to a white bedroom. With that in mind, we’ve picked out our three favourite trends that fit perfectly with white fitted wardrobes.
Last year copper was seen everywhere, from mirrors to light fittings and even bedside tables. But this year more rustic looking, unpolished metals are set to become more popular. Take your pick between gold, brass, and bronze. Or add depth to your bedroom by combining different tones. Don’t be afraid to experiment with metallics for your own unique take on the trend.
Nature is a huge influence this year. You only have to look at Greenery, Pantone’s colour of the year; a refreshing burst of green for inspiration. For a subtle alternative, choose jade or aqua green. Bring the outside in with a splash of colour on a feature wall or introduce printed accessories and plants. A selection of tropically printed cushions and leafy plants are a simple way to incorporate nature into the bedroom.
A practical and homely trend for 2018 is texture. Soft furnishings in contrasting fabrics can add depth and warmth to a white bedroom. Comfort has overtaken minimalism this year, so create a cosy space by mixing chunky wools with faux fur and plush velvets. For a calming feel to help you relax, keep the colour palette neutral - complement white with pale greys, beiges and blush pink.
Whilst trends come and go, the great thing about incorporating new accessories or soft furnishings is that these can be updated inexpensively with very little hassle. This means that your choice of bedroom storage can last a lifetime.
