Forget 50 shades of grey – blue is the new bedroom hue for 2020

Is your bedroom a little behind with the times?

Perhaps it resembles something out of a 70s sitcom with orange and brown flower power curtains and fringed lampshades? Or maybe you still have your Paddington Bear bedspread?

You could pass this off as ‘retro’ – a bygone boudoir perhaps – or bring it back to the 21st century.

We spend a lot of time in our bedrooms, whether it’s dressing, dozing, snacking, working, binge-watching boxsets from the comfort of our sheets or something a little saucier.

It’s worth investing a little time and effort into creating the perfect space where you can unplug from the world and recharge your batteries.

So what’s on-trend in the bedroom for 2020?

Interior designers say this season will bring us down to earth with lots of inspiration taken from the natural world. Think earthy tones, wooden bed frames, floral or animal print wallpaper and wall hangings plus plenty of plants or dried flowers.

The luxe factor will be ramped up turning bedchambers into sensual retreats with all the comforts and luxury of a five-star hotel featuring mirrored wardrobes and drawers, oversized headboards, sensory lighting and fine quality bedlinens.

While 2019 was dominated by 50 shades of grey, blue is the hue for 2020. Other popular shades will include mint green, opulent ochre, fuscia fusions and blush pinks.

Monochrome is also having a moment – punctuated with bright pops of colour – as well as bold, abstract patterns.

Create a bold statement with a vibrant fabric bed in ochre or deep blue and a matching chair or opt for a copper bedframe – so in vogue right now.

Fabric beds are more glamorous than ever with crushed velvet stealing the limelight. Art Deco style headboards are also hot for 2020.

Meanwhile, the trusty old bedside cabinet is being replaced with stylish tables and shelves in metal, glass and wood.

A current interior trend buzzword is texture – often seen in the lounge, this translates well in the bedroom with layers of tactile blankets, throws and cushions.

So if your bedroom has the yawn factor, for all the wrong reasons, pop down and see us where you’ll find all the inspiration you need to bring your boudoir up to date.
