2015 Bedroom Design Ideas

Designing a bedroom can be a large feat, but having an overview of different design styles can make the job much easier and much more rewarding. From modern to shabby chic, we’ve outlined some of the top bedroom design styles for 2015 to help you create your bedroom oasis in the design style perfectly suited for you.

2015 Bedroom Design Ideas

White Bedroom Design

Shabby Chic Bedroom Design

Modern Bedroom Design

Modern bedroom design is a clean break from traditional styles, and it embraces a more organized and simple look. While modern design typically embraces symmetry and geometric shapes and patterns, it also generally employs fewer embellishments and simple features than other design styles.

Colors

Neutral colors, particularly in the natural materials used, are prominent, along with occasional pops of color. The best color palette to choose for your modern bedroom design is one that will compliment your furniture, bedding, and accent pieces without overwhelming them. If your furniture and bedding are in more neutral colors, like browns, grays, or whites, consider painting your walls a bold color, such as gold, orange, or green. If your furniture and bedding is bright and patterned, you’re better off choosing a neutral wall color, such as a light tan or a soft gray.

Furniture Style

The furniture in a modern bedroom design generally requires the pieces have separation from the floor. Thin, often metallic legs lift furniture pieces so that the flow of air is encouraged,  and breath and movement is invited into the room. Natural materials, such as wood, stone, and leather, are utilized to bring warmth into the simplistic style. Modern design also embraces more industrial materials, such as plastic and polished metal. Picture a bright orange plastic chair with shiny metal legs or a simple, polished metal nightstand.

Bedding

As the focal point of your modern bedroom design, your bedding should make a strong statement. If your walls and furniture are more subtle, consider choosing a bright teal and gray chevron comforter or a bold gray and yellow flower-patterned comforter. If the rest of your modern bedroom design is full of patterns already, select a solid red comforter and pair it with some striped red and white throw pillows. Maybe your accent pieces are full of flair and you need your bedding to bring the entire room together in a calming way. If that’s the case, try a solid gray quilt or a vertically-striped black and white comforter.

Accent Pieces

Following suit with modern color palettes and simplistic design, your bedroom accent pieces should be sleek and complimentary to the rest of your bedroom. Bold geometric patterns and solid colors are perfect for accent rugs in a modern style. Think bold circles or squares overlapping each other, or colorful ribbon-like lines traversing the rug’s surface. If you selected a patterned bedspread or comforter, choosing an accent rug of a solid, bold color is a great choice. Modern bedroom design wall hangings are typically abstract and very colorful, with strong patterns that make bold statements.

Contemporary Bedroom Design

Contemporary bedroom design is all about what’s new and what’s happening right now. Because of that, it is constantly changing, and it often collides with eclectic, modern, and other design styles. The contemporary style combines natural elements with more rigid, industrial elements to create a perfect harmony of design style. A comfortable environment is very important in contemporary bedroom design, so soft rugs, plush pillows, and luxurious fabrics should be used throughout. Geometric shapes and patterns, bold stripes, and solid blocks of color are all utilized in contemporary bedroom design.

Colors

Neutral colors play a large role in contemporary design, but the way they are paired together and mixed with bolder colors is specific to this style. Neutral colors should be the basis of the design. Think grays, browns, and whites, with a subtle hint of a bolder color in its hue. Natural light and open spaces are important in this design style, so lighter and brighter colors that open up the bedroom are preferable as accents. A bold accent wall or brightly colored piece of furniture is a good option, but be sure not to overdo it. Consider such color combinations as cream and pink, gray and yellow, or brown and green.

Furniture Style

Uniqueness is key in contemporary design, as the style seeks to create new forms and shapes throughout its design elements. Clean lines and sleek shapes merge with comfort and visual appeal in contemporary furniture design. Since contemporary style embraces fewer furniture pieces, it’s important that each piece perfectly represents the contemporary style and makes a strong statement within the bedroom design.

Bedding

Your bedding is likely going to be a focal point in your contemporary bedroom design, so choose bold geometric patterns with plenty of comfortable fabrics. Consider a bedspread with wide red and white stripes, several dark purple circles on a lighter purple background, or a black and white repeating pattern all over. Stay away from quilts and flatter bed coverings, and embrace bright, supple throw pillows and luxurious, fluffy blankets.

Accent Pieces

Minimal accents with clean edges and straight lines are best suited for a contemporary bedroom design. Each piece should be strong and bring drama to the design without taking away from the overall look of the room. Bold accent rugs, as long as they don’t compete with other elements, are great additions. Think about selecting the softest rugs with strong geometric patterns. Wall hangings should consist mostly of abstract, bold, and very large art, with no frame or a very clean, chic frame.

White Bedroom Design

A sister of modern design and also known as minimalist design, this style embraces simplicity in both form and function. Minimalism strips objects of their ornate design and complex decorations to leave a simple, beautiful, and fully functioning design. A white bedroom design is not one of scarcity or lack of design. Rather, it is one of beauty in its humblest form. White design erases clutter and distraction to allow individuals to focus on the modest splendor of an individual piece of furniture, accent piece, or the room itself.

Colors

The most classic color palette of a white bedroom design is—you guessed it—white. Select an off white bedspread, a white area rug, white lamps, and white walls for the most minimalist bedroom design possible. You can add in hints of color, but do so sparingly. You may also choose to include black, gray, brown, or other variations of neutral colors to bring a bit more life into your bedroom. However, do not go overboard, as a white bedroom design relies heavily on simplicity, lack of busyness and clutter, and simple, clean cut pieces.

Furniture Style

When it comes to selecting furniture for your white bedroom design, remember that clean lines and simplicity capture the design style best. Go for pieces with no pull handles, straight edges, and flat surfaces. The fewer embellishments the furniture has, the more closely it will align with white design.

Bedding

White bedroom design requires a focal point, which in the case of a bedroom, should almost always be the bed. A minimalist style may suggest that your mattress is directly on the floor, or you may have a basic, flat bed frame that matches your neutral color palette. If you’d like to add a hint of color, consider using your bedding to do so. Pair a solid purple comforter with white bedding, a white bed, and gray walls, or use a black bedspread on a bright red bed, with white walls and white floors.

Accent Pieces

Your accent pieces—area rugs, lamps, wall hangings, and other décor—should follow the same trends as the rest of the white bedroom design. Simple pieces with no lavish designs and with clean lines should be included sparingly. Minimalism is all about quality over quantity, and that means eliminating clutter. Place a single white vase on your dresser, or hang one monochromatic, geometric painting on the wall above your bed. Choose an accent rug with black vertical lines over a white background, and basic brown lamps to sit on your nightstand.

Shabby Chic Bedroom Design

Seeking elegance through distressed furniture and light, airy colors and fabrics, the shabby chic bedroom design is growing in popularity a great deal. Embracing antiques, comfort, and effortless elegance, shabby chic style finds its roots in cottages and old country homes.

Colors

Shabby chic bedroom design embraces light and subtle colors. Including a lot of white, it also incorporates many pastels, such as baby blue, soft pink, and light green. Faded colors are a favorite in this style, and almost any simple combination of light, airy colors will work, as long as they don’t overpower one another or bring too much color into the bedroom. A singular pop of bright color can also be included in the look for more versatility and excitement.

Furniture Style

Anything that looks worn and antiquated is perfect for a shabby chic bedroom design. Whether metal or wood, the upcycled look is at the heart of this design style. Some furniture pieces can be purchased already made to look shabby chic, while other pieces can be found at flea markets and thrift stores and transformed into the perfect shabby chic furniture.

Bedding

In keeping with the shabby chic color scheme, pastels and faded colors are the best bedding options within this style. Flower prints, classic quilt patterns, and solid neutrals are classic shabby chic bedding choices. Consider pairing a rose-printed bedspread with off-white walls, rose pink accents, and a large, worn, cream-colored dresser. Perhaps you would prefer pale blue walls with a wrought-iron bedframe, complete with a solid cream comforter and pastel green throw pillows.

Accent Pieces

Pastel and patched together rugs and antiquated décor are perfect accents to a shabby chic bedroom design. Consider pieces you might find in a flea market, or similar pieces that are reminiscent of an older style. Faded accent rugs with floral patterns are hugely popular shabby chic accents, along with dresser trinkets made of distressed wood, aged metal, or antiqued painted surfaces.

Does Thread Count Really Matter?

Sferra Egyptian Cotton Sheets

Does a high thread count ensure a better night’s sleep? Thread count is best used as a qualifier for comparing different products within the same brand, this means that a set of 300 thread count sheets from a luxury brand such as Sferra, will offer a tremendous feel, however not as nice as, say, a set of 600 thread count sheets from that same brand.

Thread count is nothing more than the number of threads per square inch. Even that number is somewhat misleading because it says nothing about the strength of the sheet in question. Two sets of sheets, both with a 1200 thread count, could be vastly different in terms of durability. Consider the ply, or number of layers. While both have a 1200 thread count, one has a 600 double-ply, the other a 1200 single-ply. Meaning the durability will be better in the set of sheets with a double-ply. Continue reading

The Ultimate Guide to Bedding Size Chart

The Ultimate Guide to Bedding Size Chart

When it comes to selecting the best bedding for your cozy place of rest, size is everything. You don’t want a too small comforter or an enormously large bedspread, as that would completely hinder your comfort and upset your ability to sleep well. Customizing your bedding to your liking has no set rules, so feel free to get creative, layering several different blankets and blanket types.

A bedspread and comforter can be used interchangeably, but they are two distinct types of blankets. A bedspread is generally larger, intended to cover the entire bed and possibly go down as far as the floor. For example, a full bed mattress measures 54” x 75”, and a full bedspread should measure 96” x 110”. A California king, the largest of all mattresses, is 72” x 84”, and the corresponding bedspread should be 114” x 120”. Bedspreads generally don’t offer as much warmth as a comforter, which should be made of a thicker material and fit the bed differently. A full-size comforter should measure 100” x 106”, while a California king should be 114” x 106”. Comforters are meant for warmth and comfort more than full coverage and attractiveness. An additional blanket option, a quilt, is generally smaller than the other blanket types and is purely for ornamental reasons and, if necessary, extra warmth in colder months. A full size mattress requires a quilt that is 80” x 80”, and a quilt for a California king should be 94” x 104”.

While any blanket option can suit your preferences and meet your needs, make sure you choose the proper size for each different blanket type to perfectly fit your size mattress.
