Fashion has gone minimalist in the bedroom department. Styles and themes for the bedroom are constantly changing. This year, designs are turning back to nature, capitalising on light and space.
From a colour perspective, blue and beige are out. So too is the linear, straight-line approach for furniture and its arrangement. Instead, embrace the notion of natural living with light wood, wicker furniture and natural, woven cloth.
A “statement” piece of furniture – an item that is unique – should become the focal point of the modern bedroom.

Prints, sketches and watercolours are popular decorations for this year. This synchronises with trends for the rest of the house. For example, cultural authentic art is back in fashion as designers turn away from the laser precision of factory-made furniture.
Here are nine some tips for a thoroughly modern bedroom:
Make some space – Your master bedroom should be spacious. A minimalist approach to the furnishings will go a long way to creating an atmosphere of airy lightness. A good de-clutter will go a long way to achieving this result, too.
A healthy sleep – Install wooden and woven furniture that represents a back-to-nature approach to the room. This is designed to give you a greater sense of wellbeing. Invest in a wooden bed, as these never go out of fashion. Synthetic materials are out in 2019.
Take out the carpet – Yes, really. The carpet goes. It holds dust and mites, and represents the antithesis of your new approach to healthy living and, maybe, a better sleep. Fabulous rich floorboards with rugs of natural fabric are your perfect foundation for a 2019 master bedroom.
Thank you, fans — And with that farewell, the ceiling fan departs for 2019. The visual impact of a large central fan is verboten. Instead, consider a stand-up fan in a corner, or two small fans on either side of the room to circulate the air. Ideally, the stylists of today want you to get rid of the humble fan altogether.
Shake up the bedding – Don’t make your bed look like it’s escaped from a hotel. Put a bit of fun and surprise into your bedding. This whole matching thing is over-rated in 2019. Think of your bedding as a blank canvas and create a unique, wonderful tableau with natural fabrics that complements your back-to-nature approach.
Make it handmade – High-quality natural fabrics are being used for couches and chairs. Consider neutral colours if you favour a feature wall with a strong colour.
Balance colours – If you choose to use green as a feature wall, then consider more neutral colours elsewhere. Busy rooms, especially bedrooms, feel small.
Art for art’s sake – Artisan pieces with authentic cultural connection and natural fabrics provide another element of nature. Tapestries, rugs and throw-cushions are a great way to embrace this trend.
Create an oasis – Colours of soft greens are designed to offer a relaxing environment while the minimalist approach to furniture will make your life feel less cluttered and busy.
