Out with the Artificial and In with the Natural
Earthy tones and textures have always had a calming effect on spaces. Using earthy colors and materials such as wood, straw, or wicker gives bedrooms an added layer of comfort and calmness (via Insider). This year, most bedroom decor features a lot of cerused lumber used for flooring, furniture pieces, and even wall paneling. There is a plethora of shades available to match your mood—everything from the inkier gray to the pale whitewashed finish. A designer, Elaine Griffin, has described it as the hottest look of the year. The cerused wood can be used with open-grained hardwood, but most people prefer cerused oak (via Apartment Therapy).
Apart from cerused wood, traditional materials such as rattan and wicker are used in modern furniture styles. Wicker chairs, rattan benches, storage boxes, and baskets made of straw, rattan, or wicker are ideal for updated bedroom design. Browns, beiges, forest greens, and all shades of rust have taken over fabrics and textiles, especially in upholstered furniture pieces. Sofas, throw pillows, and even upholstered headboards now feature these warm hues, specifically focal point design pieces.
