If you’re looking to give your bedroom a sharp and stylish makeover in 2016, then you’re in luck as it looks like the shabby chic trend is finally on the way out and we can all enjoy living in the future thanks to some modernist designs that give you a contemporary feel without sacrificing any of the comfort.
It’s the trend for metallics in interiors that has dominated our homes in 2016 with everything from metal beds to stainless steel kitchen work surfaces giving us easy access to that industrial chic.
This is a look that works brilliantly in the bedroom with the on-trend copper continuing to add a touch of edgy, yet warming colour in everything from bedside lamps to bookshelves. But whilst the use of copper is a failsafe formula for modernism, it’s critical to try and make sure that the effect isn’t too overwhelming by using some complementary hues like blues or the failsafe neutral tones of white and beige.
Even something as traditional as the bed can be given a modern revamp for 2016 with the likes of Bedstar giving us the trusted metal bed frame in a whole new range of shapes and styles that could easily form the central point of your modernist bedroom makeover when accompanied with some softer tones and occasional bursts of colour.
Making sure that your modern bedroom doesn’t look too sterile is something that should also be considered which is why introducing a few natural textures can be a good idea. This can come in the form of a few rustic wicker baskets for storage, or even some geometric patterned wall hangings can also form a suitably striking impression.
In fact using geometric shapes in your interiors are a great way of staying on-trend whilst adding an individual touch as there’s an endless range of abstract designs that can easily be implemented to all manner of objects like soft furnishings or even headboards for your metal bed.
And whilst many modern designs seem to relish the straight line, there have been a few innovative creations that show how soft, curved features can look particularly great in 2016.
Whether it’s a curved metal bedstead that forms an eye-catching focus to your sleeping space, or even the ombre effect allowing soft edges to blend between different colours, it’s all part of giving your bedroom a striking and individual modern look for 2016
