This season white sheets have been given the boot, replaced by vibrant colours and graphic designs meaning updating your bedroom is as simple as child’s play! Here we take a look at this season’s trends.

Go minimal with modern beddinG The hottest trend in bedding is modern style with sleek lines. Inspired by the clean feel of Japanese bedding, modern bedding is meant to be tucked around the mattress on a platform that shows off the structure of the bed itself. Forget valances and long, draping coverlets. Choose a heavy but flat blanket or sham that fits your mattress with no excess fabric hanging over the edges. Use a small selection of decorative pillows (to accent your tightly-made bed. Choose sheets and covers in warm tones like cream, olive, dark teal and chocolate.

Choose textures and prints over fussy beddinG The dust-gathering, fussy trend of using dozens of pillows and excess blankets has thankfully ended. A bed full off pillows and throws only adds extra work when it’s time to make the bed. Give your bedding pop and style by using coverlets, blankets and pillows with texture. Use no more than three accent pillows and add colour to the bed with a textured or printed blanket draped artfully over the foot of the bed.

add some Colourful beddinG The easiest way to create a stunning new look is to change the colour of your bedding. Try a duvet cover or throw pillows in the season’s hottest colour trends, such as grey and orange or bold plum. Make an all-white bed and accent it with decorative pillows in jewel tones like turquoise or bright metallics. To bring the entire look together, invest in one or two accent pieces in your room that draw from the colour scheme of your bedding, such as a decorative vase, mirror or wall art.

blaCk is baCk Taking cues from this season’s runway fashions, modern, streamlined linens in classic black and white look crisp and super-stylish in just about any bedroom. Team with simple chrome accessories to create a dramatic effect

last but not least! Pretty sheets promise your bedroom an instant pick-me-up, but new linens should always be laundered before making the bed. For the softest, sweet-smelling results, wash them with a fabric softener and scent booster and enjoy that blissful night’s sleep.
