Furniture Trends Of 2015: Use Them For Inspiration When Refurnishing Your Bedroom

Posted on: 23 September 2015


Trends develop in home furnishings just as they do in fashion and technology. While you don't want to decorate your bedroom in a trendy style you won't love for at least a few years to come, looking at the latest trends in furnishing can help give you inspiration if you are having trouble choosing how to refurnish and redesign your bedroom. Here are a few of the biggest bedroom furnishing trends from 2015 to help inspire you to really change your bedroom design this time instead of only tweaking its look. 

1. Mid-century Modern

Now that it is well into the 2000s, mid-century designs are popular, as they can add a very comforting, nostalgic feel to a bedroom. The one place in your home that you want to feel coziest in is your bedroom, and its design should make you feel happy every time you enter it. 

Throwback wall paper, such as paisley, has been a popular way to add mid-century feel to a room. Wallpaper itself is also a 2105 home design trend. Another great way to integrate mid-century design into your bedroom is by making an iconic chair a center of your design. Mid-century chairs that can work well in the bedroom include womb chairs, which are large, cozy lounge chairs, and egg chairs

These chairs are retro yet modern enough that your investment will last for many years, and you can then keep them around when you decide to redecorate again in the future. 

2. Bold Colors

If you tend to stick to neutral colors when decorating, but you love a bold color, such as dark purple or teal, then another 2015 trend may inspire you. Bold-colors in decorating are very popular this year, and you can choose just one bold color to work around or a few that work well together. If you choose one main bold wall color, such as royal purple, you can then add furniture in a lighter purple tone to create a beautiful, monochromatic look.

Or you can choose to mix-and-match bold colors instead, such as teal and bright yellow, or even black and white. If you pick two colors, then choose one for the walls and carpet and one for furniture. Then, tie the two colors together with patterned throw pillows and comforters that contain both of the colors. 

3. Graphic Prints

Graphic prints are also big in 2015, and these prints work well with bold color schemes. This year's prints are very different from the subdued floral patterns or stripes that you may be used to seeing in bedrooms. Instead, they mix and match geometric shapes and patterns of many colors and sizes. If you are used to sticking to solid colors, then this trend can help you begin to think more out of the box with your designs and realize that you can have more fun with design. 

When tying the bold colors of your bedroom together, find graphic printed throw pillows and bedroom rugs that contain them both colors. Since throw pillows are so affordable, you can replace them whenever you become bored with the designs you have and want to sample new ones. 

4. Mixed Metal Decor

Not only are metal accent pieces popular this year, such as metal vases and hanging wall art, but mixed metals are even more trendy. That means you can choose silver-toned flower vases, rose-gold picture frames, and a gold-toned vanity mirror. While you don't have to incorporate every metal you can find into your design, this trend can help you realize that it really is okay to mix metals nowadays. 

So, if you choose that bedroom set with brass poles supporting a canopy, then don't be afraid that your rose-gold picture frames won't match. You can have fun with metals and stop thinking you are "breaking rules" when mixing them together.
