What does the high street have in store for your bedroom? Our picks highlight the top trends to look forward to.
Trend 1: Jungle fever
Escape to warmer climes without leaving the comfort of your bedroom with House of Fraser’s exotic jungle look. Think bold prints in a tropical colour palette teamed with playful accessories that take their cue from Mother Nature. The cute cactus vase gets our vote!
Trend 2: Walk on the wild side
Animal-inspired motifs are another way to bring the outside into your bedroom. Keep it simple with the sophisticated zebra print cushions at M&S or give your bedroom some serious bite with Abigail Ahern’s latest accessories collection for Debenhams, which celebrates exotic creatures great and small.
Trend 3: Tribal retreat
House of Fraser nails the tribal trend by drawing inspiration from modern African design (think bold prints, intricate embroidery and ornate carvings). Simple hand-worked geometric patterns in a predominantly monochrome palette are matched with saturated block colours for a vibrant look.
Trend 4: Oh, we do love to be beside the seaside
Enjoy a staycation courtesy of the in-house design team at Sainsbury’s, which pays homage to magical spots around the UK coast. This translates to organic forms, tactile textures, and a blue and coral palette. Avoid a comedy seaside look by featuring a few nautical-related items. Less is more!
Trend 5: Scandi cool
Cool, clean and sumptuous, Scandinavian design will remain on trend in 2017. Sainsbury’s invites you to indulge in its Ethereal collection of mid-century patterns in pastel hues. Look also for quilted throws and cute embroidered cushions to create a relaxed aesthetic.
There’s no mistaking the source of inspiration for the Stockholm collection at Very: it’s all clean lines, graphic prints and wood accents alongside crisp whites, slate greys and pops of vibrant blue, zingy yellow and spring green.
Trend 6: Turn back time
You’ll find some comforting nostalgia-based looks with Habitat’s Retro Revival trend. Check out the accent cushions sporting retro patterns in an earthy colour palette that ranges from brown and cream to khaki, sunflower yellow, denim blue and lily orange.
M&S will also have you digging out your flares with its Marigold collection. This is summed up by the bedroom below, which features Pippa floral bedding teamed with crochet throws, cross-stitched cushions and tasselled lampshades.
Trend 7: Bedrooms in bloom
Florals are never far from a spring/summer bedroom and this year’s prints are particularly pretty. Whether you prefer your blooms to be loud and proud, vintage or delicately ditsy, you’ll find a design to suit among this year’s crop.
