Musings: Let’s Take It To The Bedroom

Please note, this is a collaborative post with beds.net

The bedroom is the sanctuary for most of us. We spend a third of our lives asleep meaning a third of our lives are spent in the bedroom. Unless you like to sleep elsewhere…

2020 is all about new. It’s a new decade that has been dubbed the Roaring 20s for a reason. Now whilst you (or me) may not have the budget of the other famous 20s icon, The Great Gatsby, it doesn’t mean your bedroom interiors won’t be on trend for this year. I’ll be delving into a few trends in the post to give your personal sanctuary some life this year.

Classic Blue

The Pantone colour for 2020 is classic blue. It’s clean, elegant and brings a sense of peace and calm to the place you need it most. It need not cost you the world either. All you need is a lick of paint or some accessories to get you started. A couple of ideas to get the upholstery vibes going:

– Painting over your bed-frame

– Painting individual chest of drawers (this works well if the base is white)

– You can never go wrong with a classic blue feature wall either

Go for Grey

Much like classic blue, grey doesn’t mean dark or dull. Monotone colours in the bedroom keep you grounded and why not start with a grey fabric bed?

I haven’t bought a new bed in over 15 years and I think it’s time to look for a new one. I’d never considered a fabric bed before and the more I think about it, the more I want one.

My favourite colour is black and well a black bed doesn’t appeal to me but a grey fabric one does. A grey bed with a classic blue throw means I’ll be on trend and calm in my own personal space.

Millennial Pink

Pink is still in. This beautiful hue had it’s moment in the late 2010s and was seen absolutely everywhere, from coffee shops, to cosmetics and of course the home. Pink doesn’t need to be garish or scary if you chose the right shade. Millennial pink looks beautiful in small doses. Why not try a chair, ottoman or chest?

Textures

Touch, feel, stroke.

Don’t you just love being toasted up in your duvet like a warm cinnamon bun straight out of Crosstown Doughnuts?! No one likes a moth eaten or scratchy blanket that simply needs to binned or used to line your pet’s bed.

On the subject of pets, why not bring some fur in? I don’t mean real fur, unless that’s your thing… I mean faux fur. Imagine chilling out on a faux fur rug with a glass of Malbec, a few candles lit and your favourite book? Sounds like heaven to me. There are lots of faux fur options out there today and if you want to keep costs down I would suggest going to your local market where you can purchase it by the metre. Faux fur duvet anyone?

Will you be redecorating your bedroom this year? I know I will! Comment below and let me know, or tweet me here.

About Me

Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up.  I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
