Simple doesn’t have to mean boring, especially when it comes to modern style furniture, which is all about clean lines and simple design. A great place to incorporate this idea of simple furnishings is the bedroom, where the uncomplicated style provides a sense of calm and rest. Contemporary beds inspired by the designs of the 50’s and 60’s are becoming increasingly popular as a 2016 bedroom trend, and for good reason, because they are as stunning as they are simple.
One important factor in choosing your bed is the material it is made out of. For a modern bedroom pick a bed that is made with natural materials. Woods like walnut, oak, elm and alder and natural upholstery such as cotton, wool, silk and leather are excellent choices for a contemporary bed according to Lushome.
Another key in making your bedroom modern is to choose simple patterns such as geometric and floral motifs. You can incorporate these patterns not only in the bedspread, pillows and decor of your bedroom, but also in the bed itself, such as with the pin tuck design on the headboard of the Barrett Bed.
As with all aspects of the modern style, colors should be simple but not monochromatic. The aforementioned Lushome article states, “Sophisticated room colors, warm creamy beige tones and subdued color shades of beige and ash tones are modern bedroom design trends that make decorating more interesting and creative.” So chose neutral hues as your main colors such as for your walls and bed, but then have fun adding pops of color in the details. They recommend bold colors like turquoise blue, light green, fuchsia and coral.
