Make Your Bedroom an Oasis


A well-designed bedroom is a key element in getting a good night’s rest. Trends change from year to year, and for 2024, look for comfortable, warm spaces that are drenched in tranquility and relaxation.

Mixed Design Styles

If you can’t pick just one style, don’t worry. You don’t have to. Instead, aim for a collected look, using each wall to highlight a fresh design element.

“This type of contrast on the walls is definitely trending,” says designer Vanessa DeLeon to Better Homes & Gardens.

“When selecting a color or pattern for your room, go bold, but just make sure whatever you choose reflects your personality and style.”

Look to achieve harmony in your design.

Build your color scheme from a print or linens and run it throughout the space.

Natural Lighting

This year will see a shift toward natural lighting that highlights artful arrangements of texture, Grace Denniston from Kalco Lighting told Better Homes & Gardens. Fixtures will sport more organic materials, such as alabaster, jute, leather and wood, and sport neutral tones.

“The creamy white undertones of alabaster and Capiz shells or the earthy tan and brown of abaca and rattan add softness and balance in a room with green or tinted pastels but also work well in neutral settings,” Denniston says.

Textured Accent Walls

Take a baby step into bold with an accent wall. Taniya Nayak from HGTV ad vises choosing patterns and motifs that speak to you. Use one piece as an inspiration and choose your palette and other options from there. And get creative with your millwork to create a subtle design statement. “Whether you opt for a bold hue or a subtle tone, a painted wainscot can add a dose of color to an area without overwhelming it,” Nayak says.

Ditch the White Trim

In the same vein, forget the off-white and white trim.

“We used to see walls being painted a bold color and the trim and molding being painted white, but like the flip of a switch, we’re seeing the opposite,” Nayak says. Window trim, doors and door casings, baseboards and more are getting a dose of color.
