Bedroom interior design trends 2014 – Raw Materials

Image Posted on

The trend for pared-back, simple living is going to be bigger than ever in 2014, with natural materials such as cotton, wood, stone and metal, influencing lots of the new high street collections. Take inspiration from a back-to-basics approach and decorate your bedroom in a simple yet stylish way. Keep floorboards natural or whitewash them, then paint your walls a soft putty colour inspired by nature – think pebble grey, or mushroom. Place simple, woven rugs made of raffia or wool on the floor for warmth, then shop for chunky, rustic furniture made from raw, unfinished wood. Look for reclaimed pieces that retain all the charm of aged wood. Keep your bedlinen simple – plain white cotton or linen – and invest in a few porcelain accessories such as lamps or vases for an elegant, unfussy look.

Bedroom Interior Design Trends 2014 – Rustic Industrial

Image Posted on

This 2014 bedroom trend is a new take on country. Decorate walls and floors with off-white paint and add colour with curtains and bedlinen in smart blue and taupe striped ticking fabric. Look for chunky, vintage, rustic furniture in weathered, reclaimed wood and use metal luggage trunks as bedside tables – they look smart and are useful for storing spare bedding, too. Keep accessories such as cushions and lamps simple in raw materials such as galvanized steel and brushed linen. Antique clock motifs or elegant script lettering on cushions will give this look a contemporary twist.

Create Rustic Summer Decor for Your Vintage Table!

Having tastefully arranged dining table is an art itself, I love scrolling through the images of seasonal tableware, with the ideas on how to create Christmas or wedding decorated table – some of them look truly stunning, and such table will make a lasting impression on your guests. Sometimes the simpler decor the better, especially if you want to get a rustic feel, with the understated yet gripping effect. Natural linen fabrics, pastel napkins, bare wood table top (don’t cover it to create laid-back outdoorsy feel), cream or dusky pink natural flowers and that’s it – the simpler the better! Try to go with plain dining sets, tables and cups, delicate printed napkins, maybe with flower or dot designs, something in very natural shades, as beige – white or cream – light blue combinations. Stick to cooler shades in the summer, and leave strong warm colours for the Winter time, when you want to create earthy cosy atmosphere. Rustic dining tables, like our Pembroke Drop Leaf Table look stunning with the minimal decor, simply bare essentials, a plate and a napkin, cutlery and a glass of cold summer drink – let this table speak for itself and make an impression on the diners!

Image Posted on

Bring natural beauty to your period property living room with elegant wood textures and surfaces. This 2014 trend is all about mixing different woods together, so choose a pale wood flooring, go for rich, oak wood furniture, then wallpaper your walls with a pale wood-effect digitally-printed wallpaper for a cosy, cabin feel. Keep all the wood completely raw – unpainted and unvarnished – this look is about natural beauty. Keep upholstery simple – a pale grey sofa, a cream rug – some soft, lilac and lavender coloured cushions; The real star of this scheme is the wood, so don’t choose bold or bright accessories or furniture. Perfect if you are planning a new decor for a barn conversion or a country farmhouse!
