Prints charming: the patterns you need to know this season
Gone are the days of cold minimalism and vacant spaces — expressive pattern, colour, and nature inspired trends are having a big moment. So, get your cup of tea and pinterest board ready as we break down our top 3 bedroom (timeless) trends using pattern and print.
Vintage inspired florals
A mix of rustic splendour and rural escapism — think romantic wallpaper prints, homespun throw rugs, gingham accents and the scent of crumbly pastries baking in the oven.
For a contemporary take on the cottagecore trend, we are dreaming of our Empire bed. The romantic floral motif complimented by curved nostalgic shapes instantly transports us to a simpler time and place. In a time when technology doesn’t turn off, your bedroom becomes the perfect place to find solace and rest surrounded by romance and a soothing colour palette. Our favourite vintage inspired tones include earthy browns, soft pinks and reassuring greens, mix with your favourite neutral colours for a modern twist.
Design detail: Add a crisp white piped edge to highlight the unique shape of the Empire design.
Trend: Return to traditional
Stripes aren’t a new concept in the design world, but we can’t get enough of them. Classic, crisp and playful, they’re a timeless way to make a style statement.
Meet our Bailey bed head in Henley Stripe – where classic lines meet contemporary luxury. Finished in 100% linen stripe, the contrast piped bordered edge frames the design beautifully resulting in a crisp, classic feel . To complete the look we’ve paired the Bailey bed head with our iconic hand crafted Lucca bedside table, finished in our latest earthy shade of green, “deep bottlebrush”.
Stripes can be a great way to create an illusion of space, similar to striped clothing on a body, a striped bed head can make a room look wider or higher than it is. Layering is key, adding texture and limiting your colour palette to just a few shades will avoid feeling cluttered or overwhelmed.
Design detail: For a bolder look, add a piped edge in a contrasting colour to the back wall to help frame your stripes.
This one is not for the faint of heart, for the rule breakers and the lovers of custom pieces. Styling expressive patterns is all about embracing the layering of beautiful fabrics in a range of unique patterns and textures.
Using scale to showcase your pattern will allow you to incorporate multiple prints in your bedroom without clashing. Mix up with textures as pictured here with a custom tassel embellishment along the trim of the bedhead. We absolutely adore this custom bedhead for our client Helen McVean Interiors – using nature inspired tones and animal themed patterns on the bedhead design results in a cosy, luxurious space which will have you dreaming in no time.
Design tip: Choose colours from your patterned fabric to style and dress your bed. These can be changed seasonally and will help tie the whole room together.
