What’s trending in bedroom decor?

2 years ago by

Colour, décor, and design play an important role in turning your bedroom into your sanctuary. If you’re thinking about freshening up your personal space or giving it a whole new look, the first step is to find out what’s trending in bedroom décor. You don’t need to hunt far and wide to find that out, as we’ve brought together some of this year’s biggest trends to make life a little easier for you.

The classic bedroom design trends of carefully chosen accent lighting, good quality bedding, and practical storage of clothing and other personal items aren’t going anywhere. What you will find below are some fantastic ideas and fresh looks for bedrooms in 2022.

Without further ado, let’s see what colours are trending in home décor for bedrooms so you can start planning your painting or wallpapering project.

Sumptuous boho chic colour palettes

You couldn’t turn around without seeing boho chic in the early 2000s and the good news is that this vibrant trend is back – at least in terms of what’s trending in bedroom décor. If you like the idea of adding real character to your personal space with a boho chic colour palette, focus on the warmer side of the colour wheel.

Bringing in reds, oranges, yellows, and yellow-based greens are increasingly popular right now. Using paprika orange and a few splashes of cinnamon red create a bedroom that’s warm and inviting without being overpowering or overly energetic. You could also use a contrasting colour from the cooler side of the colour wheel for more balance. Increase your boho bedroom vibes by incorporating bamboo, wicker, or rattan furniture, one-of-a-kind buys from vintage, retro, or charity shops, and home-made items.

Delightfully dark and brooding

This year, people are also opting for the delightfully dark and brooding. The bold colour choices that began in living rooms and later made their way into kitchens have now reached bedrooms.

Don’t feel you need to limit your colour choices to your walls. You can continue the look and feel in your bedroom with bedding in your preferred colours. A few key shades to consider for paint or wallpaper include emerald green, night-sky navy blue, and sultry violet.

Neutral colours are (still) now

Neutral colours have been one of the answers to the question, “What’s trending in bedroom décor?” for the past few years. This isn’t surprising, given the number of people who’ve rediscovered their bedrooms as spaces that are for more than just sleeping in. They’re also places in which to relax, meditate, and indulge in a bit of much-needed self-care. With that in mind, we’re happy to say that neutral colours have claimed their spot among this year’s top home décor and design trends.

However, this time round, the trick is all about working with neutral palettes in developed and dynamic ways. The result should be a diversity of neutral colours that is anything but boring.

Beautiful botanicals

Botanical motifs have emerged as one of this year’s big bedroom décor trends, thanks to their uplifting, energising qualities. What’s more, they’re inviting and fresh without being too feminine. Bring botanicals into your bedroom by stencilling designs on your walls or by wallpapering your room with a wallpaper that features botanical prints.

Various shades of green are the obvious choice, but you don’t need to limit yourself in that regard. Shades of lavender and lilac work well for botanical designs too. If you’re looking for a good contrast colour for those designs, consider using beige, ivory, or white.


No matter when you ask what home décor is trending right now, stripes are going to be part of the answer. This year, the trend is informed by iconic French designs, so think Gingham patterns (Vichy check) and Breton stripes.

Painting stripes on your walls can be a fiddly, time-consuming job, so the best way to approach this trend when incorporating it into your bedroom is to choose a wallpaper with a stripe pattern.
