If you are considering redecorating your bedroom this year, then you should certainly consider one of the following top trends for 2013…

First and foremost, let’s deal with colour. Every year a new and exciting palette reaches the forefront of design, and this year there are several colours worth looking out for. One colour that has shot to the top of interior designs most wanted is grey. Ok, so grey may not sound very exciting on the surface, but when it comes to your bedroom it takes on a whole new lease of life.

Grey replaces white, cream, or even black in being your neutral or base colour. You can then build upon the grey using colour laying. The good thing about grey is that almost every colour matches it – apart from brown. Moreover, grey enhances the other colours around it. Grey teamed with any of the following works beautifully; wine, rose, sky blue, teal, mint, fuchsia, blackcurrant, lemon, navy, and more. The choices are endless, meaning grey does not limit your style.


Nevertheless, if you are looking for more of an ‘in your face’ colour, then think green and red. Our taste for the lavish and opulence is well and truly coming back this year.

Once you have given some thought to the different colour trends for 2013, you should then concern yourself with different furniture pieces. It is all about convenience this year. Think; bed side tables, mini fridges, shoe racks, and so on and so forth. Basically, any piece of furniture that will make your life easier. With the hustle and bustle of everyday life in the modern world, a bedroom should provide a place that is easy, relaxing, and convenient.
