If you’ve been searching for a way to try out some 2017 style trends without investing a huge amount of time or money, look no further than your bedroom. Fashion and bedding are comparable and affordable ways to look current without making a huge commitment — especially when you consider that the alternative might mean springing for a full makeover.
In fact, your small bedroom may be a blessing for a better night’s sleep. The American Sleep Association recommends keeping stimulating activities out of the bedroom. They warn that distractions like TV, internet, and work can disrupt your sleep patterns. So, the less there is to do in your bedroom, the more sleep you set yourself up for. How’s that for smart design?
As for how to pull this trend off without having the look feel overwhelming, there are a few tricks to keep in mind. Even when you’re only considering duvets, shams and throw pillows, stick to a maximum of three patterns and follow the 60/30/10 rule. Choose one pattern to be the main visual element and use it throughout 60% of the space, the second pattern to accent 30% of the space, and a third, bolder option to be used in the final 10%. For each one, be sure to vary the type and scale of pattern you’re using, so they don’t seem too repetitive.
