If there is one room in your home that should truly reflect your taste, personal style and surround you in a world of uncompromising comfort, then it is the bedroom. This is your personal sanctuary that allows you to rest, rejuvenate and introspect, and often it is the room in which many of us spend most of our time at home! And with each passing year, it seems homeowners across the planet are veering more and more towards this idea of a reclusive and comfortable personal hub when it comes to designing and decorating their bedrooms. And as the first two months of 2016 rush past us, we take a look at the top trends that will shape bedrooms in the months ahead.
Reclaimed Wood Eco-conscious homeowners have shaped quite a few design trends in the last decade, and that green wave is steaming ahead with another cool addition to its ever-growing arsenal - reclaimed wood.

Of course, these stunning accent walls seamlessly blend in with any bedroom style, and you can even expand the use of reclaimed timber in the bedroom with a custom bed, side tables or even ceiling inserts crafted from this upcycled delight.

Classy Wallpaper The story of wallpaper across the last few decades is truly amazing for anyone who even remotely follows the world of design. Once a shining star in the decorating landscape, it was quickly branded as an outcast, with people running around trying to remove old wallpaper from their living room and bedroom walls. But that tide quickly turned, and 2015 saw the revival of wallpaper, with designers once again using it to usher in color and contrast. If you always wanted to try out wallpaper in the bedroom, then this spring is the perfect time to get started.
