Chances are, we’ll be spending a lot of time in our homes over the coming weeks and months.

Trying to look on the bright side, this makes it a perfect time to revamp our houses and make them comfortable and chic places to relax.

Instagram is often one of the biggest markers for homeware trends, and bedroom decor in particular is a popular inspo theme.

It can still be hard to know where to begin when embarking on your makeover journey.

So to get you started, the team at bed specialist Time4Sleep analysed the biggest bedroom trends on the ‘top’ images section of the #bedroomdecor hashtag – along with some expert styling tips.

Here are the four trends you should follow if you’re doing your room up this Winter.

Bright white

The research uncovered that 21% of images featured a white colour palette.

From whitewashed walls to crisp white sheets, there are endless ways to use the colour and create a stylish and trend-led space.

If you’re renting, you might already have white walls. Keep most other things crisp and white, and pops of colour you do use will stand out and not clutter the space.

Jonathan Warren, director at Time4Sleep sleep says: ‘White is a bold, stand-out colour scheme that works really well in a master bedroom. 

‘Layer up with soft shades such as grey, pink or burnt orange  to add a touch of colour and really harmonise that crisp, clean look.’

Earthy tones

16% of hashtagged images showcasing muted tones, from rusty oranges to burnt browns.

Jonathan adds: ‘Earthy, natural tones are very on trend at the moment, particularly with the change of the season. Hues of brown, orange and red bring a calming warmth to the bedroom – which is perfect for this time of year.

‘For an understated look, team a statement throw and pillows with white walls, and tick off two trends at once.’

Alternatively, use this palette to go all-out retro 70s, with flashes of deep green or blue to add depth.

50 shades of green

According to the research, one in 10 #bedroomdecor posts featured the versatile colour.

From feature walls to a forest green bed, or even simply styling up with cushions and throws, there is no wrong way to use this colour – just be as bold as you dare.

Nadia McCowan Hill, style expert for Wayfair tells Metro.co.uk: ‘As we look to reconnect with nature, gorgeous green paint tones are springing up and the most versatile of these leafy hues is undoubtedly olive green.

‘Both relaxing and serene, olive acts as the perfect backdrop in living rooms and bedrooms alike. For a sophisticated setting, pair this grown-up green with bleached wood furniture and relaxed rattan, then layer in lots of textures and textiles.’

Natural wood

12% of images on the hashtag’s top list showed statement wood coming through as a clear trend.

Rattan in particular is a popular material at the moment and helps to create a pared-back, sophisticated look.

‘From classic oak to ash tones, one of the benefits of wood is that there is a shade to compliment any room,’ Jonathan adds. 

‘One of the simplest ways to bring this into the bedroom, is to opt for a simple wooden bed or rattan headboard that will look beautifully stylish and stand the test of time.’

Panelling

Alongside the other throwback homewares that have made it into this list, wood panelling is back in a big way.

Research showed that 11% of posts displayed beautiful wall panel designs.

Dark and moody blues and soft greys are a particular favourite at the moment when paired with brass metals and a mixture of textures.

If you’re a renter, just remember you’ll need permission to put these stylish panels on the wall.
