Every year, the colour experts at Pantone choose a ‘colour of the year’ – but for 2016, they’ve actually chosen two that work together in harmony: Rose Quartz, a pink tone, and Serenity, a pale blue.

So if you want to be bang on trend, you can’t go wrong with Silentnight’s new Miraform Opulent in the Cornflower colourway [9], which is available exclusively from Bensons for Beds.

As the people at Pantone say: “The cool, tranquil blue reflects connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.” Just right for the bedroom then.

If a tidy bedroom is more likely to engender in you a ‘soothing sense of order and peace’ than the colour of your bed, the Gabriella fitted bedroom design [11] could be just what you’re looking for. Smooth, clean lines with fashionable matt finish and integral handles, it’s available in willow, taupe, cream and white from Betta Living – who also do fitted bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens, if you want to spread your new-found sense of order through the whole house…

Vintage vibe

On a more playful note, we love the treehouse inspired cabin bed from DesResDesign [10] – it’s a sure-fire way to ensure your little ones are keen to get upstairs to bed every night!

And the latest bedlinen design by Sanderson, Hollyhocks [4], could well have the same effect on grown-ups. Who wouldn’t want to curl up and fall asleep under a duvet featuring bouquets of prettily coloured blooms with a vintage feel? Pair with crisp white and metallics for a contemporary edge, or let vintage reign and combine with shabby chic accessories. It’s printed onto a 300 thread count, pure cotton percale so however you choose to style it, it will feel wonderfully luxurious.

And now you don’t even have to get out of bed to open the bedroom blinds in the morning! Duette’s energy-saving electric blinds [1] can be opened and closed at the touch of a button and the controls can be fitted to walls, or remote, battery-powered controls are also available. The system means that across a bank of windows, each shade can move in perfect alignment in one fluid movement – and you can schedule the operation of blinds while you’re away on holiday, or out for the day or evening too, giving the impression the house is occupied.
