New Year, New Look for the Bedroom 2016

Every year, I like to buy new bedsheets ready to put on our bed on New Years Day. There’s something about washing the old year away and starting the new year with clean sheets and a fresh new look. It’s something I’ve been doing ever since we got married, my own little tradition!

This year I’ve been having a look online to see what’s out there. I’m feeling for a pastel look as I feel the bedroom should be a calming, relaxing place, with pops of colour from accessories such as cushions. Here are my Top 10 Bedroom Picks for the New Year:

Top 10 Bedroom Picks for the New Year 2016

1. Pastel Double Duvet Set – H&M, £29.99

2. Magnificent Cushion – Tesco, £4

3. Ben de Lisi Home Aqua diamond ‘Your Side My Side’ bedding set -Debenhams, from £40 – £70 according to size

4. Stripey Fitted Sheet – H&M, £9.99 – £14.99

5. Neo Eyelet Curtains in Grey/Red – The Yorkshire Linen Co, from £21.99 – £59.99 according to size

6. Earle Curtain Tie Back in Duck Egg – The Yorkshire Linen Co, £4.99 each

7. Utah Duck Egg Pencil Pleat Curtains – The Yorkshire Linen Co, from £19.99 – £59.99 according to size

8. Cotton Rich Oversized Geo Bed Set – Next, from £25 – £55  according to size

9. Hello Sunshine Cushion – Tesco, £8

10. Ben de Lisi Grey Broken Geometric Cushion – Debenhams, £28

I’ve found 2 pastel duvet covers I like in light blue/green, that would look good with a bright cushion. I really love patterned fitted sheets – for that little surprise when you lift up your duvet cover. Neutral colours such as grey and white in this H&M stripey sheet are ideal.

I would normally say to go with neutral curtains so you can change your bedding’s theme easily, but I found this bold patterned pair from Yorkshire Linen that I love. I think it would really brighten up the bedroom, and grey and red matches most of my duvet covers anyway. Or I would go with grey neutral curtains, jazzed up with beaded tie-backs.

My fave trend from 2015 was the geometric trend, so I hope it’s not going to disappear in 2016! Next do this ‘oversized’ geometric pattern, which would look cool with bright coloured cushions too.

Hopefully these will be in the sales. I’ll be bedroom shopping this week anyway, and I’ll let you know what I go for on New Years Day!

Do you have any traditions you do on New Years Day? Are you getting a new look for your bedroom? I’d love to hear.

  1. Happy new year Sabrina and YES! Just had a new look for my bedroom funnily enough — I’ve got some lovely new bedding from Habitat — very plain and simple — but also got a fab cushion and geometric throw too to jhoosh it all up!

    Thanks for linking up with us lovely xx #HomeEtc


  2. I love of the look of the mint bedding from H&M reasonable price too. I also love the like the look of the stripped fitted sheet. My tradition on new years day is to start writing my goals up for the year ahead.


  3. What a great, trendy list. I’ve been seeing a lot of geometric shapes used as patterns for pillows and throws, so I’m absolutely loving numbers 8 and 10. Also, I can speak from experience, I have the Your Side My Side duvet cover and it really pulls my room together very nicely.


  4. oh how exciting! We are going to be getting a new mattress soon and I’d love to get some nice new bedding to go with it! Angela x


  5. Gorgeous selection, I really love the Ben de Lisi Aqua Diamond set. I’ve really been longing to revamp some rooms in our house lately, the bedroom might be a good place to start!
