The Bedroom

The boudoir is one of the areas of your house you can make a dramatic difference with just a few simple changes. After researching a number of best interior designers, home experts and fashion gurus, we’ve whittled this year’s contenders to our favourite 5 bedroom trends:

Wallpaper – One of the most popular movements for this year is the introduction of a bold wallpaper focus wall and remember, the bolder the better!

The Garden 

Whether you have a tiny balcony or a huge backyard to play in, an outdoor space is as important to Australians as the tea to the British! According to Country Living the most important aspects in your garden will be:

Lighting – whether it’s under seating or hanging string lights, extend your time outside with some fabulous artificial brightness

Installed Seating – rather than spending all your cash on an outdoor dining set, make the most of your space by installing some stylish seating for a fraction of the cost

Native Plants – enjoy more of Australia without even leaving your garden by planting some of the country’s best flora and fauna

Fire Pits – whether you’re hosting friends and family or just chilling out solo, a fire pit is a wonderful outdoor center piece for your space… enjoy all the toasted marshmallows you can eat!
