Bedding 2018 - The Latest Trends
As with other decorating trends, the arrival of the new bedding ranges is hotly anticipated. At the end of each year, shops launch their new ranges, some of which will set the new trends for the next season.
Many people, and especially fans of interior design, expectantly await the news.
Home textiles aren’t like men or women’s fashion, which can differ hugely from year to year. Often they can be very similar to previous years’ trends.
We can see the greatest changes in the colors designers are using.
In today’s article, we’ll talk about the latest bedding trends for 2018.
2018’s bedding colors
2018’s color pallet is an interesting one.
On the one hand, we’re seeing all the classic neutral tones – from whites and beiges to greys. These colors bring a feeling of brightness and freshness to a room, making them feel natural.
The good thing about these colors is they never go out of fashion, so you can use the same fabrics year on year, combining them with different colors or patterns as they come into fashion.
Plus, pale and neutral colors look great any time of year.
On the other hand, we find more vibrant colors, with pineapple yellow and coral red, characteristic of the recent tropical trends we’ve been seeing. Millennial pink and wine red are also some of the most popular colors for 2018’s bedding.
As for dark colors, we find a refreshing new bottle green, a color which oozes elegance and style.
And finally, the undisputed king of 2018 – and if we’re honest, of 2017 too – is indigo. This shade of blue is so elegant, and brings so much character to a room.
Must-have bedding fabrics
When it comes to the latest bedding trends, it’s not just about the colors – it’s also about the fabrics.
Fabrics can vary from season to season – some are lighter and perfect for spring and summer, whereas others are thicker and better for winter.
In 2018, the hottest trends in home interior fabrics are all sustainably sourced, natural fabrics.
More and more people are concerned about the environment, and that concern also extends to how our textiles are made.
It’s important to mention that the textile industry is one of the most polluting in the world. It doesn’t just produce greenhouse gases but also pollutes rivers and springs with contaminated water. Not to mention the amount of water and energy this type of industry consumes.
As a result of all this, we’re seeing that 2018 is offering us more textiles colored with organic dyes.
Many people are already enjoying the return of tie-dye, which involves coloring a fabric by submerging it in dye. The result is unique, personalized, hippie chic.
Bedding – textile trends for 2018
This year’s textile trends feature more exotic styles, like those we’ve already seen in 2018’s bedding trends.
You’ll find that different cultural styles will be some of the most prominent next season, with clear African, Indian and Moroccan influences.
These styles are characterized by eye-catching prints, which stand out, not just because of the patterns used, but also thanks to the bright colors.
Another of the reigning trends for this year is the tropical style, which is perfect for summer, as well as botanical inspired patterns.
2018’s styles are inspired by nature, and aim to bring it right into your home.
As for the textures, we have to say, 2018 is a real mixture.
This layering trend attempts to create arrangements which give a feeling of comfort while creating something that looks visually stunning.
Extra chunky arm-knit fabrics will be one of the biggest bedding stars of 2018.
Faux fur, tasseled, velvet, cotton or wool pillows with an arm-knit blanket is a great combination.
Bedding trends have changed slightly from 2017 to 2018.
The color pallet has changed the most since last year.
But this year’s bedding also continues the trends that began in 2017.
For example, we also saw this year’s tropical and floral designs last summer.
Other styles like Indian and Moroccan have been taking the interior design world by storm, especially in styles like boho-chic or other exotic designs.
The trend of mixing fabrics and layering textures or cushions on beds is highly influenced by the Nordic style, as well as industrial and rustic designs.
The undeniable favorite of 2018 is the Nordic quilt. However, this year we’re seeing far more quilts than normal, especially in the warmer months.
There’s no doubt that one of the biggest bedding trends is the increased respect for the environment when it comes to choosing fabrics.
This trend should never go out of style and hopefully more and more people will start to adopt it over the coming years.
The arrival of bedding made from environmentally friendly fabrics is a sign that ecology and caring for the planet is something that has to influence every aspect of human life. Including interior design.
