Neutral Minimalistic bedroom and interiors are the latest interior trend

2023 is the year for the soft neutral bedroom, moving away from textured wallpapers, rhinestone encrusted detailing, and crushed velvet.

This year brings the return of soft, minimalistic cleanliness, and velvet was the controversial statement fabric that has inundated our interior decor inspiration for the last decade.

Its connotations as a risqué textile have shifted from possessing regal undertones to having cheaper and tacky implications. 

To embrace this ‘relaxed’ approach to a comforting minimalistic space, avoid loud colours, prints and fabrics opting instead, for something light and fresh to create a warm and inviting aura.

This includes a colour palette of creamy magnolias, light pastels, earthy tones and anything neutral. Paired with an array of textures such as bouclé, wool, linen, glass, ceramics and rattan.

Nottingham’s selection of homeware stores are currently stocked with the perfect variation of interior decor pieces to suit any budget.

We visited Sostrene Green, H&M Home and TkMaxx on the hunt for the perfect decor finds to suit a neutral and minimalistic aesthetic.
