Earlier in the year we looked at some of the top trends for 2015, and now we're dialing it down to a more specific spot: the bedroom. Here are some of our favorite new trends for your sleeping space.

1. Rich, moody colors.
Darker colors are big for any space in the house, but we especially like them in the bedroom, where they impart a sort of sweet somnolence. And you don't have to opt for midnight black to get the look: light greys with hints of grey and black will do nicely, as seen above.

2. Simple, unfussy bedding.
Rejoice, haters of throw pillows (you know who you are), because your tribulations are over. We're seeing a move towards simpler, more practical bedding, part of a general trend towards a more minimal look in the bedroom.

3. Minimalism.
Speaking of which! Less is more, but then sometimes less is just less, but this is a trend that really seems to make sense because if there were ever a room where you were to want something a little less complicated, wouldn't it be the place where you were trying to fall asleep?

4. Sleek industrial touches.
The bedroom is a room that, by definition and also necessity, is dominated by a bed. And beds, unless you have very odd preferences, are usually soft, so it makes sense to balance that out with something with a little angularity, a bit of a no-nonsense approach. Industrial lighting (or furniture) is a great way to add a little kick to your space.

5. Texture.
Whether it's linen bedding, antique furniture or just a very fluffy rug, texture is an especially nice look in the bedroom. Texture is soft and welcoming, and invites touch, and reminds us of nature — all good things for a space that you want to be especially restful. And it's easy to work in to an existing look: just a pillow or a throw or an accent rug will do the trick.
