The bedroom is an important space in the home, it’s an escape from the day to day stresses and activities of the real world.

In 2012, there will be a number of bedroom design trends and interior design trends that can be used to update a bedroom or master bedroom space.

Color Trends for 2012

Color is one of the easiest ways to update a bedroom interior design, whether it’s a master bedroom design or a guest bedroom design. That being said, there are a number of hues that will be trendy for 2012. Black and white color palettes are back with a vengeance in 2012 and pair well with bold or subtle pops of colors.

Look for color palettes that create a dramatic effect, as these are most trendy for the upcoming 2012 year.

Paint is an inexpensive, easy way to update the look and feel of any bedroom design.

Golden hues will also be quite popular for 2012. Warm shades, including mustard yellow, brilliant marigold and sunny sunflower hues will all be making their way into the interior design world.
