A new year is the perfect time for new beginnings, especially when it comes to your home decor. And what better space to refresh than the room where you start each new day?
To provide you with inspiration for your decor endeavors, we turned to Instagram (as we do every week) and we scrolled through hundreds of bedroom posts, seeking out the cutting-edge looks that racked up the most likes. And, as always, we’ve got the details on how to steal the look.
So whether you’re looking to bring a bold new look into your bedroom this year, or just to make a few meaningful additions, we’ve got you covered. Here are five first-look bedroom trends of 2021.
1. Sage-green bedding
Quite possibly the easiest way to remake your bedroom this year is by updating the main focal point (aka your bed) in a trending color, like this sage-green linen featured by @homewithkelsey.
“Sage green has been a trending color in home decor for years now, so it’s no surprise it’s made its way from kitchen cabinets and wall paint to bed linens,” says designer Andra DelMonico of Next Luxury.
“The color is soft and sophisticated, giving your space an elegant, relaxing feel. Try pairing your sage bedding with wood grains and other soft colors, like pale yellow, cream, or even pastel pink,” she says.

2. Midnight accent wall
Looking to make an even bigger change to your bedroom in the new year? Look no further than this midnight accent wall featured by @mikaswohnsinn.
“Black is bold, sophisticated, and a bit masculine,” says DelMonico. “Painting an accent wall black can give your home a sleek and modern feel, and it can also bring depth and coziness to a space by reducing the amount of harsh, bright white. Pair your black wall with lighter or bright furniture pieces and accents to keep the room feeling welcoming.”

3. Black and white tribal rug
Speaking of bold, we can’t get enough of these trending black and white tribal rugs—like this one from @arrowsandbow.
“Tribal rugs are popular due to their geometric patterns and plush textures,” says Kobi Karp of Kobi Karp Architecture & Interior Design.
“The black and white style is admired for the minimalistic and monochromatic elements, while this tribal look is part of the boho style, one of the most popular and rising trends in fashion and interior design,” says Karp. “A tribal rug like this one also has an artisan feel to it, which gives it a unique human and cultural aesthetic that people really seek out.”

4. Iron canopy bed frame
This trending iron canopy frame from @greywillowdesign is sure to give your space that one-of-a-kind vibe in the new year.
“The canopy bed has made a comeback, especially during the unprecedented times of 2020,” says Karp. “People tend to want to be in spaces that bring a sense of comfort and safety, one of the main features this bed frame provides. The iron material brings a modern twist to a classic structure as well as a luxurious appeal to the bedroom, and a bit of rustic charm.”

5. Vintage screen
We might have saved the best for last with this gorgeous vintage screen featured by @chairishbydesign.
“With vintage design styles making a comeback, this is the perfect way to add both an old and new design feature in your space,” says Karp. “A vintage screen like this one adds a reflective and eye-catching aesthetic. This trend works because it adds style, beauty, and versatility—as it can mimic a headboard or be used as a room divider.”
