New England style is closely related to Colonial design, which dates back to the 17th Century, when settlers first came to America. Inspired by the architecture and interiors from homes in England, not much changed over the years for New England decor.
Of course, you don't have to live in New England to bring a bit of this classic American style to your home. The essential elements - plush furniture, smooth tongue and groove panelling, nautical colours and accessories - are easy to import into any space, whether you live in a quaint Oxfordshire cottage or a sprawling American ranch. When starting your New England room design, keep in mind the uncluttered look of this period. Add rustic touches to a coastal colour scheme to inject your home with some of the original themes of a New England home.

White and Neutral Colours
Light, bright and airy, a neutral colour scheme will help to make your coastal style bedroom a perfect place to relax and unwind. Blue and white striped soft furnishings tick all the boxes for beach-chic design, with a nod to the nautical theme, or keep it simple with beautiful, crisp white Egyptian cotton sheets.
This is an instantly recognisable New England design staple, and including shell accessories or a quirky lamp adds that perfect finishing touch without creating a cluttered or busy feel. Inject some colour with faded stripes or pretty florals to add some pattern to the decor.

Embrace the timeless New England design appeal of natural materials by stashing away clutter in hand-woven baskets, and using wicker laundry bins in keeping with your colour scheme to tie the look together. Or bring your whole room together by matching a hand crafted chest of drawers to your wooden bed, giving ample storage space whilst keeping the style of the room.
White wood panelled walls and neutral coloured rugs are a great example of how to bring this design into your own bedroom.
