Your bedroom is the most private space in your home. Your beautiful boudoir should be a place that makes you feel calm and relaxed, a place that welcomes you to unwind and feel at peace. With all the mayhem circulating our day to day lives it’s so important that our bedrooms feel lovely, laid back and look as sumptuous and luxurious as possible. So with that in mind, here are a few simple tricks to making sure your bedroom feel extra special. 80
In order for our bedrooms to feel calm we must first ensure they are organised and free of clutter and mess. And what better time for a spring clean, than, well, spring! Take the time to sift through your wardrobe and get rid of any clothes you no longer use. Whizz around your room looking for items that you don’t need anymore and see how this decluttering process can instantly transform the space.
Take a look at the furniture in your room and see what adds to the overall style and what pulls it down. Remove any bulky furniture that is not needed to create more space. As your bed is the main feature in your bedroom consider if it is doing the space justice. Perhaps it’s finally time to treat yourself to the bed you really deserve. For a clean, sophisticated and chic vibe look for white furniture or furniture with a neutral colour palette that will allow you to add flair and personality to the other areas of the room. Keeping your furniture neutral will mean that you can then have much more fun and creative flexibility when focusing in on the details of your boudoir.
Now Focus on the Detail
So now that you have your bedrooms looking spick and span now is the time to really hone in on the finer details. This is the really fun part as it’s always the little details that bring any room to life. Look at adding fresh flowers and plants to breathe new life into the room. Personalise with photos and little sentimental items that remind you of good times and put your style fingerprint on it with art that reflects your individual style and personality.
Look at the textiles in your room and replace worn out rugs with new, colourful, bouncy textures that feel soft and comforting between your toes. Add warm, cosy throws and cushions to your bed to add interesting layers and a unique dynamic to your inviting sleeping space.
Create Mood and Atmosphere
Lighting is the top way that you can add a soothing atmosphere to your bedroom. Using lamps and accent lighting will ensure that you don’t have to endure any more harsh lighting after a long day at the office. Avoiding overhead lighting and focusing solely on pretty lamps will mean your boudoir looks inviting and relaxing.
Candles are an instant way to add a romantic dreaminess to your bedroom. Using candles not only adds a calming, soothing ambience but will also fill your sleeping parlour with a beautiful scent for you to enjoy whilst getting ready for bed. Some scents such as lavender are actually scientifically proven to help you nod off and improve your quality of sleep.
With our day’s beginning and ending in our bedrooms this is an essential space to invest time and creativity in order to make them feel as special, luxurious and relaxing as we deserve.
