Make your bedroom a special place to relax and unwind after a long day at work, remembering the finishing touches that turn an ordinary bedroom into an elegant and unique sanctuary. Here we share our top tips for a carefree, relaxed and intimate bedroom.
Keep it simple Neutrals often work best in a bedroom but you could introduce pops of your favourite colours within the soft furnishings in your room, such as scatters on the bed, artwork or a beautiful area rug to add a cosy touch to your space. Declutter Get rid of all the mess in your bedroom. Tone things down and instantly creating a calming atmosphere. Pack away seasonal items that you are not using such as heaters and extra blankets in the summer months. You may want to free up space in your wardrobe and store away your winter clothing until the weather changes. A decluttered bedroom will enhance a calming, restful atmosphere which is conducive to quality sleep and peace! Streamlined sophistication Less is more is the trend that is capturing everyone’s attention at present. Go for a minimalist look with a crisp white interior and minimal decorations. The cool, calming palette is perfect to promote a restful ambiance and one that oozes elegance in the bedroom. We love the simple lines, and streamlined look of the below bedroom, complete with white interior walls, floors, ceilings and even bedding! Add character Make your bedroom your own with beautiful finishes such as this gorgeous wooden floor laid in a herringbone pattern (below). The warmth of the wooden tones is ideal for a bedroom. We also love the striking ceiling moulds and ornate cornices that add character in the space. If the architecture of your bedroom does not boast such intricate detailing, then add characterful furniture to do the trick – think a vintage wooden dresser or bed with beautiful lace bedding and ornate drapes for depth. Quality linen – ALWAYS! When it comes to your bed, always invest in quality linen. You spend up to 1/3 of your life in bed, so ensure that you have an elegant and restful place to lay your head at night. Crisp white linen is always timeless. Check the thread count and invest in breathable fabrics that are perfect for the season. Looking for furniture. Stop were the industry does www.sadecor.co.za
