Wonderful.... Beauty Sleep!

Don't you just love when you walk into a room and get that feeling, I wanna sleep here!

My next favourite place in the house has got to be the bedroom! This space, is your inner sanctum, where you can just be you, your space, your zone to chill and totally be you.
If you think about it, it's the one room that you spend the longest stretch of time in at once (sleeping), so why not make it scrumptious and deliciously comfortable. Getting a good night's sleep can be difficult if your bedroom isn't designed for, well, sleep! So with this post I would again like to show or should I say highlight and give you suggestions as to how you can improve your bedrooms interior from dull to Fabulous!

1.      Neutral paint colours in medium values are your best choice for creating a room that lulls you to sleep. If you usually lean toward bold colours, use your living areas to showcase the brightest hues and choose toned-down versions of your favourites for accents in the bedroom.

2. Another key to restfulness is a simple furniture layout, with the bed placed alongside a window, not directly beside it. This arrangement allows you to enjoy the view, but also be able to turn away from it if natural light is too bright.

3. Keep the bedroom spacious, regardless of the actual room size. Don't fill out the space wit unnecessary accessories and don't let the room become overly decorated with fussy windows treatments or a plethora of busy patterns.

4. Tap into your sense of touch when choosing fabrics and bedding. Go for soft, plush and luxurious textures like high Cotton count sheets, leather and silks to create a formal, yet comfortable look. Remember high tread count sheets are a most for a hotel-like sleeping experience.

5.  For a finishing touch, add splashes of colour using accessories i.e. cushions/vases/chunky picture frames, but remember to not overdo it as it still has to be restful. Keep it subtle but bold enough just to make the room pop. This can also help to add an element of luxury to the room.

So, with these basic tips I've given you, why don’t you try and apply them to your room(s) too. Remember, if in doubt keep it simple as it will always work best. I believe strongly that our homes should reflect us and be places where we look forward to returning to at the end of a hard day. So I therefore challenge you to not just live under a roof but build your castle, from inside out...
I hope you have enjoyed this post and please remember to leave your comments on what you thought and any questions I’ll be more that happy to answer. If you also have a topic you would like me to post on, let me know. Till the next post.
