Why is it that we always put our personal spaces last? Living rooms, kitchens, powder rooms are spaces that are commonly used for hosting guests get all of our time and attention; however, it is so important to feel at ease and happy with the spaces that our family and friends generally don’t see… like our bedroom.
Treating yourself to a few luxuries, and putting some thought into the décor of your bedroom will make you want to retreat at the end of the evening, help you relax and feel more rested.
Investing in linens is the first, most important step. Breathability, thread count, and weight can quite literally help you have a more restful sleep. Then of course the style of your linens will set the tone of the room. Click here for a guide.
Take 3 minutes every morning to make your bed and you wont regret it!
2. Colour Palette
If there is one place to take the psychology of colour seriously, it is in the bedroom. Neutrals, colour with greyed undertones, light and airy or deep, warm and sexy… what mood do you want to go to bed to?

Whether it’s an upholstered headboard, an antique dresser, four post canopy bed, or nightstands with storage… choosing furniture that speaks to you, as well as meeting your needs functionally will be sure to give you sweet dreams.
If there is anywhere that lighting holds high importance, it’s in the bedroom. Having overhead lights on a dimmer lets you control the overall ambiance, however, bedside lamps or sconces are ideal for late night reading and allow you to turn the lights off without getting up to flip the switch.
A center chandelier or statement pendant centred in the room will amp up the style and add a touch of romance as well.

We don’t all have the space for this luxury, but having the ability to put a chair in a corner of the bedroom to sit and read or have a Saturday morning coffee, really pulls the bedroom together and will make you feel as if you are waking up in a hotel room.
However, you must resist the urge to use the chair as a resting place for laundry and discarded-outfits from last night’s party! The key to bedroom bliss is to keep things neat so that when you retire to bed at the end of the night you do not feel the stress of more cleanup being added to your to-do list!
Sweet Dreams and Happy Decorating!
