A new year. A fresh start. It’s the right time to freshen up your bedroom space. Here are our 6 tips for creating a relaxing bedroom…
- Lighten up your space with some fresh bed linen
You know what they say, “Happiness is fresh bed linen.” Is there anything better than climbing into bed at the end of a long day? With the important role of helping you wake each morning rested and rejuvenated, your bed is arguably the most vital piece of furniture in your home. Make it the focal point of the space with some beautiful soft linen, cushions and throws.
Featuring beautiful mandalas in blues and teals on a crisp white background, our latest exclusive quilt cover design Mandala Island will perfectly lighten up the space and create a relaxing, summer vibe. Made from 100% cotton with a 180 thread count, our Mandala Island Quilt Cover feels as good as it looks! Team it up with some beautiful cushions, throws and great quality sheets, like our Seafoam Sheet Set, and you are well on your way to not just a beautiful bedroom but a great night’s sleep too.
- Keep lighting soft
Soft lighting is essential when creating a relaxing atmosphere. A table lamp on your bedside that gives a gentle glow, like our Samara Lamp, will set the tone for a relaxed evening space. Make the most of natural light during the day with soft and sheer window treatments.
- Aim for a calming colour palette
Choose cool hues rather than warm to create a calm space. Blues, greens and greys will calm the mind and promote relaxation. Draw inspiration from your bed linen or an artwork when choosing accessories to keep your colour palette simple.
- Keep accessories simple
Avoid clutter. Accessorise with pieces that make you feel happy and relaxed. Candles, photographs and collected pieces like shells and coral may remind you of past holidays or special moments and evoke relaxation.
- Keep a Journal and Pen in your bedside
Help clear your mind and ward off sleeplessness by keeping a journal and pen on your bedside. Use your journal to reflect on your day or simply to note down any nagging thoughts or reminders. It will end your day on a positive note and prepare your mind for a restful sleep.
- Avoid using technology
Avoid using television or computers in the bedroom and turn off your phone. Any emails, calls and text messages can wait until tomorrow. Allow yourself time to switch off your mind from work and daily life. Use the time to relax, write in your journal, enjoy a cup of herbal tea or unwind with a good book.
