What better place to bring a little luxury than your boudoir? Our bedroom is likely to be the room where we spend the most time. So it is deserving of some elegance and splendor.
- The Bed
Getting enough sleep each night is a problem that many people face over the course of their lives. And it’s not just the amount of sleep that it is important. The quality of sleep is important too. Bear this in mind when decorating your bedroom.
If you’re working to a budget, your bed is not the place to cut back. Give yourself the luxury of a good night’s sleep and find a bed and mattress to suit your needs. Look for options like the Casper mattress which are made from memory foam and will support your body as you sleep.
Bedding will also feature in your luxe theme. When choosing sheets, look for fabric with a good thread count. Egyptian cotton is the best. It is smooth and comfortable but also durable. When it comes to pillows, find shapes to suit your sleep position.
- The Headboard
Your headboard is likely to be the main focal point in your bedroom and should be treated accordingly. It is a great place to bring some elegance and style. Comfort is important. With a little careful consideration, you can marry comfort and style quite easily. Look for fabrics that exude luxury styles, such as silks and velvets. Lights can be used to bring a little drama.
When it comes to your color palette, there are no hard and fast rules. Some colors may spring to mind when you think about luxury. For example, crimson, purple, etc. But you could achieve a similar feel
using pure white. The trick is in how the look is executed and how everything comes together.
If you have the space in your room, consider adding a sofa or armchairs. This will provide you with added comfort. Keep a sumptuous throw close to hand for chilly evenings. If space in an issue, some furniture provides additional storage space.
In addition to your bedside lamps, consider a statement overhead light. Opt for a hanging light fixture or even a chandelier. If budget doesn’t permit, then focus on the light shade.
Bedrooms often accumulate lots of odds and ends. For example, phone cables, jewelry, change, etc. Tidy all of this away and reduce your clutter. Find a home for it in drawers, cupboards, and jewelry boxes. Or, keep it neat and tidy in a tray.
- Keep The Floor Empty
Don’t clutter the floor space with piles of clothes and books. Keep this empty and clear. Clutter and mess do not equate to luxury.
Introduce accessories that are elegant and stylish. For example, beautiful ornaments and gold photo frames. But don’t go overboard. Just add little touches here and here.
- Beautiful Drapes
Your choice of curtains will also add to the overall look and feel. Opt for good quality fabric that fits well and is lined. Ensure that they are beautifully laundered and pressed before handing them.
Capture the mood of your favourite boutique hotels with a room fragrance. Use linen sprays for your bedding.
There are lots of ways you can create a bedroom with a luxury feel. Start with the basics and then add little touches. But don’t overdo it. Think simple and stylish.
