5 ways to create a dreamy bedroom…

July 14, 2016

We spend so much time in our bedroom- a place of solace, a place to escape our busy lives. Creating a dreamy bedroom for ourselves, means to create a space where you can go for more than just a good night's sleep. Below, we are sharing with you 5 ways in which to create a dreamy bedroom for yourself at home.

1. Add texture

Texture can add a certain level of sophistication and luxury to your bedroom. Use cushions in different textures and prints such as velvet and linen to easily bring in texture. Finish the look off with a throw at the foot of the bed, such as our Moroccan Throw, complete with tassels which add a dash of personality.

2. Use a muted colour palette

The bedroom is a space for calm, relaxing vibes. Using earthy, pastel tones will leave you feeling peaceful and prepared for a good night's sleep. Couple- friendly, neutrals, whites and creams with a hero colour thrown in for good measure, you can not go wrong.

3. Decorate with greenery

To us, adding plants to an indoor space gives it an instant lift. Greenery breathes new life into any interior space, so why not bring it into the bedroom too? Do your research and work out what plants are best based on how much natural light finds it's way into your bedroom, and have fun with potting and decorating with greenery.

4. Add something unique and eye catching

Whether it is a one-of-a-kind basket, a trinket from your travels or a beautiful insect net (pictured below), including a piece of your story in your bedroom is a great way to have your personality reflected in your surroundings. Don't be afraid to express yourself in your spaces, it will make them all the more alluring.

 5. Have fun with lighting

We are obsessed with lighting- pendants, wall sconces, lamps- you name it! Ditch the overhead down lights and get romantic with moody lighting, if you are renting, you can try candles and lamps.
