Tip 1 – Linen Linen
One of the most important components of your bedroom. Linen can impact heavily on the style of your bedroom. A great way to create a warm and inviting vibe in your bedroom is by layering your bed linen with pillows, cushions and coverlets or throws.
Tip 2 – Lighting
Lighting can impact the atmosphere of your bedroom! Whether it be task lighting, decorative lighting, or both. If you love to read in bed, make sure your bedside lamps or pendants are bright enough for you! A great way to control the lighting in your bedroom is with a dimmer switch where you can alter the amount of light your bulb gives off depending on your mood or what you are doing at that time!
Tip 3 – Texture
By playing with texture in your bedroom you can create a cozy appearance. It is also appealing to the eye and adds different elements into your space. You can add texture in many ways such as layering your bed linen, different wall finishes like paint, wallpaper, bricks, paneling, etc. and adding art to your walls and rugs to your floors!
Tip 4 – Colour and hue
The colours and hues that you feature in your bedroom can change a mood or atmosphere immediately. The colours and hues that you use in your space will heavily rely on what style or atmosphere you are wanting to achieve. For example, light colours like whites and pastels will create a fresh and vibrant atmosphere. Darker colours like charcoals and navy blues will create mood and mystery in your space. Bright colours like yellows, reds and lime green are edgy and exciting.
Tip 5 – Nature
Bring some life into your bedroom by adding an element of nature! This could be as small as adding a vase of flowers or a succulent to your bedside table, to a pot plant or hanging plant in the corner, or being a little more creative like featuring a piece of art of a landscape. You can also add timber to your bedroom to add an element of nature and a natural texture if you don’t have a green thumb!
Tip 6 – Things you love
I love this tip because it is absolutely unique for everyone! Your bedroom is your space, a retreat from the rest of your home. So why not try to incorporate an element in your space that relates to something you love? An example of this is if you love reading, a bookshelf with an amazing armchair and lamp could be something you include into your bedroom design. If you love music, you could create a feature wall of vinyls, or a feature wall full of photos of memories shared with loved ones. No matter what it is that you love, don’t be afraid to be unique, creative and think outside the box!
Tip 7 – Vignettes
Vignettes are a display of objects that are appealing to the eye and tell a story. A great way to create a vignette is with an object that is special to you, some greenery, a book or magazine and a source of lighting like a lamp or candle. Vignettes should have lots of texture! Vignettes are beautiful elements to add to a side table, ottoman, window sill or shelf in your bedroom!
Tip 8 – Bedheads
Bedheads, combined with bed linen are the most important elements of your bedroom. Once again, your bedhead impacts the style of your bedroom. Make a statement with an amazing bedhead and create a great feature! It can be the hero piece of any bedroom.
Tip 9 – Wall treatments
This is fun! The days are gone of a feature wall in a different colour paint. Its time to get creative! You can do so many inspiring things to your walls to make your bedroom a unique space! Some of those wall treatment features could be paneling, timber, bricks, render, wall murals, wallpaper, fabric, and other paint treatments.
Tip 10 – View from your bed
Your bedroom is your retreat. When you wake up each morning it would be great to open your eyes and see something amazing in front of you right? Lets make that happen! If possible, position your bed opposite a window, or place an amazing piece of art on the wall!
