How to make your bedroom a sleep sanctuary

Category: home

After a long day, there is no better feeling than crawling into the warm embrace of a freshly-made bed. Being able to snuggle under the covers, toes finally toasty and warm, always feels like the best reward.  

But the chaos of our daily lives can sometimes make it hard to keep things in order. Besides the obvious beauty it brings, a stylish and tidy space is just what we need for our mood and mindset. Your room should be a relaxing retreat from the rest of the world – clutter-free, filled with beautiful bits and pieces, and a space that feels like home.

Here’s how to create an inviting escape that is bound to make getting up in the morning just that little bit harder:

Treat your bed frame like a blank canvas. Opt for a neutral base, (for us, it’s hard to go past a crisp, white, hotel-style sheet), and then pick up your paintbrush!

Use colour carefully. Bring the beach home with you and add a dash of cool Mediterranean blue to your bedspread with some purposefully-placed pillows. Experiment with patterns and shades and bring your bedroom to life with these super stylish (not to mention soft) pieces.

Clear your bedside table of its usual chaos and keep it simple with nothing more than a lamp and a plant. If you’re feeling creative, why not add a second succulent? A little bit of greenery will do wonders for the overall ambience.

Keep it consistent with a matching mat, ottoman and throw, and be prepared to bask in the glory of your new little slice of heaven.
