These days we lead such busy lives that we rarely have time to spend in our bedrooms. Most of us simply fall into bed and switch off the lights after an exhausting day! That doesn’t mean you should leave the decor of your bedroom to become an afterthought. In fact, it is thought that a bedroom that is carefully planned and decorated could even aid good sleep. If you’re looking to add something extra to your bedroom, then try some of these beautiful ideas for a new look:
If you love the beauty and the scent of flowers and blooms, then add a vase or two to the bedroom. Lavender, in particular, can aid sleep. You can buy fresh lavender almost all year round these days. The colour is particularly attractive and can easily be incorporated into your theme or colour palette. Soft lavenders and powder pinks are ideal for this room.
Don’t forget, you can also include floral wallpapers or bedding to your bedroom. Petite patterns like this have come back to popularity, so there are plenty in the stores to choose from. Some window blinds feature this type of pattern too. Prints or sketches of flowers in light pastels or pencil could become perfect wall art material for your bedroom as well.
You can choose elegant metal bed frames that offer a more feminine and pretty look for the bedroom. An antique brass finish can be very attractive. Some Serene Furnishings beds have an elegant ivory finish for a softer look in the room. This can be ideal if your bedding is in ivory, or you have pale curtains in the room. It can also match any rugs that you might be using. Bedside cabinets can also be painted the same shade if you have a wooden cabinet to upcycle.
Dressing tables are essential. If you continue the ivory or metal theme here, you will find you have plenty of choices. The table and the table-top mirrors should match. You can place a vase of flowers here, and the colour from them will be reflected in the mirror. Why not add a delicate lace or crochet topper? A couple of ornaments or trinkets will finish this off beautifully.
Stripping your floors bare and painting them can open up a lot of choices in the bedroom. You can use a thin lacquer or varnish to protect and highlight the grain of the wood. Or you can paint them ivory, duck egg blue, or a soft lavender colour. Add a couple of rugs for a soft finish. Why not paint the skirting boards in a feminine colour too? If you have floor-standing radiators, it might be worth painting these the same colour too.
Bedrooms can be elegant, feminine and beautiful. They can be painted and furnished in any colour you like to suit your mood or suit the season. Add a few pillows, cushions and a throw to the bed, and you’ll have a room you’ll love to use. Perhaps you’ll make it to bed a little earlier tonight?
