Adding ‘Chic’ To Your Bedroom
The bedroom is one of the most private spaces in the home and in my books, requires special ‘décor’ attention from time to time.
Adding some luxury with sprinkles of comfort and practicality can go a long way towards making your bedroom that special ‘go to’ place.
Let’s face it, we all want a comfortable place to just chill after a stressful day…or to enjoy the positive vibes while sleeping-in whenever we can.
By making some simple changes and introducing some luxe favorites, such as sequined pillows, faux fur throws, unique lighting or bling hardware, your bedroom can look amazing!
Here are some pointers…
Your statement piece is usually your bed and it is likely to be the largest piece of furniture in your bedroom.
If you don’t want to replace your bed, invest in an impressive headboard that has a unique shape or bold color.
By placing a mirror above each nightstand, you’ve added more glamor.
And speaking of that, glam lamps on your nightstands will beautifully frame your bed.
Add elegance by painting or wallpapering a feature wall.
Choose your favorite design and this part of your bedroom will steal the show!
You could also incorporate wall art, or my favorite is a standout mirror!
Space permitting, a chaise lounge or cozy chair to relax in can elevate the comfort factor. But remember not to clutter your bedroom with too many pieces of furniture.
As lighting is so important from a practicality and aesthetics perspective – replace a dull light fixture and shed royal treatment with a chandelier or unique pendants.
Finally, glam up your windows with luxe velvet or silk drapery.
Out of sight! Store things that you don’t want to be seen.
And as tough as it is, getting rid of items you no longer use is a must!
A cluttered bedroom never looks luxurious, so keep the floor clean and clear of clutter.
Put away items that you don’t need every day. Little storage boxes for jewelry and accessories look much better than your loved items being displayed all over your room.
Don’t forget the simple touches such as upgrading your hardware with reflective or bold materials or replacing your lampshades to incorporate a new style.
Bring in new linen and complement your colors with throw pillows. The more the merrier!
If you have neutral or light colors on your bed, mix the pillow designs and textures to add some jazz.
Finally, bring in a breath of fresh air!
Frequently airing your bedroom is necessary for the flow of fresh air.
It goes without saying that cleaning up to remove dust and dander is essential to a healthy environment.
And to go with your flow and mood – use scented candles, flowers or room sprays to create the ambiance you want.
My votes go to lavender for calm & jasmine to revitalize energy!
So, remember to start by taking stock of what you really need to keep, what can be stored, trashed or replaced.
Yes, it can be challenging to de-clutter. But given the choice of feeling tired and overcrowded vs feeling relaxed and happy, I think it’s a no brainer!
Also, having things around you that promote happiness creates a healthy mind space.
This includes music, precious photos or your favorite chair just to name a few.
I see blending the right décor, bedroom essentials and colors with ‘happy’ items as putting pieces of a jigsaw puzzle together.
Once it’s all in sync and I feel relaxed when I walk into a bedroom…it’s a game changer for me!
