Making our bedrooms as gorgeous as we deserve is not always the easiest thing to do. It can be really tricky to look around the room, you spend so many hours in, and know how to whip it up into shape so that it’s a space you can be truly proud of.
Check out these simple tricks on how to add a touch of style and sophistication to your boudoir, one detail at a time.
Start with your bed
Your bed is the focal point in your bed and as it’s the first thing you see as you walk into your room you need to ensure it looks fabulous and inviting. Investing in top quality bed sheets is the best place to start when whipping your bedroom up into shape. Do as the hoteliers do and purchase top quality sheets and linen, who offer high thread count sheets that will make you feel like you’re staying in a top boutique hotel, every night.
Cushions are also really important in the overall look and feel of your bedroom and creating interesting pillow combinations will ensure your bed looks comforting and cosy. The general rule of thumb when thinking of bed cushions is two large backrest pillows with two sleeping pillow and if you really want to go for it, one or two other bolder feature pillows.
A pretty soft throw or cotton blankets creating a runner at the end of your bed is also a really simple way to add a little glamour and sophistication to your bed. Look at soft, warm and sumptuous materials that will bring out the other colours in your bedroom.
Your bedside table should reflect all the little things you like to wind down your day with. A pretty pot of hand cream, a soothing lamp and your favourite book should all be right at hand when you enjoy time the final moments of your day. Make sure your bedside table is coordinated with the overall style of your room and even consider buying weekly fresh flowers to bring a fresh and floral fragrance to your boudoir.
Make sure you are making the most out of the windows in your bedroom. Don’t block them out with heavy blinds, instead think of how you can frame them with rich drapes and light Persian blinds. Long curtains that go all the way down to the floor add instant sophistication to any bedroom so shop around a little for the colours, materials and patterns that would work best for your sleeping space.
Any room can look a little bear and empty when there’s nothing on the walls so think about any interesting artwork that you can hang on your bedroom walls that will pull together the general colour scheme and overall style of this space. Whether you are more into 2D paintings or solid sculptural pieces that will bring an extra dimension to your room, think about any artwork that would really bring your boudoir to life and will add a touch of class to your bedroom walls.
