5 Steps to Create a Calm & Relaxing Bedroom
In today's fast-paced world, the desire for a serene bedroom has become more important than ever. We yearn for a peaceful retreat, a haven where we can escape the constant hustle and bustle, and indulge in activities like reading, relaxing, and, of course, sleeping! 😴
As full-time stylists we know the challenges that come with creating a calm and relaxing space. Especially when our bedrooms serve multiple purposes such as a workspace, dressing room, hair salon, or even a children's play area.
Thankfully, there are simple solutions that can infuse a sense of calm and tranquillity into your bedroom, whether it's a multifunctional space or solely dedicated to rest.
Here are five steps from the interior styling team to help you achieve that much-needed calming ambience:
Choose a soothing colour palette: Selecting a calming colour palette is crucial for setting the right mood. Opt for soft, neutral hues like pastel blues, muted green, soothing greys or earthy tones. These colours promote a sense of tranquillity and help create a peaceful atmosphere in the room.
Incorporate Natural Elements: Bring in a touch of colour with fresh flowers, indoor plants or soft greenery. Not only will they invigorate life into your space but indoor plants also act on improving your air quality. Here in the showroom, we utilise air-dried eucalyptus —so that a single bunch can beautify our space for months and even years!
Keep an eye out for bunches of eucalyptus at your local florist or the floral section of your local supermarket.
Soft Mood Lighting: Lighting plays a significant role in setting the mood of a room. Aim for soft, warm lighting rather than harsh, bright white lights. Use bedside lamps or wall sconces with warm-coloured bulbs for a cozy and relaxing ambience. And always consider adding candles for a calming glow!
Use Textures & Fabrics: Soft textures and fabrics can enhance the comfort and coziness of your bedroom. Incorporate plush rugs, cozy blankets, and comfortable pillows to create a relaxing environment. Choose natural fabrics like cotton, linen, or bamboo bedding to enhance the tactile experience.
Incorporate your favourite Artwork: Artwork is important in the bedroom as it allows for personal expression, enhances aesthetics, and contributes to relaxation and emotional well-being. When selecting artwork for your bedroom, consider your personal preferences, the overall style and theme of the room, and the desired emotional atmosphere. Whether it's paintings, prints, photographs, or sculptures, choose pieces that resonate with you and contribute to creating a space that feels welcoming and reflective of your individuality.
Remember, personal preferences and individual tastes play an essential role in creating a calming bedroom look. Experiment with these steps and adjust them according to your own style and needs to achieve the perfect tranquil space for you. 💕
Considering the significant amount of time we spend in our bedrooms and the vital role sleep plays in our well-being, it's worthwhile to invest in creating a space that reflects your preferences and fulfils your needs.
