Your bedroom is the second most important room in the house – after the kitchen (which has the fridge in it’s favour), it’s probably where you do most of your enjoyable leisure activities (read: sleeping, binging on Netflix, late-night snacking). So it makes sense that your bedroom ought to be a place where you want to spend time (preferably seven to eight hours a night), whether that’s a calm relaxing retreat, a soft, romantic space or a moody, jewel-toned haven…
Cool and calm
The key to keeping things chill is not going OTT on colours or prints – think a calming palette of soft hues (we love a minty green, dusky blue and peach combo) and keep patterns minimal. Light a candle and chuck some zen tunes on your Spotify playlist to go the whole hog.
Shades of pink, cream and grey in soft textures (silk and linen and cable knits, oh my!) create a modern romantic vibe. Mix in timber, concrete and copper accents to make it feel more grown-up, and less like a 15-year-old’s girly paradise.
This look is all about the clash. Not for the timid decorator, it calls for bold floral prints, bright colour and maybe some fresh green sheets that subtly play into the garden-in-full-bloom look.
If your wardrobe is black, black, black with a little hint of grey to spice things up, you’re gonna want to embrace a similarly monochromatic look in the boudoir. Get a bit creative (you wild thing!) with prints and texture – and maybe a playful pillowcase to bring the understated LOLs.
Emeralds, rubies and sapphires are great additions to your jewellery box, but they can also work wonders in your decor. Rich jewel tones lend a dark, moody sophistication that says ‘I am glamorous, I am decadent and there’s a good chance my middle name is Luxury.’
