Favourites 84

If there’s one room in your home that demands immediate love and attention, it’s your bedroom. So much more than just a sleeping zone, a bedroom is the place you begin and end each day, so it should be styled to the max with elegant accessories, quirky accents and soft, luxe linens, to create a relaxing, soothing space to de-stress and unwind in.

But you don’t have to spend a fortune on over-the-top expensive overhauls; there are a few clever tricks you can try that will transform the humblest of bedroom spaces into the most extravagant of boudoirs.

From furry textures to luxurious bed linens, here’s how to create a bedroom sanctuary you’ll never want to leave.

Fur accents

Embrace a stylish, Scandi look and fill your bedroom with squishy furs for an instant hit of glamour. Super snug and cosy, a fur throw or rug will add instant warmth to a space - perfect to curl up under on those cold winter nights. Chalet chic and full of rustic charm, a fur is the accessory a winter bedroom should never be without.

Give your bed head space

Such a simple tweak, but a headboard makes all the difference when it comes to bed styling. With the right frame, you can instantly transform a plain bed into a stunning design feature. Soft, quilted boards will give an added sense of cosiness and elegance and looks super stylish paired with soft white linens.

Layer up

Layers of fabrics and textures create space and dimension, so don’t be afraid to build up linens and pillows, in different patterns, on the bed or on surrounding stools and chairs.



Mix textures

Make your bedroom feel super snug with lots of lovely mixed textures. Add heaps of squishy, tactile fabrics like softly woven wool, velvet, mohair and sheepskins. Textiles that make you want to hunker down and relax. - this is very similar to the one above - you could merge them in to one, especially as the cushion one which follows make similar points.




Beautify your bedside table

Don’t use your bedside table as a dumping ground, instead utilise its space to add over-sized table lamps, quirky picture frames and soothing candles. Add a luxe touch with a fresh flower display.

Throw a scattering of cushions

If you’re afraid to experiment with colour and pattern, cushions are where you can really let your creative side run free. Scatter fluffy cushions in different patterns, sizes, colours and shapes onto your bed, and build up until you run out of bed space. Cushions are essential when it comes to creating a serene, cosy sanctuary.

Three colour rule

You don’t want your bedroom to look too busy, after all it is a relaxing haven you’re trying to create. To keep it fresh and simple, stick to three main colours and work around your decided themes. That way you won’t be in danger of your room looking too small and cluttered. Three block colours are easy to play around with, and you have the choice of incorporating different textures and finishes to add a different dimension.
