I’ve decided it’s about time we finish decorating our home so that we can relax, entertain and generally enjoy being in it more. I’m going to start with our bedroom as it’s such an important room in the house for me. It’s where I start my day, often on my laptop (I know it’s naughty but it suits me), it’s a warm room that is often flooded with light early on. It’s also the tidiest room in the house which means no distractions until my cat comes to tell me she’s hungry or my stomach tells me I am.
For me, a bedroom should feel relaxed and comfortable, a place in which you can unwind in the evening and wake in the morning feeling revived. What can make us feel these things is different for everyone. Personally, I love a calming minimalist bedroom, with clean lines and neutral tones. I find busyness and clutter overwhelming, I’m an observant details-oriented person so I pick up on everything in a room. A simple space helps keep my mind still and allows me to feelinspired in the morning, a time in the day when we are all naturally more creative. Getting to understand your wants and needs from a space can make it a whole lot easier to decorate. I don’t use the room much during the rest of the day, except to pop up in the early evening to do some yoga. I’ll dim the lights and light candles before I start. And then return much later in the evening for bed, often reading before I drop off.
On my list are grey and white linen sheets, striped pillowcases, simple mood lighting for reading and relaxing, some great black and white or neutral coloured prints for the walls, textural cushions and quilts for the bed, warming wooden accents, and a Moroccan Beldi deep wool rug. An incredible armchair to curl up in and read my magazines would be a bonus.
I’m using Pinterest for a lot of my inspiration for this project, I have quite a few interior design boards. If you’re looking for similar inspiration take a look here.
