Your bedroom should be a place that you go to to find solace from the world; a place where you can relax and reset before taking on the world again in the morning. Think of your bedroom as a refuge from the chaos and noise that family and work life can bring. Not sure where to start? Here are my top tips for making your bedroom a beautiful and relaxing oasis.
Make it comfortable
This is an obvious one, but by making your bedroom comfortable, you automatically make it a place where you want to retreat to and chill out. The perfect mattress, some mellani bedsheets, and a range of blankets and textures to snuggle under are all important for creating a comfortable space. Add a touch of class to your room by displaying beautiful photos or a large mirror above your headboard; you spend almost a third of your life in bed, you may as well make it somewhere you want to be!
Clear it out of clutter
We are creatures who accumulate, and sometimes it can be difficult to depart with the memorabilia we have gathered up over the years. However, clean and clear surfaces make for a clean and clear mind, so declutter the sides in your bedroom, put away all the clothes which are dumped on the chair in the corner and tidy up the pile of magazines and books beside the bed, stat.
Learn the art of feng shui
Feng shui is all about harmonization; it’s about making sure your inner self and your environment are all perfectly in-sync with each other, all creating a calming atmosphere. If you can, place your bed on the opposite side of the room and at an angle to the door, as well as trying to keep a window on your right. This will allow you to absorb energy from the outside as you wake up in the morning! Remember to keep work desks out of the bedroom too, so that you don’t associate your place of rest with your place of stress.
Bring plants into your room
There was once a study which found that people worked much better in an office when they were surrounded by fresh flowers or houseplants. If greenery makes you feel better in the workplace, imagine how relaxing they will be in the bedroom! Plants are not only good for decreasing stress but also purify the air around us and make us healthier!
Paint in hues of blue
Some scientists say that the color blue directly affects our autonomic nervous system without us even being conscious of it. Blue plays a big part in reducing stress, slow breathing, and blood pressure, meaning that it is the perfect color to decorate your bedroom in. Color therapists suggest that blue has a calming effect, and can send you into slumber if a room is decorated in it. So, if your bedroom is due for a new coat of paint, why not create a feature wall in blue? Or, if you would rather stick to neutral walls, add some blue accents in the curtains, rug or blankets on the bed.
