Your bedroom is your sanctuary and a quiet space for you to rest after a long day, and re-energize for the next one. But occasionally the bedroom can take on a neglected look, making it feel drab. Here are some easy tips to instantly refresh and recharge the energy of your bedroom!
Seasonal fresh flowers bring instant life and color to your bedroom. Cut flowers short and arrange them in a small mercury vase to create a luxurious hotel atmosphere. For an arrangement that lasts longer, consider Forever Orchids – they are a beautiful touch that will instantly transform a room.
Luxurious bed linens are a way to pamper yourself and create visual interest in your bedroom. Change up your linens by season with light colors for spring and summer. January is a good month to invest in new bed linens since many stores will hold white sales with heavy discounts on fine linen. Look for high thread counts or a sateen weave where the weft thread goes over more than one warp thread, creating a luster on the front side of the fabric and a silky feel that drapes gracefully. I prefer using color on duvet colors and accent pillows against a crisp white sheet backdrop.
A draped throw creates and inviting mood and sets the scene for relaxation. Heavy faux fur throws against crisp white linens create a nice juxtaposition and is inviting to curl up under for a nap or to read a book. Lighter throws in linen or alpaca are perfect for an fresh spring or summer look.
Candles are another great way to create a sense of luxury and relaxation in your bedroom. Look for lighter scents like lavender or floral candles so you don't overwhelm the senses. Then grab a book and curl up under a throw to enjoy your latest book.
A quick fix to update a room is to move in a piece that you would normally keep in another room. Take a look around your living room for a piece that would bring a different look to your room - a buddha statue, picture frames or an unusual lamp can change up the look of your bedroom and inspire you to do something new in your living area in place of it.
Ultimately your bedroom should be a place where you can retreat at the end of the day and feel at ease. Surrounding yourself with your favorite things will create the ultimate relaxation spot that we all crave.
