Sometimes the key to giving your home a luxe-looking update isn’t a giant overhaul or a costly renovation but small yet effective additions to improve upon what you already have. And no room is easier to spruce up than the bedroom, since it’s the only space in the house that’s yours and yours alone.
“Sweet dreams are guaranteed when you have a beautiful place to rest your head”
This may seem obvious, but your bed should always be the first thing you see when you walk into your room. The basic formula for styling your bedding: 2 euro pillows, 2 standard pillows, 1-3 accent cushions, and on top of that add a cozy throw or more decorative cushions, if your heart desires.
I absolutely love linen – it’s an amazing way to lift the feel of the bedroom. I like to keep my bedding minimal with light colour (mainly white or grey), then add texture, patterns and colour through cushions and throws.
THE BEDSIDE TABLES:
Bedside tables are perfect for pulling your bedroom look together. They reflect your personal style and serve as a home for your decorative pieces.
When styling your bedside table, look to tall vases and table lamps for height, medium sized candles, opt for a scent that suits the mood you want to convey, and for a little favourite of mine, beautiful body products like @evodia_australia Byron Bay Frangipani Hand and Body Lotion.
When arranging your decorative pieces together, make sure you have placed the taller items at the back and add the next level pieces in front to create a more cohesive look.
Even when all the furniture is in place and every surface is styled, a room can still look visually empty. Spruce up your walls with art/prints.
A room wouldn’t be complete without a few personal touches. A pretty sitting chair to fill some wall space, a bench at the end of the bed, some plants to bring the outdoors in or my favourite Evodia products like the nourishing body sprays sitting pretty on my bedside. We all have a few extras that can contribute to our room in style and sentiment.
Out of all the spaces in our home, the master bedroom is definitely my favourite to style.
I feel the happiest/most at home with this one. I’ve learnt to style for myself, and don’t think you have to stick to just one style of decorating. How uninspiring would it be if we all had the same tastes and ideas and decorated the same way? To me, that’s what makes it fun—watching how others design a space and adjust it to suit their own needs to create something special just for them. I respect anyone who can do that.
