Warm up your Bedroom

Warm up your Bedroom

Your bedroom is your sanctuary, your escape from the hustle and bustle of the everyday world and winter is a time when you retreat more regularly to the warm, friendly surrounds of your “cocoon.”

Your bedroom is your sanctuary, your escape from the hustle and bustle of the everyday world and winter is a time when you retreat more regularly to the warm, friendly surrounds of your “cocoon.”

Bed FrameOne of the biggest fashion trends in bedding at the moment is a fabric headboard and matching base (often with storage built in). These headboards tend to be neutral colours; greys, creams and sand with a slight contour, or wing or button back. The neutral colour allows the bedhead to work on any flooring; be it carpet or floorboards as well as giving greater flexibility to your choice of seasonal bed linen.

Linen and DecorationWinter is a time for thick, fluffy doonas, rich, deep throw rugs, and pillows. Lots of pillows. European pillows, bolster pillows, throw pillows and the pillow you snuggle into each night. Pillows can add a level of opulence to a room, and will continually pull you towards bed.

LightingLighting is an element often forgotten in bedrooms, and winter is when you will want to ensure that your lamps are fitted with warm white globes. These warm white globes will add depth to the colours of any timbers in your room and will make you feel relaxed before you even start the sleeping process.

ScentsFinally, I can’t stress enough the importance of smell in the sleeping process. The best scents to help you sleep are lavender, chamomile, bergamot, jasmine, rose and sandalwood. Whether it be a scented candle burning in your room for two hours before bed, or a small scented pouch you slip into your pillow case, trial a few options to find out what works best for you. Remember, enjoy your bedroom, spend time on it and in it. Bedtime should be one of the most exciting parts of your day. If it’s not, then maybe you could try a couple of the tips above.
