Of all the nooks and corners in your home, your bedroom is undoubtedly the one place you look forward to retreating to the most. Other than the kitchen perhaps! A bedroom is a typically very personal space, meant to relax and unwind. Naturally, you want it to be cosy, comfortable and welcoming. As is human nature though, if you feel rather tired of looking at the same setup on a daily basis, then it might be time for a change. But if you also consider yourself a decorating klutz, then you may also need a little push in the right direction. The following tips should help.
Not that you need to try to fit a tree in there, but you can definitely add a breath of fresh air (quite literally), to your bedroom with some well-placed potted plants. In fact, there are specific plants for air purification, which are incredibly good for your health. Aloe Vera, Snake Plant, and the Peace Lily are all a few options you could consider. You can visit a botanist if you want more information on the subject. You will find that you breathe in cleaner air, improving your health all the while as well. Plus, it uplifts and livens up any space so double win.
Give Your Bed a Makeover
When was the last time you bought a new set of sheets and pillowcases? It helps to indulge in some quality bed gear every now and then to elevate both the look and feel of your bedroom. Invest in a few quilt cover sets as well while you are at it. If you are used to playing it safe, why not experiment with different colours and styles? You will be surprised at the combinations that turn out to be quite creative in the end. You can go abstract for instance, opting for interesting patterns and designs that you have never tried before.
This has become a very popular feature with interior designing and adds depth to any space. Accent walls are when you choose one wall in a room and decide to give prominence to it by way of a bold colour and other add-ons. So you could perhaps have it in yellow, purple or blue, and the rest of the walls could be a more neutral shade of white, cream or beige for instance. Which colours you use are entirely dependent on your personal preferences, but that is the general concept of an accent wall. You can also add pictures and wall art to it if you like.
Love them or hate them, you cannot deny that antiques add a certain degree of flair to a room. You need not overdose on them, but if you can get a hold of a few antique looking items, you can place them in different spots all around the bedroom. You will be pleasantly surprised at the impact they make when used properly. You can never have too many antiques, so do not be afraid to go all out and try something new.
