To ensure your bedroom has a restful feel follow our decorating ideas to create a tranquil space to rest your head at night. We spend a third of our lives asleep, so it is important to have somewhere to escape hectic and demanding lives, whether it juggling children, careers — or in many cases both.
Sleep disturbance is a growing problem in our modern, consumer driven society and can have a huge impact on every aspect of our lives leading to physical, mental and emotional ill health. Creating a calm sleep environment can be the first step to creating a more balanced and restful you. One of the first ways to do this is to clear the room of clutter: a tidy home will encourage organised thinking, without the worries of the world keeping you awake at night.
To achieve a restful nights sleep, paint walls a brilliant shade of white and choose cotton white bedlinen. Declutter the bedroom of modern distractions such as a TV, iPad and phone accessorise simply with a book or magazine.
For a shabby-chic vibe, team white walls with floral bedlinen, so you wake up fresh as a daisy after a restful nights sleep. Add white voile curtains or a canopy above the bed for some luxe styling aged-wood furniture will complement the country look perfectly.
Keep furniture and bedlinen white and add large mirrors to reflect the feeling of light and space. Make a feature of original and rustic features such as ceiling beams or a fireplace and accentuate their unfussy beauty by keeping the rest of the décor stark.
Pastel shades are very relaxing. Paint walls a soothing lilac or powder blue and team with fuss-free accessories to keep the look grown-up rather than girly. Choose fresh whites and calming neutral tones in your bedroom for a cool New-England style add a white wooden bed with white-and-blue striped bedlinen for a nautical edge.
