Compared to the other rooms in our house, the bedroom is where we clock the most hours and the place we go to relax—and yet it’s the last place we bother to decorate or organize. In fact, by the end of a busy week, it can feel more like a landmine and less like the sanctuary it should be. So, we’re highlighting 10 ways to revitalize your bedroom and turn it into the serene hideaway you’ll be so excited to retreat to.
MAKE IS HOTEL-WORTHY
The days of tacky, dated wallpaper are long gone. Choose a stylish option like a dark grasscloth print. Pair it with an upholstered bed frame for a hotel suite-vibe.
REACH NEW HEIGHTS
This home is proof that a simple change of furniture can make a big impact on your home design. An extra tall upholstered headboard can act as a statement piece in an otherwise toned-down room and can lend a tailored yet comfortable feel.
ADD A HINT OF COLOUR
Let your new colourful accents and paintings do all the talking by keeping everything else in your room plain and simple.
EMBRACE MOODY FLORALS
Experiment with one of this season’s hottest looks–moody floral wallcoverings. Stick to one accent wall and keep other elements simple and neutral for a paired-back take on the trend.
USE LUXE TEXTURES
Incorporate more texture into your room with a velvet bed frame in a warm, soothing hue. The texture feels inviting and luxe while the sage green colour is an unexpected touch.
What’s the key to designing a pleasing room? Skillful layering. Mix textures to add interest and up the cozy factor in a space.
CREATE AN OPTICAL ILLUSION
Short on space? Cover an entire wall with fabric and brass studs to create the illusion of an oversized headboard without sacrificing square footage.
ADD YOUR OWN PERSONALITY
Your room, your personal touches. Take pointers from Jillian Harris’s pretty bedroom. Soft pink, grey and cream offer a feminine feel and a healthy mix of supple textures make it feel cozy.
ADD CALMING ELEMENTS
A muted colour palette and understated furniture can make a bedroom feel serene and ambient. Soothing wallpaper is the perfect finishing touch.
Give your master bedroom the royal treatment with a striking four-poster bed frame. Opt for one with a mixed wood tone finish and simplistic design to keep this style from feeling outdated.
