Bedroom Decorating Ideas To Create A Relaxing Retreat
How to decorate a bedroom to make it into a luxurious retreat. Your ultimate place to feel comfortable, escape the everyday and just relax. Welcome to the bedroom.
Add the Quilt Quotient
The comfort of a quilt is unmistakable. Few items can add instant warmth and an inviting appeal like a quilt. From quaint and homey to stylish and chic, a quilt can serve as a canvas to express your personal style. While there’s the obvious use as a cover for your bed, there are a variety of ways to decorate with this welcoming piece. Try folding a quilt and displaying it as an accent piece at the foot of a bed, at the ready to chase away chills. Throw one over a banister to warm up a hallway, or display it on a wall to set the tone for a room and complement your bedroom’s overall color palette.
Pair Bolds With Neutrals
If your idea of the perfect sanctuary is to add a pop of color, then try marrying tranquil neutral tones of shell, ivory and cream with a bold color that expresses your style. Dramatic reds, luscious greens or effervescent blues all offer a playful color combination. Adding a pop of color can be as simple as tossing a few vibrant pillows on the bed, laying a throw over a chair or hanging a colorful wreath on the wall.
Invite the Unexpected
Sometimes it can take just one unexpected addition to a room to truly define it. Imagine the possibilities: a glamorous crystal fleur chandelier, a set of rustic arched wall gates for your headboard, a piece of whimsical wall art, a wood sign that provides words of wisdom. Seek out those kinds of individual home accents that can make your bedroom uniquely your own.
Embrace the Luxurious
Of all the rooms in your home, the bedroom is the one place where it makes the most sense to indulge a little bit. After all, you spend so much of your time there! Combine luxurious textures and sumptuous fabrics to create a pampered atmosphere. Just one touch and you’ll instantly relax. Little details make all the difference; think: pin-tucked pleats, crocheted accents and matelassé.
Take a Seat
It’s easy to think that a bedroom is all about the bed. But, don’t ignore the opportunity to create inviting seating areas within your bedroom suite. A plush chair and ottoman accented a soft, chunky knit throw makes an ideal place to curl up with a good book, long before bedtime calls. Add ambiance with a floor lamp that can shed light just where you need it and lets others rest in other areas of the room.
