HOW TO CREATE A PEACEFUL BEDROOM

Getting to sleep at night can be an uphill battle. With so much going on in our lives, switching off before bed time can be a challenge in itself. So what can you do? Read on for our top tips!

DECLUTTER

              The more ‘things’ you have in your bedroom, the less peaceful it is likely to be. Removing the clutter around you will help remove the clutter in your mind. This doesn’t mean removing all traces of personality, just making sure that every element has it’s place, leaving your mind calm and your space serene.

PAINT YOUR WALLS IN LIGHT AND NATURAL COLOURS

              Light colours tend to be more calming, so a quick way to make your bedroom feel spacious and peaceful is to go for natural colours that reflect light. Think all shades of white, beige, light grey or mushroom. Make sure your furniture is sympathetic to the colour scheme and don’t clash. Remember in order to keep you bedroom calm, everything should flow seamlessly together.

DIFFUSE OILS

Scent is one of the most important senses when to comes to relaxing. So if you worry about candles, why not try a diffuser. They give off a gentle scent over a long period of time, adding a wonderful ambience to your room, helping to keep you calm and relaxed. And they come in a huge variety of scents, so you’ll never run out of choices!

DISPLAY CALM ART WORK

Our senses are designed to interact with our surroundings, so much like scent, what we see is crucial when it comes to dictating our mood. Hang art that reflects nature for a truly calming effect. Ocean waves, forest scenes and mountain ranges all work well.

ADD TEXTURE

                Adding throws, cushions, pillows and rugs to our bedroom can all help to add a feeling of serenity. If you’ve chosen light wall colours, stick to natural colours and textures for your soft furnishings too. A fake fur throw can feel wonderful, as can velvet cushions, sisal rugs and some waffle pillows. Think sensual and luxurious and before you know it, you won’t be able to stay awake! So there you have it! All you need to help create a calm, relaxed, luxurious bedroom!
