What Houzz contributors are saying:
6. Cure your laundry headacheWith an aspirin, what else? Pre-soak your dirty whites in hot water tempered with five aspirin tablets. The solution is an effective stain magnet and can leave you with super-white sparklers.
2. Get rid of the extra furnitureAccept it. The main piece of furniture in your bedroom is your bed. When you come back from a long day, all you want to do is get into that clean, comfy bed and turn on your TV, snuggle in and read your book, or just plain crash. The rest of the space is often not used at all. Give a thought to the old chest or the side tables or maybe the sofa seats you have kept squeezed into that room. Do you use them? You probably bought something because it completed the decor you envisioned for your room – now it’s just become a dumping surface for clutter, taking up precious space. Get rid of it!
Make comfort a priorityWe spend about a third of our lives in the bedroom so it’s important to invest in making it as comfortable a place as possible, even if it costs a little extra. Remember, when decorating your slumber sanctuary, focus on quality rather than quantity. Avoid using too many fussy details like beading and sequins, or too scratchy bedding materials. When picking out your bed linen, ensure that whatever you choose is delightfully touchable – think crisp cotton sheets and firm or fluffy pillows.Tip: Given that hotel rooms are so inviting, steal some design tips from them. Opt for a rug on the floor or a soft cashmere throw and comforter to create that boutique hotel experience.How to Have a Five Star Bedroom
Focus on texture When your colour scheme consists of a single colour, it’s important to visually stimulate with textures. Play around with soft furnishings like rugs, cushions, pillows and curtains in a variety of finishes – rough or smooth, sheer or thick, shimmering or matte – to add depth to the space. Tip: You don’t have to stick to one shade of white. Pick creamier or deeper tones to create a perfectly intimate space. The touch of green in this bedroom really brings out the airiness of the room, while keeping things indulgent and gorgeous.
Sink into fluffy white bed linen Recreate that comfy hotel bed experience with fluffy, white sheets. Bed linen with at least a 300 thread count should do the trick. And if you want to really splurge, launder your sheets once in a way to get those crisp whites. Now add some vibrant throw pillows to the mix and retire for the night in style.
