Decorating your bedroom is usually the last thing on your home improvement list. Your living room, kitchen and guest bath typically get special attention because people will see them, but what about the bedroom? That’s where you kick your shoes off and dive under the covers for a blissful eight hours of rest. Sprucing it up may be a lower priority since company rarely set eyes on it, but a peaceful bedroom can be a sanctuary from the chaos of daily life.
Use these easy tips to make every night a vacation by creating a hotel-style boudoir.
It’s no secret that the color blue is a powerful calming agent. Swathe all four walls in your favorite shade or add blue-toned curtains, throw pillows or bedding to bring some serenity to your sleeping quarters.
The wall behind your headboard is the perfect spot to add some detail. Create drama by painting it a contrasting color or adding wallpaper. If the thought of hanging wallpaper makes you nervous, wall stencils are an easy and inexpensive alternative. Simply tape the stencil to the wall, roll on paint and repeat until the whole area is covered. Voila – instant glamour!
Being too hot or too cold can keep the Sandman at bay. Layer your bedding to enjoy a high-class, hotel-style bed and adapt to the weather to get better sleep! Use a sheet, a light blanket and a duvet in the winter months, then put away the heaviest layer when temperatures rise. Add some throw pillows in contrasting and coordinating colors to complete the look.
It’s that simple - your hotel hideaway is only a few small updates away! For more decorating tips and trends, check out David Weekley Homes on Pinterest.
