Our bedroom is the space we begin and end each day. It’s the space we wake-up to and scroll the morning news (and/or Instagram), lazily drink our weekend coffees, read our favourite books and above all, rest – only to do it all over again the next day. With that, it’s important to make it a place we love being in. To help, we’ve created a list of tips for selecting the right pieces, while maintaining a much-needed personal touch!
Choose the right bed
Your bed is one place you spend a considerable amount of time every day, so make sure it’s comfortable.
Upholstered vs. Wood
Things to consider: do you like sitting up and reading in bed? Could your bedroom benefit from some sound absorption (think concrete floors and vaulted ceilings) if so, consider an upholstered bed, like our Bento, B2C, Saga or Winston Beds. If the look of a wood frame better complements your needs and space, try our Marcel, Darcy, or Reclaimed Teak Beds.
Make it cozy
Splurge on quality bedding. Egyptian Cotton Sheets are much more luxurious and last through more washes. Feel like you’re at a fancy hotel every time you hit the sheets. Add a throw to the end of your bed to create a casual and inviting feel (this only works when it’s made ;)). We like the Chester and Ollie Throws.
Don’t skimp on storage!
It’s easy to let things pile up in your bedroom – there’s nothing worse than coming home to a room littered with outfit options. Invest in some functional and beautiful storage pieces like our Marcel Double Dresser, Trundle Baskets for extra blankets, and sweaters and the Station Magazine Rack for books and magazines.
Take a seat
If you have the room use it. Bring a soft upholstered chair into your room for reading. To get the best sleep you should reserve your bed for what it’s meant for.
Try the Chiara Chair, which is customizable in 130+ fabrics and leathers. Introduce some light for nighttime reading. We can’t get enough of Herman Miller’s Nelson Bubble Lamp Wall Sconces.
Choose the right rug
Choose a rug that is going to be easy to maintain. We like the Knit Rug for it’s chunky-knit-sweater-like qualities.
Clean the air
Plants are essential to clean and purify the air. The Peggy Side Table is a great way to keep your plants off the ground. Use a simple terracotta pots to not distract from any other patterns, textures or colours in your space. Remember to select plants that work best with the natural lighting conditions in your room.
Make every morning sweeter to wake up to with some fresh, fragrant flowers like lilies or jasmine.
Make it yours
Your bedroom should be a place where you can express your own personal taste.
Add pieces that you love like a hanging mobile, pebbles found on the beach and some of your favorite vintage objects.
Introduce original art. Finding art you love can be difficult, and will take time. Look for a connection to the pieces you choose, so you can treasure them forever. The art featured in our first photo is by one of our favourite artists, Krisjanis Katkins-Gorsline, based in NY.
