Your bedroom is crowded, in a bad way.
Floor-drobes are a no, a cluttered life means a cluttered mind. Just give things a place, and put them back where they belong. Use baskets for laundry and a rack for clothes that you’ll wear again. Keep trays beside your bed and on shelves for keys, knick knacks and jewellery. Check these storage solutions and our tips to declutter your life.
Bare naked ….walls
While plain walls are great for, well, the dentist, they certainly have no business in the bedroom. Canvas’, wall hangs, and framed photos (but none of the fam, no one wants your mama watching them sleep… or not sleep) are all essential to your boudoir aesthetic.
A statement painting or quirky decoy above your bed will take your room from snore fest to slumber partay overnight. We’ve got wall to wall inspo here.
Too many candles or even worse, not enough or no candles, is probably one of the biggest decorating faux pas’. Too many smells will overwhelm your senses, and probably give you a headache, also fire safety and stuff (still looking out for ya). Let’s not even start on no candles! They are just a necessity, OK?
Be fussy with your candle selection, they take a long time to burn out so, this decision is as important as choosing a husband or what food to order. Mix it up a little bit try an oil burner, or even a diffuse, just get your aromatherapy on. Here are some tested and true options to turn your bedroom into a scent happy sanctuary.
Throw cushions, not shade
What kind of savage does not have a throw rug and multiple scatter cushions? Scatter pillows seem to have only been created to confuse men who just can’t seem to understand that they are not for sleeping. But they’re just so damn cute #sorrynotsorry.
Throw rugs are the adult equivalent of having a security blanky. Whatever they are there for, they’re cosier than that tinder boy asking to come over for “cuddles” , vom. Get all up in these (faux) fur babies.
Whether you’re setting the mood, or more importantly taking a bomb selfie, lighting is key. Natural light is always best, but after dark, it’s important to make sure your lights aren’t harshing your vibe.
Lamps and fairy lights are brighter ideas for before bed activities like reading and studying. They also make super cute accessories. Seriously, have a look at these.
