If you make your bedroom a bit of a sanctuary, it’s a nice place to relax in the evenings and can really help relieve some of the stresses and strains of the day. It is so important to try and get a good night’s sleep in a comfy bed, not distracted by noise or lights. So in many ways the bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the house.
This week I headed over to one of my favourite mood board making places, Polyvore – as well as lots of high street stores looking for those items that I feel would create a perfect sanctuary bedroom. I’m loving all the geometric designs that are around in soft furnishings right now and was pleased to find a really nice bed set from Dunelm with this relaxed, scandi vibe. We have a big bed and not all stores go beyond a King size with their duvet covers, so it was good to see that Dunelm supply this one in Super King for a very reasonable £24.99. It is a part of the Yellow Skandi Geo collection which includes curtains and cushions, too.
I used the duvet design as the basis for the room, bringing in a soft dove grey for the paint and a touch of pastel pink in the pouffe which is from Matalan. I also think this Bermuda blackout roller blind from Direct Blinds would work perfectly in the room scheme:
I think the key to making a bedroom a total sanctuary is having things around you that you find relaxing, so for me that would be a lovely fluffy robe to get into after a bath and using gorgeous-smelling beauty products like those from L’Occitane. Some home interior magazines to browse through would be a must, too! That’s why my mood board design would be the perfect space for relaxation for me personally.
What elements would your ideal bedroom sanctuary include?
