Finishing touches like Vera Wang™ Simplicity Sheets will definitely help make your bedroom look stunning and pull it all together, so here are some tips to help you achieve a great result with your design efforts.
Use lighting effectively
If you ask most interior designers for a fundamental tip that will transform a room, many of them will probably say that lighting is the easiest and most effective way to show off your bedroom in the best possible way.
The main thing to remember is that you need to think a bit more creatively than just having two table lamps either side of the bed. Think about using wall sconces to help maximize a smaller space and light up any dark corners by using a floor lamp.
You also consider the idea of highlighting a feature space with a pendant lamp or maybe you might want to get glamorous with a real statement chandelier or alternatively, rustic and industrial with some bare bulbs strung together using colorful cords.
Using textiles to mix it up
You will be changing your bedding on a regular basis and it is always a good makeover tip to have a different supply of cotton sheets and covers to match your mood and enhance the feel of the room you are trying to create.
A bit of luxury like Vera Wang™ sheets will always help to make you feel relaxed when you settle down for the night and the great thing about bedding, is you can use colors and patterns to reflect your style and draw everything else together in the room. Speaking of textiles, a nice way of mixing things up a little is by adding a rug in the room. You’ve got carpet which fills the whole floor, but having another colour or texture that is present in the room adds another level of creativity and attention to detail when it comes to the design. If you’re looking for inspiration, check out a site like bazaarvelvet.com, where you can see how a variety of colours and designs can make all the difference to any room.
A place to contemplate or relax
Having a comfortable chair or chaise in your bedroom will instantly create a space for you to contemplate what to wear or grab a chance to relax and it also means you have a welcoming space in your bedroom if your children or partner want to come and chat while you choose what to wear.
You would not be alone if you don’t really have a bedroom that is large enough to accommodate a statement chair or luxury seating, but even an ottoman at the foot of the bed can do the trick, plus it can be used for storage as well.
Choosing the right mirrors
We don’t all want to see ourselves while we are lying in bed and if you have a small bedroom space, it can be a challenge to provide the mirror space you need when dressing but avoiding the issue of seeing your reflection where you don’t want to.
Consider positioning mirrors either side of the bed on the wall where the bed head is placed, but also give thought to what the mirror is facing, as you don’t want to see a reflection of your toilet for example.
A successful design strategy involves pulling several ideas together in order to create a unified look that reflects your style and personality in just the right way.
