Design tricks to make your bedroom beautiful spotted by Kiss the Moon

Is your bedroom your favourite room in the house? We think it deserves to be. We spend a third of our life in there, so it makes sense to turn it in to an environment that makes you feel just right. The more at home you feel, the better you’ll rest. We’ve scouted out seven clever design tricks that have the power to transform the space you sleep in and turn it in to the bedroom of your dreams. Have a look…

1. Painted floorboards

We love the drama that the black floor adds to this room. It helps the coloured soft furnishings really pop and anchors the neutral walls. We’d add a few creamy thick rugs for winter and would love to know if that real fire still works. Imagine how cosy that would make it on a chilly night.

2. Colour splash Keeping things pared back and neutral with just flash of colour is a lovely way to create a space that is calm but charming. These coral coloured cushions from urbanoutfitters.com do the trick well. There’s just a little bit to look at here, nothing busy, so it’s very easy on the eye. We can imagine those records on and the lights down low as we doze off.  Peace and love.

3. Blush & Bronze Old gold, bronze tones go so well with gentle pinks. They always looks the picture of elegance and warmth.  It’s a colour scheme that makes us want to curl up and cuddle, so perfect for a bedroom. Add a generous helping of soft washed linen and knitted grey throws as in this room by xxxxxx to create a lovely effect that feels timelessly elegant and feminine without being too girly.

4. Driftwood There’s something about the nature of sea-washed wood that makes us feel as calm as an ocean.  This  bedroom in a Swedish home uses it brilliantly we think. The colours and textures in the headboard bring instant character to the space. The string of  lanterns wrapped round the bare branch is a beautifully simple bit of light as art and contrasts really nicely with the more industrial style jielde table lamps.  Clever and simple – our favourite combination.

5. Shelf life This shelf works hard in this small bedroom – providing both a surface to create visual interest and also a practical way of providing directional light without eating up space on the bedside table. We love that while it creates interest in the room all the objects are hidden from your view when you are lying in bed. So they create no visual noise to interrupt you as you fall asleep.

6. Going dark We love inky colours and having been brave and tried it in one room, have found out firsthand how painting things in a deeply dark colour can transform a space. Dark in a bedroom is peaceful.  Keep everything else simple, like this room has done and you have a beautiful space to sleep in.  We love the idea of a party dress as decoration too. Maybe one which doesn’t just look the part but also is a reminder of happy days and favourite tunes.  A lovely way to create positive memories to fall asleep to.

7. Texture There’s more than one way to create visual interest – colour and pattern work for some, but if you want to keep things simpler, go for texture instead. The beautiful carved headboard and old lace valance is all this room needs. We’re told the lace is actually part of an antique tablecloth that’s enjoying a second life in the bedroom.  Love this idea! (Image from vintagewhiteblog.com via Pinterest)
