Easy living, if space allows, introduce a living room feel into your bedroom for the ultimate in hotel boudoir chic. Chairs, upholstered ottomans, artwork, books and treasured collections in a zoned area will create a mini sitting area and add a touch of cosiness. In this scheme an antique dresser painted in a dramatic black provides a natural focus. ‘No matter how small your bedroom is, a chair is always practical,’ says Nicola Holden of Nicola Holden Designs. ‘If it causes too much clutter, consider plumping for something like the unobtrusive Ghost chair by Philippe Starck. Choose hard-working furniture such as ottomans and chests of drawers, and don’t neglect forgotten areas such as those above a door, where built-in shelving can look effective.
Between hunkering down in a nook in winter and swaying in a hammock during the summer, we can find a way to justify sleep wherever, whenever. But this week we have a real reason to celebrate slumber – Sleep Awareness Week. The National Sleep Foundation is celebrating its annual sleep appreciation week. Everything from breathing exercises to your diet and the time you eat your meals can have an impact on your resting state. Being sleep experts, we can confirm a wind-down before bed is helpful, and being interior design experts, we can confirm it’s all about bedroom feng shui.
Something to make you laugh, a supersized inspiring quote, or funny word to start and end the day is a winner. A little optimism goes a long, long way. Divine artwork, blown-up snaps of lovely landscapes – think dreamy white-sand beaches or swaying palm trees – will help you drift off to the Land of Nod with ease. Flowers are also very calming – we love the orchid mural in this bijou dressing corner.
As the Sleep Foundation say, a good mattress is paramount to a good night sleep. Caring for your mattress is important too – vacuum it, flip it every so often and you are recommended to buy a new one every eight years.This marbled grey scheme could have us floating in the clouds in no time, but equally honey tones and heavenly white will send you off to the land of nod.
