Designing the space in your home can be some of the most rewarding work that you can undertake. Your decor can reflect your spirit and style, and done correctly, it can speak to your very soul.
The most intimate space, and perhaps the most important, is the bedroom. It is most often overlooked as it is not regularly seen by visitors to your home. Too often the rooms meant for entertaining guests take precedence over those nurturing private havens.
Choosing the theme of the bedroom decor can vary as much as personal style and depend upon the desired effect; calming or stimulating, meditative or invigorating, an intellectual retreat or a sensual hideaway. It is entirely up to you.
Quilts allow you to make a personal statement in your bedroom. Be sure to keep them in mind. You can also change the whole look of your decor just by changing the quilt on your bed!
Beyond choosing the wall colors and furniture, you have important considerations to make concerning the textiles: rugs, pillows, and bedding. The bedding is one area that you do not want to skimp on when you are furnishing your own nurturing space.
To properly outfit your bed, you will need a substantial mattress, a mattress pad, sheets, a blanket, a duvet or comforter, and pillows. The pillows’ firmness is entirely a matter of personal preference, but be sure they are of adequate number. The sheets, blankets, and duvet all provide an opportunity to contribute to the overall decor of the room, as well as to your physical comfort.
Some bedrooms’ decor are built around a fabulous comforter’s pattern and/or colors, while others leave the bed linens to play the role of accent pieces in the scheme. Too often people find themselves sleeping, or attempting to sleep, on inferior quality.
Remember that other than your comfort and peace of mind, there really are no rules when it comes to creating your private sanctuary. Make it your own.
