If your Springs luxury apartment home is your castle, then the bedroom is your inner sanctuary where you find serenity and relaxation. It's the one place you can decorate based on comfort, not practicality.
We've put together a list of tips to help you create the bedroom of your dreams.
1. Less Is More
- Think about the rooms in a luxury hotel. They're not cluttered up with multiple wall hangings, ornate bedding and extraneous furniture. Simplicity is often the key to elegance.
- Speaking of clutter, make sure you keep your belongings organized. There's nothing restful about a room strewn with loose papers, dirty clothes and other debris.
2. "Stuff" It
Sleep or lounge like royalty with soft sheets, plush comforters and layers of overstuffed pillows. You don't have to spend a king's ransom on your bedroom, but this is one area where you shouldn't economize. Invest in the nicest bedding you can afford.
3. At Your Side
A nightstand is essential to keep items like drinks, reading material and lotions close at hand. Choose one with a drawer where you can stash things away to avoid a messy look.
4. Mood Lighting
A bedroom is no place for harsh fluorescent lighting. Table lamps provide the right amount of soft lighting while adding a little personality. Choose from classic, contemporary, whimsical, reading or whatever strikes your fancy.
5. It Makes "Scents"
Pleasantly scented surroundings automatically make you feel pampered. The best spas use essential oils to soothe and relax, and some scents such as lavender, bergamot and sandalwood can even help you sleep better.
6. Sounds of Silence
Few things can snap you out of a relaxed state more quickly than noise. White noise machines are inexpensive, and many of them have multiple options such as rainfall, ocean waves and tropical jungle.
7. Create a Seating Area
You won't always want to be lying down, so add a cozy armchair where you can curl up with a good book or a bench at the foot of your bed to use while you get dressed.
8. Serve Up Some Elegance
Borrow another trick from hotels and accessorize with trays on night stands or dressers to hold jewelry, perfume and other small items.
9. Look Out Below
Even if your bedroom has carpeting, an ultra-luxe area rug placed bedside is a nice way to greet your feet in the morning.
