How to Turn your Bedroom into a Luxurious Retreat

  • Your bedroom should be the one place that there are no worries, and the world comes to a standstill until you are ready to join it again.
  • With the stress and the high paced life that we all live in, your bedroom is the one place to truly forget about life.  Your bedroom is where you unwind, relax and recharge for the next day.  If you could make your bedroom into a luxurious retreat, wouldn’t you jump at the opportunity?  Through lighting, fabrics, and spa inspired décor, you can come home to a bedroom that you dream about all day! See if these tips will help you make your bedroom into the retreat you always dreamed of.
    • Have multiple sources of light: Lighting in your bedroom can make the difference between a sterile room and a soothing sanctuary.  Recessed lighting in your bedroom casts an even glow as opposed to a fluorescent light fixture. Use side lamps for task lighting, and consider installing a dimmer for overhead lighting. By controlling the lighting in your bedroom the mood can go from bright and energetic to soothing or romantic.
  • Make your bed the focal point: In your bedroom the bed takes front and center stage, as it should.  If you really want a bed that is truly unique, why not have a bespoke headboard designed?  The more you enjoy the bed and its position in your bedroom the more relaxed you will feel in the space.

    • Use soothing colors: Nature inspired are soothing colors and relaxing. Moss greens, fresh water blues, and sand inspired tans makes the human body revert back to nature. This is why spas usually have the colors found in nature. Similarly in your bathroom, carry these colors into your towels, carpets and décor.

    • Lavish on the comfort: When choosing bedding, the saying is ‘you get what you pay for’.  Purchase the highest thread count sheets you can afford! Sheets will make the difference in your sleeping experience.  Luxury hotel beds feel heavenly because of their wonderful bedding.  Fluffy comforters, pillows your head sink into, and sheets that feel luxurious will make your bedroom feel the same way.
    • Make your sanctuary smell heavenly: Light incense, and oils such as lavender added to your pillow will help you love your bedroom.  Fresh flowers, and nature inspired scents are the crowning touch for your luxurious retreat.  Open up the windows and let fresh air into your space routinely to bring natural breezes and to cycle in fresh air for your body and mind.
