Having a bedroom to retreat to after a busy day is basically a must
If you're looking to create your own tranquil haven, these three tips from Spaceslide could be worth trying out...
1 Start by confronting the chaos - you'll never feel relaxed in a cluttered and messy room. If you want to feel calm, you need a clean and organised room. Separate everything into three piles: keep, storage, and donate. Stick to the golden rule of getting rid of anything you haven't used in the past six months (excluding seasonal items) and you'll soon be on your way to reclaiming the space.
2 Make sure the colours in your bedroom work with each other - the simplest way to do this is to opt for colours from the same tone spectrum. For example, tints of light blue and gentle green are popular because they evoke a soothing setting, helping to give the impression of a more spacious and breathable room. Another option is trying subtle tones such as cashmere - this will beautifully complement a room where soft grey shades are used. When the colours and textures blend together, if will create a fluidity in the room which evokes a sense of calm.
3 Choosing your furniture will also play a big part when you're creating a calming environment. Instead of going for bulky furniture, you should invest in some key statement pieces and get them working hard. An ideal solution will be fitted wardrobes, as you can hide your clutter - this is very much a case of out of sight, out of mind. This gives you the space to let you and bedroom breathe.
