1. Softly does it
The key to a calm boudoir? Soft and comforting textures. Choose bedding made from natural materials like cotton or linen, and layer up with a quilted bedspread. Your snooze spot will feel as good as it looks (and you’ll feel motivated to make the bed). Next up, choose a deep pile rug to sink your toes into. And if you want to catch up on that book or podcast, complete a cosy setup with a wool bean bag or velvet floor cushion.
2. Peaceful palette
Light colours can help to calm the mind. So go for a nature-inspired palette with a bed crafted from oak, rattan or cane. If you’re more into that boutique hotel look, opt for understated luxury with an upholstered bed in soft pink or blue. Then add some lush plants in sand or terracotta pots to enhance that outdoorsy feeling. The finishing touch? Pick a deeper tone like orange for your curtains and throws for an unexpected pop of colour. (Up your street? Check out this article for even more earthy interior inspo.)
3. Ray of light
When you’re opening your eyes after a good night’s sleep, you want your lighting to be gentle rather than harsh (more on that here). An easy but essential fix? Make sure your lights are dimmable so you can adjust the intensity to suit your needs – a good electrician should be able to help you. Another way to soften the brightness is to choose lights with frosted glass shades. The Boll wall and table lamps give off a subtle glow and will keep your floor space clear. Plus, they’re perfect for some morning journaling or reading in bed.
4. Clean mind
We know it’s tempting to keep piling your clothes on that chair, but nothing creates more unease than waking up surrounded by clutter. The secret? Hidden storage. An ottoman bed will tuck away your stuff in style, while our Custom MADE wardrobes give you endless storage options that can be tailored to your specific needs. Looking for a place to stash those final bits and bobs? Browse our bedside tables or pick a multi-purpose piece like this upholstered bench – the handy drawer will hide smaller items, and it doubles as a seat for your morning coffee. Clever.
