Updating your bedroom? It’s easier than you think.

Good morning, sunshine. The news today? You don’t have to move mountains to give your bedroom a well-needed refresh. So whether you’re looking for a quick fix or want to go all the way, here are five easy ways to makeover your sleep spot.



1. Goodbye, boring beds

Buying a bed is a big investment. Not ready to take the plunge? Try a new headboard instead. In natural rattan, Tapu’s lightweight, half-moon shape will bring a boho mood to your boudoir. Or go for Selin – the low, oval frame will add a subtle dose of 70s style to your space. The best bit? Both are super easy to fix to the wall behind your existing bed. Zen vibes, zero effort.

2. Express yourself

If you’re not up for painting the walls, bring in some colour with wall art. Our top picks? David & David Studio’s dreamy travel photography is made for those with serious wanderlust, while Dan Hobday’s abstract prints are sure to appeal to your artistic side. Want to have a go at a gallery wall but not sure where to start? Opt for this pre-curated set from the Natural History Museum.

3. The best in bedding

Is there any better feeling than slipping into freshly changed sheets after a long day? Yep. Slipping into something natural. If you want to keep cool during the night (and hate ironing), opt for 100% linen – it looks better the more rumpled it gets. Or if you’re into that classic look, you can’t beat Zana in crisp white cotton. The finishing touch? A super soft throw.

4. Set the mood

Lighting can really change the mood of a space, so think about what you use your bedroom for (aside from sleeping). If it's a space you use a lot for reading and meditating, you might want some well-placed table lamps to give you a soft glow (rather than harsh overhead glare). We recommend Boll’s frosted glass shade, or go architectural with Otha.

4. Mirror, mirror

Mirrors can play with light, optically increase your space and act as a stylish focal point in your room. Need to check your OOTD? Opt for a large leaning mirror. Or if you’re in need of some space to store all your beauty products, choose a wall-mounted design with an integrated shelf.
