8 Things Every Bedroom Needs

Want to come home to a luxurious bedroom that looks like it’s straight out of a House & Garden editorial? Here are the top 8 pieces you’ll need for your most cosy and stylish bedroom ever. 

The bedroom – often referred to as a sanctuary, an oasis and the like – can unfortunately often be far from that. Despite our best efforts to keep our boudoir looking like a peaceful haven, it’s not long before debris (strewn around clothes, mugs, random papers) builds up and it becomes the room you’d least likely show off. And if you, like most, arrive home tired after a long day – a decent tidy-up doesn’t happen as often as you would like.

And yet, with a few key clever decorating accessories, your bedroom can have a boutique-hotel feel. Here’s our top 8:

Aside from your favourite scented standalone candles and tealights, a well-placed candleholder elicits old-world luxury. Even if that isn’t the overall feel you’re going for, a touch of traditional never hurts among even the most contemporary of style.

It goes without saying that one definitive piece of art in the bedroom will set the tone of the space and make a statement about your persona. Ambitious big-city gal? Sensitive nature lover? Say it with a picture.

Everyone needs a bit of mood lighting. A stylish table lamp provides a softer light for a peaceful ambiance at night, as well as a round-the-clock piece of decor.

We’re sure you’ve heard this before, but it’s worth being repeated. A mirror will amplify the space in a room, giving the illusion of bigger volume.

Unless you’re lucky to live in a hot country, there are months of the year where is always a bit of a chill, and a cosy throw in a sumptuous fabric is invaluable.

A room with no accessories is like an outfit without a bag or jewellery – something’s quite not right. Choose 1-3 pieces, depending on the size of your room, that complement the overall theme or have special meaning for you.

An alternative spot to sit down works in your favour when you’re quickly reading something you need to pay attention to or putting on shoes.

I think anyone would agree that waking up and stepping on to a cold, hard floor is far from pleasant. Invest in a soft rug in a colour that complements your colour scheme and wake up to a feeling of comfort.

However big your space, a few carefully chosen accessories will create that professionally decorated feel that’s inspiring to come home to.
