You’ll find it much easier to create a beautiful space that you love if you have an idea of the types of designs you like. Use Instagram and Pinterest to get inspiration for your room. Look at the different colour schemes, layouts and themes, and choose one that you like the most. Look at websites like Furniturebox, which offer bedroom furniture and accessories in a wide range of styles and tastes to give you some room inspiration (I’m obsessed with their Venetian glass bedside tables and units). Once you’ve picked out a design to focus on, look at the elements of it. Look at the decor, the style of the furniture, and the accessories that have been used. These are all important parts of the room, and things that you need to get spot on, if you want to recreate the look.

Keep the walls neutral The key to adding glamour to your room is decorating the walls in neutrals. Whether you prefer paint or wallpaper, using neutrals is a must if you want to create an elegant space. If you’re a fan of bright, bold colours and patterns, these can be added later on. (The best way to add colour to a space is through accessories, not through the walls themselves.)


A statement bed frame You’ll find that in most elegant bedrooms that the bed acts as the statement piece. Ask any interior designer and they’ll tell you that in any sleeping space, the bed should always be the focal point. If you want your bed to act as a focal point, it needs to be a design that’s strong. This means picking a bed frame that doesn’t sink into the background, but standouts and makes a statement. One of the best ways to achieve this is by selecting a bed that’s got a headboard that stands out. Look for a design that fits with the theme of the room, is stylish and, most importantly, eye-catching.

Use accessories to add style and elegance For a room with neutral walls, accessories are crucial for adding style and elegance. There are so many ways that you can use accessories to add personality and glamour; it’s just a case of getting creative. For a room with a sophisticated vibe, it’s best to opt for designer home accessories. If you want a space that feels like it should belong to a celebrity, you need to be willing to invest.


From patterned bedding and rugs that make a bold statement to light fixtures that add glamour, there are so many accessories to choose from. It’s just a case of selecting the right ones. Be choosy about your accessories, and ensure that they fit the style of your room, and you can create a beautiful space.

Even if you’re not a celebrity, with these ideas you can make your bedroom feel like it should belong to one. Happy decorating!

Transform Your Bedroom From Fab To Drab!

Summer is just around the corner, and with that in mind, I’m looking at a few Summer resolutions, which you can spruce up your home as June rolls around. In particular, you may find your bedroom needs a bit of TLC in order to make it your dream space.

I have been working with Laura Ashley who have been looking at the key ideas for bedroom transformation for 2018 and have produced some key tips when it comes to bedroom design.

Now, in this post I am going to expand on some ideas to turn your bedroom into your personal sanctuary.

Eliminate all distractions

Sometimes a lot of us find we suffer from lack of sleep – and much of this can be down to having so many distractions in our bedroom. Of course, we’re not suggesting you get rid of your eye candy partner, but rather the digital distractions – smartphones, tablets, laptops and televisions should all be eliminated. This is a bedroom, not a university common room – make it a place of sleep.

 Give your bed some va-va voom

Does your mattress feel like a bed of nails? Does your headboard resemble something from the Depression era? Your bed is the central focus of your room so you need to make it look as appealing as possible. This doesn’t necessarily mean purchasing a whole new suite – you can even jazz it up with something as simple as a headboard. A beautiful metal headboard in chrome can completely change the look of your bed.


Create the illusion of space

If you’re not blessed with the luxury of extra space, you can make your bedroom look all the bigger by employing a few tips. First off, consider painting or papering your room in brighter colours, which instantly open up a room. Second, think about the first thing your eye is drawn to when you enter the room – is it something big and bulky? Try moving furniture to have smaller items as the point of focus, which will create the illusion of freeing up extra space.


Make a personal dresser

This is the room where you’ll inevitably be primping and preening yourself, so you should make an effort to have this area of the bedroom looking organised. Put in a cheap dressing table, even if it’s just a side table, and arrange your products neatly around the mirror. Keep it far from the bed if you can to avoid any accidents.


Add those individual touches

This is particularly fitting if you’re co-habiting with a significant other. While distractions are a no-no, there’s nothing wrong with having a few photos around the place. You could get creative and add some quirky photo frames around the place, filled with personal photos of your favourite memories.


How to revamp your bedroom in three easy steps

If you’ve been putting up with a boring bedroom for too long, now’s the time to embrace change and revamp this part of your property. The good news is, as long as you know what you’re doing, you can give this space a facelift on budget and without even breaking a sweat. Here are some more hints and tips to transform your space in three simple steps. Step this way to a more stylish boudoir!

1) See the space in a different light  

When you think about the design features of your bedroom, lighting might be the last thing on your mind. However, the illuminations you use in this room can completely transform its appearance. By tweaking your light fixtures and fittings, you can achieve stunning results. For example, if you don’t already have them, consider fitting dimmer switches to your pendant or wall lights. This will help you to create a romantic, relaxing ambience at the twist of a dial. Don’t be afraid to make a style statement out of your pendants or lampshades either. Sculptural or supersize fixtures can make the perfect focal points for bedrooms. Also, for a little extra fun and a splash of glamour, why not strew some fairy lights around your bed?

As well as electrical lights, think about the natural brightness in your bedroom. By hanging blackout curtains in your boudoir, you can ensure you always have complete control over how light the space is. These accessories can help you to set the tone for a romantic evening in and, as its states on, these window dressings make it easier to sleep when it’s bright outside.

2) Set tone with stylish soft furnishings

Another way to breathe new life into your bedroom is to introduce an array of stylish and luxurious soft furnishings. It’s amazing how much of a difference a new bedspread, throw, rug or scattering of cushions can make to these spaces. Take the opportunity to experiment with different colours too. These design accessories give you a chance to test out a range of vibrant hues and patterns. Even if you prefer a neutral palette overall, it won’t hurt to add some colourful cushions or a bold bedspread.

3) Banish clutter with clever storage solutions  

Clutter is the nemesis of the discerning interior designer, so if your bedroom is brimming with cosmetics, clothes and books, it’s time to get serious about storage. If you’re a little lacking in floor space, make sure you take full advantage of the height on offer in your room by investing in tall dressers, wardrobes and cabinets. Also, if you have space under your bed, slide some storage containers there. This can be a great place to keep towels, bedding, clothes, shoes and more.

It might also be time to banish unnecessary possessions from your bedroom. Giving away that dress you love but will clearly never wear again might tug at your heart strings, but it will free up valuable space in your revamped room.
