  • Add style to your bedroom

    2019 - 10.13

    Looking for inspiration to style your bedroom. Sealy drew upon its 75 years in the Australian bedding industry to provide these tips.

    Tip 1: Use colour to harmonise elements.

    Crisp whites are classic, clean and energising, but can look sterile if not paired with coloured accents or varied in texture. Solid, subtle creams, beiges, taupes and muted shades of blue are softer alternatives that are less likely to age than trendy geometrics and graphic patterns.

    Tip 2: Use your budget wisely.

    Upcycling can be fun and is a wonderful way to reduce wastage when revamping an outdated room. Refreshing an aging dresser with simple silver hardware or a new finish, for example, is a relatively inexpensive way to breathe new life into your daggy decor.

    Other aspects of your bedroom interiors however, such as a supportive mattress that allows you to sleep restfully, are worth investing in. There should be no skimping when it comes to your health -you spend one third of your life in bed, after all -but there are plenty of creative ways to acquire minimal, classic pieces of furniture and decor on a budget.

    Tip 3: Keep your comfort at the forefront.

    Generously layering plush pillows over your bed will create the feel and appearance of abundant luxury. The rest of your bedding, however, should be easy and practical. A temperature ranging between 16 and 20°C is ideal for a restful night’s sleep, so opt for fresh, light bedding in the summertime. In the cooler months, soft, textured throws and cozy knits in versatile neutrals are a great investment for adding warmth.

    Tip 4: Declutter your space to the best of your ability.

    Space is luxurious and liberating, while clutter only serves to collect dust. Unfortunately, many of us are in the habit of cluttering our nightstands with our personal belongings, and hanging on to every beautiful piece of decor we come across. Less is more, so resist the urge to hang on to anything that a) isn’t useful, or b) doesn’t vibe with the rest of your interiors.

    If minimalism is something that you struggle with, take it slow: aim to donate, gift or recycle one belonging of yours per week, and usespace savers, hidden storage or a storage locker for the rest of your non-essentials.

    Tip 5: Add a touch of personality to your interiors.

    Clean and classic doesn’t have to be mundane, in the same way that playfulness doesn’t have to be messy. Fresh greenery and a captivating artwork are two great ways to bring life to your space in a way that’s tasteful, and work especially well bringing balance to a mature master bedroom. See your local nursery for a low-maintenance indoor plant that will add effortless pep to your interiors, or pick out a beautiful, calming piece by your favourite local artist.
