Your master bedroom is where you spend most of your personal time – lounging, reading, lazing, getting dressed for work and of course, sleeping. It is your own little palace and styling it yourself will give it a much-needed boost and make it homelier for you.
These easy-to-implement tips will instantly change the way your bedroom appears to you and speak volumes about your choice.
Lamps are key to adding elegance and can stand out in any room, if you choose the right one. A bedside lamp is placed right beside the biggest piece of furniture in your room – the Master Bed – so it holds a place of significance. So, don’t settle with the first lamp you see on the store, pick one that complements the rest of the elements in your room.
If your bed is high above the ground, choose a shorter lamp and if your bed is closer to the ground, select a tall one to utilise the height of your room optimally.
Wallpapers have been around for centuries and rightly so – they never go out of vogue. Initially used for protecting wall paint and prevent it from peeling off, wallpapers hold the power to be the centre of attention in your bedroom. A simple floral pattern with tulips, a depiction of modern art or geometric asymmetries, you have countless designs to choose from.
Every time you pass a mirror, you irresistibly look at yourself, right? Mirrors can add intrigue and depth to your bedroom when it comes to adorning walls. Whether its mounted on the wall or is rested against one, make sure that the size, height and frame of the mirror blends into your room seamlessly. You may choose a traditional “jharokha” made of teak wood or a stylish frame with metallic finish to go with the rest of your furniture.
Even when your floors are tiled with marble, nothing speaks of comfort like a plush rug or a carpet. If your tiles are minimalistic and simple, get a carpet which complements the simplicity and stands out visually. For tiles or floorboards which are already visually rich, choose a lustrous textured rug with soft and shiny fibres.
Once you have picked something to liven up your floors, it’s time to revamp the look of your bed!
To start with, decide on a colour palette that you would love to indulge in. Then look for a shade that contrasts with your theme. So, for a bold coloured bedsheet, contrast can be achieved with pillows in pastel shades and bright pillow covers with nude coloured bed sheets. Use these to create interesting combinations and experiment until you are smug with satisfaction. You can also try adding cushions with quirky patterns and duvets or quilts with large overlay prints that stand out in the room.
With these simple tips, you will fall in love with your bedroom again – all without the time and hassle required to hire an interior decor specialist.
