By now, hopefully you’ve completed your wardrobe edit, so it’s time to readdress the bedroom as a whole. The bedroom needs to be a “stuff free zone” as it’s the place where you need to feel most at ease.
- I’ve found that my most snuggly bed linen is made from jersey material, it seems to retain the heat from the duvet really well and feels so soft around your body. Add 100% cotton base sheets with a high thread count, for super snugness. I spritz my pillows with lavender just before bed, as it triggers relaxation and helps you happily drift off.
- Only store towels and bed linen under your bed, it’s a subconscious thing but if you sleep on top of clutter, it can clutter your mind.
- If possible, you should be able to walk the entire way around your bed. Beds up against walls can be restrictive for the flow of a room. Invest in some cute bedside lamps and tables that have a drawer, so you can keep things like books, notebooks and sleeping masks close to hand. Again, make sure that you don’t fill this drawer with un-useful things.
- Hang something positive either above your bed or opposite. If it’s going above the bed ensure it’s fixed properly! I’ve made the mistake before of hanging art on a loose nail and it crashing on me in the night.
- Lighting should be kept very low, have some candles on hand and don’t switch on the main lights, only the bedside lamps. This will enable you to regard the bedroom as a relaxing/sensual space.
- Depending on your morning routine, you may tend to get ready in the bedroom, so it’s best to have a mirror to ensure you always look fancy, with a small box or drawer nearby for your bits and pieces.
Considering we spend roughly a third of our lives sleeping, the bedroom area requires a great deal of attention. Let me know how you get on with the bedroom edit, we’ll be moving on to the bathroom next.
