5 Tips to Style Your Bedroom Like a Professional

June 07 2023 – Jayne Graham

So you want to redecorate your bedroom but not quite sure where to start? Well we thought we would share our top 5 tips on bedroom styling and help you turn your bedroom into a stylish sanctuary.

1. Choose a Colour Scheme:

A professional-looking bedroom usually has a cohesive and well-planned out colour scheme. Consider choosing a colour palette that is soothing and relaxing, such as different shades of blue, green, whites or grey. These colours are super popular for coastal styles, if you prefer a modern farmhouse look then warm colours like browns, mustards and creams are a go to.  Whatever your colour combination, stick to it and bring elements of the colours out through every part of your styling.

2. Invest in Quality Bedding:

High-quality bedding is a must if you want to achieve a polished and professional look. Look for bedding that is soft and comfortable, while also being stylish. Our go to is linen, it is soft and perfect all year round as it breathes well in summer, but is super cosy in the winter as linen is that little bit heavier.  When it comes to bedding we also actually believe investing in a quality bed that will last the test of time is a must.  One that is constructed well and provides a style that is classic and timeless.  If you prefer an ensemble, then finding a unique bedhead is also a great investment and can change your room from Heh to Wow! 

3. Add Texture and Layers:

This is the fun part! To create a cosy and inviting atmosphere, consider adding some texture and layers to your bedding and decor. This can include throw pillows, blankets, and curtains. I am a bit of a cushion freak and change my throw cushions often! There are so many amazing cushion designs but if you want to stand out with your styling, look for boutique brands.  They usually have designs that are limited editions and provide a real unique piece for your bedroom.  This is also true about throws! Colours and designs if purchased from a boutique brand means your bedroom won't look like everyone elses.  We love Pony Rider, Lazybones Saarde just for this reason.

4. Keep it Clutter-Free:

A cluttered bedroom can quickly make it look unprofessional and unkempt. Make sure to keep surfaces clean and tidy, and invest in storage solutions to keep items organised and out of sight. This is easier said than done when you have kids running around, pets jumping on beds and family members that just don't clean up after themselves.  But, the simple step of removing clutter should help and make your room feel more of a sanctuary than a family room! 

5. Focus on Lighting:

Good lighting is essential in creating a professional-looking bedroom. Consider investing in a combination of ambient, task, and accent lighting to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Pendants that drop from the ceiling are popular and look dramatic, but a simple side lamp can also bring warmth to a room.  Wall lamps have also become a very popular addition to interior styled bedrooms.
