If you’ve been reading my blog over the course of the last year you will know that I am currently having a big decorating overhaul in my flat. The front room, bathroom, kitchen and Tapangas’ bedroom are completed with the toilet and hallway to be done any day now.
The next big project to be done is my bedroom, it’s taken me a while to actually get around to it due to the space being rather large, the fact there is huge items of furniture in there and I just had no idea on what I wanted. I’ve always toyed with the idea of pale pastel colours of pink and purples, then on the other hand I wanted deep blues and turquoise.
I think I have now finally found the theme I am going with and luckily it incorporates everything I want.
I have teamed up with Bed Guru on this post because they know exactly what they are doing when it comes to getting a good nights sleep, and let’s face it we all want a space that feels relaxing and inviting to sleep as no matter how comfy your bed may be the space around has a lot to play in it. Bed Guru are sleep specialists who know that no two people are the same when it comes to their sleep requirements. They have not just a belief but an obligation to their customers that everyone gets a great nights sleep.
Bed Guru have launched a great new campaign called #FabricGuru as they know that people need a variety of choice when it comes picking a new bed. They have a wide range of beautiful upholstered beds in a range of different colours and sizes to bring a touch of luxury to any bedroom.
A few things to think about before you decorate and buy new furniture
- Size and shape of your room – Some rooms are shaped quite awkwardly, you have to take this into account when choosing where to put things. My room is very large but it also has lots of awkward area with not a lot of long flat wall space, this really hinders where I can put things like my bed and bulky furniture.
- Colour schemes – We all have colours we love but sometimes it can’t be plausible to put your favourite colour in a space due to how it might make the room feel. You can easily get around this by adding pops of colour in the form of pillows and throws.
- Light – In the bedroom make the most of relaxing light. I barely ever have the main light on in my bedroom, instead having dimmed lights via lamps during the evening times. During the day my bedroom gets the sun from all angles from the moment it rises.
- Good curtains or blinds – I’ve found that one thing I need when going to sleep is complete darkness. I live in quite a built up area so there is always lights from the outside coming in, the way I get around this is with blackout blinds that help keep my room how I like it.
I’m really excited now I know what I want in the bedroom to get decorating.
