We all love waking up after a good night’s sleep feeling refreshed and ready to greet a new day. And a comfortable bedroom is a key factor in getting the best sleep possible.
Here are some great ideas that can help you design your way to sleeping more soundly.
Create mood with colour and pattern: A comfy mattress and soft pillow may help the sheep send you off to sleep, but beautiful bedding that invites you to snuggle up is just as effective.
Select cool or neutral hues to create a room that exudes serenity and calm.

Look to bright and warm tones to foster a sense of good cheer, energy, and cosiness. Bold patterned and colourful beds and bed linens will get you dreaming of exotic destinations. Florals bring a bed into bloom, adding a touch of romance to your boudoir.
Cosy up with a headboard: Adding extra blankets is one way to stay warm at night but for ultimate comfort choose an upholstered headboard. Soft and cushy with no hard edges, an upholstered headboard is the perfect choice when supreme snugness tops the boudoir wish list.

Pair a rocking chair with a side table to create a cozy reading spot, where you can take some time to unwind before hitting the hay.
Create a relaxed, romantic feel by layering quilts and cushions and a decorative patchwork rug. Instead of a nightstand, stack books with tonal spines informally by the bedside. Or make a statement with a pile of decorative cushions.

Add candles, they create a warm, inviting and sensual ambiance to your boudoir.
And a set of stylish storage boxes works well in all bedrooms - use them to keep your belts, scarves and jewelry in order.
And finally, don't forget your windows and floors: up the cosy-factor with stylish full-length curtains and add an extra layer of comfort with a soft rug.
