How to : create the bedroom of your dreams

How to : create the bedroom of your dreams

No more wishing your bedroom was heavenly – let’s start making it so. Città Stylist Sam van Kan and homestyle magazine Editor Alice Lines share tips on how to create a cool and calm sleep space of your dreams. 

1. Get fresh.

Subtle stripes meet hero shades in this calming space, where pale bed linen is layered with pillows and cushions in watery and herbaceous hues. Natural wood and sheer linen curtains are a beautiful backdrop to this look.

2. Love it and leaf it.

Prepare for early mornings and evenings to become your favourite times of the day thanks to the shadows of potted and cut foliage on your walls. Create this dreamy scene with a mix of plants of various shapes and sizes; variegated leaves will add interest during daylight hours. With your pots and vases, aim to complement your bedroom’s colour and material palette, but keep it simple so the spotlight stays on the foliage. Raw, natural finishes such as terracotta and stone are great for subtle texture.

3. Choose the right side effect.

With your bedside tables, take a realistic view; they need to function effectively, so be clear about your needs. If you like to have a place in which to stash books, night cream and bed socks, drawers will be helpful; if you only require a surface for an alarm clock and a lamp, opt for a clean and simple side table or stool instead.
