Create : a bedroom sanctuary

If anyone should have a bedroom they adore, it’s you. Alice Lines, Editor of Homestyle magazine & Città' Stylist Sam van Kan, share their tips to creating a sanctuary in your bedroom.

1. Silent nights

Make your bedroom a true sanctuary by including only soothing colours and textures. If you prefer not to stick to one scheme year-round, pick a neutral shade for your duvet cover, then simply change your pillowcases, cushions and throws when the mood takes you.

2. Tone it down

Choose a palette of up to five colours in tones of different depths so the effect doesn’t overwhelm the senses. Here, the midtones of the rug and throw provide a restful visual bridge between the pale bedding and the richly hued pillowcases and cushions.


3. Forever Florals

Create a dreamy floral arrangement for your wall by first foraging for long sticks that will bend and not break. Remove any leaves, then use one stick to form a circle as your base. Secure with floristry wire, then wrap additional sticks around the circle, tucking in the ends as much as possible (you can cut off any overhang later if necessary). Weave dried foliage into the wreath from a single focal point, allowing it to extend in different directions for an organic look and securing it with floristry wire. Now tie in flowers, keeping the biggest blooms closest to your focal point.
