- Get the Base Right
There is nothing better than enjoying a good night’s sleep. On the flip side, a bad night’s sleep can really throw your day out! You want to ensure that the bedroom is a place to relax and recharge first and foremost, and the right foundation for a restful night’s sleep is a comfortable, supportive mattress like a Sealy Posturepedic. If you’re unsure of where to start when selecting the right mattress, head to www.sealy.com.au for some great tips on choosing a mattress that’s perfect for your needs.
- Fresh & Neutral Colour Palette
When styling a summer-inspired guest bedroom, stick to calming tones that conjure up feelings of relaxing morning walks along the beach. Keep walls fresh and light; in either a shade of white, or for the more adventurous, try a soft shade of apricot or a calming sage. Build upon this colour palette by selecting bed linen in similar shades. When styling within this summery palette, natural materials such as coral, driftwood and palm husks can add personality .
- Layered Styling
The key to an inviting bed is to ensure you layer your bed linen! For the perfectly styled bed, choose light, fresh, neutral colours. You can’t go wrong with linen sheets in shades of white and sand. Again, select a quilt cover in a similar tone and layer with plenty of pillows, cushions and a throw. Don’t be afraid to choose cushions of various textures – which will add interest and prevent your bed looking lackluster.
- Add a Touch of Green
A touch of greenery in a bedroom is a must, and especially important to create a coastal vibe. Not only does an indoor plant add that touch of colour and living element to the space, but it can also have health benefits! Recent Australian studies have shown that indoor plants can assist in improving air quality and help to lower stress and negative feelings – exactly what you need when it comes time to relax and unwind.
- Don’t Forget the Surrounds
Lastly, remember to take a step back and have a look at the room as a whole. Practically, bedsides with storage are a great feature that can also be used to style and add interest. Some light reading, a candle with a fresh scent and a small ceramic dish for keeping jewelry in are all finer details that help to create a room with personality. Look for other opportunities to create a practical space, such as robe hooks and somewhere for clothes storage.
