A Top Designer’s Advices for Creating the Perfect Bedroom
After all, they don’t call it a BEDroom for nothing. Start off by purchasing the best mattress you can afford; one that provides excellent support and keeps your spine aligned properly. You can skimp on other bedroom furnishings, but not on your mattress – it’s where you spend a third of your life.
Hobbes says, “I prefer cotton sateen with a 400 thread count. Look for creative embroidery or a decorative border pattern that looks beautiful when folded back on the made bed.”
Go all out; don’t be afraid to toss in some beaded pillows or ones that are furry or with a tassel or two. As Hobbs says, “Toss pillows provide you an affordable way to update the look of your bedroom quickly and easily. Think about swapping them out seasonally for a fresh new look!”
It might be the star, but your bed isn’t the only piece of furniture in your room. You also need the basics. At a minimum, that includes one – or even better, two – nightstands, a frame for your bedand a dresser with a large mirror hung above it.
Hobbes likes wall sconces, and even more so if they have dimmers.Wall sconces save space on your nightstand, and if you choose designs with swing-arms, you can direct the light right where you want it — perfect for those who enjoy before-bed reading. You’ll need at least another couple of light sources, as well, depending on the size of your room. Those might includea ceiling light fixture, a floor lamp or smaller bedside lamps.
