Go lav­ish for luxe bed­room

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - LIFE HOME - Tracey Hordern

THERE are plenty of op­tions to re-in­vig­o­rate a tired-look­ing bed­room, such as choos­ing new bed linen and adding new cush­ions.

But if you re­ally want to trans­form this in­ti­mate space into a sump­tu­ous re­treat then you might want to con­sider adopt­ing a lav­ish theme and stick­ing with it.

If you choose to in­vest in only one new item, make it a bed­head.

This will be­come the fo­cus, while cre­at­ing a state­ment about the over­all style of the room.

And if it’s a luxe and lush bed­room style you want to cre­ate, choose a clas­sic-shaped bed­head that is up­hol­stered in a sump­tu­ous fab­ric.

Bed­side ta­bles, while prac­ti­cal, can quickly be­come clut­tered and messy. An­other guar­an­teed strat­egy to smarten up the bed­room is to de-clut­ter the bed­side ta­bles.

If you have built-in space in your ta­bles, move ev­ery­thing into the space. Leave only lamps and fresh flow­ers, plus one or two decor pieces at most on show.

Match­ing lamps for your bed­side are also worth in­vest­ing in.

Aside from their prac­ti­cal­ity, well-cho­sen lamps can add am­bi­ence to the bed­room.

Be sure to choose lamps in a style that work well with the over­all theme. If you have room, add an ot­toman to the base of your bed.

Win­dow dress­ings are also im­por­tant to trans­form a bed­room to a boudoir. Gor­geous cur­tains in lush fab­rics such as silk or vel­vet that spill to the floor are the gold stan­dard for lux­ury.

If those fab­rics are not to your taste, en­sure to buy the best qual­ity win­dow dress­ings you can af­ford.
