Bring rest­ful na­ture into your bed­room

George Herald - Private Property - - Property News -

Time spent in na­ture is soul sooth­ing, so let’s recre­ate the ef­fect at home with these na­ture-in­spired bed­room dec­o­rat­ing ideas…

De­clut­ter

There is noth­ing calm­ing about clut­ter, so if you have it, the first step is to clear it up. Mag­a­zines, tech gad­gets and beauty prod­ucts are just some of the items that of­ten end up cov­er­ing the sur­face of bed­side ta­bles and dress­ing ta­bles. Toss what you don't need and cre­ate an or­gan­ised and hid­den place for ev­ery­thing else. Your aim should be to keep sur­face ar­eas clear. Add plants

A few plants can go a long way to adding life to a room. From flow­er­ing chrysan­the­mums, to ferns there are many in­door plants from which to choose. But if there is one plant that should be in ev­ery bed­room, it's a San­se­vieria.

Listed as one of the top 10 air­pu­ri­fy­ing plants by Nasa, this plant turns car­bon diox­ide into oxy­gen at night. This means that, even if your bed­room win­dows are closed, this plant is re­leas­ing clean air to help you breathe eas­ier at night. What's more, it's one of those house­plants that is so low Rus­tic touches

Con­sider adding rus­tic wooden fea­tures to the room, like a wooden head­board and rus­tic wooden pic­ture frames. If your bud­get is tight and you don’t have bed­side cab­i­nets, one idea is to find and use small tree stumps as side ta­bles. Up­date the bed­ding

No paint­ing or DIY re­quired. Chang­ing the bed­ding is the eas­i­est way to up­date a bed­room and in­tro­duce a new theme. Neu­trals never go out of style and white, cream or beige all work well in a na­ture-in­spired bed­room. How­ever, if pre­ferred, you can add a lit­tle in­ter­est with pat­terns by find­ing one with a na­ture-in­spired theme.
