BED­ROOM

South Wales Echo - - YOUR HOME -

“A tall, winged head­board gives a room the ‘wow’ fac­tor and com­pletely trans­forms its aes­thetic into some­thing so­phis­ti­cated and spe­cial. Or opt for a sim­ple metal or wooden one, if you don’t want the bed to dominate.

“Dress a bed with throws and cush­ions in a new colour scheme – deep blues, teal and indigo are in fash­ion. This colour could be used to paint a fea­ture wall be­hind the bed, or take the shade over the walls and ceil­ing for a cosy, cos­set­ing feel.

“Even a ba­sic makeover can make a dif­fer­ence.

“Fo­cus on de­clut­ter­ing and tidy­ing sur­faces – too many vis­ual dis­trac­tions can make it hard to re­lax and sleep. Change bed­side lamps or just re­place drawer han­dles and cur­tain ties with more dec­o­ra­tive items. All these can make a sur­pris­ing dif­fer­ence to the room’s at­mos­phere and ap­peal, and all for a min­i­mal cost.” Bag a bar­gain at Fur­ni­ture Vil­lage, which has an up­hol­stered winged Tem­pur Hol­cot Ot­toman bed frame (king­size) for £995. Ac­ces­sorise with its velour cush­ions, £39 each, and a Cera mus­tard ta­ble lamp, £119.
