Cre­ate a sooth­ing bed­room scheme

Whether sleep­ing or dress­ing, here’s how to get the best from your boudoir

turn it down Con­trol the over­all bright­ness (like the ceil­ing light and ta­ble lamps) with a dim­mer, so you can ad­just the light strength.

look for lamps Ta­ble lights are great for pro­vid­ing am­bi­ence but they’re not ideal for read­ing in bed. Add an

ad­di­tional type of task light or clip-on light in­stead, or a wall light, which would work well. Re­mem­ber to place switches near the bed so you can turn them off with­out get­ting up.

dress light Heavy cur­tains can cre­ate a dark feel. Fit a voile or muslin drape to en­joy

a beau­ti­fully dif­fused light stream­ing into your room, while still hav­ing some privacy.

get up with the sun On dark win­ter morn­ings, try a sun­rise sim­u­la­tor alarm clock that gen­tly recre­ates the nat­u­ral sun­rise, in­creas­ing the light strength in your room,

and so al­low­ing you to wake up more nat­u­rally.

avoid a glare Rather than harsh bulbs, make use of dec­o­ra­tive oc­ca­sional va­ri­eties for a moody at­mos­phere. Pretty string lights or fes­toon bulbs give a gen­tle glow and will look fab­u­lous draped or hung in any bed­room.
