BUILDING YOUR PERFECT BEDROOM
Building Your Perfect Bedroom... (housetohome.co.uk)
Thinking about your perfect bedroom, well, from the moment you walk into your bedroom, you need to feel relaxed. First things first, lighting. Fit some low wattage bulbs, and the magic will instantly start. Your eyes will be soothed.
You can never have enough cushions, blankets, quilts, wooden domed trunks, throws, embroidery, empty frames, and mirrors can instantly add incredible space, colour and personality to your room. Think textures, think colour, think different types of wood, painted, French, English, they add character, depth and warmth.
Your bedroom needs to be the place where you can escape the hustle, the busy hectic part of your day, the time to relax, unwind, chill, to read, to truly be yourself or yourselves -think about this room carefully. It is your sanctuary. Candles, music, books and lots of love...x
Think textures, think colour...
You can then think about the furniture you can add to you bedroom that can give you the storage you need to make you feel settled and organised, a great way to feel in control of your sanctuary room.
Bedside cabinets are a great place to pop your glasses and bedside reading book, or cup of warm milk or hot chocolate. Not to bring your laptop. A definite no! No 'screen time' at least half hour before sleep time.
Chest of drawers are a great storage solution for jumpers, teeshirts, lingerie and getting sorted here, sorts out so many clothing issues!
A worthy note is the revolution in 'the perfect bedroom', is that sleep is the new power house!
WHY SLEEP IS SO IMPORTANT
"We are in the midst of a sleep deprivation crisis", writes Arianna Huffington, the co-founder and editor in chief of The Huffington Post. Such an interesting piece, and I really found the article an enlightening read and perhaps we can all transform our lives, one night at a time.
She writes how we need to redefine our success through our well-being, her thoughts and discussion is the how the backbone of sleep being our gateway of to a more fulfilling way of living and how it can transform our lives.
Why sleep is so important...
The results are amazing to read, how sleep must be seen as not time wasted, but time so well spent in our lives. how important it is to our well being.
Today we are so fast-paced, looking at our mobile phones at approximately 100-150 times a day without even knowing it, looking at computers, laptops, always connected, connected some how to something, not giving ourselves time, not giving ourselves permission to stop, forgetting to give ourselves a good night’s sleep.
The Sleep Revolution sounds a big alarm bell to tell us to listen to our bodies, to actually wake us up to go to sleep, have a good nights sleep, enjoy sleep, it truly can transform your life, make us feel so much better about ourselves, it gives us energy for the next day, to literally face the day. YOU choose, a good nights sleep, quite literally, the old addage 'SLEEP on it' makes it oh so much better in the morning, doesn't it?
