Voulez-vous coucher avec moi? Continuing on in our blog series, 4 Ways to Update Your Home in 2019, today we focus on the bedroom. The bedroom is arguably the most personal room in your home. It’s where you dream, it’s where you recharge, and, of course, it’s where the magic happens! So, we think it’s important for the bedroom to be comfy and chic.
We love soft, luxurious bedding – there’s no better feeling than snuggling up with your special someone in thousand thread count cotton sheets! And changing out your bedding periodically is actually one of the easiest ways to freshen up the look of your bedroom. A new set of sheets, a duvet in an alternate color, or even just some throw pillows in a bold print can often make a huge difference in the space. Our friends at West Elm have a ton of great new arrivals in store for the new year. We personally love their line of Belgian Linen sheets and duvet covers. Remember to keep it casual and loose – lucky for you, the messy look is sooooo 2019!
Thinking beyond just aesthetics, there’s another way to make your boudoir feel fresh and new this year. Are you smelling what we’re selling here? That’s right – a new scent for the new year! A nice aroma can totally change the feeling of a room. Oil diffusers, candles, and incense are all great options! Click Here for a list of some of our favorite scent makers.
Already have new bedding and a great scent in your room, but still not feeling well-rested? It may be time to change the color in your room. Studies have shown that certain colors actually have a psychological impact on mood. Reds, Oranges, and Yellows tend to be more suitable for high energy spaces, where you’d like to generate productivity. Whereas blue, green, and gray tones are more likely to promote tranquility and calm. Dunn-Edwards 2018 color of the year, The Green Hour (pictured above) has hues of green, blue, and gray, making it a great choice for a restful bedroom.
