5 blogger tips for a Valentine’s bedroom
Show your bedroom a little love this month with these Valentine’s ideas from the My Friend’s House bloggers
Ah, Valentine’s Day! Whether you love it or loathe it, there’s one thing we all adore – a good night’s sleep. So why not treat your bedroom to some well-earned TLC this February? With a bedroom this good, you won’t even be wishing for a surprise hotel booking (much).
1. Bed linen
A new set of bed linen will add an instant feeling of indulgence – especially in this season’s trend of dusty pinks and dove greys. For that hotel-room feel, make sure the sheets are 100% cotton.
2. Low lighting
For a soft lighting effect, choose a table light with an angled neck – or a simple clamp light – then redirect the light to the corner of the room. It’ll bounce back in a dimmer, more soothing way.
3. Heaven scent
Add some atmosphere with your favourite fragrance: scented candles have the added bonus of a warming glow, but you can also use scent diffusers or a room spray. Or why not try natural fragrances with scented potted plants, such as narcissi or hyacinths?
4. Snuggly space
Adding cushions or a throw in sumptuous fabrics will give you somewhere to lounge. But we’re NOT talking leopard print here; it’s all about cosy-but-cool Nordic style with fluffy textures in off-white.
5. Breakfast in bed
If you’re really lucky, you may well be on the receiving end of this ultimate romantic treat – so invest in a breakfast set. A stylish cafetiere, a pair of dinky espresso cups, and of course a hotel-style tray… Well, we can dream!
Tip of the week: For a romantic table setting with a twist, try popping the head and leaves of a rose into the bowl of a wine glass and part filling with water.
