How to: give your bedroom a New Year’s makeover
Spring, is that you?
Spring is (slowly but surely) on its way and to kick-start that fresh feeling, we’ve got all the bits that are going to put the ooh back in bedroom because, let’s face it, we’re going to be doing quite a bit of sleeping-in this month. So hit snooze and read on for our ultimate sleep space styling tips.
When it’s cold outside, you need some really luxe sheets to pull over your head – they make ignoring the alarm totally acceptable. Azure blue stripes are fresh without being too cool toned (it’s chilly enough). Or, if you’re feeling even more spring-like, you can opt for a botanical print, which is much easier to introduce at this time of year than full-on palm prints. We’ll reserve the parrot motifs for when we can prize the fluffy socks off our feet.
Nothing says new season like new home fragrance and for all you candle coveters out there, choosing your perfect scent is a serious job. Luckily for you, we’re also fragrance fiends and we think we’ve found the ultimate one. This fresh coastal scent is invigorating yet calming (perfect for January), blending waves of blue tea and floral eucalyptus with a hint of sun-drenched moss to evoke that seaside feeling. Now all we need is a bit of sunshine.
The scatter cushion: a humble yet totally decor-changing addition that’ll instantly transform the feel of your space. So it’s out with the all-bells-on Christmas number and in with this sophisticated stripy version instead. And because one cushion is never enough (it’s a fact), try pairing it up with a woollen grey pillow and a mustard one too. Great for that eclectic look.
