Your bedroom is the first and last thing you see each day, so it’s important to make sure it carries your personality whilst setting you up for the day. Keep reading to discover our tips on how to create a lie-in worthy space…

Fresh Greenery

Houseplants will thrive in this summer sun, giving you the perfect opportunity to add a bright pop of green to your bedroom. From relieving stress to aiding deep sleep, introducing greenery to your bedroom comes with plenty of benefits. Orchids and snake plants make great bedroom companions due to the fact they produce oxygen at night, unlike a lot of other plants, and come in lots of different variations.

Confident colour

Make your bedroom space a happy one with bright, bold colour. Whether you opt for moody blues, or spicy yellow, decorating with the right colour palette will always make you wake up happy.

Soft furnishings are an easy way to breathe new life into your bedroom. Whether you opt for lightweight linen cushions or colourful throws, accessories can quickly transform a space. For an added airy effect, contrast pastels colours with leafy green foliage reminiscent of balmy summer evenings to beckon the outdoors in.

Why not customise a Tom Raffield furniture piece by choosing your own fabric? Choose your own coloured upholstery from Abraham Moon & Sons for an additional £100 - select the 'bespoke' icon and contact with your order confirmation number and fabric reference. Likewise, if you'd like to use your own fabric please get in touch. Please note, lead times on bespoke orders vary and will be confirmed by our sales team.

Minimalist Form

With summer in full swing, take advantage of bright natural lighting. Opt for minimalist forms when adding lighting and furniture, allowing the sunlight to soak as much of your bedroom space as possible. Adding extra illumination only where needed will create a balanced, soothing space.

Thoughtful Accessories

Dress up your bedroom with functional, beautiful accessories. Adding a few well-chosen accessories is an easy way to update your bedroom without committing to painting the walls or swapping out flooring. A cleverly placed mirror across from your window will reflect the natural light, creating the illusion of a bigger and brighter interior.

Clever storage plays a vital role in an efficient morning routine, meaning you have longer in bed to enjoy your beautiful bedroom (or more time to snooze). Choosing open storage that puts your daily essentials within easy reach will help make the morning rush be less stressful.

Keep it cosy

With the ever-changing British weather, it’s always wise to keep cosy touches at hand even in summer months. A sheepskin rug will keep toes toasty on those colder mornings and provide a comfortable transition to bed in the evenings. The natural texture and tone of sheepskin accessories will suit alongside any colour palette, creating year-round cosy touches.
