Regardless of the size of your master bedroom, with a little creativity and a few key essential decor pieces, you can turn your Master Suite into a restful retreat and have your own private oasis of peace and calm. Learn how to style your Master Bedroom with our insider tips
Start with a great foundation
When you want to anchor a design, build from the bottom (or in this case the floor) up. If you have hardwood flooring, choose a patterned area rug to add colour and style to your space, and top off your look with neutral pillows or linens. Or you can choose a rug that is neutral and add bold colours and patterns with linens or wall art.
Focus on the right bed
Gone are the days of purchasing a bedroom set and being stuck with matching pieces. Headboards and bedframes have come a long way and are truly the focal point of a bedroom. Choose an upholstered headboard in a light fabric for a romantic look and feel, or opt for a velvet button tufted headboard for a luxe look that oozes glamour.
An ornate metal headboard can command attention while a four poster bed has exquisite flair. If you choose to forgo the typical headboard, you can always hang large artwork or an antique door over your bed to give the illusion of a headboard. The choice is, of course, yours!
Lovely linens make your room inviting
Bedspreads, duvets, throws and quilts—each of these can help create an atmosphere that is conducive to relaxation. Whether you show off a gorgeous bed frame by leaving it exposed, or you cover a metal frame with a pretty bedskirt, linens play a key role in creating an atmosphere that invites you to wrap yourself in luxurious comfort. We adore scandi linens from Balmuir or if your looking for luxury then Josaphine Home have some of the most sumptuous and luxurious bed linens on the market.
The perfect sidekick: pretty bedside tables
Your bedside tables don’t need to match in size and style, but it’s great if they coordinate and give your room a cohesive look and feel. A mirrored chest of drawers or chic faux leather side table is the perfect spot for a reading lamp, elegant tray for reading glasses and jewellery, or a vase for lovely fresh flowers.
Furniture that helps you “dress the part”
The bedroom is your place to rest each evening and prepare for each day. A dresser or chest of drawers with storage and a mirror above it, or a vanity is a great choice to hold your daily essentials such as beauty products, hair clips, perfume bottles and a jewellery box. A man’s dresser should have a change dish for pocket contents, and a tray for holding a watch, mobile phone and other manly possessions. A bench at the foot of the bed is as elegant as it is practical. Lay your clothes out the night before or sit and take your time getting dressed each morning.
Not every bedroom has tons of wall space and some people prefer minimal wall decor. Spruce up your room with artwork that speaks to you. Subtle beach scenes can help create a serene atmosphere, while framed personal photos and travel mementos can create a space that brings you joy.
Soft and romantic décor demands acrylic or glass table lamps, while a feminine overhead chandelier adds sparkle to any setting. If you enjoy a good book in bed, be sure to have bedside lamps or pendants with adequate light for reading.
