Create Your Own Bedroom Retreat
Bedroom. A place to reflect after a hard day and
to dream of what tomorrow holds.
Your bedroom is your place of retreat, a sanctuary
where you can escape the daily stress of your life
and take a moment to surround yourself with luxurious
fabrics and warm plush pillows.
If this does not sound like something you can
do in your current bedroom, you maybe in need of
a makeover or maybe just a sprucing up. Don't panic,
achieving that first class hotel experience in your
own bedroom is easier than you might think. Here's
how to start.
Remove the Clutter
Anything that does not contribute to your relaxation
or resting needs to be removed from your bedroom.
Laundry can be stored somewhere else and anything
that reminds you of work or bills should be out
of site. Keep relaxation in and work out.
Start with the Walls
The walls are an excellent place to add a little
color to your space and are relatively inexpensive
to do. Choose a color that calms your senses. Typically
pastels, blues, or greens are restful colors. Researchers
have found that colors of the night such as blues,
indigos and violets can decrease blood pressure,
pulse and respiration rates.
Add the Basics
Next, add your furniture. Remember that open space
is ok and in fact adds a feeling of serenity. So
don't be afraid to include just your favorite pieces
in addition to your bed such as your grandmother's
antique dresser or a favorite find of your own.
Embellish Your Space
Now that you have the basics in place and the tone
is set with the colors on the walls you're ready
to add some charm. SoftSurroundings.com

accessories to soften your space. From flowing bed
skirts and window draperies to soft and luxurious

When adding texture to your bedroom remember to
make it soft so it invites you to curl up and escape
the day's pressures. Lastly, treat your bedroom
like any other guest-visited areas of your home.
Just because it's your private room doesn't mean
that you shouldn't add finishing touches like a
plant in the corner, fresh flowers to the side table,
or peaceful artwork on the walls.

hotel retreat don't forget to lavish yourself with
velvet robe, and soft
plush towels to dry yourself after a good soak.
