“A stylish and serene guest bedroom is a fantastic way to welcome loved ones into your home, but can certainly be tricky to master.” Says Kara Demmrich. “There’s no better time than the present to clean out that spare bedroom (aka the ‘junk room’) and transform your space!”
Get the Base Right
There is nothing more essential than a good night’s sleep for keeping you fresh, healthy and happy. On the flip side, a bad night’s sleep can really throw your day out! The right foundation for a restful nights sleep is a mattress with premium comfort and support like a Sealy Posturepedic. You want to ensure the bedroom is a place to relax and recharge ready for all the day’s activities. If you’re unsure of where to start when selecting the right mattress, head to www.sealy.com.au for some great tips on choosing a mattress to meet your needs.
Fresh & Neutral Colour Palette
The bedroom should be a dreamy sleep haven, striking a balance between comfort, style and simplicity. Create this for your guests by opting for serene hues such as crisp, fresh whites, soft shades of apricot or calming sage, then unify your styling elements by selecting bed linen in a similar shade. Stay on trend with earthy, organic materials such as warm woods and palm husks — bringing the outside in is beautiful and therapeutic.
The key to an inviting bed is to ensure you layer your bedding! Light, fresh, neutral colours such as whites and beiges are versatile, timeless and easy to style. Select sheets and a quilt cover in a similar tone and layer luxuriously with plenty of pillows, cushions and a throw. Don’t be afraid to choose cushions of various textures – which will add interest and prevent your bed looking lackluster.
Add a Touch of Green
A touch of greenery is a style essential, and a fantastic way to tastefully inject your interiors with personality and vibrance. Not only does an indoor plant add a pop of colour and living element to the space, it also has countless health benefits. Recent Australian studies have shown that indoor plants can assist in improving air quality and help to lower stress and negative feelings – so your guests are guaranteed to feel right at home.
Don’t Forget the Surrounds
Lastly, remember to take a step back and have a look at the room as a whole. Bedsides with storage are a great feature that can also be used to style and add interest. Some light reading, a candle with a fresh scent and a small ceramic dish for keeping jewelry in are all finer details that help to create a room with personality. Look for other opportunities to create a practical space, such as robe hooks and somewhere for clothes storage.
