Sleep is a beautiful thing. In the warmth and comfort of your own bed, sleep can help you stay healthy, improve mental dexterity and recharge for whatever tomorrow holds. While finding your perfect mattress is essential to a good night's rest, it's all for naught without a great pillow to rest your head.
When it comes to sleep, comfort is not a luxury, it's a necessity. For many, finding the right mattress can be the difference between waking up well-rested and “stay out of my way, there literally isn't enough coffee in the world.”
With this in mind, we return to our reality. Now that summer is over and we hurry towards wintertime, outdoor canopy beds are put aside for an encounter with cozy canopy beds in the bedroom. Feathered beds used to be frameless bags filled with feathers that had to be fluffed every morning. Now we indulge in soft but sturdy mattresses with luxurious bedsheets under breezy canopies.
Place your bathtub in front of a mirror wall or just an oversized mirror, and you'll get that unique and chic look, which will make your taking a bath a refined spa procedure. It can be a sleek mirror wall for a modern or minimalist bathroom or a refined framed one for a chic exquisite or just vintage-inspired bathroom – such a piece will definitely become a statement décor feature. I totally love the idea of an aged-looking mirror wall, which makes any bathroom luxurious and exquisite. Add lights and chandeliers and voila – you got a fantastic bathroom!
Don't be afraid to get creative; consider side tables or end tables as options. A Moroccan pouf or cube ottoman with a tray on top also are alternatives to traditional nightstands. Finally, keep in mind your mattress height; you'll want to make sure your table isn't too high or low.
Decide on your room style first: modern, minimalist, retro, mid-century or beach. Neutral beige shades will become a perfect soothing backdrop for almost any kind of room. If you are looking for a moody ambience, opt for rich brown shades or dark brown. Brown shades are more often used for walls, floors and furniture, while blue can be added as accents. Coastal-inspired rooms look amazing with brown and blue, opt for rich blue shades and calm brown ones, beige or other neutrals.
The beautiful dandelion example below, to me, speaks something about me and my life. It is more than a nice looking picture; and this is what to aim for within this trend, which will be a popular one for 2014.
Many successful artists and designers draw on the past for their innovative breakthroughs, and this principal certainly extends to interior decor too. It's hard to browse through design magazines without coming across a modern room that incorporates a standout Mid-Century chair, or an industrial kitchen that relies on the exciting colors of vintage appliances. This post examines 30 fabulous living rooms that infuse their contemporary sensibilities with classical design inspiration - these throwbacks range from architectural features to upholstery patterns and, most often, vintage-inspired furniture.
If you have the space, float a dresser, cabinet or desk in the room with enough space to open the drawers on one side and with the back of the furniture piece as your headboard. The best part is that you can sit lamps or other objects on the dresser to shine over you when reading in bed. If you're dresser back is unfinished, paint it or line it with wallpaper.
Walk-in showers have a strong spa feel, and incorporating them into a steam room will create your own private spa. You'll be able to use both things and they won't take too much space, the only thing you need is a bench or some seat, if there isn't enough space, you can make a folding bench. Let the seat correspond your bathroom style: if it's a nature-inspired bathroom, you may use a large stone instead of a seat, or go for a wooden seat. It would be wise to include a small window that can be opened when you use the shower alone to let the air circulate.
