How to Make Your Bedroom an Oasis

  • Copy by: Liza Rollins

Your bedroom should be your sanctuary. After a long day, you should be able to retreat to a place of tranquility and calm in order to wind down and catch up on some precious sleep. Design and decor can play a huge role in making sure your bedroom is the oasis it should be. Take notes…


Cozy Rug

When you swing your legs over the side of the bed each morning, it’s nice to touch down on something soft instead of the cold hard floor. Start each morning the right way by investing in a cozy rug.

Bedside Blooms

Keeping a fresh bouquet in the bedroom will not only help you enjoy sweet scents while you snooze, but will also give the space a peaceful, homey feel. Bringing a little bit of nature into the bedroom will help you de-stress at the end of the day and gives you something beautiful to wake up to!

Soft Lighting

If you are trying to make your bedroom as cozy as possible, bright overhead lighting will not help. Instead, opt for sleek bedside lighting whether that be a wall mounted sconce or a simple lamp. It has to be bright enough to allow for reading in bed, but not overwhelming or (gasp!) fluorescent. Tip: Anything with a dimmer is ideal.

Inspiring Art

It’s important to pick out bedroom decor thoughtfully, especially when it comes to art. These pieces will be the first thing you see in the morning and the last thing you see at night, so make sure you love them! Choose art that makes you feel happy, hopeful, and refreshed.

    Love the rug idea! You could opt for a neutral rug or you could choose a rug that will bring color to the space.

  • Love the soft pink tassel trim on the curtains! I recently redesigned my boudoir and I never want to leave it! It really does make a difference!

    I agree with all the ideas plus a comfy master bed 🙂

    Sometimes all white can feel too bright and/or harsh. If you love the whitewashed look, but want something more soothing, softer creams might be better for you. Cozy rugs and whimsical knick knacks are easy fixes. If you want something more intensive, I suggest a bedroom fireplace.
