Your Bedroom Makeover with Phyllis Kotzer

Category: General

Sit back for a moment, close your eyes and imagine the most comforting retreat possible. Better yet, remember the best hotel suite you’ve ever been in or the nicest bedroom you’ve seen in a decor magazine. Now ask yourself this, “What do I love most about this space?” Was it the sent in the air, the fresh flowers, the willowy wallpaper, or the billowy bed topper? Was it the softness of the sheets, the downy comfort of the pillows, or the vibrant pattern of the bed cover? Perhaps it was a little bit of everything.

Rest assured in knowing that you can have it all!  Design is in the details and the best place to start is by choosing one detail at a time. When doing so, keep the following pointers in mind:

1. Be sure to blend comfort and fashion with your own personal style.

2. Pick soft, relaxing colours for your walls so they act as a clean canvas and allow your bedding to become the artwork of the room. A neutral wall will also give you the ability to replace your bedding to match your mood or the change of seasons. With this key step you’ll become your own inner diva decorator with the flexibility to choose new “art” for your bed over and over.

3. Once your bed is the focal point of the room decorate outwards, upwards to the ceilings, and downwards to the floor with key accent pieces that are both visually appealing and highly functional.

4. Mix and marry your favourite shapes and designs with pillows, accent furniture, and most importantly lighting! Be sure to incorporate ambient lighting, accent lighting, and task lighting into your decor plan so you can read, relax, and rejuvenate with optimal lighting for each.

5. Your bedroom will always be your favourite room in the house if you move around small accents and soft furnishings every few months. This will keep your bedroom fresh and exciting!

Now all you have to do is rest your head down on the most comfortable pillow, curl up with your softest sheets and your favourite duvet or comforter and you’ll have the most restful sleeps and sweetest dreams!
