When designing a bedroom, it is especially important for me that we add some natural elements. Whether that’s in the form of the more standard greenery, planting and wooden floorboards or something a little different like the clever use of plywood for a headboard and refurbishing some old crates for storage. By adding these elements, the room takes on a tranquil and relaxing vibe. Studies have shown this can actually reduce the heart rate and pulse making for a more pleasant environment to rest – perfect for retreating from a busy day.
This allows us to do whatever we like without worrying about other people’s potential negative reactions. When you think about decorating your bedroom and want to create a cosy nook that might not reflect the latest fashion – that’s great. Want to try an unusual colour? Go for it; if you have an idea that’s a bit left field and don’t know which room to try it in – your bedroom is the safest room to let rip with your wildest ideas.
