THE BEDROOM THAT’S A SPA FOR YOUR SENSES

A bedroom with en suite bathroom is the ultimate private retreat, a place to rest and recharge. So what are the secrets to creating a comfortable, calm retreat like this one?

Soft bedding, closed storage, good lighting – each little detail plays a big role in creating a space where you can start every day with your senses pampered and refreshed.

Right here is what matters. These few square metres where you sleep are the most important in the room. A good bed of course, accessorised with lighting and bedside tables in perfect symmetry. Finally the bedding. Pillows that support the way you like to sleep, quilts to suit the season and cosy linen in calm coffee and cream tones that feels better and better with age. Who wouldn’t feel better after time spent here?
Window treatments are key to creating a bedroom suite that feels like a sanctuary. Blackout blinds said a good night’s sleep, and curtains allow natural light in while keeping nosy eyes out. For total peace of mind, go full length with floor-to-ceiling drapes.
For a clutter-free mind, keep as many things as possible behind closed doors and drawers.

With no handles, storage like this side table and chest of drawers creates clean lines. And with everything out of sight you’ll be more able to focus on pampering yourself.

Comfort lies in little details: a mattress topper, natural materials like linen and cotton, and those small details that make us smile.
