Updating The Bedroom In Time For Summer

Thursday, 29 March 2018  |  Social

Did you know that we spend over a third of our lives in our bedrooms? So why neglect a space that’s so important to us?

According to The Home Company, Skipton’s long established furniture and furnishings store, a few simple tweaks to accessories will have an enormous impact on the overall look and feel of a bedroom.

Linda Lee, the lifestyle store’s manager said: “As we head into the Summer months, now’s the time to say goodbye to the dark, moody shades of Winter and welcome vibrant, vivacious hues into the bedroom to create a really striking look.

“It needn’t cost a fortune to transform your space, a few simple tweaks to curtains, bedding and accessories can really alter the impression of a room. A white decorating scheme is the perfect way to magnify and reflect the summer sunshine and fill the house with light when it’s grey outside. If you can’t handle it totally plain, incorporate your personality through cushions, throws and faux flowers in vibrant, feel-good colours.”

For those wanting a total bedroom overhaul, Linda suggests the contemporary Coelo Bedroom collection. Ideal for maximising storage space, the range comes in a choice of colours and finishes of wood that suit a selection of decorating schemes. 

Invest in the best bed you can afford, it’s the key to getting a good night’s sleep in your new bedroom. It’s also essential to make sure you have the right bedding fabric to help restful sleep. Opt for a 100% cotton collection, such as the stunning floral Bird Garden range which retails from approx. £59.00.

Choose accessories in calming shades of pastel blues, greens and yellow such as the Zigzag Cushion in mustard yellow and the Piped Savannah Cushion in salad, to create a more relaxed environment but still provide that all-important Summer feel.

A large wall mirror is also a great way to breathe life into a room – it will reflect the light around an area to create a feeling of openness.
