Who loves their bed?! I love my bedroom and my bed so much, it is the one place where I can relax properly, don’t feel like I am surrounded by jobs to do, and where I can switch off from the day. So to me it is really important to have my bedroom to be decorated nicely.

How To Create A Relaxing Bedroom

Here are my 5 ways on how to create a relaxing bedroom, which will help you relax and unwind from your day.

Calming Colours

We have grey and white, and as soon as I completed this room I felt relaxed in there. They are not hash on my eyes, they are calming and my brain doesn’t have to deal with lots of colours coming out at me in the evening. However the colours are so easy to work with, and add in a shot of colour into the room if you want.

Subtle Lighting

I really dislike strong lighting in my home anyway, but even more so in my bedroom. So pop in some little bedside lights that let off a subtle light. Ceiling lights can be strong, and do what they are meant to and light up the whole room. This isn’t very relaxing, even include some candles to create even softer light.

Soft Linens

Nothing beats getting into bed at the end of the day, snuggling down under your duvet and relaxing. So get some soft linens, that are kind on your skin and enjoy that feeling of snuggling down.

Throws and Cushions

Fluffy cushions and throws are perfect to build a little fort around you! I love nothing more than getting into bed with a cuppa, resting my back on my cushions and pulling the throw over me to keep me extra warm!

Soft Flooring

I think bedrooms should have carpets, and soft ones too. When I step out of my warm bed I want to put my feet on a warm floor. We splashed out a little more than usual on my bedroom carpet, and got a iSense carpet, I have never felt anything so soft before!

Competition To Win An Aria Duvet Set

So I thought I could help you out and make your bedroom space relaxing and pretty, and bring you a giveaway. I was sent a beautiful duvet set from Rooi. Rooi is an affordable luxury living online shop, that brings together a modern, East-west fusion of home décor.

The Aria Grey duvet set comes with a duvet and 2 pillows, with lace running along the top and sides of the pillowcases. It was the lace that stood out to me, it made the duvet so pretty but not too fussy for my husbands taste. They  have even added in hand holes to make changing the bed easier!

I was really impressed with the quality of this duvet set, priced at only £29.95 for the double, and £35.95 for the king, I think this is really reasonable. It was soft to sleep in, and I had a very good nights sleep. Only problem was I didn’t want to get out of bed even more in the morning!

As it is Mothers Day, I thought it was a perfect day to feature this duvet. I am looking forward to my breakfast in bed! How are your Mothers Day mornings? I always remember bring my Mum breakfast in bed, with a Daffodil picked from the garden and placed in a little vase on her tray.

    I’ve entered on instagram, but I liked this blog! Im looking for bedroom inspiration and this has definitely helped! Working shifts opposite shifts means our room feels like it’s in perpetual darkness! There is always someone asleep! It certainly needs a new calming influence!!

  4. Entering this and hoping to win this as a surprise for my mother!

    We need a bedroom make over. Ours is a bit chaotic. We defo need some calming colours in ours x

    • Thank you, I find it so calming but also I know if I want to add some colour at some point I could easily.

  7. Beautiful photos, I agree with your 5 points fully! I think calming colours are so important to help you relax and switch off! x

  8. You have a lovely room here and I agree with everything and we have tried the same with our room….I’m not sure you’d approve of our scandi bare floorboards though in the grown up rooms 🙂
