From switching up your colours to levelling up your pillows, here are some easy ideas!
Home design is one of our very favourite things over here at Skylark+Owl Linen Co., especially when we get to create a medley of both style and comfort. Now, bedroom design? That’s even better, and everyone knows that the bedroom is the best spot in the whole home. Plus, bedroom design doesn’t have to reinvent the wheel or cost tens of thousands of dollars to freshen up — in fact, not even close.
Really, all you need to design a bedroom you love are the beginnings of a vision and a few items that can transform your space quickly. Today, we wanted to share some of our favorite easy bedroom ideas (we mean it when we say easy!) so that you can give your bedroom a fresh new look for the new year.
First… set a bedroom design intention.
We’re big fans over here of having goals when it comes to any kind of interior design — because we know firsthand how tough it gets to start decorating rooms in your house when you have a million ideas. So, do a little thinking! Do you want to elevate the relaxation factor in your bedroom? Do you want to totally transform the colours? Do you want to completely switch up the vibe? It’s up to you!
Now, once you’ve decided what you’re wanting to do with your bedroom design, start finding inspiration! Pinterest is a great spot, and Instagram’s saved folders make life really easy when it comes to curating looks, too. Plus, we have 3 bedroom design ideas here for you to dive into!
1. Refresh your bedroom with new bedding.
In most bedrooms, what’s the focal point? It’s almost always the bed, right? That means bedroom design can be very simple and impactful if you start with the bed — i.e., beautiful new bedding. Whether you choose to switch up your colours, your textures or both is up to you… and either way, it can be a big-time change.
Looking for some inspo? For a relaxed look, go with a new set of our washed percale or washed sateen sheets in a colour that you love! If you’re looking for a little more structure, we’d recommend our sateen sheets for a luxe, smooth look. Then, top it all off with a new duvet cover! Grab one in your very favourite colour and texture, and enjoy as your room completely transforms before your very eyes.
2. Create an in-home spa.
The way we see it, your bedroom should strike the perfect balance between sleeping space and an at-home oasis. Enter: one of our go-to methods for designing bedrooms, AKA designing them with that oasis mindset! Look towards clean lines and bright colours when you’re designing your bedroom, and imagine your favourite spa parlor as you go. If you’re ready for a full facelift, invest in bright paint and lighter furniture, too — ahhh.
Want some ideas from us? To elevate the at-home spa feel in your bedroom design, we recommend embracing some new linen bedding, grabbing a new set of cozy towels for your bathtub, and making sure to hang a thick bathrobe up right where you can reach it. Relaxed already, huh?
3. Give your room a pillow facelift.
When it comes to bedroom design ideas, the tiniest switches can often have the biggest impact — and one of those switches all comes down to pillows! New pillows can do a few things for your bedroom. First, new fluffy pillows can breathe new life into a tired-looking bed. Plus, pillows are easily switchable, so you can swap out cases and textures as you’d like!
There are a few that we love for new bedroom design! If you want something extra-fluffy, you’ll love our Canadian Hutterite Down Pillow, and a little more structure (plus extra softness) calls for our Refined Pillow.
