Your bedroom is one of the most personal and important rooms in your home. It’s a place to unwind and relax in preparation for the next day, which is important in our busy, stressful modern lives.
We all deserve a little luxury, so we as an estate agents in Wimbledon have put together a list of the top five luxury bedroom ideas to inspire you to transform your bedroom into your own private luxurious retreat.
Luxury and glamour are a match made in heaven. Think deep-pile carpet and textured patterned wallpaper along a single wall, with the rest of the room painted a complimentary colour – black and white is a glamorous combination that’s also bang on trend.
Fit a red velvet headboard to your bed to break up the monotone, and accessorise with red cushions and a plush black throw on your bed. Finish the room with a comfortable chair, footstools at the end of your bed and some ornate bedside lamps.
A Coastal Retreat
Blue is a calming, relaxing colour, so a coastal theme bedroom is the perfect retreat at the end of the day. Light blue walls and crisp white bedding and curtains give the room a fresh feeling, and an ocean-inspired blue throw and cushions give the bed a modern feel.
A 4-poster bed looks great in a coastal-themed room, and a chandelier adds a little bit of luxury.
Finally, add in additional colour with a yellow and white striped headboard, inspired by deckchairs and the good ole British beach hut.
Retro is back in fashion, but with a luxury twist for a little sophistication. Choose a 60s inspired colour combination, like orange and aqua, and apply it with style.
Choose a light aqua for your walls, and opt for patterned wallpaper on a single feature wall – behind your bed is a good choice. Keep your bedding a neutral white, but accessorise with retro patterned cushions and a retro throw. Finally, place a retro style chair in the corner and find a patterned lamp for your bedside table.
Inspired by the Tropics
Ever returned from a memorable holiday in a light, bright villa in the tropics and found your bedroom, well, a little drab in comparison? Then look to the tropics for inspiration next time you renovate.
Paint your room white, with a green textured feature wall, giving the impression of palm leaves. A British colonial-style 4-poster bed, with a white canopy and bedding fits perfectly with this theme, especially topped with white and green tropical style cushions. Install a window seat for gazing out, a large wicker chest and accessorise with plants.
A Splash of Colour
For a luxury room with a splash of colour, start neutral. Choose solid dark wooden furniture, and white walls, with a 4-poster bed at the centre. Then choose your colours.
Pick vibrant clashing colours with a colourful bedspread, topped with clashing coloured cushions, and hang bright prints around your walls. Finish with a colourful bunch of flowers on your bedside table for a happy, fun environment.
Your bedroom should be a worry-free, peaceful sanctuary. Use these tips as inspiration to turn yours into a relaxing, luxurious retreat.
