When your bedroom is the only space in your home that is truly yours, selfishness is encouraged! Whether you’ve got a lot of space to work with, or are living life on the smaller side, go all out to make your bedroom as personal as possible – a curatorial slice of “you” pie.
That collection of vintage movie posters your housemates just don’t appreciate. Or your super delicate heirloom tea set you don’t trust anyone else to use. Your bedroom is the place to display and enjoy your favourite things! Of course, maybe your favourite things aren’t “things” at all. If activities are more up your street, a sofa can be a wonderful addition to your bedroom – perfect for private hangout sessions with friends or an hour or three with an engrossing book.
If your room has a smaller footprint, pick a bed frame with space below for storage. Better yet, pair it with an underbed storage/bedside table. Just roll it out when bedtime calls and roll it back under when you wake up!
If you’re creating a bedroom that is all about you, then your bed can epitomise that. Even if you're working with a tight budget, pick out linen that invites you in, whether in print, texture, or both.
Introducing both open and closed storage makes for a great mix of practical and personal. In this bedroom, the wardrobe offers both: drawers and boxes for underwear, socks and seasonal clothing, and open racks and shelves to show off a colourful, stripey curation of favourites.
