How To Turn Your Bedroom Into The Ultimate Space To Unwind

Our bedroom is one of my favourite rooms in the house; it’s really the one room I insist on being clutter free and tidy all the time, so no chair of doom covered in half worn clothes, and (for the most part) no overflowing washing basket in the corner. I need a calm, relaxing and clean space that I can curl up with a book before bed and not have thoughts running through my mind of all the things that need to be done.

I’m positive it’s to the disdain of Kane, but I believe the more cushions and throws, the better. Layering them up just adds to the cosiness and comfort, and seriously who doesn’t want to put down their phone a little earlier and dive into something like that? It’s so important to be able to switch off and get a good night’s sleep, so creating the perfect space to do that is essential.

JYSK have a beautiful range of home accessories that have helped me put together my perfect bedroom haven. If you haven’t heard of JYSK before, they’re a Scandinavian brand that keep a nod to their Danish roots throughout all their designs. They kindly sent over a few things to complete the look, including the KONGSSPIR Faux Fur throw in a beautiful dusky pink shade that is made out of the snuggliest material ever – that’s an actual term, right?!

I’m a bit particular about my pillows and cushions; we have one large pillow at the back, a smaller feather pillow at the front, with two matching cushions and one in the center. The MYGGBLOM Faux Fur cushions in grey are a perfect pair for this, and the super soft material adds to the cosiness again. I’ve paired it with the TUNBENDEL cushion, with matches with the throw nicely and adds a bit of pink to the bedroom without being too much. 

Of course it’s not all about bedding and accessories, a nice decor and candles are essential for creating the perfect atmosphere too. The ANTON Candle has such a fresh, clean scent that is really relaxing, and as I seem to be capable of keeping plants alive everywhere but our bedroom, we paired a couple of the smoked grey VISTI vases with some fake eucalyptus to add a bit of greenery to the space. The brass FRITS tray is the perfect size for having a little breakfast in bed, and when you do eventually have to get up, it’ll be a lot easier with the comfort of the HORN faux fur rug underfoot.
