The master bedroom is probably the most ignored room in my house when it comes to style. In our old house, the master bedroom was upstairs with all of the kids’ rooms, so aside from the hours we spent sleeping and getting ready for the day, we really weren’t up there much. But in the Dream House, the master bedroom is on the main floor (and oh my gosh, I LOVE IT!), so I actually spend quite a bit of time in there. Since my office in the basement is still a work in progress, when I have time to work, I go to my bedroom. When I have phone calls or video conferences, I go to my bedroom. If I just need a second to relax, I go to my bedroom.
At the end of a long hard day there is nothing better than lying down on fresh bedding and crisp sheets, but how many of us have a conducive interior style in the bedroom? It’s hard to design a bedroom that is stylish yet functional and calming without making it look like a soulless showhome. We all know the importance of a good night’s sleep but do we realise how much the interior can impact this? The LuxPad spoke to design bloggers and interior experts to get their top tips and advice on bedroom styles that will look great and provide you with the relaxing haven that you need.

Updating your bedroom each season really doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. Anyone who knows me well, knows I like expediency, simplicity and of course to do things without spending a lot of money. I also love to swap my bedding every few seasons to refresh our bedroom. That said, I know not everyone else does! I have a little bit of an obsession with changing our bedding and I do change is quite often. This spring however, I kept things very simple, and I decided to use our latest bedding set from Christmas (see it here) – a crisp and tailored white duvet set, with a soft and elegant french blue border. Anyone who knows me well, also knows how much I love to use blue in our home, so I’ve amped it up with a vibrant dose of my favourite hue to brighten things up for spring. I didn’t spend much at all in here, everything you see, I already own except for my beautiful new faux blue hydrangeas. I love these so much and love how cheerful they feel in here. They’re going to be on prominent display all over our home this spring – so keep your eye open for the rest of my spring content coming soon! In the mean time, you can keep reading for my master bedroom decorating tips that I’ve incorporated in here this spring.
Last spring, I used a beautiful navy blue chinoiserie print duvet set mixed with tailored white and navy hotel bedding for a chic, layered look (see it here). This year, I went a little more simple and pared-down. I’ve had white bedding as a base in our bedroom now for the last year, and it creates the perfect backdrop for adding layers. That said, the two different sets of white bedding I do have, both have a border detail that ups the visual anti just a little bit. I personally always love a little extra detail of color to make a subtle statement.
