Snooze in style: traditional opulence
16 Monday Jul 2012
We hosted another great Inspiration Session this past Saturday! The session was about designing your ideal sleeping space, and we’ve got you covered. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that your bedroom is least important just because your eyes are closed a lot of the time you’re in there. On the contrary my friends – high drama and extravagant design can bring you the best rest. Here are a few ways to introduce opulence into your bedroom decor:
Don’t blow your cover – When you’re undercover, make it the most lavish cover possible. This is no place for modesty. Try bedding with gold cording, beading and embroidery to lay the foundation for opulence. Whatever you choose, don’t forget the pillows! You can’t have too many pillows! The bed is the center of attention in a bedroom so the linens must be lavish to create a dramatic effect.
Get that special glow – Add candescent elements to the room. You can wrap a lamp shade in fabric to create a soft glow, or go with the tried-and-true candlelight. But since you’re a queen, you could opt for remote control pillar candles. This way, you won’t have to lift anything but a finger to make the night time the right time.
Be detail oriented – Detailed furniture is most divine in an opulent bedroom. Opt for furniture pieces that don hand-carved details, curved fronts and antiqued brass hardware. Mix these with mirrored and marble accents and your space is the epitome of opulence.
Check back tomorrow for tips on how to add a little French romance to your sleeping space. Our next Inspiration Session is on August 11. Let us know if you’ll be attending so we can save you a spot.
