Want your bedroom to be more of a boudoir? The kind of place you could imagine a Hollywood starlet of times gone by reclining in all of her splendour? Well, here are some tips to help get you going glam in the bedroom.
INVEST IN A PLUSH HEADBOARD
One of the easiest ways to make your bedroom seem immediately more glamorous is to invest in a plush, luxurious headboard. Whether you go for a simple, yet sophisticated velvet affair, or a big, bold padded leather board, there’s one thing for as sure, a luxury headboard will bring more than a hunt of the boudoir to your bedroom.
Gold is perhaps the most glamorous of all colours when it comes to home decor, not only because it looks expensive in itself, but also because it is great at reflecting the light and diffusing it around the room to great effect. So, whether you invest in a gold bedside table for each side of the bed, a rose gold dressing table for all of your lotions and potions, or a beautiful gold chandelier to really add some drama to space, don’t forget to add some gold if you want to add the glamour.
A really simple way of adding some glam to your bedroom is to invest in lots of little antique perfume bottles in various styles, colours and shapes. The ones made from real glass and metal are the best. Simply arrange these on a dressing table or even a window ledge, for some effortless glam. Antique stores are a great place to find these, but op-shops can be a surprisingly good source too.
Whether it’s flock wallpaper, a velvet wall panel or a dramatic floral feature wall, adding expensive wallpaper to your bedroom is a great way to bring the glamour. Of course, not every wallpaper will hit the glamorous note you are looking for so, be careful in your choices and go for shades of black, dark purple, and opulent red if you want to get it right. You could also go for gold, and these days, it is even possible to get glittery wallpaper, which is ideal for a glamorous, yet playful look.
No glamorous bedroom would be complete without at least one big bouquet of flowers brimming with roses, lilies or whatever your favourite blooms happen to be so be sure to make regular trips to the florist. Not only will they look great but they’ll add a real heady aroma to your bedroom, which will be simply irresistible, too.
Satin sheets really do help to make any bedroom feel more luxurious, and they feel amazing in your skin too, so you’re going to want to get a set or two. White is classic, but don’t be afraid to shake it up with aubergine, black, or whatever you fancy really.
Everyone deserves a bit of glamour in their lives, and when it comes to the bedroom, as you can see, it is really easy going glam in the bedroom.
