Creating a Tranquil Bedroom

As a mother of three young children my bedroom is my little retreat. It's somewhere I can't wait to get to at the end of a busy day and while sleep is still fleeting in our house, creating a calm, welcoming environment in my bedroom is something that is really important to me. 

We have been in our house six years now and are finally making a start on putting our own stamp on it now that I am back at work and we have the budget to do so. Our bedroom is something that I'd really like to focus on this year to create a tranquil, grown up place in our home that is truly ours.

Colour wise I love light and airy neutrals which create a sense of space and light such as white, light grey and stone. We are lucky to have large windows which let in lots of light and are a real focal point in the room as we wake up facing them each morning. The way you dress your windows can completely transform a room so with this in mind I would like to make a feature of ours by adding some shutters and voile curtains like these from Yorkshire Linen. I have visions of them gently blowing in the breeze in the morning and moving slowly and peacefully on warm hazy summer nights, giving privacy but letting reams of light in.

Fabric is really important to me, particularly when it comes to bedding there truly is nothing nicer than getting into crisp, fresh line dried cotton sheets which I hope to upgrade to sumptuous White Company bed linen. I'd also love to dress our bed with throws and cushions to give it that boutique hotel feel which is just so special and luxurious as well as a cosy feel in Winter. Fitted wardrobes are also on my lust list to hide away any clutter along with a chaise lounges and an up cycled dressing table.

Accessorising a room is always my favourite part of a revamp, black and white photos of our wedding, flowers, fairy lights and scented candles to add a romantic element are just some of my ideas to add tranquillity to the space. I've collated all my ideas on a Pinterest mood board and would love to know what you think:
