Are you bored of your bedroom? Do you wish it was a little more luxurious than the basically functional room it is now? Do you believe your bedroom should be as glamorous as that of a Hollywood star? This is the post for you. Read on to find out how you can transform your boring bedroom into a beautiful boudoir…
The Richer, the Better
One of the easiest ways to transform your bedroom into a glamorous boudoir is painting the walls. You want your walls to be as rich and opulent as they can possibly be to provide the perfect backdrop for glamour. That means using rich, deep reds, yellows, purple and greens – the kind of colors that you would see in the average stately home in the UK or five-star hotel where the rich and famous hang out in the US. You don’t necessarily have to use such colors on every wall – although that will make your room way more luxurious – you could just use it on a feature wall and leave the others white. If you’re going to do that, the wall immediately behind the bed is a good place to add your color.
Monochrome is Amazing
If you aren’t much into color, then you can easily achieve a more glamorous look in the bedroom by going for the monochrome option. Using a black and white color scheme with hints of chrome or mirrored furniture is a basic, but extremely effective way to transform a dull room into an amazingly sophisticated one.
You Can’t Have Too Much Texture
You might not think that glamour and comfort go hand in hand, but when you’re in the bedroom, they make surprisingly good bedfellows. The more different textures you use in the bedroom, the more luxurious it will feel. So, fill the room with soft Egyptian cotton sheets, sumptuous silk curtains, faux fur rugs and huge satin pillows. Don’t be afraid to mix colors and patterns and you will come up with a room that screams opulence.
Make Room for a Mirrored Dressing Table
Every glamorous woman needs an equally glamorous dressing table in her room where she can keep her perfumes and potions and do her makeup in the morning, and it’s fair to say that it doesn’t get more glamorous than an elegant mirrored dressing table. Be sure to match it with the bedside tables for a deliciously decadent look.
Perfume Bottles are Perfect
While we’re on the subject of your dressing table, not only should you upgrade it for a more luxurious one, but you should also throw out those commercial perfume and beauty product bottles (unless they’re already beautiful) and replace them with pretty crystal and glass bottles. This is a small thing, but it will make a world of difference.
Four-Poster is Fabulous
If you’re going for the ultimate in bedroom glamour, then you simply must have a four-poster bed. Hang delicate silk curtains around it and invest in the best sheets you can afford for a decadent centerpiece that looks as good as it feels.
That’s how you turn your bedroom from drab to fab in no time at all!
