When it comes to our slumber spaces, quality counts. After all, if the average night’s sleep is eight hours, then one sleeps for a third of one’s life.
Granted, for many of us, eight hours of sleep is but a distant dream, which makes it even more important to favour quality over quantity in the bedroom. Because, the busier our waking lives are, the more important the role of this sacred space to help us rest and recharge.
In 2018, functionality is key in the bedroom, which begs the question, how do we incorporate form and function here?
For a soothing space, decorate in soothing shades of lilac and grey or blue and pink. Tactile and textured fabrics will promote comfort and sleep-promoting scents such as lavender always have a home in the bedroom.
We’re taking a less is more approach to the space overall; less technology, less decorative elements and less clutter. Conservative design with modern clean lines continues to define the contemporary bedroom furniture market this year, while the wabi-sabi philosophy continues to reign supreme.
An easy, carefree concept to apply, wabi-sabi is about the beauty that can be found in imperfection. Life isn’t perfect, our homes aren’t perfect – and that’s okay.
We’ve put together a mood board of the things that sweet dreams are made of.
