Bedroom styling tips with rugs:“If you have used a contrasting dark rug as your base it’s likely that you’ve already made a big impact, so complement this by carefully selecting some softer, beautiful elements,” suggests Alexandra.Don’t forget, adds Alexandra, “the size of the rug – often overlooked – is of equal importance to the actual rug selected.” An overspill of rug “creates the illusion of more space, excess, and luxury” and, of course, “it’s always nice to be able to sink your toes into a plush wool rug first thing in the morning!”
However, not many people dare to add this brilliant colour to their bedrooms, as they’re too scared that it might overwhelm the space. And if there’s one space in the house that needn’t be overwhelmed, it’s the bedroom, since its main purpose is to calm and relax us.
Not sure if you want to take a huge leap with red in your bedroom? Red accents is your answer. Bring in this spirited tone via a bold rug, an accent chair, beautiful bedding, scatter cushions, or even lampshades. If you’re happy with the first few options, continue this approach by adding more pieces (in other red hues) over time. But similar to the red accent wall, use the colour in more than one place to really get the right feel for it (and to see how it looks in various light) before making your final decision.
Alongside their wellbeing benefits, Alana says, “plants can help create a sanctuary; a place to relax, unwind and recharge after a long day on the clock.”
