The Bedroom

by my bedside

Sanjeev and I work from home on most days of the week. So I try to keep the rooms of my home a bit inspiring yet relaxing. I had been contemplating re-doing Β our bedroom since many weeks now. I decided to go with the earthy tones this time. As much as I’d love to have white sheets at home, I don’t find them practical.

I like more soothing colors in the shades of taupes, pistachio, cream, sea blue, peaches etc for the bedroom. They sort of look peaceful to me.Β 

This was my thought process while doing the room. πŸ™‚

  • I went with earthy toned for bedsheets, pillow covers etc. Added a bit of color byΒ incorporatingΒ peach shade through pillows so that it does not get too brown(y).
  • Earlier we had two pillows in the room, I added two more. Great companions while reading.
  • There is an extra blanket kept on top of the duvet so that it comes handy for carrying it to the living room or just in case it gets too cold at night.
  • The little patterns on the duvet cover keep things a bit interesting around the room.
  • Β I removed the bulky side table and got a lighter round table for the bed side. This helps keep the clutter away. Also, instead of a heavy side lamp, I went ahead with the candles. Love candles . πŸ˜€
  • On the bed is a breakfast table that we bought many years ago. That sort of compliments the wood of the bed and the side table.
I am yet to do the other elements of the room. I am pretty happy with how it has started. πŸ™‚
So how is your bedroom? Would love to hear your ideas. πŸ™‚

    Loved the earthy tones of your bedroom.. Candles in the bedroom are so much better than lamps. But I’m scared of keeping candles near my bed πŸ™‚ Now that I think of it, my bedroom actually looks like a seaworld with varying tones of aqua and blue colours in almost everything! I threw in a few large sea shells too πŸ™‚

    • Rati says:

      The candles are quite tiny actually and they are kept a little far off from the bed. Plus I light them only in evening. So it sort of works. :)) hihih do share the piccys of your room . It would be fun to see. :))

    Love that breakfast table. The ageing wood gives it a personality. πŸ˜‰ And I like the whole cozy and inviting look that your bedroom gives, like the kind of place where you’d go to relax and hide from the world. πŸ˜€ Very pretty cushion cover too. I love such simplistic designs.

    We just got our house repainted and despite the fact that my bedroom’s smell is giving me a sore throat right now, I love the sunshine yellow paint we got for it. My room is colder than usual in winter and I am glad that at least the sunny colour will make me shiver less. πŸ˜› And my parents so were tired of me pushing things against the wall and affecting the paint that they got a gorgeous golden embossed wallpaper lining a whole chunk of my room’s wall. πŸ˜€ If only I didn’t have to work like a house elf and set my whole room right, I’d be quite blissful right now. πŸ˜›

    • Rati says:

      hihihih the little bling in the room sounds so cute. Good luck setting up your oom. Do share a piccy if you can. would love to see how you do. :))

      thankoo πŸ™‚

    The Master bedroom is mostly black wood including the bed frame,dressing table, frame of the dressing mirror, my wardrobes and a little square table where I have put up a framed foto of mine ( how modest of me right?:)). The curtains of the attached round balcony are golden’ish cream. The bed sheets r usually dark brown with cream coloured pillows. To add a dash of. Color I have kept a shiny red hat on the square table. The rest of house is mostly yellow (incl. the kitchen) with one brightly coloured purple wall in the living room.

    • Rati says:

      you know I went through bright colors and animal print phase. They started screaming at me and I got back to soft colors in my room. hihih πŸ˜› They sort of keep me peaceful. But I do like bright colors ere and there in my home. :))

    Loved the Decor .. I find earthy tones very relaxing and soothing… My parents room have earthy tones walls bedsheets..Mine is pinky girly this time πŸ˜€ Agreed, white sheets are not practical plus I feel they don’t that give that homely cozy feeling πŸ™‚

    • Rati says:

      yeah and especially if you have white sheets at home too, what would you be looking forward to to at hotels. πŸ˜› πŸ˜›
