Master bedrooms are our refuge and what we need now. Always an important design area and over my many years I know not the first room tackled. Our Covid crisis and shelter in place confinement changes that. We live in all types of homes from single family to condos to owned or rented. Some small and some not so much. Still, this is where we spend (hopefully) 8 hours a night. These days our sleep is extra important for healing our minds and our bodies.
And in some instances, we may use it for work calls, add a desk and a chair, ottoman and lamp. Large, small and multi-purpose, I seek it to be an oasis of calm too.
I find clutter is disruptive in general and especially in a room for restoring oneself. Many years ago I listened to a speaker who also happened to be an experienced realtor say, “Begin your day by making your bed”. This wasn’t my typical daily activity..but I adopted it. Now that bed making gets me going and starts me out with focus and calm .
The Hospitality Industry introduced the concept of clean lines (less clutter) and great mattresses, sheets and pillows. Climbing into a bed that’s made with crisp sheets and great pillows sets my sleep pattern. Yes, my calm bed and sleep depends on a pillow suited to my sleep style. Recently I spoke to a client about pillow selection. SO many to choose from. And many opinions. My go-to is a company that is US made. Down Inc
With a dual background as both an interior designer and a psychologist, I focus my work on personalized spaces where my clients can live their best lives. And I am grateful for the opportunities to support lifestyles and passions.
What are you doing to establish a calm bedroom to restore? I’d enjoy hearing your ideas for calm.
