With Instagram becoming an amazing source of interior inspiration, more and more of you are creating home accounts and getting stuck in with a rapidly growing community of interior lovers.
But how do you get that Insta-worthy bedroom shot without spending thousands on re-decorating (or having enough followers to get everything gifted to you)? We've got a few tips and inspiration from some of our amazing customers, plus some insider secrets from our Stylist to help you create that Insta-worthy bedroom.
The first style we're looking at is super easy to achieve and requires little more than a simple velvet bed and a muted feature wall.
Choosing a great quality headboard with subtle detailing is the key to creating a calming bedroom interior. Our Turin and Paolo Beds both have super soft velvet upholstery and subtle yet very effective details.
The Turin has a neat pipe around the headboard, while the Paolo has a subtle stitch detail and gentle wings to create a cosy cocoon feel.
The soft feather grey velvet of both the Turin and Paolo work so well against muted wall colours due to its warmer undertones. Choose a colour with a slight grey tint to create that calming and serene atmosphere.
When styling a bedroom like this, choose natural woods or stick to simple white furniture so as to not distract from your statement wall and super soft bed. Try to avoid too many clashing textures- a chunky throw at the end of the bed will help soften the look, but stick to one or two textures to keep your space calm.
Stylists Top Tip: When creating a calming bedroom, always choose warmer tones and stick to a very simple colour palette. Avoid using too many different colours as this can create a visually stimulating space, which is not ideal for a bedroom.
Mid-century styled spaces are still huge in the world of interiors, with new twists always appearing to create a more modern look. This gorgeous bedroom from @appleton2plus_morrishomes has just the right amount of mid-century styling with the side tables and lamps, while the Amalfi bed in Peacock brings that modern twist.
You can be more playful with prints and textures in a mid century style home. Pair geometrics with tribal prints to really mix things up. Remember to keep your prints focused to one area, and let the design of your furniture do the rest of the talking.
Get The Look:
Maximalism is becoming more and more popular in our homes, with many of us seeking out ways to make our homes more personal. (Find out more about maximalist style here). However, use a toned down version of maximalism in your bedroom to ensure this remains a calming and relaxing zone.
@lifeatno.15 has perfected a subtle maximalist look but pairing an oversized floral mural wallpaper with a super soft and silky velvet bed.
By choosing wallpaper in a bold print but with harmonious colours creates a calming vibe while remaining a true style statement. For an extra element to your maximalist style, choose a larger bed to make more of a design statement.
Stylist Top Tip: Pick out one or two colours from a bold wallpaper to use throughout the room. The colours you choose here will greatly affect the overall style. For example, @lifeatno.15 has pulled out the blush pink and grey to create a soft, feminine look. However, if she had chosen the subtle shades of cream and green this look overall would be much more muted and minimal.

When it comes to getting a good nights sleep, we're all guilting of not paying enough attention to the little things that make a huge difference.
In this blog, we're going to teach two things. The first will be how to declutter your bedroom and create a calming, serene environment. The second will be our top 10 tips, tried and tested, to getting a great nights sleep, ensuring you wake up refreshed and energised to be productive and live life to the fullest.
The first thing to do when it comes to clearing out your bedroom is to look at the furniture you have in your space. If your room is a riot of mismatched furniture filling every available corner, it's going to
Before we get into the detail of the general "clutter" we have in our bedrooms, we need to make the space as simple, clean-lined and efficient as possible. That bench at the end of your bed may look great, but if it's not serving a purpose it's taking up space and feeling messy.
In your bedroom, regardless of size, all you need is the following:
If you have
It's key to keep your furniture unfussy and neutral. Although that pink painted dresser with gold inlay looks amazing, it's not going to do your head much good when you're trying to relax. Instead, stick to soft neutrals and natural textures. If you want to introduce a splash of colour, save this for your bed or bedding, and keep the rest simple.
As we tend to have a lot of stuff in our bedrooms, be sure to look for clever storage solutions in your furniture. Think about bedside tables with drawers, Fitted wardrobes or a bed with hidden storage.
We're going to focus on beds, as there is a wide array of different options you can choose which have maximum storage to suit any look you're after.
If you prefer a lighter look, choose a bed with enough clearance under to fit handy under-bed storage boxes. Just be sure to choose good quality storage boxes, as these will be seen.
Clear boxes seem like a great idea but you will be showing off the clutter. Instead, opt for a solid colour box or white drawer on wheels to keep your room looking simple and de-cluttered.
Our Hector Bed is a great option if you want to stick to a streamlined look but be able to store things under your bed. If you want to keep your space open you can explore other storage solutions, otherwise this bed is a great option for minimal storage.
The Mellow Bed is also great for under-bed storage, but makes a little more of a statement with its plush velvet curved headboard.
If you want a bit more depth and easy access storage, think about a divan bed with drawers. Our Myla bed is fully velvet, so not only looks great, but also means you can quickly and easily access anything tucked away in the handy drawers.
Historically a divan bed means you need a slightly dated and tricky to use valance. The beauty of our Myla bed, and all of our

Built-in drawers are great for storing clothes, shoes or extra bedding as you can quickly and easily get whatever you need without crawling under the bed. whats more- your bits will be protected from dust keeping them clean and fresh.
Finally, most popular in our bed range is the storage bed. You maximise your storage space by having
Again, this type or storage is ideal for extra bedding and towels if your home doesn't have an airing cupboard, or to keep your summer wardrobe clean and fresh during those long winter months.
The Amalfi, Manolo and Turin beds are ideal options for maximum storage. Simple lift the slatted base to access your bits and bobs.
Our storage beds have been carefully and thoughtfully constructed using high quality hydraulic pistons, allowing for a smooth and sturdy opening. This means you can easily lift your bed up without taking the full weight, and that your bed will stay up without you having to hold it up.
Now you have your furniture and storage sorted, lets look at what we can clear out from our bedrooms.
What do you use your room for? I'd imagine it's for sleeping, relaxing and getting dressed. The only things we should keep in our rooms are:
Top Tip: Keep your bedside tables clear by choosing pendant lamps. This will free up your surface, making it feel less cluttered.
That should be all you need in your bedroom. Anything else, either clear it out or think logically and store in a more suitable room, like the kitchen, living room or study.
A high quality, comfy bed is a must for getting a good nights sleep. There are a few key features to look out for which will result in a comfortable bed, and therefore a great nights sleep.
All of our bed frames have sprung slats that have been designed to increase the overall comfort of the bed. This is because your bed frame is effectively helping your mattress be in the best, most supportive position. Sprung slats are a really premium and considered feature that will help you get the most out of your bed and mattress.
You also want to make sure you have a really high quality, comfortable mattress. A pocket sprung mattress offers optimal comfort and stability, and usually comes in a variety of different firmness's.
Where possible you should try to test a mattress before you buy, but if you're buying online, check the returns policy carefully!
For extra comfort or to update an older mattress, look at investing in a mattress topper. These are available in many different materials, from memory foam to feather. Whatever you choose you'll be adding an extra layer of comfort and support to your bed.

Top Tip: Offset dark walls with white bedding and light textures. Choosing lighter elements will lift the room and make your chosen colour really stand out.The Rene Bed in Midnight Velvet sits beautifully against our Black Blue wall, as the curves of the headboard pick up light and add depth and tone. If, for example, you had a dark blue fabric headboard against a nearly black wall, it could look flat and lacking in interest. The way the velvet picks up the light helps to show the shape of the bed, drawing your focus here, rather than the dark walls.
Top Tip: Pendant lights work great as bedside lamps. They will keep your side tables clear while creating a style statement.
