 Handcrafted With Love: Why Antique Beds Are The Best

Romantic, Elegant, Timeless.

There’s something mysterious about the antique bed because you can’t help but wonder who’s slept in there before you, not on the same mattress obviously, and what kind of life did they lead? These beds are now so popular that modern replica’s, old in style only, are continually being made but what sets an antique style bed apart from the rest and why should you want one?


Flawless Craftsmanship


It’s common knowledge that years ago if something broke, or was damaged in some way you couldn't just order a replacement online. Instead, you had to fix it yourself. Furniture especially was designed to last, employing master artisans to create fabulously intricate pieces that would stand the test of time. Often, bespoke and specialist bedmakers of revival beds will still use traditional techniques, certain woods and trade secret skills. Years of expert knowledge have helped ...

 It Starts In The Bedroom: Design Tips To Boost Your Well-Being 



Image Source


For most of us, the day begins and ends in our bedroom. It’s the room we spend the most time in, so it stands to reason that it impacts on our  well-being. Research suggests that our mental health is affected by our immediate surroundings. Therefore, it’s worth investing some time in creating a comfortable bedroom that is conducive to rest and happiness.


The Bed


Sleep affects our health. If we sleep deeply each night and manage around seven hours, it’s likely the effects will be positive. However, if we fall short of this or if the quality of our sleep is affected, it can have serious consequences. Lack of sleep is associated with obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Serious lack of sleep can also shorten life expectancy. If we’re sleep deprived we don’t feel our best, and we certainly can’t perform at optimum levels. So it’s common ...

 Give Your Guests the Creature Comforts They Deserve 




You know what it’s like when staying overnight with friends or family; when you’re too far away from home to get a cab and you get an offer to crash in the guest room. However good your hosts’ intentions, many guest rooms are rather like the last bastion of the damned; home to relics from the rest of the house and a bit lacking in love. If you want to spare your guests that sinking feeling that comes from realising they will be spending the night on a glorified lilo, swathed in the kids’ cast-off Peppa Pig covers, fear not! It is actually surprisingly easy and uncostly to kit out your spare room in a style worthy of the people you like enough to put up for the night!

 

You don’t have to spend a fortune or have bags of space to get your guest room up ...

 Night shades: what does the colour of your bedroom say about you? 



The colours we choose to decorate our homes reveal more about us than we may realise — and while we may be partly influenced by current styles and trends, there are deeper forces at work.


How about the colours we choose for our bedrooms — that most intimate of spaces. What do those choices in particular reveal?


Gill Burn is an interior designer and owner of Sussex-based professional home decorating company Lady Decorators. Here Gill shares her expertise and insights on colour choices for the bedroom. Her extensive experience of both home decorating and design has given her in-depth knowledge of colour theory and an instinctive feel for colour palettes.

 Spring décor ideas for the bedroom 



Spring is a great time to redecorate and freshen up the whole house, but especially the bedroom. After spending a lot more time in there than in the rest of the year, winter can sometimes make us feel like our bedroom is a little cave after staying in hibernating forever. But once spring is on its way, with the glorious light mornings and promise of having the airy windows open, there’s no better time to reinvigorate some life into your nest. Here’s two of the main spring décor trend ideas to get you inspired:


Minimalism

70’s minimalism is still very in and looks set to be a hit throughout 2016. Often this is seen in the living space of a house but it can be easily incorporated into the bedroom with a little thought. Think 70’s style wooden furniture against minimal decoration. Plain walls in a white or ...

 Space saving solutions in the bedroom #DoItDifferently 


php/Carpetright Beds.jpg

‘Space’ has become unprecedentedly significant for us in recent years – not the unimaginable vastness that surrounds our earth and the whole universe – but the limited area at our disposal in the name of our living space or home. As the time passes by, living space is getting more and more confined. Under such circumstances, it is really important for us to furnish our homes with space saving furniture.

One of the best things about home furnishing trends is that home furniture has not only become stylish and comfortable, but space saving as well. To help you come up with some unique ideas on furniture for small bedrooms, here are 5 Space Saving Ideas to Get the Most of Your Small Bedroom:

 What Type of Wardrobe Is Best for Your Bedroom? 


php/HomeBase Wardrobes.png

The two most important things in a bedroom are the bed and the wardrobe. For the first one, finding the right balance of style and comfort is easy. As for the second one, things are a little different. There are lots of things to take into consideration before choosing a design or a style. 

Customers need to select a wardrobe based on several factors, including storage needs, room size, and personal style. Some wardrobes require contracting a company to build them, while others can be found in furniture shops or through online websites like Homebase. Explore all the many different options before purchasing a wardrobe for yourself.

Measuring for a Wardrobe

Before you buy a wardrobe, measure the available area. Most homeowners choose to install their wardrobe in an alcove inside their bedroom, but you can pick whichever area suits you best. Make sure there is enough length and height for the wardrobe, and ...

 Transform your bedroom from 'Shabby' to 'Chic' 



Your bedroom has to be the most important room of your home,  it is the room where you go to reenergise, to rest and relax, so its decor needs to reflect this and it needs to be a peaceful haven of whimsical tranquillity that will help send you swiftly and sweetly into the land of dreams.


So why is it then that the bedroom is often one of the most neglected rooms in the house?  Unfortunately it tends to be the case among many of us that because the bedroom is probably one the least visited rooms in the house it gets the least attention when it comes to redecoration.  However, this is wrong and it is really important to have your bedroom inviting and beautiful, because it is the room you go to when you want to shut the door on the hustle and bustle of the world.  ...

  • One in five couples have had arguments over wardrobe space
  • A third of women admit to throwing away an item of their partners clothing because they didn’t like it or they needed the space

  • 36% of UK adults admit to not changing bedsheets when guests come to stay
  • 8% have never stayed overnight in someone else’s house
  • People of Scotland most generous hosts in UK and offer best breakfast

 


When it comes to making guests feel welcome in our homes, it seems many of us are failing in our duties as hosts with 36% of people admitting that they don’t even change the bedsheets when they have guests coming to stay. Those aged between 18 – 24 were the laziest hosts with 57% leaving the old sheets on the bed for their guests according to a survey by Dreams[1], Britain’s leading bed specialist.


Despite being the laziest hosts, the younger age group were also the most ungrateful houseguests. Nearly a quarter of people in this age group complained that their hosts didn’t give them ...

 8 Tips tp Turn Your Bedroom Into Your Personal Paradise 



As we get older, the bedroom stops being our go-to spot (apart from for certain things, obviously). While it is still an ever-constant safe-haven, its role is no longer to be a refuge during difficult teenage years. In adulthood, more care and attention has to go into it than posters torn from magazines plastered all over the walls. You may not spend as much time in there as your living room, but that hardly means less effort should go into its decoration.


1. Plants

Just something small. Plants give fresh air to a room, which makes for a better night sleep and . Usually, a garden is said to be the reflection of its owners idea of paradise. Why not bring that into the area you're supposed to feel the safest? Be sure your room has ventilation, though. Otherwise cons could outweigh positives with the tiny amount of CO2 emitted during respiration. ...
