10 Ways to create an indulgent, relaxing retreat in your home

1 - Indulge in fresh, white bed sheets

2 - Keep your space clean & tidy

Your bathroom & bedroom should be a haven away from the world to unwind, relax & cocoon yourself as you rest. Decluttering these spaces can reduce stress levels, provide less distractions while you sleep and can improve your overall health and happiness.

3 -  Think symmetry

A subtle way to elevate your sleep space is by making your decor symmetrical. Try using matching bedside lighting, such as lamps or wall lights, and coordinating them with matching side tables. This will help to frame your bed for a look that's aesthetically pleasing & easy on the eye. 

For a more relaxed look, experiment with your bedside accessories by using a slightly bigger lamp on one side and balancing it with a tall floor plant on the other. 

4 - Layer with bedspreads & throws

Whether you're looking for an extra layer of warmth, to couple up with bedsheets during the warmer months, or to enhance your hotel-style, layering your bed with bedspreads and throws is a wonderful way to add a touch of style to your bedroom.

Made with super soft pure cotton, our classic Waffle Cotton bedspread feels wonderfully soft and comforting to the touch. It acts as a light layer so you can move freely during the night for a more restful sleep. Its relaxed style & waffle texture add interest to your room with neutral tones and a matte finish, making it suitable for a wide range of bedroom styles to elevate your restful retreat.

5 - Include a seating area

Adding an extra seat in your bedroom can create a unique space for you to relax & unwind. Think cosy reading corners, small armchairs or a even window seat if you have the space!

As well as creating a hotel-style in your bedroom, making your bathroom a relaxing space is just as important.

6 - Keep your home smelling fresh

Your relaxation space should feel like a sanctuary for the senses. Tap into this by using essential oils & burning gently scented candles. Pillow sprays are also a great way to help you relax & drift off into a blissful slumber.
