Blissful Boudoirs

Your bedroom is definitely the most personal of rooms in a house, and a room that is often not seen by your guests, apart from your guest bedrooms of course!  In true Butterfly Lane style I think a muted colour palette works so well in a bedroom.  

Muted Bedroom

Life is so chaotic and you are exposed so much mental stimulation on a day-to-day basis.  If like myself you are logged on to social media, checking emails and attached to a laptop and iPhone all day long for work, and also for organising your social life, it is not surprising that increasing numbers of people are finding it harder and harder to have a good nights sleep.  I am trying my very best to switch off my laptop and mobile at 10pm and then focus on less stimulating things like catching up with reading magazines, something non-taxing.  But I also think it helps to have a beautifully chilled out boudoir that calms and relaxes and in which case guarantees a peaceful nights sleep.  After all it is your retreat at the end of the day, a cool and airy place in spring and summer and a cosy cocoon in autumn and winter. 

Required Items for a Gorgeous Bedroom

The Bed

So obviously this room should include a bed!  This one is particularly special.

I love lots of cushions in differing styles, textures and tones as a stylish feature on a bed.  Something that men (well, let me re-phase that, men that I know), just simply do not understand.  But most women will agree that an array of cushions finish the room off perfectly.  Don't forget a throw, I love fabrics like velvet, cashmere and fur, the epitome of luxury.

Bedside Tables

Bedside tables are a necessity for a bedroom, to place a lamp, alarm clock, scented candle, vase of flowers or picture frame...the options are endless.  But just remember to not make them look too cluttered, so here are Butterfly Lane's top picks for chic accessories for a bedside table.
