Tip 3: Get personal
While you want to create a useful but relaxing space, it also has to represent you as it’s the most intimate room of your home. I can’t advise on what this would be as it’s so personal, but for me – artwork and cushions is where I make the room feel like ours. It doesn’t need to cost the earth either – simply frame special cards, photos or create your own art, for example I made the heart art above our bed by gluing buttons to card and popping in an IKEA frame. If you’re looking for cushions with a bit of character, Etsy is a great place to start.
