1. Select the right bed

The centrepiece of any bedroom is the bed—it’s a cosy nest for romance and intimacy while also providing quality comfort for sleep. Choose an investment-worthy piece with a plush headboard, like the Edra Stand by Me Bed, designed by Italian designer Francesco Binfare.

The stylish bed features simple lines and proportions that offer a contemporary form. The headboard is formed from two of Edra’s Smart Cushions: soft and voluminous padding with joints made from special materials that allow you to effortlessly shape it into any position you’d like.

2. Layer up

Selecting the right textile materials will create a warm and inviting feeling within the bedroom. Natural and woven fabrics, such as the sustainably-sourced organic cotton textiles from the Pierre Frey Natecru collection, lends a cosy touch.

If you’re looking for a quick way to spice up the interiors of your room, turn to patterned pieces like the Interferens fabric from Danish textile company Kvadrat. The jacquard woven fabric helps create visual interest and offers a layered and eclectic look.

3. Snuggle on a sofa

Adding a sofa to the bedroom offers an alternate space where you and your significant other can spend time together and have meaningful conversations. Opt for a two-seater sofa or a love-seat that’s comfortable and versatile. The Francesca loveseat from Casamilano offers a refined look with its soft curves and rounded proportions.

4. Lighting matters

Lighting is key to setting the mood within your bedroom. Illuminate your space with stylish bedside lamps, such as the Louis Poulsen Panthella table lamps. The opal acrylic shade allows the lamp to emit soft, diffused light, while its whimsical silhouette adds a playful touch to the room.

5. Add cheerful accents

Lift the spirit in your bedroom with decorative objects that will add a personalised touch. Vitra’s Resting Bear makes for a quirky and vibrant addition; the knit-covered hibernating bear is designed for a variety of uses, including as a stool, ottoman or backrest.
