How to Create a Peaceful Bedroom Setting

A few bedtime essentials

30 September 2021 -

Creating a space that feels beautiful isn’t just about the aesthetic.

More importantly, it’s about the feeling that you bring into your home and routine. 

We have been attempting to refine our rituals to find moments of peace, and today, we’re talking about ten little things that have helped us create a calming bedroom setting.

No. 1: Add a candle on the nightstand 

Curating an experience in a space is all about igniting the senses, and a candle is the perfect way to bring your favorite scent into a room. Something about a candle creates a warm ambient feeling to any space, and we style them in nearly every room.

No 2. Bringing in some life 

Greenery and florals can bring so much life into any space, and it’s the perfect way to introduce a subtle color to your styling. In the bedroom, we love adding a vase of flowers or a plant on the nightstand or dresser, or even a tree for texture.

No. 3: Update your sheets  

Creating a cozy bedding experience starts with the basics, and the first must-have on our list are quality sheets! Instead of rotating through a few pairs each year, invest in good sheets made with natural materials for longer-lasting comfort.

No. 4: Add extra layers

We love folding a quilt on the bottom of a duvet or draping a throw on the bed for more dimension. Extra bedding layers create more texture and warmth aesthetically, and they are functional for when you get cold in the middle of the night!

No. 5: Splurge on pretty pajamas 

The feeling you create in a space is about more than the decor, and one of the best ways to create a more peaceful sleep experience is through cozy, pretty pajamas. You can shop a few of Shea’s favorites below! 

No. 6: Invest in your bedding 

Great bedding inserts and duvet covers can go a long way in setting the tone for your bedroom space. We like to start with Goose Down inserts to create the most full-looking foundation for building upon.

No. 7: Find simple storage solutions 

We love incorporating pretty trays or boxes in the bedroom to eliminate clutter. Plus, having something on your nightstand that you can put your earrings or rings in at the end of the day means you don’t have to get up if you forget to take them out!
