- Bedroom as Sanctuary/2023-03-08/0 Comments
A sanctuary is a place where you feel safe and protected. Your bedroom is your intimacy, your bubble, a refuge far away from problems, where you will find comfort and a calm retreat after a long day. It’s also a place to unwind, find oneself, think and meditate. Transforming your bedroom into a peaceful oasis is key to a night of healthy sleep conducive to reducing stress and health issues. Prepare for a good night’s sleep in a cosy serene bedroom. La Maison Chic has a large variety of bedroom furniture to help you create the bedroom you always dreamed of.
How to make your bedroom a mindful sanctuary?
Choosing the right colours is a great first step for your new interior project. Prefer natural materials like wood or fabric for your décor, furniture and bedding because they help create a cleaner and more peaceful environment. They are also long-lasting and better for your health. Seek simplicity and go for more calming, soft colours and dusty tones such as blue and green. Avoid bright or intense colours like bright red or deep yellow. Blue, for example, is the colour of the mind and the best colour for your bedroom as it induces a feeling of tranquillity and promotes relaxation and serenity. Research has shown that blue helps lower your heart rate making it easier to fall and to stay asleep. Another study from the University of Sussex found that navy blue was the most reassuring colour in the world.
Once you have selected a pleasant colour palette, you will have to find the bed that suits your interior. It’s the centrepiece of your bedroom so consider which design, size, material and shape will suit, enhance and maximise your space. We spend 1/3 of our life sleeping, therefore, finding the right bed is an important decision that must be taken carefully. Comfort and style are two essential points, sleeping well isn’t a luxury but a necessity so it’s recommended to spend a little extra on a good bed as it will last you for a long time.

Place your headboard against the wall, try not to face the door or the windows and include two bedside tables on each side of the bed. Whether French, Venetian, mirrored, rococo, ornate, industrial, traditional or embossed bedside tables, find one that fits perfectly with your bed. The positioning of the bedside (preferably as near as possible to a light switch) and the space for a table lamp are important criteria you should keep in mind while purchasing your new bedside.
