Creating Coastal Bedroom Bliss
That feeling… you know, the one where you head towards your bedroom at the end of a long day, back aching and mind racing with things you should have done but couldn’t? Imagine an oasis of a bedroom that could make you forget all that?
Resort style is all about relaxed holiday vibes and nowhere is ease and comfort more important than in your bedroom. Your bedroom is your private space, your own personal hotel room (minus the in-house cleaner and room service) and your portal to Hampton’s heaven.
Can you tell we love bedtime (and frankly still can’t understand why children fight it? It’s the best!)
Get the bed right
We have this perfect Saturday in mind – the one with a coffee, a good book (thank you, Liane Moriarty, for Big Little Lies), sun streaming in and you, propped up against the most beautiful headboard you can imagine. Sigh. We want it to be bedtime already! Don’t forget to invest in a good mattress; your lumbar will thank you later.
Layer that bed up, baby!
Have you ever daydreamed about a bed that just has two flat memory foam pillows at the top? Me neither! Create that dreamy Hamptons look by layering your bed with different sized cushions (biggest to smallest) in the softest French yarn, stunning velvet and textured cotton. Finish with the softest fringed throw, artfully draped (so much harder than it looks!) over the end of the bed.
Light it up (down)…
We all look best in low light (wait, is this just me?) so we swear by spending some serious time getting your bedroom lighting right – you don’t want small flares next to your head! Opt for a stunning ceramic bedside lamp. Going for pendants? Make sure you get the height right. These Palm Springs pendants are sure to blow you away.
Have you met ‘The Chair’?
You know, the one that invariably collects your discarded jackets, and ‘mostly clean’ items? Your chair can add to the relaxed, coastal vibe of your room (as well as fill an awkward corner or alcove). Our current faves are anything with structure yet comfort, a chair that is perfect to sit in to put your shoes on, or like me sit in while you complain to your husband about the amount of washing we always have… (also excellent for reading books or whiling away your time on Instagram) see the full range in our armchairs and seating section.
Creating a Coastal look in the bedroom is easy. Comfort – tick, luxury – tick, as many cushions as possible – tick tick tick!
