At the end of a long, busy day, who doesn’t want to come home to a restful sanctuary and comfy bed to dive into? The older I get, the more I appreciate a calm and relaxing space. And sleep! Bedroom trends have changed over the years. Do you remember those bright red accent walls? Or how about the cold, modern styles of the ’80s?  While tastes differ, I do think most of us are just eager to create a dreamy space where we can relax and unwind. Ahh, the serenity! If you are looking to make your master bedroom the retreat you’ve always wanted, there are some simple ways to make that happen!

If you’re looking for some elegant throw pillows to spruce up your bedding, you’ll find some great options here.

The Stuff Dreams Are Made Of
  1. Keep It Neutral – If you are truly looking for a tranquil haven, neutral shades are peaceful and have a calming affect on the mind.
  2. Declutter – Entering a clean and clutter-free room puts a tired mind at ease!
  3. Make Your Bed – Climbing into a made bed just feels better! Fresh sheets, fluffed pillows, you deserve it. And, make your bed beautiful, comfortable and luxurious with quality bedding.
  4. Lighting – Have some soft lighting for atmosphere and brighter lights for more practical purposes like reading.
  5. Have A Seat – Not on that well-made bed! Have a chair or bench for reading or putting your shoes on. This keeps the bed lovely and orderly.
  6. Indulgent TouchesCandles, fresh flowers, relaxing music, a pretty bedside carafe – create an ambiance of luxury.

Signature Hemmed Duvet Set

Boll & Branch is a retailer I only recently discovered. They bring new meaning to the idea of luxury bedding if you're looking for an upgrade.

Signature Hemmed Sheet Set

This sheet set is Boll & Branch's #1 seller. The organic cotton is super soft and lightweight - like sleeping on a cloud. They come in 8 colors but all are neutral and lovely.

Barefoot Dreams Throw

An irresistibly soft throw blanket that checks the boxes for luxe, cozy, and neutral.

Bedside Carafe

A bedside carafe and glass set is one of those little indulgent touches and looks pretty on your nightstand.

Tufted Storage Bench

Not only does a storage bench at the foot of the bed look elegant, but it also offers extra seating and storage for bedding (or shoes and purses!).

Chrome Bedside Lamp Set

This set of 2 bedside lamps are neutral with a touch of glam. The USB port is a nice bonus for uncluttered wires.

Corsa Ceiling Fan

I really have to have a fan on year-round for the cool air and white noise while I sleep. Anyone else? This one has overhead lighting which is a nice bonus. I like the look of this one - simple and contemporary.

Bose Bluetooth Portable Speaker

I've had this portable speaker in my office for years and just recently purchased a second for our bedroom. Music is so calming and always puts me in a good mood!
