Your Oasis

Peaceful Bedroom Escapes

Photography by Romona Robbins

When it comes to rest and rejuvenation, you don’t have to book a day at the spa or escape to a far-off resort; relaxation can start at home. The designers at Sugar Beach Interiors in Miramar Beach, Florida, are experts at helping their clients turn home into an everyday getaway from the hustle and bustle of work, travel, school, and errands. In your home, you should surround yourself with soft textures, simple beauty, and conveniences for living easy.

President and lead interior designer Karen Waterfield and her team at Sugar Beach Interiors have a mission: “As every note composed in a musical score creates a symphony, careful consideration is given to every detail when designing your home.” The epicenter of comfort and peaceful vibes in the home is usually the bedroom, and the licensed designers at Sugar Beach have some helpful tips for making your bedroom the ultimate oasis, where you’ll love to say “ahh” at the end of a long day, snuggle up with loved ones, or relax on the weekends.

1. It’s Bed Time

Nothing adds peace to your day like a wonderfully comfortable, good night’s sleep! You get what you pay for in the bedding department. Start with a quality mattress and make sure your individual needs are being met when it comes to firmness or softness. Foam toppers and pillows are equally important and add to the comfort factor.

2. Get Covered

Next, spring for the luxurious bedding of your literal dreams! To create the ultimate nest for relaxation, go for the high-thread-count sheets, such as 100 percent cotton sateen. High-quality blankets, comforters, and coverlets are also worth the money.

3. Texturize It

A cozy throw in a soft knit or a textured material such as faux fur can add visual interest as well as make the perfect top layer for snuggling up with a good book or movie. And, all those throw pillows might seem like overkill, but they can actually create a fabulous nest of comfort for your next Netflix session while also keeping your bedroom looking sophisticated and luxurious.

A pretty yet functional tray, perfect for enjoying breakfast, tea, wine, or champagne in bed, is sure to become a favorite piece. When not in use, it will look great on your dresser topped with a vase of fresh flowers.

4. Define the Space

The simple addition of an area rug will not only change the entire look of the bedroom but also create purposeful spaces within it. An area rug can designate the bed as a magical oasis for sleep and relaxation, keeping it visually separated from the dressing area or bedroom office space. It can also add color and personality to the room—plus, when you sink your feet into a soft, cozy rug, it offers an immediate sense of calm and comfort.

5. Set the Mood

Lighting is an important element of any space in the home, but it is often an afterthought in the bedroom. Consider setting the mood for relaxation with well-planned lighting, including table lamps or wall sconces around the bed and overhead lighting with a remote dimmer. The dimmer makes it oh-so convenient to take your bedroom mood from prepping for the day to relaxing with a book to time for sleep with just the touch of a button.

6. Make Use of Accessories

Consider bedroom accessories that are both decorative and functional when you’re designing this space. Yes, a candle in a decorative container can be beautiful, but it does no good if you never light it, so get a scent that you love, such as relaxing lavender. A pretty yet functional tray, perfect for enjoying breakfast, tea, wine, or champagne in bed, is sure to become a favorite piece. When not in use, it will look great on your dresser topped with a vase of fresh flowers.

Contact the team at Sugar Beach Interiors for help implementing these and other great tips for making your bedroom a stunning private oasis—where you’ll relish hitting the snooze button and spending a little more quality time!
