A calm and serene bedroom allows for a peaceful sleep and a peaceful state of mind. By using light, airy colours and mixes of textures your bedroom is sure to be your oasis.

 

Beautiful linen drapes keep an open,airy feeling while still providing cover from the sun. A rule to remember when hanging drapes is to place them right underneath your trim. Have the drapes just kiss the floor to make the room feel larger.
