Say yes to colors
This is the starting point for a bedroom makeover. Decide on the mood you want to have and choose a hue that reflects that feeling. Either you wish to create cohesion or you opt for a more mix-and-match effect, color paletting is crucial. Moreover, bear in mind that there are certain colours that can ensure a good night’s sleep. While picking the hues for the room, think that you are creating a relaxing haven. Don’t forget to style up your bed using pillows and covers from the same palette.

Add a creative/ statement headboard
This is a real game-changer we are talking about. Statement headboards are used by top interior designers in hotel rooms as a key design element. Why don’t you do the same in your space? The choice is huge, so pick one that matches the mood of the house. Depending on the final look you wish to have, you can cover a headboard in a bright fabric for a pop of colour or create a dramatic contrast with the walls of the room.
Colorful statement headboards have become a trademark of Kit Kemp’s style and of the Firmdale Hotels she launched several years ago. At the HamYard hotel in Soho London, high headboards with unique shapes are upholstered with custom fabrics and are combined with patterned wallpapers and modern works of art. The final look is the epitome of colorful elegance.
Cut piece-by-piece and assembled by hand, the custom made headboards with the art-deco touches are definitely the wow-factor in every suite at insta-famous Henrietta in London Covent Garden. This kind of custom made headboards is a signature item of French interior designer Dorothée Meilichzon who has also used them at Menorca Experimental in Spain.

A stylish and easy way to revamp the bedroom is a pair of elegant bedside lamps. Always, consider the amount of light and the dimensions of the rest of the furniture in the room before you make your choice. Moreover, match the style of the lamps with the overall style of your space.
We draw inspiration from AthensWas, a boutique hotel in Athens that stands out for its vibes and its design. In the Hellenic Suite, a pair of mid-century blue Mod.548 lamps by Gino Sarfatti enhance the modern urban-chic style of the hotel.
