Soothing Bedroom Retreat

We all want to come home at the end of the day to a bedroom that feels like a soothing retreat- an escape from all the stresses, chaos, and technology that consume our lives.  From lighting to color, Sacksteder’s has the scoop on how to achieve this dreamy look.

Dreamy Colors

Make sure to choose a palette that is soft on the color scale. Bright colors are okay in small accents, but orange or a heavily saturated red evoke energy and excitement.  Painted on the walls this can in turn, make you feel anxious rather than ready to decompress. If you still want those colors in your bedroom, opt for small scale accents, such as pillows, throws, or lamps.

Soft Lighting

Ambiance is all about the lighting, so don’t put any high intensity LED bulbs in your lamps and light fixtures. It shouldn’t be too dark that it feels gloomy, neither too bright that you feel like you’re in a warehouse. Be functional with your light by having multiple sources, such as bedside lamps, overhead fixtures, floor lamps, and even candle light like these from Uttermost.

Layer Lots of Textures

Texture from art, pillows, rugs, and accent pieces soften the room and make it feel cozy. If you have a nature jute rug, layer a fuzzy shag rug in an asymmetrical fashion over it. Drape a knit throw blanket over your bed. Hang a woven tapestry as art. Choose from thousands of textiles from Surya. With endless applications, you’re sure to really warm up the space.


Good sleep is one of the most important factors in our health, so why not make it the true sanctuary that it should be? Sacksteder’s loves to hear your opinion, join the conversation on our Facebook page!
