How to Make the Perfect Bedroom

How to make the perfect bedroom filled with luxury, simplicity and elegance.

Susan Ellison carries one of the largest selections of Bella Notte linens in her shop Blue Springs Home, as well as other luxurious lines like Matteo and John Robshaw. “A bedroom should be a sanctuary, a room that is peaceful and calm,” Susan says. Here are her guidelines for how to make the perfect bedroom:

All of the linens on Susan’s bed are Bella Notte: Silk velvet chocolate pillow, fawn quilted linen coverlet and linen duvet with crocheted edge. All of the furnishings are antique. Painted ship’s lathe walls add a vintage feel. Fresh cuttings are a favorite embellishment.

How to Make the Perfect Bedroom

1. Great sheets! Pamper yourself.

2. A linen duvet folded at the end of a bed is so inviting.

3. Always have good lighting. I have lamps on each side of the bed at the perfect height for reading in bed.

Antique oars, the Madras Collection bedding by Matteo and bedskirt by John Robshaw mix beautifully in this vintage-style bedroom reserved for Susan’s grandson’s visits.

4. Prop yourself in bed with soft Euro pillows.

5. I prefer white sheets. There’s something about them that makes your bedroom look crisp and clean.

6. Bring cuttings of flowers and foliage into the bedroom to freshen the space. Even a pretty fallen branch or twig makes an artistic statement.
