How To Style Your Dream Bedroom



We spend a third of our lives in bed so when it comes to styling your bedroom, creating a calm sanctuary is key. It won’t always remain calm (cue kids racing in and transforming your bed into a bouncy castle) but you can try...

Start with a calming colour palette and build your interior from there. For fashion blogger Tash Sefton, co-founder of They All Hate Us, a great bedroom always starts with fresh white linen bedding and natural light. She’ll then fill a room with artworks, eclectic vignettes and always something blue to remind her of the ocean. “Every bedroom needs good lighting and storage. Natural lighting during the day is important to keep the room bright, achieved through well considered window treatments; and soft lighting for evening creates an inviting feel,” says interior designer and brand consultant, Emily Armstrong from The Paradise Catcher. Making sure the bed you’re sleeping on is right for you is also essential for your health and wellbeing. “A good night’s sleep is an essential luxury,” says financial planner and founder of Sugar Mamma TV Canna Campbell. “After becoming a mother, I quickly realised that a quality sleep is more valuable than quantity. Falling asleep in your bed, feeling comfortable and secure, is so important to allow your body to physically, mentally and emotionally recharge itself.” The SleepMaker Miracoil mattress range is perfect for busy, stressed parents. It features a multi-zone support system that is specifically designed to reduce back stress by providing full body support combined with pressure relieving comfort. You can learn more about the range here. To inspire a bedroom makeover, we asked these three stylish women to create a bedroom space. They’ll each give you ideas to inspire your own decor and hopefully help you create a sanctuary so lovely you might just end up spending even more waking hours in bed. That is, if the kids let you… Photography: Emmy Etié Hair and makeup: Sarina Zoe Videographer: Gus Kell In Association with SleepMaker. All products available from Freedom.

The first thing I do when I wake up is…

Roll back over and try to sneak in five more minutes sleep! Then I grab my phone and check Instagram.


For breakfast I eat…

Don’t tell my Mum but I never eat breakfast. I have a large soy latte instead.


A good night’s sleep is…

When my four year old Mac calls out for Daddy instead of me.


The bedroom space I’ve created is…

A hint of what my own home looks like. All white linen always, surrounded by artworks, interesting collections of pieces grouped together, natural light and something blue to remind me of the ocean.


Every bedroom needs...

Amazing storage.


My fashion style is…

High/low. I wear a mix of high end with high street. I love basics, denim, amazing handbags with killer shoes and a top knot. I have too many shoes and handbags, but I have an addiction.


My approach to interiors is...

Controlled chaos with lots of our family treasures surrounding us.


My last big fashion purchase was…

There has been a few – Yeesy boost sneakers that cost more than most designer shoes I own, many things from Gucci I’m yet to own up to and a leather Balmain blazer I’m about to purchase.


I started painting when…

We moved into our new home and the ceilings were much higher (12 foot) than I am used to. I went to buy some artwork and realised I needed a serious amount of money to purchase just one. My sister and I used to paint when we were at uni and thought we could create the same type of art I was looking at buying. When our friends and family saw them hanging everyone put orders in – then we started an instagram account and now we are shipping all over Australia and soon overseas. @seftonsegedin and our website (www.seftonsegedin.com) launches shortly where customers can place orders directly.


I relax by…

Watching back to back episodes of Nashville, Suits, House of Cards and Homeland. I also love shopping with Elle. We have a very fun time!

The first thing I do when I wake up is…

Mediate. I have really gotten back into this recently and it has had a massive benefit in changing my perspective and approach to managing stress and challenges. I do this in bed every morning at 5am. I also incorporate visualisation and gratitude techniques to help keep me focused and motivated.


For breakfast I eat…

I am not a big breakfast person, however I love to make a green smoothie with Rocco and follow it up with an almond milk cappuccino while walking the dogs with Rocco. My mind and body seems a lot more focused in the morning by delaying my breakfast. However I always listen to what my body tells me it wants and needs.


My approach to interiors is…

Polished elegance, but with an inviting and warm approach. I love symmetry, which for me symbolises balance and harmony. The energy of my home is important, and I love having family and friends in my home so I want them to be able to relax, enjoy themselves and be comfortable. Also, having two dogs and a happy but mess loving 2.5 year old means that I can’t get caught up in controlling the sprawl of toys and dog hair that I often come home to. While the display of florescent plastic toys sprawled around my coffee table, my dining table turned into a cubby house and dogs curled up on the sofa with my son can be slightly overwhelming to come home to after a long day, I love that my everyone feels happy and secure in my home to let their spirits play, so I proudly embrace this as ‘happy mess’, which puts things into a better perspective.


A good night’s sleep is...

An essential luxury. After becoming a mother, you quickly realise that a quality sleep is more valuable than quantity. Falling asleep in your bed, feeling comfortable and secure, is so important to allow your body both physically, mentally and emotionally recharge itself.


The bedroom space I've created has a glamourous, luxe feel...

I love mirrored surfaces, high contrasting textures but with a fresh and soothing colour palette,” she says. “I am also inspired by minimalism, (I am anti clutter!), and to encourage a good night’s sleep I find that having minimal distractions help promote a better night sleep.


Every bedroom needs...

A good bed, everything in the room is central to the bed. It is my sanctuary. Even the furniture pieces are all focused around the importance of the bed, the bedside tables, the lamps, the art above the bed, and then decorated with cushions and throws.  For me, I feel excited about jumping into bed. I love my bed and so does Rocco, who still calls my bed “my bed”. I know the benefits that my body will feel from a good night’s sleep and really value and appreciate that.


My fashion style is...

Very classic but with a fashionable touch. I love fashion but I love simplicity with my clothes. I work with a colour palate that makes me feel happy and reflects my style and personality. I want to feel feminine and put together but be comfortable.

The first thing I do when I wake up is…

Cuddle my youngest who is also my alarm clock.


A great bedroom is a mixture of lots of things....

Apart from the obvious being a very comfortable bed, every bedroom needs good lighting and storage. Natural lighting during the day is important to keep the room bright, achieved through well considered window treatments; and soft lighting for evening creates an inviting feel. Table and floor lamp lighting is best for this, but if using overhead lighting frequently, then a dimmer is key. Clever and adequate storage is also essential, as even the most fabulously decorated room can become an overwhelming day-to-day mess in a busy household if there isn’t a place for everything.


For breakfast I eat…

Mostly avocado on toast, (banana bread too if I’m honest), often mid morning if it’s a particularly hectic start, always with a coffee.


My approach to interiors is…

To be adventurous and have fun with it. I like to keep the foundations quite classic but not overly ‘neutral’ (and beige doesn’t really ever have a place for me), then have fun with artwork, lighting, textiles, colour and proportion. I admire and adore minimalism from afar, but it’s not personally for me, in a residential setting. The fun aside, function to me is almost as important as form, as interiors need to facilitate a sense of ease for those living in the space, so elements such as: the flow between rooms, storage and future adaptability are really important to me.


A good night’s sleep is...

A distant memory…


The bedroom space I’ve created is…

A fresh modern room mixing some mid century pieces with a relaxed summery vibe achieved with a white on grey/green palette, artwork and accessories.

My fashion style is...

Eclectic. I love a bohemian vibe in summer and a more classic polished (I try!) look with quality staples in winter.
