Guest Picks: Slumber in Serenity in a Naturally Elegant Bedroom

Why not make it your goal this season to create a peaceful- and natural-feeling master bedroom? You may accomplish this by eliminating clutter and incorporating pale shades of blue, warm gray or sand on the walls. Incorporate your family heirlooms or flea market finds such as end tables, trays and art from soft colors to add interest and texture. Blackout shades and curtains are going to continue to keep the room dark for more slumber. Use luxurious natural fabrics such as Egyptian cotton and Belgian linen in dull or solids patterns.

Listed below are some of my favourite techniques to create a soothing, natural and elegant bedroom. — Mary Ann from classic•casual•house
