Light it right, your bedroom needs to be perfectly functional too. Install more than one lighting circuit so that you can switch out the lights at the bedside without the need to cross the room. A dimmer will help create a serene evening ambience while dimmable downlighters work well when task lighting is needed. If space is limited, opt for a wall mounted lamp with an elegant shade like this one, freeing up space on the bedside table. Opt for a warm yellow quality of light, rather than a cool, blue light. ‘Make sure lighting helps to visually maximise the space too,’ advises Mary Barber-Fray of Mary Barber-Fray Interior Design. ‘For example, try lighting the narrower sides of the space to provide a sense of width, whether with wall lights or tiltable recessed spotlights. Choose lampshades that allow light to reflect upwards if you need to give some height to a low ceiling too.
Between hunkering down in a nook in winter and swaying in a hammock during the summer, we can find a way to justify sleep wherever, whenever. But this week we have a real reason to celebrate slumber – Sleep Awareness Week. The National Sleep Foundation is celebrating its annual sleep appreciation week.

Being sleep experts, we can confirm a wind-down before bed is helpful, and being interior design experts, we can confirm it’s all about bedroom feng shui.
Put up a panel, replacing an old headboard is one of the easiest ways to give a bedroom a new look. Try a row of decorative fretwork panels painted inky black in place of a regular headboard- it’ll make a dramatic backdrop for the bed and showcase luxe bed linen beautifully.
