We all want luxury, comfort and glamor in our bedrooms. Celebrities seem to have mastered the art of a luxurious space, perfect for relaxing after a day signing autographs and avoiding the paparazzi!.
The A-list could teach the rest of us a lesson on creating a tranquil boudoir. Unlike them, you don’t have to spend millions to get the look. Here’s how to create your very own DIY celebrity bedroom.
Your bedroom needs a focus so as you spend a lot of time in it make it your bed! A grand king-size is obviously preferred but, if you don’t live in a Beverly Hills mansion, work with the space you have. Add color and texture with your linen, throws and drapes to make your sleeping area fit for Hollywood. Choose a quirky headboard or frame to make a statement with your bed. A TV bed will add a touch of futuristic glamor to your room, while hiding away your TV when you’re not using it, to create a serene environment.
Rap star Missy Elliot not content with countless sportscars had the people at Ferrari construct a huge 16-foot by 8-foot model Ferrari Spider bed! It included a TV screen in the bonnet, storage space for her shoe collection in the boot and space for a king size mattress in the interior all for a mere $77,500.
Your bed should be as comfortable as possible to help you maximize your beauty sleep. A good mattress replaced every 8 years will have you waking up feeling like a million dollars.
The decor in the room you wake up in every day can really affect the way you feel. Celebrities spend a lot of time and money getting the feng shui of a room just right, but you don’t have to go to such lengths to create a peaceful space. Painting a room a calming color can transform its ambiance. Light shades have a relaxing effect, whilst brights can convey energy. Layering different textures and using soft lighting can prevent these colors making a room feel cold.
A dressing area is compulsory in a celebrity bedroom. Ideally you should use a whole other room however if you don’t have enough space for a walk in closet. Small closets organized well will allow you to find all your favorite outfits quickly are a more compact alternative to a walk in closet.
A make-up or grooming area must feature in your bedroom. Invest in a spacious dressing table and organize it with additional drawers and boxes to make it easy to get your hands on all your miracle lotions and potions.
Lights and Mirrors:
Natural light is key to the feel of a room. However if you don’t have it create it by using light and Large wall mirrors, ideally opposite each other, great for creating the allusion of more space as well as for admiring yourself. The more space you have, the more expensive your room will appear, so this optical illusion is ideal for getting that celebrity look.
Celebrities will pay big bucks for obscure abstract art or have work specifically commissioned to bring something different into theirhomes. Instead of spending a fortune, you could make some abstract art by stretching canvas across cut off pieces of wood. Once you’ve done that you can be as creative or minimalist as you like.
Remember it doesn’t have to resemble anything; abstract art can simply consist of lines and shapes. If you’re lacking creativity you could always buy a framed picture to make a great finishing touch.
