There once was a time when there were no laptops in bed, televisions on dressing tables or piles of unfinished laundry, scattered about the spaces where we sleep. Once upon a time, at least in our imaginations if nowhere else, bedrooms’ primary purposes were to set the scene for sleep… and another word starting with ‘s’ that we’ll leave to your imagination.
From an aesthetic perspective, it’s actually fairly easy to bring an air of joie de vivre into the bedroom — a little bit of French influence goes a long way, particularly in a small space. Consider an antique bed, a fur throw, some luxe drapes, or really, anything that hints of an evening in Paris with delights to be savored.
Let’s be honest: there’s nothing more sensual than an aura of relaxation… so, what better room to infuse with little luxuries to help us unwind (and unwind) than the boudoir itself?
