Creating a Relaxing Bedroom Retreat

Creating a relaxing bedroom retreat with our Fern Garden Quilt

So many of us are spending more time at home these days — which can be challenging, especially when you are stuck at home with other members of your household for weeks or even months on end.

In desperation for a little peace and quiet, you may retreat to your bedroom or bath, just for some alone time to think, meditate or relax. But sitting on your bed may make you sleepy, and bathrooms are often in high demand.

Why not create a relaxing oasis in your bedroom for those moments you want some time to yourself? Start with one of our comfortable upholstered chairs, like our Granite Point Glider & Ottoman. Add accents that suit your personal taste and needs. Consider the Iron Vine Torchiere Floor Lamp, which provides gentle room illumination and a built-in task lamp for focused lighting. Are you an avid reader? Create your own personal library with our Shaker or Lancaster bookcases, so you have all your favorite reading material at arm’s reach.

And while your household may have taken over the rest of your home, your personal bedroom retreat is all yours — so enjoy the freedom of personal expression by adding tasteful accent rugs, collectibles and prints. Consider nature-themed items that will remind you of the beauty of the Earth, which relaxes you naturally. Have a soft, cuddly throw on hand like the Gather Fleece Throw when you want to feel comfy and cozy.
