Decorate the walls.

If you desire to change the colour of the walls, we recommend relaxing colours such as blue and light blue; or very soft colours such as cream, pastel green or lilac.

Another idea could be to consider wallpaper, or wood-panelled walls or stylized floral decorations for a minimal and personalised style.

Decorative Elements.

Equally important are the furnishing accessories. If space permits, it is possible to furnish the room with a refined and elegant pouf and footrest. Placed near a coffee table, they will create a corner of privacy and relaxation where you can dedicate yourself to your hobbies, from reading to listening to music.

The Upholstery.

But in the bedroom the real protagonists are the fabrics, i.e. the upholstery of the bed, curtains, rug and furnishing accessories: choosing the right ones means revolutionizing the appearance of the room in a single stroke.

Cushions and Pillows.

To complete the bed area there are soft pillows to be placed over the blankets. The most appreciated are the rectangular or square ones which, if combined correctly with the linen and the walls of the room, can recreate suggestive plays of colour and make the room welcoming as well as chic.

The Reading Corner

A reading corner is one of the focal points of the home during the cold seasons. Also in this case a very comfortable armchair with a high and enveloping backrest is a must. Another solution could be a chaise longue that would give a touch of style to the room.

A Cozy Bedroom

As far as the bedroom is concerned, you have to focus on the most important element: the bed. If you have a bed with a wooden frame and headboard, we recommend you to abound with accessories: pillows, blankets, upholstered benches and furnishing accessories that balance the minimalism of the bed.

Wall clocks

Design accessories, such as those of Vitra, can be easily combined with any furniture and style of the house but also with any wall colour. They are miniatures of iconic furniture, colourful coat hangers or elegant and sophisticated clocks.

Tapestry rugs

Another idea we propose you is to use tapestry carpets, such as Nanimarquina’s Hayon x Nani instead of a painting. These types of accessories, made entirely by hand, are true works of art.

Acoustic panels

How about, instead, using nice acoustic panels, like the Beetle from Sancal company, to decorate the wall of your living room? The designer was inspired by the exhibition rooms dedicated to entomology and their terrifying showcases of insects…

Coat hangers

If the empty wall is located at the entrance of the house or in the hallway an idea would be to opt for a wall hanger… maybe coloured or in contrast with the colour of the wall.

Complements That Favour Relaxation In The Bedroom

Complements that promote relaxation in the bedroom.
Furnishing elements and accessories that make the sleeping area a more conducive environment to sleep.

ercol bosco bed 1

Sleeping well is not optional: during sleep the body regenerates itself, a fundamental phase of psychophysical well-being. Sleeping poorly or badly can cause many problems, there are several studies. From mood swings to worsening of the immune system, from weight gain to the simple inability to concentrate the next day: failure to rest often has negative consequences. There are many factors that can affect the quality of sleep. Stress, anxiety, worries, health problems. But sometimes we do not realize that even the bedroom itself can alter the way we sleep.

sleeping well

And let’s not just talk about the quality of the mattress, which, of course, is essential. Even when we are awake we are strongly conditioned by the environment in which we find ourselves. The moment of night’s rest is no less important. Some environments can make it difficult to fall into a long restful sleep (too noisy, or too hot, for example).

sleeping well 1

According to feng shui, a thousand-year-old oriental tradition applied to architecture and furnishing, regular shapes and natural materials should always be preferred, and the accumulation of objects and disorder should be avoided. However, it is not necessary to apply the principles of feng shui strictly to understand that in a clean, tidy, cluttered room you sleep better than in confusion. The less furniture and objects are around you, the less the brain will be stimulated in the resting phase. In addition, numerous studies state that it is necessary to disconnect, separate from technology at least 2 hours before going to bed. In addition, it is very useful to furnish the room with sober colors, light, embracing pastels, relaxing and earthly nuances. Do not underestimate the importance of a soft, warm light point. A heavy curtain to create darkness. A carpet that makes pleasant contact with the floor of the room. There are many elements that can promote relaxation.

Wooden Furniture

Wooden furniture radiates warmth, relaxes the senses and can adapt to any decor as well as being eco-friendly. You have the feeling of being immersed in nature, into calm and serenity.

Warm rugs

There’s nothing like a soft carpet to sink your bare feet into before going to bed or in the morning when you’ve just woken up. So, soft rugs, made with natural fibres and with warm and welcoming colours.

Design Curtains

External noise and natural light are two elements that can drastically reduce the quality of sleep. For this reason, it is important to place the sleeping area in a silent part of the house where light can only penetrate indirectly, as well as having good windows (with double glazing) and blackout blinds. But if for logistical or economic reasons you cannot intervene structurally, at least opt for blinds and insulating design curtains.

Your New Bed Buying Guide

Your New Bed Buying Guide for the purchasing of the most important item of your home.

It’s never easy to choose the right bed for our needs. There are so many factors to consider: model, design, comfort, mattress, slatted base, costs, upholstery… Our New Bed Buying Guide aims to talk you through the many options available, from style to materials, to help you make a clear and informed decision.

 

What are your primary needs?

As a starting point it is better to consider what you need, not only from the personal point of view but also according to the characteristics of the room in which the bed will be placed. Is the room small? So you need a bed with a container to store blankets, bedclothes and other items? Is your bedroom dusty? In this case Japanese style lower beds are not recommended at all. In addition, wheeled beds are available on the market for cleaning the room easly because  they can be moved at any time in any direction. If the bed is for a single person you don’t necessarily have to buy a single bed; The one-and-a-half-quarter beds are ideal for those who have a large room and are looking for a high comfort bed.

The design

After these reflections you can move on to the fun side in choosing your new bed: the design! And here a huge window opens up thanks to the wide choice, almost infinite I dare to say, for what concerns brands, models, finishes, coatings, fabrics …
There are prestigious brands that have created beds with a unique, exclusive and extremely elegant design. Others, however, with good prices have created beds of excellent quality so as to offer the customer a good product without having to spend exorbitant amounts.

Upholstery

Fabric or leather? What type of fabric? Wool, linen, cotton?
The choice is not easy at all! Usually fabric is the most used upholstery because its very versatile and so it can be combined with any style and type of furnishing. It is also easy to wash and to keep cleaned. It is usually available in a very wide range of colours and variants: fabric trame, bubble, jeans, sponge…Linen is a very very elegant upholstery and is able to give a touch of style to any environment. It is a cool material which keep you fresh during summer and most of all is the most durable material for beds. Wool, instead, is perfect during the winter season, it keeps you warm and comfortable. Its elegant and, the most important thing, is characterized by its natural stain resistance. It expresses all its potential in the colours of light blue, green, ancient pink and beige. Leather is the most exclusive and luxury upholstery. A bit expensive but, if it’s well maintained, it can last en entire life! The more time passes the more leather becomes precious and charming adding character and personality to the environment in which the bed is inserted.

Slatted Bases

The slatted base, together with the mattress, is perhaps the most important element. The quality of sleep and the ability to rest and relax comfortably depend on it. Thousands of models are available on the market, here some examples of the best seller ones:

-slatted base with metal structure, steel tube frame with oversize cross section

-slatted base with antistatic wooden butcherblock structure

-metal bed base and steel frame with larger section and surface in rigid plywood with ventilation holes…

 

The mattress

All mattresses offer different levels of support, tension and comfort and it’s important to get the one that’s right for you. At first you should think about how you sleep as this will determine how much support you’ll need for your back and head. Secondly you should think about how often the bed will be used and who will use it (if its a bed for kids, for guests, if it’s a double or a single bed…). We have collected some of the most popular models:

-Ergonomic springing mattress

-Orthopaedic springing mattress

-Pocket-spring mattress

-Pocket-spring mattress hypoallergenic

-Polyurethane mattress

-Polyurethane mattress with removable cover
