Make it happen

Want your own resort

style bedroom?

Sahar Fikree shares

her top tips

1 Want your bedroom to feel like a luxury

hotel room? There’s a reason why hotels only

use white linen – it keeps a room really fresh

and crisp. Plus, you’re spoilt for choice when it

comes to buying a new set.

2 Make sure that your duvet extends over your

mattress until it’s almost touching the floor on

both sides. You shouldn’t actually be able to

see the bed frame – it looks more plush and

luxurious this way. It’s also a great solution if

you have a spouse who hogs the duvet.

3 A high pile rug brings a sense of luxury to

the room and feels great under foot when you

wake. It should cover at least half the length of

the bed and protrude outwards from the base.

4 We tend to keep a lot of stuff on our side

table, so always try to select a table lamp that

has a base with a small diameter. This way,

you won’t clutter it up. The height should

be as close to the bed frame as possible so

things are within easy reach.

5 Some people like shelves above their

bed, but you should always avoid hanging

anything heavy over your head. If you want

to display objects, get a headboard with

built-in shelves.

YOU CAN EASILY UNROLL

IT AND DRAW IT OVER

YOU DURING THE NIGHT
