(NC)—While the purchase of smaller homes is becoming more popular, large-scale master bedrooms continue to remain on-trend, as they offer an escape from the real world. Sue Rainville, director of marketing for Hunter Douglas, Canada’s leading manufacturer of custom window fashions, provides the following tips on how to create the perfect retreat in your bedroom:

Atmosphere: Leave the world outside and the items that remind you of it.  The master bedroom should be tidy and clutter-free, offering a place to de-stress and find solace.  Replace cell phones and computers better suited for a home office with candles and photos of loved ones.

Furniture: Keeping with the streamlined look, furnish the room with essential elements only.  An oversized bed with lots of pillows offers a comfortable escape and focal point.  Additional furnishings such as “his and hers” bedside tables provide a place for personal items and an armoire can host a television, decorative books and photographs.

Window Treatments:  The right window treatments can soften harsh light and provide privacy for a restful environment and maybe even a touch of romance.  Products such as Silhouette window shadings from Hunter Douglas diffuse light through two fabric layers for a warm glow and calming effect.  The shadings’ rotating fabric vanes have the added benefit of allowing one to direct that light to where it is needed most and close for privacy and light control.

Decorative Accents: Brighter, airy colours such as yellows and warm blues invoke a sense of warmth and happiness.  Using a fresh coat of paint in these colours can dramatically alter the look of a room.  Add an inspirational element using paintings from places around the world where you have traveled or hope to.

Bath: Luxury still resonates with the master bath.  “His and hers” vanities remain popular as well as relaxing soaking tubs.  Aromatherapy candles and oversized, fluffy towels add both a functional and decorative element.

With these tips, you will be dreaming in your bedroom both night and day.
