Ever wondered how the rich and famous live? Take a look inside some of Australia’s biggest celebrity bedrooms to grab some Aussie-meets-Hollywood inspiration.
If there is one place in your home that should make you feel like a celebrity, that place should be your bedroom, a place you spend the most time relaxing and rejuvenating.
While a majority of celebrity bedrooms are decorated by the world’s best interior designers (and can often be over-the-top in expenditure and unnecessary grandeur), there are simple ways to make your own bedrooms look ‘expensive’ and luxurious without the crazy price tag. They are:
- Overfill your throw pillows – add plentiful plush, overfilled throw pillows to transform your bed from ‘everyday’ to a bonafide retreat that emulates 5-star hotels.
- Add a hanging light fixture – Replace those generic light fixtures with a hanging light statement – like a glamorous chandelier, or if you are budget-conscious, go for alternative round pendant lights that still add the same amount of drama and romance. Available on sites like Etsy & Amazon).
- Rethink your bedside nightstand – If your nightstand is packed with items and toiletries, re-think how it is displayed. Hide some things away and display small items on a beautiful tray.
- Focus on statement pieces – Dark wood bed frame, a giant royal blue rug, a cabinet with mirrors, a red velvet armchair – each bedroom should have its own centrepiece, but make sure it is the rooms focus. Don’t clutter the room with too much furniture, have a focal point.
- Keep the floor empty (no mess) – Keep the bedroom organised and clean. A cluttered bedroom never looks expensive or luxurious – so keep things off the floor and orderly. No stacks of books or piles of extension cords, either.
- Re-organise your vanity – Just like your bedside nightstand, a cluttered vanity can break your whole bedrooms look. Buy some makeup organisers (or jewellery chests) and keep the surface looking as clean as possible.
- Add Greenery – The quickest and easiest way to upgrade your room from ‘average’ to ‘expensive’ is to add greenery. Ferns, an orchid in a pot, some succulents, frangipani’s or fresh flowers in a vase will do the trick while inviting positive Feng Shui into your bedroom and giving you a better night’s sleep.
