In everyday life it’s important to have a place where you can simply escape from the hustle and bustle.
For Rebecca Judd, a well-styled bedroom makes the perfect sanctuary. The mother of four loves retreating to the room she shares with husband, Chris.
“I love escaping to a different room, my husband and I have a bedroom on a different level to our kids,” said Judd.
“We’ve got a whole wing to our house which is just ours and there’s no toys allowed in there.”
This weekend Judd will be sharing her top tips with Canberrans on creating the ultimate bedroom sanctuary. She will be discussing the important things that make up a bedroom style including rugs, layering and artwork.
“The key to styling with a new look is to have at least three items for that cohesive look in your room so something on your wall, something in a cushion and then something on the end of the bed,” she said.
Judd emphasised the current pink trend as a great addition to any bedroom in the form of a statement piece that you can mute with whites and greys.
“We’ve got this pink linen bed cover and my husband loves it, he doesn’t think it’s too girly,” she said.
“I’ve got these grey cushions so it makes it less girly and more masculine but still really soft, warm and beautiful.”
Velvet and boho are also big on Judd’s radar at the moment.
“Velvet is still also really big, both in fashion and in bedding, and you can do either a quilted velvet bed cover or you can do a velvet coverlet that sits on the end of your bed, which is really gorgeous,” she added.
“Boho trend has also come back and that’s really great.”
The one item Judd believes adds the most character to a room is the humble throw.
“Something that instantly makes a bedroom seem really warm, inviting and styled is an amazing throw on the end of the bed,” she said.
“Take your bedroom to the next level layer with a gorgeous throw and people will walk in and think you’re a stylist.”
Judd will be presenting her masterclass “Thread Count Bedroom Styling” this Saturday, November 11, at Monaro Mall, Canberra Centre from 11am to noon.
