A good night's sleep is crucial for maintaining both our mental and physical health. But creating the perfect environment for restful slumber can be easier said than done. With so many factors to consider—from paint colour to mattress firmness—it's no wonder we often find ourselves tossing and turning at night.
To help you achieve the tranquil oasis of your dreams, we asked Martha Stewart for her expert tips on designing a luxury bedroom. Here are nine important elements to keep in mind.
1. The Bed
Of course, the most important element of any bedroom is the bed. When choosing a frame, think about both style and comfort. An upholstered headboard will add a touch of sophistication, while a metal or wood frame will create a more modern look. And be sure to take into account the size of the room when making your selection—a king-sized bed might be too overwhelming for a small space.
2. The Mattress
Once you've selected a bed frame, it's time to pick out the perfect mattress. There are a few things to keep in mind when making your decision. First, consider whether you prefer a soft, medium, or firm surface. Second, think about the size of the mattress—will a full-sized bed be large enough, or do you need something bigger? And finally, don't forget to factor in the cost. A luxury mattress can be a significant investment, but it will pay off in terms of both comfort and quality of sleep.
After you've sorted out the bed and mattress, it's time to choose some beautiful bedding. When selecting sheets, opt for high thread count Egyptian cotton or silky smooth sateen weave. As for duvets and comforters, down is always a good choice—it's ultra-cosy and will help keep you warm on chilly nights. When it comes to pillows, there are two schools of thought: soft and fluffy or firm and supportive. Ultimately, it's up to you to decide what's most comfortable.
4. Window Treatments
The right window treatments can make all the difference in creating a serene sleeping environment. Blackout shades or curtains will help block out light so you can sleep uninterrupted through the night. And if you live in an urban area with lots of street noise, soundproof windows are also an option worth considering. If privacy is not an issue, then sheer curtains are a beautiful way to let natural light into the room during the day.
5. Bedside Table Lamp
No bedroom is complete without a bedside table lamp. Not only does it provide a source of light for night-time reading, but it also adds a touch of luxury. When choosing a bedside table lamp, aim for one that's around 30 inches tall—any taller and it might feel intrusive, while any shorter and it won't cast enough light. As for the shade, white or cream-coloured linen will diffuse the light nicely. The Green and Gold Italian Mesh Decorative Ceramic & Stainless Steel Table Lamp is highly recommended for its modern and sleek design.
6. Flower Vase Online
Adding a touch of nature to your bedroom can help create a sense of calm. A simple bouquet of fresh flowers is always nice, but if you're looking for something a little more luxurious, then an ornate flower vase online filled with blooms is the way to go. For an added touch of elegance, try placing the vase on a mirrored tray. The Charming Celestial Decorative Ceramic Vase - Small is classically beautiful and is an awesome way to add a touch of charm. You will also love the Victorian Love Decorative Ceramic Vase & Showpiece for its intricate design.
7. Decorative Items for House
From sculptures to vases, there are endless ways to add a touch of luxury to your bedroom. But when it comes to choosing decorative items for house, it's important to consider both form and function. For example, a beautiful sculpture might look nice on your dresser, but it won't do much to improve the quality of your sleep. On the other hand, something as simple as a scented candle can not only add to the ambience of the room but also help you relax before bed. You can take your showpiece from living room and mix it with your family photos or other sentimental items to make it feel more personal. The Secret Desire Trinket Box Decorative Ceramic Vase & Showpiece with its intricate pattern and golden accent is perfect for adding a touch of luxury.
8. Accent Table
An accent table is a great way to add both style and storage to your bedroom. A small table with a drawer can be used as a nightstand, while a larger one can serve as a dresser. And if you're short on space, then a nesting table set is always an option worth considering. The Amara Gold Base Round Accent Table exemplifies grandeur and can be used as a nightstand or end table. You will love its sleek and modern design and the fact that it is so beautifully constructed.
9. Showpieces and Decor Accents
Last but not least, don't forget to accessorize. A few carefully chosen showpieces and decor accents can help personalize your space and make it feel like your own. So take some time to browse through our selection of luxury home accessories and find the perfect finishing touches for your bedroom.

Decorative items for house, a flower vase online, and an accent table can help add to the overall ambience of the room. With these tips, you'll be well on your way to creating the perfect space for a good night's sleep. Let's create a luxurious oasis where you can rest and recharge after a long day. Sweet dreams!
