CREATING YOUR OWN SLEEP SANCTUARY – WITH SEALY POSTUREPEDIC

Bedroom styling tips from Jane Ledger

 
 
We all know how important it is to get a good night’s rest, right? But as an interior designer and stylist, I also know how important it is to create an environment for sleep that’s beautiful and calming.

I was thrilled to work with Sealy Posturepedic recently to experience their premium mattresses and show you how to create your own luxurious sleep sanctuary.

 

START WITH A QUALITY MATTRESS

Choosing a high quality mattress is the starting point for any beautiful bedroom scheme. Here I’m working with the Sealy Posturepedic ‘Enhance’ mattress ensemble, with Medium firmness. I tested quite a few before settling on this one, which has an excellent level of back support and luxurious finish. Made with a unique coil support system and layers of memory foam, this is the perfect foundation for a luxe bedroom scheme.

BUILD LAYERS

Next, build your bedroom sanctuary by layering beautiful linens in colours you love. I love white, charcoal and blue, so used this as my base palette for dressing the bed. I find that when I’m layering a bed, I don’t need to use too much bold pattern or print, as the layers themselves provide texture and interest. I also find it more calming to repeat colours than introduce too many clashing colours.

I layered the Sealy ensemble this way:

  1. White sheets
  2. Charcoal duvet cover
  3. White quilt cover
  4. Stormy blue/grey throw

You can see I’ve repeated the colours but mixed the textures.

Not everything has to match to create a luxe scheme. Play with different pillow and Euro arrangements to create an unstructured look, and mix linen sets to create layers rather than blocks of colour. Here I took one ‘feature’ pillow case from a set I love and paired it with a pair of plain white pillowcases and a soft blue velvet cushion. I used two dark blue European pillows to anchor the scheme against the white panelled wall.

ADD STYLING ELEMENTS

I love introducing round shapes into spaces dominated by squares and rectangles, so two nested round tables work well as bedsides. For a luxe finish against the linens, I included feature lamps in black, white and brushed gold.

A photographic print in tones of Agave green adds a soothing touch to the bedroom. And a large rug under the bed in luxurious bamboo silk finishes the bedroom scheme.

ALL-AUSTRALIAN MADE

Working with the Sealy Posturepedic ‘Enhance’ mattress was a dream. I love that it’s made in Australia and manufactured in the highest quality materials and finishes. And I can honestly say I have never slept better!

I hope you’ll take a few of my tips and have some fun creating your own Sealy sleep sanctuary.
