Art and lighting are two of the most important elements of good interior design, and doubly so in a bedroom. When designing your spa bedroom, be sure to choose art and lighting that foster a sense of peaceful calm.

Choosing art for a spa bedroom

In our first post about spa bedroom design we discussed your inspiration. What was your “happy place”? A lush forest? A tropical beach? Consider hanging a piece of art that reminds you of a favorite location.

For a more contemporary look, you could also choose abstract paintings in soothing colors.

Whatever you choose, make sure it is something you can lose yourself in, a piece of art you enjoy so much you will love waking up to it every day.

Designing a bedroom lighting scheme

Lighting has an incredible ability to alter the mood of a room for better or for worse. Make sure your bedroom lighting scheme contains the major types of lighting: ambient (general), task (reading), and accent. Putting your lights on dimmer switches will give you even more control over the ambiance.

Uplights and cove lighting in a tray ceiling are a great way to add soft, diffuse ambient light.

Another way to set a peaceful, spa-like mood in your bedroom is incorporating candles into the decor. We love these flameless candles from Luminara and currently have some available for purchase.
