Last weekend was a snowy one here in Munich and most time I stayed in to finish a few chores at home. One fun task was to restyle my sideboard in the bedroom which was more or less untouched for a long time. I felt it was time to give it a new look with what I have around and emphasize the natural look with an earthy boho touch in my bedroom. I love everything on the sideboard and every piece was carefully chosen. It is a mix of vintage items and new pieces. And quite a few plants, obviously.

Why have I opted for the natural look in my bedroom? Well first and foremost it is so pleasant to wake up in the morning and be surrounded by plants and a natural vibe. Especially for me who is not a morning person – I need any encouragement possible to get me going in the morning. Moreover the natural look comes with further benefits for the living and sleeping environment: Natural materials do not emit toxic odours and plants purify the air additionally. Did you know that a snake plant is the best option for a bedroom? The snake plant converts CO2 into oxygen during the night thus enhancing the air quality and improving your good night’s sleep.

Any sideboard serves as a good styling playground, right? I have put together some of my favorite vintage ceramics pieces with an earthy touch. Among the pieces is a vintage water/wine jug from Serbia that reminds me of my grandmother as she used to drink water out of such a jug. This time I have also covered my sideboard’s glass top with a vintage tablecloth. Deep inside I hope this will reduce my dust cleaning activities considerably:-) We will see!

So I encourage you to enhance your bedroom – especially by adding a snake plant for better air and better sleep (mine is having a baby by the way)! Happy new week!

    Hello Igor ! I love your style ! It’s so quiet and zen… A yellow items give some happiness to this room !

      Thanks a lot Sadia! I agree, yellow is such a happy colour and makes a room really shine!

    I love the pops of yellow among the green plants!

    And speaking about plants – do you have a go-to nursery or shop in Munich for buying plants? I find the city has a good selection of flower shops, but it becomes a bit more challenging when it comes to finding more interesting green, houseplants. Danke im Voraus!

      To be honest, I can only underline your observation. I find Munich very difficult for plant shopping. You can mostly find regular ones. I have bought a few plants at Seebauer, but mostly I try to get cuttings from friends or bring back cuttings from trips to expand my plant selection.

    I love your bedroom restyle. Such a calming retreat for the winter months – and of course, very biophilic 🙂

    • Reply Igor January 19, 2016 at 14:38

      Thank you very much Sarah! Indeed, it is pretty biophilic! And a very relaxing zone in my home. My zen corner:-)

    Bei Dir steht der Arne Jacobsen in rosa – oh man, wie schön! Das ist mein absoluter Traumstuhl, `leider` ist mein Geld im letzten Jahr für`s Reisen draufgegangen anstatt für den Stuhl… man hat`s als Reise- und Interiorliebhaber aber auch wirklich schwer mit seinen Entscheidungen. ; )
    Viele liebe Grüße! Julika

      Der Stuhl ist wirklich wunderbar und dieses Altrose aus der neuen Kollektion ist wirklich zeitlos schön. Und was 2015 nicht geklappt hat, kann ja 2016 klappen, oder? 🙂

    Oh I had one of those snake plants in the kitchen in Sydney! I’m going to get one now and put it in my bedroom, thank you Igor. Lovely styling! I really love the colour palette of your bedroom, it works so beautifully with the greens and pottery. x

    • Reply Igor January 20, 2016 at 00:38

      Thank you Mel!! Yes, get one, it’s really a great plant for the bedroom! I have one sitting right next to my bed. In fact it’s the first thing I see in the morning when I wake up:-)

    One thing I love about the photos above is the placement of plants in the room. I believe that seeing plants inside a room is a natural stress remedy. Creating that wonderful and comfortable look for your bedroom is an ideal thing to help keep yourself motivated and positive. It’s always a nice feeling waking up in the morning seeing your room clean, natural and simple yet elegant.

      Thank you so much Gail! These are my thoughts exactly – I think there is nothing more positive and nicer than a room with thriving plants!

      • Reply Gail Arlidge March 29, 2016 at 02:02

        Really had a great time upon reading your thoughts through this article. It was basically worth it.
        Exactly Igor.
