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!
