6 incredible bedroom accessories you can have delivered right now

Your bedroom should be your sanctuary, the place you go to to get away from it all. Designing a restful, serene space is about incorporating more than just the basics. It is creating an oasis with accessories that bring warmth, comfort, and style. Here are our picks to take yours from simply a place to sleep to a destination in itself.

Lighting

Bedrooms should not just have one solitary light. There should be multiple sources that all have different functions. The main source provides what is known as ambient light, task lighting is used for specific uses such as reading, and the accent lights give the room more personality. This deep blue Origami Table Lamp from Crate and Barrel has a unique design that mimics folded paper. Its crisp white shade offsets the rich sapphire hue of its base.

Area rug

Rugs bring more visual interest to any room. Not only are they another way to tie together other design elements, but they also offer softness and warmth underfoot. Have carpets already? Area rugs can be layered on top and will establish designated zones such as a sleeping or a sitting area. This West Elm Souk Wool Rug is handwoven from one hundred percent wool. It comes in two colors, but more options are available if you have it made-to-order.

A cozy throw

Creating the perfect bed is all about layering. You may have outfitted yours with stylish bedding, but a soft throw blanket at the foot of the bed will add an extra layer of texture. Wrap it around your shoulders when sitting in bed watching television or curling up with a book in a reading chair. This Cozy Pom Pom Throw from Pottery Barn offers super soft, cozy comfort, and it is available in six colors.

Artwork

No room is complete without some visual inspiration. In the bedroom, the art you select should convey tranquility and relaxation. These two Bauhaus-inspired Victoria Borges prints from World Market feature soft, semi-transparent colors that meld together. The artist, Victoria Borges, takes her inspiration from nature and impressionism.

Throw pillows

Every cozy space should have an accent pillow. Layered on a bed or seating area, they marry the other elements together. The key is to vary the sizes and shapes and mix textures and fabrics. The Navin Print Pillow Cover gets its inspiration from antique rugs with muted, aged colors that bring the perfect mix of worldly and boho to your space.

Pottery Barn’s Faux Sheepskin Pillow Covers have the feel of genuine sheepskin and adds a plush, inviting touch to any bed. Their warm white color is easy to pair with bedding and is machine washable.

Plants

Studies show that botanicals reduce stress and clean the air. Bringing them into your bedroom can greatly increase your mental well-being. This Bird of Paradise Plant from West Elm is a great choice because it will do well in almost any light and is easy to care for.

To house your new plant, we love these Mid-Century Turned Wood Leg Planters. The ceramic bowls come in various finishes and sit on tapered wood legs that give them a greater presence.

Don’t have a green thumb but still love the look of plants? This Crate and Barrel Artificial Jade Plant brings the sculptural beauty of a succulent and would work well on a tabletop or dresser.

Sleep experts tell us what you should (and shouldn’t) have in a bedroom
Couple sleeping comfortably in bed.

Your bedroom should be your sanctuary — your happy place, where you can rest and, ideally, get at least seven or eight hours of sleep a night. A good night’s sleep is crucial: It positively affects your immune system, can help prevent weight gain, can strengthen your heart, and puts you in a better mood, just to name a few benefits. If you’re not getting a good night's sleep regularly and are wondering how to sleep better, you should really consider taking our experts' advice. You may be surprised to find out that much of it has to do with your bedroom setup.

Are there items that can help you get a good night’s sleep?
Experts agree: Your bedroom is the most important room in the house and should be designed with your sleep patterns in mind. Since we spend a third of our lives sleeping, it makes sense to think about creating a room that fosters the best possible sleep. Some of them are as simple as making sure the room is dark, quiet, and cool. Think black-out window treatments, white noise machines, and a fan to circulate air. After you’ve conquered those three things, check out the other factors to consider below.
Sheets
According to Marc Werner, the founder and CEO of Nature’s Sleep, choosing bedding that suits your sleep needs is vital and plays a role in keeping your body temperature cool. There are many different types of sheets available, from cotton to silk or bamboo to cashmere wool, so you shouldn’t have trouble finding the best ones for your body temperature.
Mattress
It’s essential to sleep on a supportive mattress. According to Dr. Peter Polos (MD, PhD, FCCP, FAASM), a sleep medicine specialist and Sleep Number sleep expert, this is especially true “for those who are specifically experiencing neck or lower back pain (they should look for a bed that supports the small of their back) and those who have sore muscles (a softer bed can help as their body recovers).”
