How to…Boost your Confidence in the Bedroom

No, we’re not talking about confidence in that department… we mean making confident decisions about the interior style of what should be the most peaceful room in your home. Here are some tips… Declutter Would you describe your bedroom as a tranquil and calming environment? If your answer is no it may be because you have too much stuff in it. So often we treat our bedrooms as a dumping ground (it’s the room our guests are least likely to enter), and then feel surprised when we’re stressed-out before bedtime.
