Upgrading the most personal room in the house

Typically hiding behind closed doors from those invited over for tea — the bedroom is the most personal space in the house.

“A bedroom is the place where we spend a great deal of time and it’s a place of refuge,” said Jacqueline Glass, editor of Reno & Decor magazine.

“It’s the room that friends and family members see the least, so people can just close the door. But I think it has changed a little bit — people are house proud.”

Whether with bed made and pillows aligned or sheets dishevelled and begging to be jumped in, the bedroom is the place you start and end your day, the place to hide, cry or ponder life while cosy and relaxed.

“Bedrooms should be soothing,” said Glass, who runs design company Jacqueline Glass and Associates in Mississauga and is a regular on Cityline. “With gorgeous linens and lots of Euro shams and a beautiful fabric headboard for the bed, you can create a space that is beautiful and inviting to be in.”
