After an exhausting day signing autographs and outrunning the paparazzi, every A-lister needs a tranquil space to come home to. A celebrity’s bedroom is the perfect haven, in the middle of hectic Hollywood, where they can settle down for the optimum amount of beauty sleep. If this sounds appealing but if you’re slightly more average than Angelina, you can still achieve a chic and serene boudoir without the million dollar price tag. How? Furniture Village share their expert tips to create your very own celebrity bedroom:
Make your bed the focal point
Opting for a large bed, preferably a super-king, will instantly give your room the wow factor. If you don’t live in a Beverly Hills mansion, making your bed look as inviting as possible will give the same effect in half the space. You can do this by adding soft sheets, a silky throw and fluffy pillows for a bed you will really want to sink into.
Why not make like Missy Elliot and add some bling with a TV bed? The queen of rap commissioned Ferrari to build her a $77,500 car-shaped bed with a built-in TV on the hood. As if the massive sports car collection on her driveway wasn’t enough!
Colors are known to effect moods, so they are particularly important in your bedroom where you wake up each morning. Celebrities love to use techniques like Feng Shui to alter the feel of a room: Paula Abdul reportedly brought in an expert to change the ‘vibe’ of the American Idol set. While the rich and famous use expensive consultants to make sure the Chi of their room is just right, you can make the same change just as effectively by painting your room in a soft, calming shade, such as off-white or powder blue. Add some low-level lighting to prevent your space feeling cold.
To make sure they leave the house looking fabulous, a dressing area in a celebrity’s bedroom is a must. For the full effect you should use an extra room for this. However, if you don’t have the luxury of space, de-cluttering your closet will make your favorite outfits easier to find. To unleash your inner diva organize by garment and color to avoid ending up on any ‘worst dressed’ lists.
Mirrors are great for making a space appear large, more expensive, and fit for a celebrity. Hanging two mirrors on opposite walls will maximize the appearance of space, and it will mean you can check how you look from all angles before you step out of the door.
Hanging works of art is a great way to spark conversation and – in true celebrity fashion – do a spot of name dropping. New artists are always appearing on the scene and the rich and fabulous love to be the first to show off one of their pieces.

For your A-list boudoir, go one better and get a piece of unique painting or an original art print by an independent artist with fantastic talent but a name nobody will have heard of. You’ll soon be the go-to for skilled new artists and your town’s very own trend setter.
