We spend a massive percentage of our lives in our bedroom – whether it’s the eight hours we spend in there sleeping every night, or whether it’s getting dressed, doing hair and make-up, or simply relaxing with a book. Just like our partners, our bedrooms are with us for the long haul. So, if you’re celebrating with your partner, why not treat yourself to a brighter bedroom by updating your abode?
If you’re celebrating your first wedding anniversary, you might not want to be splashing out on extravagant purchases, especially with the price of today’s weddings! Instead, indulge in a set of Egyptian Cotton sheets. After all, the first year of marriage is signified by cotton. They’ll not only be a great treat for you and the other half, but they’ll also be long lasting due to their quality.
Leather is the symbol of the third year of marriage – perhaps suggesting your relationship has toughened up, and is hardwearing. If so, a leather bed might be an option for you on this anniversary. Leather beds, or faux leather beds, can make a room look contemporary and smart.
On your fifth wedding anniversary, what better way to inject a little romance than with a cute Parisian style bed? Wood is the object for year five, and this white wooden bed would look perfect in both a chic Paris apartment, and your home.
The 12th year of marriage is the year of silk and fine linen, and it’s time to treat yourself. Sateen bedding, with its 200 thread count, it the perfect way to celebrate in style, and luxurious comfort. It’s also ultra-breathable and will add a touch of beauty to any bedroom.
It’s your 25th wedding anniversary. The kids have flown the nest and it’s time to mark being silver certified. And the best way to do this? Get some extra space in your life by doing up the spare bedroom. Create a glorious guest bedroom or make the perfect room for relaxation. The choice is yours, but before you decide, throw a massive party for you and your other half – you deserve it!
We’re entering vintage territory now – the big 4 0. If it’s your ruby anniversary, you could splash out on a rouge bedspread, or if you’re feeling really celebratory (or just a little achy), try an adjustable bed for the ultimate in comfortable living.
If you’ve hit the gold standard of a whopping 50 years together, make a statement not only by having a big celebration, but also with a statement bed or headboard, such as this Eleanor headboard. It’s beauty is in its detail and it’s reference to the past – perhaps much like your relationship!
