Good Morning Mark & Sleepy,
I hope your day is going well so far :)
Sleepy, I have found the things that make a room comforting to me are 1)simplicity 2) light 3) nature. Hence, my bedroom furnishing consists of: 150 year old iron bed I bought from an old lady when I was a teenager, clean white bed linen, a rush seat chair I dump clothes on when undressing and a wooden table with an antique bronze lamp that comes from family. I also have a fiddle leaf fig plant - I have plants in every room of the house. My bedroom is upstairs and looks out upon trees and is very light. From my bed I look out and can only see sky and tree canopy.
Clothes clutter I manage by restraining it to my small walk-in-robe and shutting the door (I declutter often too). I am very afraid of clothes accumulating as my mother has around 5 large wardrobes and 4 large chests of drawers full of clothes.
Cosmetics, brushes, lotion are only allowed in a designated area mirror area within my WIR. They are not allowed in my bedroom. Electronics (laptops phones etc) must be removed from bedroom to cupboard in the night!
Whilst my rules might seem a little weird. They work for me, and perhaps having lived with hoarders, you will understand how unnerving clutter can be. Like you, I love organisation and decluttering, yet mess can also appear unexpectedly somehow to my great horror and dismay!
Mark sorry to clot up your thread with my bedroom rant, I know it is quite an odd thing to be talking about ;)
