Recreate Your Bedroom With Cielo Style
When looking at recreating your bedroom, think about the kind of feeling you wish to achieve. A bedroom should ideally have a relaxing feel, be comfortable and clutter free to give you a sense of clarity at the end of your day.
The easiest way to create a calming space is to choose colours that you love. So once you have the colour in mind, choose pieces for your bedroom that are functional and that resonate with who you are. For me, this is easy because every Cielo piece reminds me of the place where it was made and the person or artisan group who made it. If you choose pieces that are meaningful to you, you are more likely to look after and cherish those pieces. This ultimately prevents you from buying more.
Choosing ethical and high quality pieces can help you form that connection. So when you are buying for your bedroom or any space, think about how it was made, who made it and what benefit it can give to your life and others.
Once you have all of this in mind, play around with different shades and textures of cushions, throws or blankets that match your colour palette. White bed linen goes with everything, so use that as your base and work from there. Layer your cushions with different colour combinations and when the weather becomes cooler, simply drape a wool blanket over the end of your bed.
Our range of home goods were all handwoven on backstrap looms by women’s weaving co-operatives in Mexico and Guatemala. The women create their art slowly, with intention and feel every stroke of the hand loom, with one end of the loom attached to their hips and the other attached to a tree or pole. Each design can take up to 1 week to weave and they are often finished off with hand embroidery or hand knotted tassels. Check out our suggestions below!
If you have a neutral coloured chair in you room that also needs a bit of colour, drape a throw over the top or place a few colourful cushions on top. Just like we have done with our Rainbow Throw, Mustard Diamante Cushion and Flora Cushion.
Once your bed is looking beautiful, purchase some coloured baskets to match and pot some plants to give the room a restful feel. We have used our Planta Palm baskets that were handwoven in Oaxaca. We have a few designs left and they are available exclusively through our Noosa studio. Get in touch if you wish to visit!

Today we are launching a very special collection that is so close to our hearts and we want to give you all an insight into how these pieces came to be.
We often get asked about how we connect with our artisan partners. For us, we have found most of our makers by being on the ground in Mexico or Guatemala. We do a lot of research and spend time in each community. It can be difficult to form new partnerships while living in Australia, so sometimes we come across makers via the wonders of social media.
Hello lovely Cielo friends, family and followers.
Mother’s Day in Australia is on Sunday the 12th of May and I know that many of you love to spoil the ladies in your lives with Cielo treasures, so we just wanted to give you the low down of our plans for the next couple of weeks.
