Take your time. Great design takes a while and usually requires refining before you come up with the perfect plan for your lifestyle. Don't rush through the design — it's worth taking a little extra time up front to make sure you have a more efficient and functional plan in the end. The truth is great design doesn't necessarily mean a space that's overly complex and expensive to build. A space that functions better costs less to build is more efficient to run and is easier to maintain can be an outstanding example of great design.
A nice way to mix and match furnishings is to unify them with a common hue. In this space the lamps differ in height and style but the color green is what allows them to "speak" to each other. On either side of this bed you'll see that the nightstands and artwork are different. However equity is created because the height on both sides is the same. This type of symmetry is not always necessary but visual balance does help to make a room feel more comfortable for some people.
Increase light and ventilation. Locating your bedroom at the corner of your home can give you windows on two or more adjacent walls. This gives you the added benefit of cross ventilation and a softer natural light.
Bookshelves are stalwart storage options for so much more than novels and nonfiction. If you have enough space on one side of your bed try placing a bookshelf against the bed wall. It can house books (of course) as well as decorative boxes for storing personal items like those earplugs and eye masks. If it has an open back or a hole for threading out a cord then the shelf can store a small reading lamp too. If your bedroom door is in a corner of the bedroom as is quite common the bookcase will probably look best placed in the corner farthest from the door. This placement will make the room appear more balanced upon entry. This rule doesn't apply if your door is in the middle of the room. Tip: Keep your bookshelf neat and styled by mixing books with decorative items. Try color coordinating the spines of the books and alternating their placement from horizontal to vertical. Both strategies will help create an intentionally designed look.
This easy styling trick is perfect for renters or decorators short on time. You don't need to mount oversized art — just lean the frame against the wall. This has the bonus of adding to the relaxed effortless feel we're going for in this room. I like to work with oversized prints and frames as they're a little bit unexpected and draw your attention.
Fresh romantic. Pure linen sheets or pillow shams flowing white curtains and fresh flowers are musts for this look. Practicing a bit of restraint will keep it from veering into froufrou territory — a bit of a ruffle perhaps but skip the floral prints. Walls painted a pale minty green provide a soothing backdrop.
