Hang wall-mounted reading lights close to the sides of the bed or above it (about 6 inches from the edge of the mattress or headboard). Place them at a point that makes sense for the position in which you read: sitting straight up stretched out on your stomach etc. You want the beam to shine directly on the page not at an oblique angle. For maximum flexibility choose articulated reading lights that you can adjust to suit your height and your reading position. Go for a style that focuses light in a narrow beam rather than diffusing it over the surrounding space.
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.
A console table is a versatile piece of furniture that can be useful in many rooms of the house. It's slim in profile and airy in design and can provide a small drawer for storage of personal items. In the bedroom a console table can pull double duty as a nightstand and desk or a nightstand and vanity thanks to the open space that allows you to place a stool ottoman or chair underneath. Console tables seen here frame a bed nicely when the same or similar style is placed on either side of the bed. Tip: If you aren't pairing matching tables be sure the other night table is at least the height of the bed and of a similar width as the console table.
Boho glam. Pick a classic decorator favorite (like the upholstered bed with nailhead trim shown here) to build the room around then mix and match accessories at whim. Bamboo blinds and colorful printed bedding paired with a glass-top table and a fun framed print add up to a laid-back yet glamorous look.
Connect with the outdoors. While this might not be feasible in all climates connecting a room with the outdoors is a great way to make the space feel larger and admit more natural light. If your bedroom is on the ground floor (or is on the second story and has an adjacent terrace) adding a set of French doors can instantly increase visual space.
Refined feminine. Crisp black and white stripes paired with soft misty blue create a chic elegant look that is easy to love. Keep accessories pared down and simple with favorite bags and jewelry on display and a few simply framed art prints on the wall. Bring in delicious texture with a cuddly mohair throw and smooth sateen sheets.
