Calm the visual noise. Ideally the bedroom would be solely devoted to rest and relaxation but if you live in a smaller space this simply may not be possible. If you must make room for your desk in the bedroom aim for a setup that allows you to hide everything away when you're done working. Tuck work-related items into drawers and cabinets leaving surfaces as clean and clear as possible for a restful feeling. Take action: Remove anything that reminds you of work bills or to-dos from within visual range of your bed. If you can find a place to store these items in a different room do so. If not clear out a drawer or shelf in a closed cabinet to keep them out of view.

Dresser or chest. Rather than restricting your night-table furniture to the small or low profile you might go bold with a relatively large piece of furniture like a dresser or chest of drawers. This can provide much-needed extra storage particularly in a narrow bedroom. The key with a larger piece is to create balance. When the bed is placed in the middle of the wall add another large piece of furniture to the other side; a second dresser or a desk typically will work. Be sure both pieces are similar in height and width to create a more symmetrical look. Adding lamps of the same height on either side of the bed can add to the harmonious effect when your night tables don't match. Tip: If you opt for two different lamps and they are not exactly the same height place one or two books beneath the shorter lamp to give it the extra height.

Orange above. If you prefer to wake up with a happy jolt try a bold orange-gold color on the ceiling. An orange ceiling will intensify the blue of the skies outside as blue and orange are complementary colors. With such a strong color on the ceiling I'd go with light and warm neutrals for the walls and trim.

The nudist. It's not always practical to unleash your alter ego when it involves shedding all your clothes but there's no reason you can't do the next best thing and bathe au naturel alfresco.

Ottomans can easily adapt to life as nightstands. They can be found upholstered or in leather or wood. They also come in a variety of shapes: round square rectangle octagon. Choose a piece that is about the same height as the top of your mattress in a width suitable for the space next to your bed. With upholstered ottomans you may want to place a tray or large book on top to create a flat surface for a lamp and other bedside items. Tip: Look for an ottoman with additional storage inside. Many have compartments specifically designed to store shoes — a bonus for shoe lovers.

Wooden bathtubs usually made from waterproofed marine wood add unexpected warmth to tile and stone bathrooms. This rectangular tub works well with an Asian-influenced design but I love that it can feel classic too.

This sleek oval soaking tub gives the bathroom an industrial shine. Although stainless steel's durability and easy maintenance are huge pluses homeowners will also appreciate how the metal helps bathwater stay warmer longer.

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.

In place of a vanity stool. Another place you might put your personal towels is in a recess where a vanity stool might otherwise go. If you have the space and find you rarely sit down there park a rack there and always have a towel within reach after washing your hands. A separate towel rack on the wall offers ample room for dry towels to warm while their user is showering and for damp towels to dry out.

The rebel. We're all forced to toe the line to some degree — there are laws to follow jobs to show up for and cultural norms to abide by after all. But if a part of you wants to walk your own path a symbol in your bathroom can serve as a reminder to stand up for what you believe in and that you can dance to your own tune … at least to a degree.
