Bedrooms lend themselves well to symmetry, and balance can easily be achieved by using the bed as the focal point. Place nightstands on either side with matching lamps and balance them with similar decor, like picture frames, small plants and candles. Add matching (or coordinating) sets of pillows, and hang similar artwork above each nightstand.
Don’t skip functional decor
Decorating your bedroom is the fun part, but don’t add decor without a plan. Is your bedroom where you get ready in the morning? Place a mirror above your dresser. Are your hardwood floors too cool in the morning? Stay warm with an area rug (and use our guide to make sure it’s the right size!)
Invest in quality bedding
There’s no denying that quality bedding looks better, but they also can improve your overall quality of sleep. Natural fabrics are soft and breathable, unlike their synthetic counterparts. You’ll likely also get a better night’s rest if you’re comfortable!
Consider a color scheme
Similar to deciding on your design style, selecting the right color scheme is essential in creating a restful, relaxing space. Color really does set the tone for the overall mood, so it’s important to get it right. Try out these five color combinations for maximum serenity (link to color palettes)
