Ideas For A Beautiful Bedroom

I am a big fan of simple, textural, layered bedding. I love the relaxed, unfussy look of linen and a soft chunky throw blanket on top. Without a headboard something was needed to anchor this bed and giant framed art fits the bill beautifully. It isn’t always easy or affordable to procure art this large, so try thinking out of the box by searching for art posters (like these), wall murals (like this), tapestries, or by having an image blown up at a copy shop.

Painting your bedroom walls dark is a sure fire way to make the room cozy and dramatic. Be sure to balance it with lighter elements (like the rug, light shade, and artwork in this room). Rather than using one large ceiling fixture, several smaller lights such as table lamps create flattering, comforting light in small pools throughout a room.

A couple of standout, stylish pieces elevates a whole room. This lovely modern side table is an eye catcher that along with the unusual lamp proves functional pieces can and should be beautiful too. If you’re working with a tight budget for bedroom furniture, I’d say save money on the bed frame and get something simple that will just be covered by bedding all the time anyway. Then pick either nightstands or a dresser to be your “standout” furniture item and spend a little more on that. Let your standout item be the star by styling it up and making sure it’s well lit. If there’s money left don’t forget art for the walls! Art will instantly make the room feel “decorated” and personal.
