A well designed bedroom can make all the difference in how you sleep, relax, and rejuvenate. It is the space in your home that is the most personal to you, therefore, it should reflect your life and style, all while enhancing every day living. Here are five tips for decorating your bedroom to make it functional, and undeniably beautiful, all while incorporating that designer touch – without the designer!
No. 1 – Choose Furniture That Fits Your Space
Before you start shopping for your bedroom furniture, it is important to consider how much space you have, and how to maximize it. Focus on finding those foundational pieces like a statement bed and end tables that fit well into your space and complement one another nicely. Once everything feels well balanced, then go ahead and start thinking about how best to style them, so everything flows together nicely.
One of our favorite Market by Modern Nest pieces right now for the bedroom, is this Morocco King Bed. Modern, yet rustic – this statement bed exudes style with it’s white-washed oak frame and upholstered off-white boucle style fabric. We love it paired with our Yhara End Tables for an effortless look that is warm, earthy and inviting.
No. 2 – Add Warmth With an Area Rug
Once your key furniture pieces are decided, you can begin to incorporate warm textures into your space to create a cozy and inviting environment. An area rug is great place to start, as it anchors your furniture pieces, while providing color, texture and softness. Depending on the size of your space, we always recommend to go as large as you can, and to layer it underneath your bed. With the end tables flanking the bed, you can then decide whether you want the rug to go underneath, or stop before the end tables’ front legs.
No. 3 – Style Your Bed With Natural Textiles
We love to incorporate natural textiles into a bedroom space, such as linen and organic cotton to create a sense of comfort and warmth. We love this linen duvet and pillow shams from Parachute in the color Oat. Choosing a neutral tone allows you maximum flexibility when styling your throw pillows and blankets, especially if you are the type of person who likes to change your decor seasonally.
After you have selected your duvet or comforter, it is time to curate your throw pillows. We love to mix and match pillows in different sizes, colors and patterns to create a designer look. We recommend starting with a row of large pillows in a 22×22″ style, and then layering smaller, coordinating pillows in the front, such as a 20×20″ style. You can also consider adding in lumbar pillows to break up the square shapes and add further visual interest.
Last but certainly not least, adding a throw blanket to the end of the bed pulls the entire look together, while providing a cozy accessory to use when you lay down to take a nap, devour a good book, or binge a favorite show. You can shop our selection of throw blankets here.
No. 4 – Create a Cozy Ambiance with Lighting
Lighting is often an overlooked element in the bedroom space. But the right lighting can make all the difference in creating the perfect ambiance in your space. Try hanging sconces above your end tables, or accessorize with the perfect table lamp – to illuminate your space. Create further visual interest and depth to your bedroom space, by hanging a chandelier for a striking addition. We have a beautiful selection of lighting to choose from when designing your ideal lighting for your bedroom space.
No. 5 – Accessorize to Make the Room Personal
Accessories are the perfect way to add your own personal touch to a space. Vases holding fresh cut flowers, a candle carrying a warm scent, a glass carafe for drinking water, books, and bowls will help you feel inspired and elevate the every day. These accessories are usually less of a commitment, so you can easily switch them out depending on your mood or the season!
