23 Decorating Tricks for Your Bedroom - 1

Your bedroom is your personal sanctuary, so why give it the short end of the stick when it comes to design? A gallery of simple ideas to make your slumber zone dreamy.

1. Pile on the Pillows

Pile on the pillows, and don’t shy away from mixing patterns. Combine large prints with small ones, florals with geometrics.

2. DIY Artwork

Hanging a graphic quilt is an easy solution to the “big blank wall” issue. Complementary bed linens pull the decor together.

3. Put Pattern to Work

A printed bedspread, like this distinctive botanical design, does a lot of the heavy lifting when it comes to décor.

4. Incorporate Prints on Accent Pieces

But prints aren’t reserved for the bedcovers. They’re just as arresting when set on a modern-shaped lampshade.

5. Work the Walls

Nightstands and adjustable lamps affixed to walls smartly save space in a small room.

6. Reveal a Personal Side

Your bedroom should express your personality (not just design principles), so feel free to go a little off-center, as with the art here.

7. Decorate With Consistency

Note that the color and fanciful curves of the headboard are echoed by the wall decoration.

8. Make Your Bedroom Comfy

Top your bed with covers made for snuggling, like a down comforter. For total indulgence, choose ultra-soft eiderdown.

9. Choose a Focal Point

A beautiful piece of furniture becomes the focal point when angled into the room. This approach may be more efficient in your space, too.

10. Keep Scale in Mind

Gauge the size of your bedside lamp by the scale of your bed: A four-poster would call for a big fixture; for a low bed, choose something smaller.

11. Mount a Light Source

A wall lamp eliminates any need to juggle items on the nightstand. Equip it with a multi-watt bulb to fine-tune the light for reading or relaxing.

12. Introduce Pops of Color

If you want color without an all-out commitment, inject hits of it with your art and accessories.
