Is Your Bedroom Ready for a Makeover?
With Summer almost here, (sort of) you might be wanting to spruce things up a bit to add a little charm and “freshness” to your space. Here’s a few tips to add a little charm and elegance to your bedroom.
Your bedroom furniture is what makes the biggest impression on you, first thing in the morning, and at the end of each day. If buying, look for furniture that you’ll love, unique pieces that add character and charm to your personal space. If renovating, check out the resale shops and add your own touch with paint or stain.
A modern style canopy bed can add a lot of simple beauty into your bedroom. Use a four-poster frame that is clean and matches your current finishes. A simple design allows you to dress up the bed as you please. Keep it clean for a masculine touch, or add a soft look by hanging gauzy panels.
Have an empty corner in your bedroom or office? You can consider adding a traditional style daybed and bring it to life with an elegant French countryside flair. Add lots of layered pillows and throws to bring out the character of your set.
Don’t be afraid to incorporate antique pieces throughout your modern decor. Adding a fun vintage trunk or even an antique dresser with a crisp bedding set can really coordinate a beautiful theme. Antiques can give your bedroom a lot of personality and provide a conversation piece.
Your bedroom furniture and bedding have a large role in making your master functional, but it’s the little things that will really bring out the personality and charm. Consider the type of mood you want your bedroom to have and decorate to match that mood. Do you want a dark cozy room? Do you want a spa like feel? Or do you prefer a beach theme? Whichever mood you want to go with, adding decorative pieces can bring it together.
THROWS & QUILTS
Piling up on extra blankets can be a great way to add decorative pieces throughout your bedroom, that can also be functional. Quilts and silks add a cozy element to the room, where as cotton can add a modern clean feel with lighter weight for summer use. Drape bed scarfs over chairs to add a lived-in look.
FLOWERS & CANDLES
The aroma of fresh flowers or a lit scented candle can help you unwind and enjoy the quiet moments in your bedroom. Scents can elevate the mood, but they also help you relax. Get one that isn’t too strong, can be enjoyed long term, and fit’s into the decorative mood of your room.
STYLE YOUR NIGHTSTAND
Keep your nightstand free of cords and electronics. Clutter can bring a negative mindset, and when it’s the first place you look at in the morning, you want to keep the electronics and mess off your tables. Add a stack of timeless books, an elegant tray, or a decorative pieces of art. Only keep the necessities, like reading glasses, a glass of water, or your favorite book.
