Even when the day is pure chaos, your bedroom is the one place where you should always be able to go and regroup. Still, you can at least give yourself home court advantage by choosing decor you love. Your bedroom can often be the forgotten space in your home because no one else sees it — but it should be the exact opposite, because it's the one space where you get to recharge.
- Skinny Bed Frame
If you have your heart set on a four poster bed but don’t want to overwhelm a master bedroom: dark, skinny wood would offer a nice contrast against bright-white walls without consuming the space.
There is nothing more frustrating than a bedroom with just one overhead light. Give yourself options by adding a dimmer or a bedside lamp, opt for several fixtures throughout the room.
- Your Favorite Artwork
Choose an artwork for your bedroom that speaks to you can be a great inspiration. If “less is more” tends to be your guiding decorating philosophy, opt for mounting a single magnificent, oversize piece of art above your bed. One with visual intricacy, such as a busy photograph or a heavily patterned abstract, will have an energizing effect. For something a bit more restful, try a monochromatic work.
- Creative Storage
If you are one of those people that can fit everything comfortably into their closet, that is amazing...but we can’t relate. For those of us with a serious shoe or sweater problem, we’ll take as much space as we can get. The end of your bed is a perfect and unsuspecting spot to fit in more storage.
- A Good Mirror
Mirrors are a pretty magical design element. They make any space feel larger, brighter, and more unique, whether you decide to hang them or simply prop one up against the wall. If not for an outfit-check, get a solid mirror for the design factor.
- A Pair of Silk Pillowcase
Silk pillowcases are good for hair and skin care. Pure silk is skin-friendly and moisture to help feel cool in summer and warm in winter, and great for preventing wrinkles, dry skin and frizzled hair, and morning bed head.
Dermatologists recommend silk pillowcases for those who suffer from allergy as silk fabric is hypoallergenic and with no additives.
