Consider replacing ordinary door hardware with more stylish options. Handles and knobs in Lucite, modern brushed brass or polished chrome could give the room an updated feel. For a more cohesive, intentional look, coordinate your door hardware with your drawer pulls.
To maximize limited floor space — especially because the bed typically takes up much of this valuable real estate — incorporate flexible furniture that folds up to the wall. You might try a foldout desk that doubles as a makeup table. A wall-mounted pullout shoe organizer in the closet can free up space on the closet floor for a small chest of drawers, adding needed storage.
Design tip: For a cost-effective bold statement, use your throw pillows as the centerpiece of the room. A curated collection of patterns and textures that are distinct from the rest of the room can really steal the show. For example, in an all-white room, a collection of brightly colored pillows grabs the eye. Similarly, in a room with a dark wall and bedding, try an assortment of either colorful patterned pillows or metallic hues for a dramatic palette.
Extend the headboard. In this bedroom, the white headboard’s embossed pattern adds texture and subtle contrast to the overall design scheme. And its dimensions make the entire bed area seem larger than it actually is.
