Ample sunlight can make a room feel bright, large, airy and energetic. In this room, the bed’s placement next to a window that fills the room with natural light creates an indoor-outdoor connection.
Drapes and shades are a fundamental element to make a space feel warm, and I also like to use rugs to make the space feel softer. There should always be an inviting area to sit, read, and relax.
We decorate a lot of bedrooms big and small and in lots of budget ranges, but the one item that makes the most difference is bedding. Make sure the bedding and duvet cover fit the bed. My personal taste is to have color and pattern in the bedroom that are soothing and conducive to relaxing.
As for lighting, I prefer warm, non-directional dimmable light such as cove light or from under a nightstand, and I hide outlets so the design isn't interrupted. I use artwork as an accessory to complement the overall design. And accessories like a carafe, a tray for jewelry, and books can make it feel more personal.
