Envelop a room in one color to make it cozy. Here we specified a deep blue color for the walls and a slightly darker tone for the trim for additional definition. I read somewhere that a blue bedroom can lower one’s blood pressure and improve the quality of your sleep. That’s enough to convince me. The soft white lacquered ceiling adds to the dreaminess.
Mirrors are your best friend in a small bedroom. A medium to large mirror can be placed just about anywhere — there are no strict rules. You might try one above the headboard or your floating dresser, on a wall that faces the bed, or as part of a mirrored closet door. The mirror will not only make the room appear larger, but it also will reflect whatever natural light you have.
The most classic bedroom foldout piece of furniture, of course, is the Murphy bed. This is a terrific option for an alcove in a studio apartment or a guest bedroom that pulls double duty as a den or home office. It can even be useful if you simply have a small bedroom without sufficient functional space for storage furniture as well as a bed. Today’s Murphy beds are well-designed, comfortable and often incorporate other design features such as shelving or desks.
If you prefer the look of a Roman shade, hang that from the ceiling. Pull the shade down just enough to cover the top of the window. This will elongate the look of your window and draw the eye up.
