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.
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.
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.
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.
