Instead of using bedside table lamps, hang pendant lights from the ceiling. This creates a vertical line upward and opens the space below, making the room feel lighter, uncluttered and even a bit more styled.
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.
Wallpaper is a transformative way to create a statement in a room. This deGournay wallpaper with 12-carat white gold and aluminum accents is striking and serves as the foundation of the room, but its neutral colors allow for the freedom to add accent colors such as the moss green and magenta chosen for this space. Choosing neutral colors for a big-ticket item such as handpainted wallpaper will give you more versatility because you can always switch up the other colors in the room quite easily.
With large furniture taking up floor area in your small bedroom, one great trick for creating space and giving the room an airier look is to float some pieces on a wall. This arrangement makes the furniture seem to merge into the wall, giving your room a more streamlined appearance.
