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.
Good quality bedding and a calming, neutral color palette are key to creating an inviting bedroom environment. We like to layer accessories as well with throw blankets, pillows and, of course, a delicious smelling candle.
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.
This finished bedroom, with planning and execution, took four months. The nightstands were custom, the wallpaper handmade, the bedframe, furniture, rugs, lighting and accessories took months to arrive from our vendors. Then we had to consider the electrical work, painting, application of the wallcovering, and the installation of the furniture. The takeaway is that a well-done room takes time, planning and patience, but the outcome is worth waiting for.
