Keeping the house clean is something I try to do despite a busy work schedule. Seeing the the rooms clean and making them stay so but having a homey feeling are two things different.
While having designer items around will definitely make your bedroom prettier, it doesn’t always have to be. Picking out pretty furniture and deco would do the trick, also here are 5 Points To Focus on When Designing Your Bedroom to keep it cozy.
Have something that stands out. Sure, white is safe, so is beige, but what about red? True, red could be too loud but you can soften that with beige pillows and linens for your bed to match.
Bed, Cabinets, and co.
Having furniture that suits the overall look of a bedroom is a good investment. You can choose a style: if you’re the traditional type, go for rich wood dressers – mahogany or nut colored woods would be beautiful. These would look really dramatic when you put your favorite family photo on top.
Having the wall painted red, frames with white would surely pop out.
If you are the minimalist kind of person, having a platform bed will give your bedroom that zen atmosphere. Choose furniture of course that also spells minimalism – usually, white ones would do the trick.
For a cottage, garden-ish look, go for green walls or wallpapers. Rattan and wicker beds and furniture are your go-tos. It will give that “I love nature” look.
If you love the beach, by all means choose blue! Blue everything for a relaxing aura all-around. Maybe have an orange rug to break the monotony!
Bed sheets and company
Choose bed sheets that will match – either soften or strengthen the color of your wall.
Brown matches well with beige and so would apple green. Blue would complement yellow, but it depends on the shade. Teal and red also goes well together if you’re the rebellious type. And you can always have your linens mismatch for an edgy look.
Use pillows yes, but don’t overdo it. Too much pillow might not look as cozy and will go you extra work for washing too many at a time.
Lighting definitely do wonders for a room. Careful choosing the type and shade, your room would not only appear bigger, it would also give off a cozier feel. Mirrors are a must, they make rooms look bigger, reflects window lights well, and you need it anyway before going out everyday.
Let your inner interior designer out – add your personal choice of vases, flowerpots, antiques, and even picture frames.
You can have DIY built-in bookshelves for your collection, or a display case of your partner’s toys. 🙂 Whichever, having your bedroom personalized will make staying in more comfortable.
