Bedroom Style Tips

A beautiful bedroom makes for a bright morning, so spend some time infusing your bedroom with your personal style and wake up happy every day. From bedding to flooring to decorative accessories, there are plenty of ways to add personality to your bedroom. Read on for a few of our favorite bedroom style tips.

Stylish Bedding Ideas

Stylish Bedding Ideas

We spend a third of our lives in bed, so you should invest in the style, quality, and comfort of your bed. First and foremost, pick up comfortable, quality sheets that are inviting to climb into every night. Then, decide on a bedding style that appeals to you. An all white bed is classic, but think about adding a pop of color with sheets that have a trim or a plaid blanket at the foot of the bed. A bedding set with a mix of patterns or colors can have a more eclectic look. Beyond color, don’t forget about texture: Textural elements have a cozy, welcoming vibe—add a chunky pillow and faux fur or cashmere to the end of the bed.

When you’re purchasing bedding, think about your morning routine. Is time an issue in the morning? A duvet is practical because it can be made quickly. Sheets, quilts and coverlets create a gorgeous layered look, but take more time to make each day.

Bedroom Rugs

Bedroom Rugs

You can place a large rug under your bed or smaller area rugs or runners beside your bed. Regardless, a soft, plush rug is will feel great under bare feet in the morning. Bedrooms are lower-traffic areas, where you’re less likely to be wearing shoes, so feel free to select a light-colored bedroom rug or even a sheepskin; It won’t endure as much wear and tear as, say, a dining room rug.

Bedroom Decoration Ideas

Bedroom Decoration Ideas

From your nightstand to your dresser, there are plenty of opportunities to add decorative accents in your bedroom without making it feel cluttered. We love to place a couple of stacks of interesting books on the bedside table or dresser. Decorative bowls, boxes, and trays are also great accents for the bedroom, as they offer storage for everyday odds and ends like jewelry and watches. Be sure also to keep a vase in the bedroom for fresh flowers, as well. Flowers will add a connection to nature and provide a soothing scent for the space.
