5 Decorating Ideas for Bedrooms
It’s easy to change the look of a bedroom―without even changing the big stuff.
You want spruce up your home, but your budget is tight? Don’t worry! We’ve got three unique decorating ideas with items you probably already have.
Seaside Sleep Nook
Soft blue walls and neutral floors, reminiscent of sky and water against sand, are calming. Taupe pillows and nautical-striped bedding continue the palette,
so the room feels cohesive. Weathered pieces, like an antiqued mirror and an unfinished chair, give the room a casual, tossed-together quality that makes it feel friendly
and indestructible, which is relaxing. Layers of natural textures create a luxurious but subtle depth, as in wood floors against a sea-grass rug against a reed basket. Even the nubby spare
blankets factor into the lushness. Ocean-themed details feel soothing, but you don’t want to go overboard with them (pun intended). Vintage photos of boats, a conch shell, and a
brass lamp are just seaworthy enough to create a vacation vibe.
