Did you know that on average, a person sleeps about 229,961 hours in their lifetime? That’s a ton of time spent in your bedroom…it’s also equivalent to watching a Vince Vaughn movie 105,325 times. (ok…yes, he’s my favorite celebrity). Any way…I think it’s fair to say that it’s important to make it a space that you love! Plus, a well-designed bedroom can improve your sleep quality and overall well-being….say AHHH.

First things first, let’s talk about color. The right color palette can make all the difference when it comes to creating a beautiful bedroom. Soft, soothing colors like blues, greens, and grays promote relaxation and tranquility. But if bold and vibrant colors are more your style, go for it! Just be sure to balance it out with neutral bedding and accessories. I’ve designed both, see the above and below rooms we’ve created.

Light it Up

OK, next up, lighting. Lighting is crucial for setting the mood and creating a cozy atmosphere in your bedroom. Opt for warm, soft lighting that isn’t too harsh on the eyes. String lights are a great option for adding a romantic, whimsical touch. And don’t forget about dimmer switches – they’re a game changer.

Not a Bed Idea

Now, let’s talk about furniture. Your bed is obviously the centerpiece of your bedroom, but don’t forget about other key pieces like a bedside table or a comfortable reading chair. When selecting furniture, consider both form and function. Is that dresser big enough to store all of your clothes? Does that bench at the foot of the bed also double as a place to put on your shoes?

Moving on to accessories. This is where you can really let your personality shine. Decorative pillows, throws, and artwork can add color and texture to your bedroom. Plants are also a great addition, as they purify the air and add a touch of nature to your space.

And of course, you’re going to hear me say….keep it clutter-free. A cluttered bedroom can lead to a cluttered mind, so make sure to keep surfaces clear and organized. Invest in storage solutions like baskets, bins, and shelves to keep your belongings tidy.
