Decorating a Bedroom

We spend a tremendous amount of time in our beds, why not make it as beautiful as possible?

Here are a few quick ideas on how to decorate your bedroom:

-Buy the best linens you can afford. Nothing beats sleeping on good sheets.

-Buy the best mattress you can afford. A comfortable bed helps you sleep better.

-Have good reading lamps. Eye strain is the most common cause of headache.

-Have some fresh flowers and scented candles on your nightstands. Both are very soothing...

-If you must, have a TV, but keep it hidden if you can.

-Get rid of those god-awful electronic alarm clock. There are many nice clocks out there, and did you know you can use your cell phone as an alarm too?

-If your room is large enough, put a couple of comfortable sitting chairs seperated by a beautiful small table.

-A chaise is a great piece of furniture for the corner. Be sure to have a small table next to it to set down a book or a drink.

Decorating with Neutral Colors

We love colors, but we love neutral colors even more. There is something pleasing about coming home to a nice, quiet palette. It brings peace to the soul and gives your eyes a rest.

Here are a few neutral decorating scheme that are quite nice:

A nice use of black, gray and brown. Very masculine and clean-lined.

We think when it comes to bedding, nothing beats nice, white, high-thread count sheets. This bedroom looks like a beautiful boutique hotel suite.

Here's a good source for excellent bed sheets...

Look at this scene. It's one way you can turn a hardly-used corner space into something gorgeous...

With neutral colors, the key is to mix it up a bit. Use colorful accents such as flowers, artwork or home accessories to brighten up. Mix shades of colors, such as cream, beige and white--otherwise it gets monotonous. Finally, layer different textures together.
