Decorating your bedroom is about creating an oasis that invites rest and relaxation. Your bedroom should serve as a retreat that will help you relax at the end of a busy day, encourage blissful sleep through the night, and encourage lazy Sunday mornings that are spent in comfortable comfort. The following tips will help you easily create a bedroom where you can escape to your own private retreat.

Take a moment to think about when and where you felt most satisfied when thinking about a decoration topic. This can be the summer weekends on the shore, a log cabin retreat by the lake, your last trip to Paris or your tropical honeymoon. Resume the locale by bringing this picture into the bedroom as a decoration theme and borrowing all the colors and elements that create the scene.
When choosing colors from your theme, keep in mind that the neutral hues create the illusion of a larger room and reflect natural light when used on the walls. Bright colors have a fascinating effect on an accent wall and provide a dramatic splash of color when selected for carpets, throw pillows, lamps, throws and other accessories.
Bedroom that defines the focus
Creating a center from the bed emphasizes the main task of the bedroom and draws attention to a symbol of comfort and coziness. A king-size bed with a high quality mattress offers the most comfortable and rejuvenating sleep, and its size creates an impressive presence for a focus. Treat yourself to a complete bedding set to beautify the king-size mattress and show fluffy layers of inviting comfort. Choose a puffy duvet and a pair of pillow cases with a pattern that reflects the theme you chose. Choose additional colors in a solid color and a secondary pattern that match those of the duvet. Stack the pillows in an attractive arrangement and then strategically place a few throw pillows of different sizes and shapes to accentuate them. To emphasize and frame the focus, paint the wall behind the bed in a color different from that of the rest of the walls, then hang pictures over the bed and a pair of wall lights over each bedside table.
Let there be light
Choose soft lighting for dresser lamps and ceiling lights to keep the room calm and soothing. Keep the brighter lamps for reading lamps. Adjust the window decoration every morning so that the room is flooded with warm natural sunlight during the day. Choose window treatments such as curtains that match the bedspread, blinds or blinds that match a color or wood in the room, or transparent panels for a light and airy look.
