Whether your style skews boho or modern, we have designer tips and tricks to quickly elevate your bedroom without tearing down walls or racking up a high bill. These pieces and ideas cover everything you need to create your most comfortable, luxurious and personal bedroom ever.
A room is never completely finished until you address your window dressing situation. In the guest bedroom of a Paris apartment, the custom forged-iron bed frame is finished in gold leaf and stands out against the curtains made from a Pierre Frey chintz and Dedar fabric.
Create the illusion of more space in a tiny guest room by opting for a daybed instead of a large bed frame.
Less can be more when designing around a statement art piece. In this minimal apartment, the neon wall sculpture is by Glenn Ligon and stands out beautifully against walls sheathed in a Marmorino finish.
Sticking to one light color is an easy way to make a small bedroom feel less claustrophobic. In a young couple's monochromatic Swedish home, the master bedroom blends white and cool brown for a color scheme that makes the petite space feel more open and airy. The bed is by Hästens, and the lamp and stool are vintage.
If you grow tired of things easily, using curtains as a creative headboard lets you update your room to fit every season and mood. In the master bedroom of a palatial Florence estate, the bed coronet and curtains are of an Ian Mankin stripe.
Layering is key to a beautiful bed. It gives your space an instantly glamorous upgrade, plus you'll be beyond cozy in the wintertime. The master bedroom of a Gramercy Park apartment seen here features a luxe bed dressed in custom Frette linens.
There's nothing more frustrating than a bedroom with just one overhead light. Give yourself options by adding a dimmer or opt for several fixtures throughout the room, like Christian Siriano's Connecticut country home.
There's no need to go overboard with the art in your bedroom: pick one piece that speaks to you and also makes a statement. This charming bedroom in a Uruguayan country house prominently features a painting by Eva.
You want everything in your bedroom to exude comfort, and the color palette is no exception. Whether you're a fan of warm or cool shades, pick colors that you naturally gravitate toward and give you a sense of calm. This home in Mexico opted for organic colors like ocean blue and deep brown. The statement wall is painted with Patagonia by Comex and the Eames chair and ottoman are by Herman Miller.
You should have as many family photos as you wish in other rooms in the house, but it's best to keep the bedroom's artwork less emotionally loaded. Elegant photographs add some character to your space without reminding you of specific people while you're trying to fall asleep. All of the photographs pictured in this Upper West Side bedroom are by Marsha Lebedev Bernstein.
