This might not be a decorating tip, but your bedroom will only feel great if it’s clean and organized. Organizing your bedroomtoo if you follow the right steps. When you declutter your space you declutter your mind. It makes it very clear to see what needs to be purged vs. saved.
It is much better to have less clutter. You will have more control of your space and what comes in and out of it, you will be able to showcase your personality.
2. Throw pillows
They’re an easy way to add color and patterns in your bedroom. They come in a variety of sizes which can help create visual depth to create a fun & interesting look. I can’t even tell you how many bold or quote like throw pillows I see that fit so many styles.
I love seeing pillows that say things like “Love You More” or “Hangry.” Pillows like these examples are the pillows that really can make a statement and generate some great conversations. Use a mix of colors and patterns to show off your personality!
3. Personal artwork
However, if you want to make your own art it really isn’t that hard to do. Don’t worry too much about trying to match it with your decor, art is suppose to stand out.
4. Area Rugs
Imagine waking up, getting out of your bed and being greeted by a lusciously soft rug. It’s the small things that can make those mornings slightly better. When choosing a rug for your bedroom, make sure your entire bed sits within the rug, with about two feet of overhang on each side.
Like the blanket in the photo above? I found where you can get one!
5. Adding nature

7. Customize your space with function in mind
This will mean something different to everyone. If you have a small space, then dual function furniture will be your best friend. Decor will probably be what you need to focus on when designing your home.
If you have a lot of space, then filling it up in a functional way should be your priority. Perhaps you are trying to stay organized? Then creating sensible systems of organization in your home will be best.
