Add visual depth to your bedroom by layering colours. Chose a hue that you really like, and then select bedding and accessories in different shades of it.
Consider a bed canopy, complete with draped curtains for privacy that will lend a luxurious feel to your room. If you feel like your curtain truncates the room, try a frame-only canopy, which will allow light to flow freely in your room.
Hanging a graphic quilt is an easy alternative to painting or wallpapering a large blank wall. Hunt for interesting ideas and diverse shapes and sizes at thrift stores, art collections or craft shops.
Layer your window treatments: one sheer, gauzy layer, coupled with a heavier drape, so you can enjoy complete darkness at night, and limit the amount of sun that streams in during the daytime.
Short on closet space? Prop an old ladder against a wall and use it to hang towels, clothes or accessories.
Mount a wall sconce instead of using a table lamp. This will give you more space on your bedside table, and will lessen the risk of your lamp getting knocked over and broken.
Feeling a little print shy? Instead of wallpapering an entire room, wallpaper furniture and accent pieces instead. This is a great way to ease yourself into patterns. Start with your desk, your headboard or shelving unit.
Try a bedroom chandelier.
From a Feng Shui perspective, having your bed flush up against a wall impedes the flow of positive energy. Besides that, it is also very predictable. Maximize your chi and mix things up by placing your bed towards the centre of your space.
Neutrals in the bedroom lend a calm and relaxed feel, however they can end up looking kind of boring compared to other vibrant colours you may have in your room. Combat this by choosing neutrals that are textured. This way you get the calming effect of the neutral, while maintaining visual flare.
