When decorating a bedroom, it’s important to keep the purpose of the space in mind - it’s a place to sleep.  It’s also important, however, to decorate the room in a way that reflects your personal style.  Express yourself with colors and textures.  After all, you spend roughly a third of your life sleeping in your bedroom!

1 | Feature Your Favorite Colors and Textures

Your bedroom is YOUR space.  Don’t be afraid to incorporate your favorite color and textures.  You love red? Great! It’s a bold color, but it can still be added as an accent wall or with accessories.  Love ruffles?  Splendid!  Feature an intricate bedskirt or ruffled throw pillow (maybe both).  

2 | Consider Incorporating Wallpaper

A tasteful wallpaper that is strategically placed, can do wonders for a bedroom. It adds color and texture in a way that paint simply cannot.  When choosing a wallpaper, always keep your overall plan in mind to make sure it’s cohesive with the rest of the room.

3 | Have Fun With Textured or Patterned Rugs

Another great way to bring a splash of color and texture to your bedroom is with an area rug.  You can be more subtle with a solid colored rug that has lots of texture, or you can go bold with a fun a pattern.

4 | Be Thoughtful With Your Accessories

Throw pillows, lamps and curtains are just some of the mainstay accessories in a bedroom that can be carefully and purposefully chosen during the design process.  The key is to find accessories that balance out the space and play off one-another in both texture and color.  For example, if you have a shaggy pillow, but there is no other shag in the room, make sure that it’s color coincides with and compliments the rest of the room.

5 | Add Color and Texture with a Bates Bedspread, Blanket or Accessory
