My “rules” for a gorgeous bedroom are not so different from my rules for a gorgeous house BUT with a few refinements. Paying attention to the following design tricks will quickly take your space from “good” to “great.”
SOFT INDIRECT LIGHTING
This technique has the biggest impact of anything we do. We don’t need bright lights in our bedroom. Good task lights for reading are crucial. but beyond that, soft lighting will do. Notice the large chandelier (below) is not lit. It hangs like a beautiful sculpture and the light comes from small bedside lamps that wash the wall.
Tiny fairy lights are the eptiome of romantic but they can be very bright. You don’t need as many as this photo.
ACCESSORIZE WITH ARTFUL OBJECTS
This lamp on the mirrored nightstand is an exquisite vignette. Little bits of eye candy, carefully arranged, will turn your bedroom into your sanctuary.

FABRIC ON THE WALL

TEXTURES LIKE FUR AND VELVET
are luscious and sensual
A CANOPY BED IS THE EPITOME OF SEXY
if you have the space for it
HANG NETTING OVER THE BED
It creates an inviting cocoon.
USE A SOOTHING COLOR PALETTE
Pale neutrals are the most serene palette you can choose.
…..OR USE A NARROW COLOR PALETTE
White + one color. Simple and restful.
DARKER WALLS ARE COZY AND ROMANTIC
if that’s what turns you on. But stick to a narrow color palette.
TEXTURED WALLS CREATE A COCOON-LIKE AMBIENCE
Wood paneling brings in that all important touch of nature.
CONCRETE WALLS ARE FANTASTIC IN A LOFT LIKE SPACE
This looks like the homeowner created a bunk bed as an afterthought. It’s a one of a kind and I love it.

Do you like it? I love the quirky screen in laquered black. The pillow fabrics are fabulous with the rug…..just the right amount of bright color. And there isn’t much else in this little room besides a small night stand with a good reading light, and a little chair.
