Everyone wants a lovely, relaxing bedroom where they can retreat after a long, tiring day. What so often happens is that your bedroom somehow becomes the place where everyone gathers to watch TV, snuggle, eat their favorite snack food or just talk. It may be time for you to take back your bedroom and transform it into a stylish room with decorative pillows.
Whether you’re looking for a complete transformation or a beautiful budget fix, decorative pillows can give you that spark of inspiration. First, decide on a plan. You can look through magazines or websites to get ideas for your redesign. Make a brief list of what you’d like to see and what areas most desperately need help. You can start with something simple, like changing the wall colors. It’s usually best to use lighter shades of color on walls in the bedroom. Lovely sea greens and calming blue colors can set the perfect mood.
If possible, change your furniture around. This can really make a dramatic difference and doesn’t cost a penny, plus you can clean the areas that usually don’t get cleaned. Once you get a new vibrant color on the walls and the furnishings moved around, it’s time to think about new bedding. Sometimes we all get stuck in a rut when it comes to colors and patterns. Try inviting a friend to go shopping with you; someone with very different, but good taste. Ask them to help you choose a comforter, sheets, rugs and other accessories.
You may be surprised at how refreshing it is to think outside the box with your color and pattern choices. Select colors that go well with your drapes, carpets and other room elements. These can even be contrasting colors. You may need new window coverings. This can transform a bedroom and it’s usually a very economical solution. Most people only have one or two windows in their bedroom. This is a good time to dust blinds and vacuum around windows. They seem to get dusty quicker than other areas.
Once you have these tasks completed, it’s time for the finishing touches. Sometimes people stop before they actually get to this final step. This part of your bedroom renovation is the icing on the cake, so don’t neglect it. Purchase three or four beautiful decorative throw pillows that bring the room’s design together to place on your bed and around the room in a window sill or chair. Add several elegant vases of flowers. If your budget allows, add one or two small lamps in the room. Don’t forget to add several fragrant candles on nightstands and suddenly, you have a brand new bedroom.
