Bedroom Blues

Your bedroom should be your boudoir, your escape, your resting place. Decorating it well could mean the difference between nights of restful, relaxing sleep and nights of sleeplessness.

One of the best ways to influence the mood of a room is through the careful selection of decorative accessories. These are often small pieces, placed throughout the space, which helps to determine a room’s personality.

Matching lamps and candles will make the room that much more romantic and delightful. Tastefully placing candle holders and lamps will cause “pools of light” to brighten different parts of the room. You should try alternating your candle holders and lamps to see what lights the bedroom best. You should also think about how different light will fall on the room at different times of the day and night.

An easy way to change the color scheme of any bedroom for the better is to hang up matching tapestries. Tapestries can give a room an air of elegance. In addition, a tapestry that complements the room’s main color can help to bring the décor of the entire space together. There are a variety of attractive patterns and scenes which you can choose from, allowing you to totally remake the ambiance of a space, without the hassle of painting or wallpapering.

Mantel clocks lend an atmosphere of wealth, and an air of rich heritage to the bedroom. It makes the space look more formal and finished. If you have an electronic alarm clock, you can use that as your main time teller, and your mantel clock can be chosen purely for its appearance. In this way you get to keep style, without sacrificing function.

Through strategic placement of selectively chosen pieces you can make your bedroom into a formal palace, a laid back escape, or anything in between. The most important thing to remember is that the room has to reflect who you are as a person.
