In the master bedroom decorated in fact show their character, disposition and taste, different bedrooms with each other decorative elements to form a complete exhibition space.

Pile on the Pillows

Pile on the pillows, and don’t shy away from mixing patterns. Combine large prints with small ones, florals with geometrics.

DIY Artwork

Hanging a graphic quilt is an easy solution to the “big blank wall” issue. Complementary bed linens pull the decor together.

Incorporate Prints on Accent Pieces

But prints aren’t reserved for the bedcovers. They’re just as arresting when set on a modern-shaped lampshade.

Mount a Light Source

A wall lamp eliminates any need to juggle items on the nightstand. Equip it with a multi-watt bulb to fine-tune the light for reading or relaxing.

Pay Attention to the Floor

A cheery yellow rug is like a burst of sunshine in a low-key room. For most bedrooms a four-by-six-foot rug by the bed is ideal.

Mix It Up

Don’t be afraid to pair up unlike pieces, as with these bed tables. A short stack of books serves to even up the lamps.
