That keeping the house clean is something I pride myself in is true. Maintaining the room spic and span is one thing but keeping it with a homey, cozy look is all in all a different story. Well, there’s a lot of things one can do to get that cozy feel. You can have designer bedrooms with just about the choices of furniture and the minute details you incorporate in what’s supposed to be your comfort zone. And with the help of design powerhouses Kenzo, Fendi, Donna Karan and Etro, you can enjoy a well-decorated bedroom that will never go out of style as their fashion/clothing counterparts. Either as inspiration or getting a few pieces from their collection.
For starters let’s go with:
Paint. Try going for something that would shout. Although having beige is safe, why not try red? Red could be stimulating, yes but it could also be calming provided you choose a shade that intends that purpose. Try injecting walnut-colored panels and white linens to soften the look.
Furniture and Bed. Invest in furniture that would suit the overall look of your bedroom. Choose a broad category that you most likely classify yourself with. That could be traditional: floor to floor draperies, rich wood dressers and cabinets like cherry or mahogany and bed dressed in layers, walls with your favorite photographs.
For an uptown look, choose platform beds…one that borders that and a zen feel, the only difference would be your choice of wall design and furniture. Choose white furniture and displays in vibrant colors.
Go with wood and wicker for a garden cottage look with matching commode and such of the same make. Wallpapers in green or anything depicting nature would also give that “outside” look intention.
If you are the adventurous type, go exotic with inspiration from the Caribbean or African – choose beach colors and tribal respectively to achieve the look you want. A rug or two here and there of appropriate colors would accentuate your room just the same.
Bed sheets and pillows. Choose bed sheets that will match the wall color of your choice. Here is one from Fendi’s bed linen collection. There may have been a lot of replicas of this make so be sure you buy authentic products direct from the store or website. While it is safe to have white, try to match your sheets with the color of your wall. Brown goes well with beige and so would apple green. But, if you’re the rebellious type, you can always have your linens mismatched.
Use pillows with reservation, too much pillow might not look as cozy but if you have a a ginormous bed, it’s alright to have them in abundance.
Lighting. Lighting does works wonders. with careful choosing, your room would appear bigger and cozier with the choice of lighting you have. Mirrors, as you know will make rooms look bigger so invest in some with installed lighting.
Accessories. Feel free to add your personal choice of displays, vases, flower pots and even picture frames. You can also install a small bookshelf for your favorites which will come handy when you feel like staying in your room with the company of your favorite book character. Give your bedroom a personal touch and you will surely look forward to coming home everyday, with the thought of being refreshed and relaxed for having a good night’s sleep.

Your bedroom is your sanctuary so investing on furniture that would make it cozy would be worth the comfort and convenience it brings.

Aside from all the helpful elements given, i find it exceptional to consider the paint and lighting.
hmm, looking at the photos, I am certain love it and definitely will have a fantastic sleep. 🙂
wow what a great bedroom, it’s feel so comfortable to sleep:-)
I just transferred to my very own house last year and I still can’t get enough of it. I love interior decorating too, I even put up an Fb page for my collection of interior design ideas. 😉 the motif of my living room is red, white and black. And I’m loving it! 😉
A friend who will soon be transferring to their new home asked me for some tips on home decor. I really am not into this and all I know is to have basic beige as paint to give an illusion of wide space to a small living room. I guess it’s also easier to mix and match colors with it.
The bedroom, in my opinion, should always have that homey, relaxing feel. After all, it’s where you recharge after a full day of work, kids and other stuff life has to offer. The Fendi sheets look gorgeous. I’m a fan of dark brown and tan combinations. 🙂
I prefer modern minimalist design when it comes to my house. So I really like the first photo because the pop of color on the wall compensates with the minimal design. I also love that lamp! 🙂
I would love to have my bedroom painted with a combination of green and purple but this design is minimalist but it looks so fiery with that striking red paint, so stimulating though.

We should try as much as possible to make our bedrooms comfortable and upgrading its looks is just one of the things we have to do to achieve this.
red walls… very elegant and powerful but sexy… not common, that’s why its appealing. yes, white is a very safe color since it blends well with almost all colors. Yahweh bless.

These tips were very helpful. Thanks for the interesting and informative article!
The bedroom is the most important room in the house. Everything has to be just right to get a good night sleep.
This is a wonderfully informative post, I especially appreciate the instruction on matching the color of the bed sheets to the color of the wall, thank you!!
If only I had an unlimited budget. I would so love to be able to redo the whole bedroom top to bottom. I love looking in magazines to get ideas.

I am just like you about keeping my bedroom neat an tidy – I make the bed as soon as my hubby gets up (to his chagrin, sometimes). I even make the bed when we’re at hotels because I cannot stand the muss! Needless to say my bedroom design reflects this – very simple.
