What’s more relaxing than hitting freshly laundered sheets at the end of a long day? We all need time to unwind, unplug and restore both mind and body, so take a moment to ensure your personal space allows you to slow down and works for you.
Here are some easy ways to beautify your bedroom:
Calm the Room with Color
We all know by now that paint color is the most impactful and cost-effective way to totally transform a space. However, because color influences the general mood and emotion of the room, it’s imperative to pick a hue that’s right for you.
In general, warm colors welcome a sense of comfort and ease; dark, saturated colors embrace a sense of belonging, and soft ethereal colors offer a soothing, tranquil presence and a preferred backdrop for the bedroom. Check out our calming bedroom colors.
"Colour selections are subjective since we each respond and react to colours in different ways; but bedrooms are where we begin and end our day. That first and last colour impression influences our mood and connects us instantly to all that is familiar and meaningful.
I would recommend warmer mid-range colours, specifically in the ever-popular blue-green family—both of which are restful, soothing, and calming. Try Haddon Hall or Bel Canto; or for those more inclined to a subtle, warmer imbued neutral palette Cappuccino Froth or Archival are ideal."
(Re) make your Bed
They say if you do anything in a day, make your bed. That way, you’ve already accomplished something before it even begins! There are many ways to update its look and feel.
Invest in some crisp, new sheets that will make you feel like you are sleeping on a cloud. Try these from Brooklinen.
Update your duvet or coverlet with a new color. Or simply add a dash of color or pattern at the end of the bed with a folded quilt. In the winter, warm it up with a furry or chunky throw!
Plump up your pillows by adding some texture—and don’t be afraid to try new color combinations!
Add a bench – something about adding a bench to the end of the bed seems to complete a look while also being super functional (extra points if it has storage for blankets and pillows)!

Reupholster your Headboard
Choose a favorite fabric or material to make the head of your bed a statement piece. It adds drama and presents a golden opportunity to introduce print or shapes.
Welcome Some Whimsy
Your bedroom is where you relax and dream, so why not incorporate some magic and fantasy? Here are a few ways to add that extra air of whimsy:
Create a custom neon sign with your own saying
Frame your room in fairy lights
Declutter and organize the nightstand. Try adding some beautiful accent dishes for jewelry and other knick-knacks
Create ambiance with relaxing candles in a scent like lavender (go for flameless to play it safe!)
Nod off to a cool nightlight
