1. Keep It Simple

When it comes to interior design, simplicity is key. The more things you try to do with your space, the more likely you are to make a mistake. Instead of trying too hard to make everything fit together perfectly, stick with one overall theme while still allowing plenty of room for individual touches.

2. Mix and Match Patterns

A room that features two or more patterned fabrics can be an eye-catching way to bring interest to a space by combining different scales, textures and colors. Pattern mixing is best done when you have one dominant patterned fabric with other patterns playing a supporting role.

3. Paint the Ceiling

You should paint the ceiling white. It makes the room feel bigger, and it's a great way to add a pop of color without having to repaint your entire house. It also helps make the room feel more open and airy. It's important that you choose your paint colors carefully when painting your walls, but don't forget that you can do something different with your ceiling too. The sky is literally the limit when it comes time for this next step in designing your bedroom.

String lights are a great option for adding light and romance to your bedroom. They're also perfect for rooms with few windows or where you want to create ambiance without using up space by hanging standard lamps.

7. Add Seating Area

Add a seating area to your bedroom. A good rule of thumb is that if you're sitting on a couch or chair, it should be comfortable enough for you to sleep on as well. A throw blanket in coordinating colors goes a long way toward making your space feel warm and welcoming, especially when paired with pillows in complementary hues.
