Small rooms look cluttered fast, especially if you put large pieces of furniture in the room. It might be tempting to get the biggest desk, bed or dresser, but large furniture eats up floor space and leaves the room looking overwhelming, unusable and crowded. Furniture ideas that create the look of a larger space are a bed with a see-through headboard and no footboard give the appearance of openness. Small night tables with smaller table lamps leave more walk-room, as well as it gives the room more visual square footage.
When crafting a space that both men and women feel at home in, neutrals and woods are your best friends. A headboard that emphasizes shape rather than color is a great way to avoid a look that feels too basic, and a classic rug, such as an Oushak, is something everyone can agree on. Bedside tables, a bench, or chairs in streamlined wood add a tactile quality to the scheme. Color, of course, is by no means off-limits—just choose those pops wisely.
For a bedroom needing that last layer of personality, a few trad-leaning moments might be just the thing. Layered atop simple furnishings, details such as monograms, Greek key patterns, or toile can ground the bedroom with just the right amount of design gravitas without feeling overly staid.
Choosing neutral tones for your bedroom is where it begins. You want to enhance a simplistic appeal, and overstated, loud or vibrant colors can disrupt the peace of a bedroom when trying to create an unassuming look and feel. White on white is very basic, clean, sophisticated and breathable. Black and white together, something that mimics a black and white photo, is the right angle of a Scandinavian look. Beiges, tans, creams, and grey, all work well with simple chic and cozy, for this design. An idea is to cover your walls in a light gray and make them pop with all white trim. Or use one wall as a focal point, for instance, the wall behind the bed could be painted an outdoorsy color while retaining the rest of the walls white.
