Wake Up Your Bedroom
Cool, bright, and fresh, an all-white bedroom can be as invigorating as spring itself. The feel can be alternately “clean slate” (perfect for starting a new day) or calm and romantic (ideal for unwinding at night).
To keep it from looking too vanilla, incorporate a variety of different textures—think ruffled or cut-out lampshades , quilted bedspreads and cushion covers, woven baskets, and a wardrobe with frosted glass doors.
Think outside the bedroom by bringing in one or two items you wouldn’t expect to see there—and give the space a revitalized bonus use. Craft a breakfast nook using two kitchen chairs and an outdoor pedestal table and create an inviting spot for your morning paper and coffee. Install a glossy chandelier and an ottoman in front of your wardrobe to fashion a luxurious department store-style dressing area you’ll look forward to using every day.
Mirrors are a great way to open up your space and add a “glam” element to your décor—they also make it easier to get ready in the bedroom if a bathroom is unavailable. Create a gallery using wall mirrors of varying sizes, shapes, and materials, like wood frame or wire frame , or make your own arrangement using IKEA’s HONEFOSS mirrors that can be combined to create stylish patterns on the wall. You could even try furniture with a reflective element, like a wardrobe featuring mirrored glass doors, or an Art Deco mirrored vanity.
