xxnx2016 Paint your bed a solid color for a sleek, modern look. Add a colorful quilt xxnx2016 and lots of pillows with different patterns for a boho look. For a vintage, country-chic look,xxnx2016 you could paint your bed a base color, and then add a second coat of a crackle-effect paint to get that weathered look.

Mix large,xxnx2016 bold prints with smaller, more intricate ones. Combine organic prints with geometric prints xxnx2016. Use contrasting colors. For example,xxnx2016 you could get a pillow with a bright green pattern and a plain white pillow.

For accent pillows,xxnx2016 consider using something with a textured fabric or an irregular shape. For example, you could get a xxnx2016 velvet round pillow or a brocade tube pillow.

xxnx2016 Give your windows and walls some color with curtains.xxnx2016 Try to match the curtains to some aspect of your room, such as the rug, pillows,xxnx2016 or bed linens. xxnx2016 You don't have to go out and buy curtains; saris and shawls can make beautiful, graceful curtains. xxnx2016 If you live in a rental unit,xxnx2016 you might already have blinds.

xxnx2016 Add some softness and warmth with a cozy rug.xxnx2016 Try to get a rug that matches some aspect of your room, such as the bed linens,xxnx2016 curtains, or wall color.

The most common rug placement is just in front of the nightstands,xxnx2016 with the rug extending past the foot of the bed.

If you have a twin,xxnx2016 double, or full sized bed, get a 5 by 8 foot or a 8 by 10 foot rug. If you have a queen or king sized bed,xxnx2016 get a 8 by 10 foot or 9 by 12 foot rug. If your room already has a carpet,xxnx2016 consider placing a small rug on one side of the bed. Sheepskin rugs are great for this.xxnx2016 Add a nightstand with all of the necessities. This will make your bed space appear more luxurious and comfortable. Try to include a lamp, a clock, and some flowers,xxnx2016 either in a pot or vase. If you like to read, consider having a stack of books. If you tend to get thirsty at night, have a glass and a carafe filled with water; xxnx2016 this will save you late-night trips to the kitchen for a glass of water.
