Stripped Down: Bare & Spare Bedrooms

Stripped Down: Bare & Spare Bedrooms

Decorating is one of my absolute favorite things to do. I love spending weekends rearranging items in my home and hitting up local barn sales and flea markets to find the next best thing. While all of that is seriously fun, sometimes it's good to strip everything down to the basics and just go bare.

The bedroom is a calming and almost tranquil space in my home. I enjoy muted colors and all white bedding so that nothing gets me too excited right before I'm ready for bed. I keep the accessories to an absolute minimum. The bed is low to the ground so it's practically effortless to fall right into it and I have the bedside tables at a height that make the lamps they hold reached to turn on and off.

Not everyone views their bedroom the same as I do, but I highly recommend trying to incorporate a bit of sparseness to your sleeping area. Use light colors, minimal accessories and only necessary furniture. After all, it's just you (and maybe your loved one) enjoying the space, so there's no need to go overboard.
