Less is more. If you're Coco Chanel, you always take one thing off. If you're one of these peaceful bedrooms, you take it all off. The bare walls of these tranquil sleeping spaces show that you can still have a beautiful, well-styled and, yes, finished room without artwork or anything else dressing the walls.

It's common knowledge that a piece of art hung high in a bedroom will draw the eye up, but Jane Cameron's Australia home (featured on Design*Sponge) shows us that bare walls can do the same thing with negative space.

Another way to highlight height in a bare bedroom? A light fixture attached to a really long cord, like in this shot of a quilt from Aura Home.
