Of all the rooms in your home, your bedroom is arguably the most personal. Don't let it feel bland or generic—read on for some tips on creating a unique oasis which satisfies all the senses.
Make Your Bed a Nest
Every kid loves a bed fort, and the big kid version is a DIY canopy bed. Canopies are whimsical, elegant, and can be yours with some curtain rails or industrial pipe, and a few yards of fabric. Nothing ordinary here. (Image via This is Glamorous)
Create a Cool Headboard
If a canopy isn't your style, look to your headboard. You don't need to purchase a whole new bed—if you have a divan or box frame, the possibilities are endless. Use paint, art, furniture or even salvaged building materials (a painted door in the room above, via My Domaine, steals the show) to give presence to your bed. When you're bored of the look, simply switch it out for something new.
Piles of Pillows
If you ask me, the best thing about sleeping in a hotel is all the pillows. Bring that luxury to your bedroom with an abundance of them, and don't be afraid to mix colors, patterns and textures (like Lovely Little Rants' bed above). It's an easy addition that can entirely change the look and feel of a bedroom, and can be switched out seasonally.
Do a (Grown Up) Photo Wall
Nope, not just for teenagers. The bedroom is prime location for displaying personal photos, and I love the look of a wall plastered in then. Instead of Blu Tak and polaroids, consider a more designed variation on the theme—a grid of framed pictures, an ixxi collage like the one above (I've got one of these myself, which displays most-beloved Instagram photos), or an oversized frame to be filled and hung.
