Bedroom #4: LM’s Little Bit of Heaven
Why MY bedroom is the MOST beautiful:
My bedroom is beautiful because it’s simple and peaceful and calm and comfortable. It’s contemporary without being cold. I made the upholstered headboard myself, and sewed/quilted most of the linens.
My own art and the art of my friends hangs on the wall. I can see upper Manhattan’s skyline out the window from my bed, and I can also watch flocks of birds play in the huge tree right outside.
In the morning, I can see the sunrise reflecting off skyscrapers, in the daytime we get fantastic Northern exposure, and in the evening the lights are all dimmable. It’s my personal haven.
1. Don’t be afraid of bright color in the bedroom It can be done well
with proper lighting, and it invigorates you in the mornings.
2. Go all out with bedding. Make your bed as comfortable as possible. If you can’t afford it, make it yourself.
3. Make it personal and distinct. Your bedroom is the room in your home where you spend the most time, so it should really reflect your personality and contain your favorite things.
