In a bit of a rut in the bedroom? I mean, design-wise? (We can’t help with the other thing.) Good news: We’ve collected eight creative, unconventional ideas that will surely refresh your space and give you something to really get excited over when you pop into bed each night.

Above: We see a lot of rug layering in living rooms, but it’s fresh for the boudoir. Wrap them around the corner of the bed, like here in this shot from Triibe’s Bedroom Styling Workshop, captured by Nicolette Johnson.

Here’s a simple solution that combines a headboard, side table and bedside sconce with a simple sheet of plywood. Spotted in an apartment from Swedish real estate site Bjurfors, via Gravity.

Two side tables are better than one. Just keep them visually slim and make sure the finishes play nice together, like here on Domino.

No headboard? No problem. Hand a long, drapey macrame weaving, as spotted here on Citizens of Style‘s Instagram, via Domino.

Try turning the wall behind the bed into one big piece of art with a statement color and some pattern. This bedroom belongs to a French home featured on Design Sponge.

Who says a bedside table needs to be beside the bed? Play around with the placement of what’s in the room and don’t feel bound to any “rules.” This bedroom from Domino has daybed vibes.

Most people would position the bed in this long, narrow room with its head against the window, but this layout in Justina Blakeney’s book The New Bohemians (via Smile and Wave) actually offers more space. It’s a reminder to play around with the floor plan of your room.

And finally, for something really bold, paint the walls and the furniture to match, as seen here on Femina.
