Color pops. Liven up a plain bedroom with an accent wall covered in fabulously peacock wallpaper. For the truly fearless, choose a contrasting color for the bedside tables and cushions. If you prefer to limit your pops of color to one place, choose a white or wood headboard and tables, and layer on neutral bedding.
This master bedroom, designed by Claire Paquin, features a corner nook with a modern chair and ottoman that continues the theme for this room of comfort and relaxation. The furniture is covered in an attractive white and gray pattern, and a lacquered end table was placed next to the piece. A plain neutral Roman shade completes the look.
A white bedroom is saved from being plain and boring thanks to colorful, well-chosen accessories. An eye-catching turquoise headboard serves as a focal point, while contemporary X-base footstools with floral upholstering provide extra seating at the end of the bed.
Although outfitted in a neutral color palette, this master bedroom is anything but plain. Birch tree bed posts climb up to the vaulted ceiling for a striking effect that visually adds height, while also making the space feel cozy. Other natural elements, like the wood beams and stone fireplace, give the room a rustic look.
Ornate and sophisticated, the highlight of this master bedroom is the powerful wallpapered accent wall -- a simple design strategy that can make a plain room sing. Tones of beige and gray keep the room comfortable and keep the room from feeling too busy, as does the symmetry brought by the matching end tables and lamps.
One of the easiest ways to add interest to your bedroom is with striped, floral and geometric bedding. Instead of plain choices, opt for coordinating but not matching sheets, blankets, duvet covers, bedspreads or quilts, and accent pillows to make your bed an interesting and inviting focal point.
Because this small bedroom must be shared by two young girls, spacial planning was very important. A lofted bed for the older of the two girls creates room for the younger girl's crib and a storage or play space. A bunk bed can replace the setup as the girls age. A light, monochromatic palette was used to make the room feel larger than it is. Fabrics and accents with distinct patterns and textures are used to make the space from feeling too plain.
Forget plain old paintings and sketches -- the art in this teen's room is a unique combination of antique tennis racquets and an oversized metal initial. Rustic plaid linens are complemented with contemporary-inspired -- and matching -- striped pillow, throw blanket and window treatments. Antique record boxes serve as a storage space-packed bedside table.
Deep navy blue curtains, throw pillows and a throw blanket add depth to the color scheme in this neutral bedroom. Patterned green pillows add extra color to the plain, white bed linens. The traditional bedside tables are framed in gold with a mirror top on the bottom shelf. A neutral tufted headboard blends with the walls adding subtle texture.
