You don’t have to decorate your bedroom in keeping with the rest of your home – this is your private space and you can give it the charming theme that suits you.

You want to be sure you have matching colors in the carpet, bedding and window treatments to pull the room together.

Decide which pieces of furniture and accessories you want to replace – in particular, think about artwork, floor lamps and reading lights. Consider colors and themes that go with the rooms overall design, try to buy pieces that are practical, such as a cedar chest for the foot of the bed, or headboards with shelves on them for lamps, alarm clocks or books. If you want a TV in the room, you will have to plan it so that it is situated in an area that is comfortable for viewing from the bed – putting the TV remote on a tether tied to the head board can also be useful.
