If you want to retreat to a relaxing space at the end of the day (and who doesn't?), you don't have to invest thousands of dollars for a top-to-bottom makeover. All of these ideas are simple enough to pull off in a day or two and will make a dramatic difference in your room.
Make the most of high ceilings with draped fabric. Go for a panel rather than a rouched curtain and save pounds. Turn a large bedroom into a cosy retreat with a DIY canopy that makes a delightful focal point. Bring in a decorative side table and yellow lamp for a modern twist on traditional country features such as grainy oak beams and a traditional timber bed frame. Layer the bed with pretty yellow linen and cushions in a tasteful mix of patterns that continue the same low-key charm.
Lighting is an integral part of any interior home design, particularly in the bedroom where lighting is important for function and aesthetics. You'll want to add soft, warm lighting to help encourage relaxation, as well as mimic the sun during the darker winter months. In addition to overhead lights, task lighting is very important for bedside tables (so one partner can read, while the other sleeps), walk-in closets, sitting areas and other traditionally inadequately lit spaces. If creating a romantic night is top on the list, than consider controlling your lighting with a dimmer switch.
Trick the eye by papering a cupboard or wardrobe door with a fun, mural or wallpaper design. This fabulously creative idea requires minimal effort and time – just choose a wallpaper in line with your budget. Look for a design that emphasises the scale and height of the ceiling while providing a striking focal point. For a seamless look, it may help to replace obtrusive doorknobs or handles.
