Curtains add texture and a coziness to the space immediately. Just look at the above picture before we added the curtains to our master bedroom. There’s a huge difference, right?? I love these simple white sheer curtains with this modern black curtain rod. So here’s the deal, if you are sceptical about curtains, just give it a try when you are decorating your master bedroom. It’s not that big of an investment, so there’s not much of a risk here.
Instead of bold primary colors, choose soothing shades and a restful palette of monochromatic tones. Remember color theory: gentle hues of blue, lavender, or green are considered calm and serene. Rich jewel-toned hues help set the mood of coziness and comfort. These might include toasty browns, deep pomegranate, or topaz. Use toned-down versions of your favorite colors in the bedroom." That might mean choosing mauve instead of eggplant, or pumpkin instead of tangerine.
In this stylish, rustic bedroom, Minnesota based design firm Martha O’Hara Interiors took the masculine edge off a reclaimed wood ceiling and stone fireplace with contrasting fabrics. Details including the plush neutral bedding and the country plaid curtains add softness and a sense of balance to the room. There is no need for a traditional end table when you have tree stump you can paint half white. The small wing chair on the right may not seem like a typical choice for a rustic bedroom, and that's the point. It lends sophistication while providing a practical purpose.

A vintage motel sign gets a new life as a campy headboard in this rustic hotel bedroom by Locati Architects. The burnt orange walls match the sign while enhancing the room's cozy appeal. Another fantastic idea is the wood trim around the windows and walls. Raw wood was installed instead of conventional crown molding. The old books and bear lampshade on the left bring on the kitsch.

The last step to DIY bedroom decor is lighting. Our first tip is not to use overhead lighting in your bedroom. It is harsh, unflattering light that is the farthest thing from relaxing.

We love how this bedroom designed by Regan Baker boasts a bohemian feel despite the statement piece: That large-scale photograph of a traditional yellow bedroom. For a similar look, opt for a high-impact photograph of an interior that both reflects and juxtaposes your own space. And in true bohemian fashion, simply lean it against the wall instead of hanging it.
“When you’re working with a small space, a neutral palette is ideal,” Bobby Berk advises. Go for subdued, natural colors, and stick with them throughout the space. In a bedroom, for instance, opting for white cotton sheets, a white linen duvet, and a neutral quilted throw can achieve a layered look without relying on bold pops of color, which can feel cluttered
