A bedroom in a sunny Brooklyn, New York apartment featured on Homepolish gets a soft rustic vibe courtesy of flea market finds. Storied pieces like the painted wood headboard and old pastoral painting add charming appeal. Mismatched end tables are a homey touch that builds one of a kind character. An assortment of embellishments like the books and short sprigs of lavender create a lived-in look that does not feel cluttered.
You should have as many family photos as you wish in other rooms in the house, but it's best to keep the bedroom's artwork less emotionally loaded.

And then lighten things up with colorful linens and keep things streamlined with bright a white ceiling and modern bedside sconce.

It's the first thing a child will consider when putting together their bedroom, but adults tend to shy away from decorative themes. A theme can be a powerful unifying device, not to mention calming.

Out of every space in a home, your bedroom is without a doubt the most personal. Even though it's an area many of your guests may never actually see, it still deserves a great deal of attention. It's where you recharge, reflect on the day, and even spend time reading a book, so it only makes sense for it to feature the right color palette and furnishings. And let’s not forget that it also has to showcase your design style accurately and complement the overall aesthetic that’s reflected in other areas of your home.
