Lastly, we were aware that we had very limited floor space for the nightstands because we actually have a pretty small master bedroom. We opted to create DIY shelves instead of nightstands with 12-in. boards and forged steel brackets. This gives us the flexibility of sliding something under the shelf on the open floor space if needed (like a dog bed or basket for the throw pillows).

In newer construction, drywall is normally hollow and supported by vertical 2x 4 wood beams (studs) that are 16” apart. If your bed is set up on a non-exterior wall, use a stud finder to mark where your bed’s wood wall beams are and cut out an alcove. Your new alcove may not be incredibly deep, but it may be all you need for small necessities like an alarm clock or some personal items.

“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

Your small bedroom may be a blessing for a better night’s sleep. The American Sleep Association recommends keeping stimulating activities out of the bedroom. They warn that distractions like the TV, internet, and work can disrupt your sleep patterns. So, the less there is to do in your bedroom, the more sleep you set yourself up for. How’s that for smart design?
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.
Hello, you asked for the color of paint that is used on on the bedroom walls with the bedding thats gray & yellow. I loved that color also but didn’t know the name of it. So I printed that photo out & brought it into “Home Depo” where they was able to mix some paints togeather to get that exzact color in the photo. I painted my bedroom with it & it looks GRATE & right on to the color in that photo.
Transform a neutral bedstead with a floral duvet and pillowcases. Finish with a wool throw in a paler sky hue for an elegant look. To make your room feel larger and brighter, paint the walls in a chalky off-white or pale shade of blue. For a more dramatic statement try a darker backdrop, which will look gorgeous with bright white and inky blue linens.
