simple bedrooms

While they may not see much traffic from the general public, they are perfect places for personalization and creating spaces that show the true colors of their inhabitants.

Design and maintenance of a great room is easy when you focus on these seven characteristics of simple bedrooms.

1. Colors that say something

The colors of a bedroom are critical when it comes to the overall feel of the room. Colors can be calming, exciting, and everything in between. There are hues, values, and intensities for every color. They express feelings, temperatures, and personality. They can be focal points or accents. Start with at least one neutral color and add onto it, but remember that the goal in this case is overall simplicity.

2. Texture and patterns

Design is nothing without these two elements! And the textures and patterns you bring into a bedroom say a lot. A bulky knit throw invites snuggling on the bed. Polka dots add a touch of playfulness. A faux-fur rug begs to be walked on in bare feet. Glitter pillows equal glamour. Mix and match these elements to find the right feel for your room.

3. Statement lighting

The days of ceiling fans and generic fixtures have passed and lighting is now one of the main ways to add personality to a room. Choose lighting that really adds to your style by considering shapes and textures, but also keep in mind the height of the ceiling. The main purposes of the room, such as sleeping and studying, can dictate what kinds of lighting you may need. Lamps and even “twinkle lights” can make great additions to certain areas of the bedroom.

4. A great bed

The bed can be the place where many of your design elements are pulled together. A decorative bed or headboard can be one of the focal points of a room and bedding can help to draw the eye. The patterns, colors, and textures of your bedding will say a lot about the style you want to convey. It’s also a place that can get cluttered quickly, so keep pillows to a minimum and use patterned bedspreads and textured throws to add to the room instead.

5. The perfect rug

Even a carpeted room can benefit from a great rug at times. Pattern and color can be added in the form of a rug and it certainly contributes to the coziness of a room. Consider the shape, size, and placement of the rug to really make a statement in a simple space.

6. A clean and organized closet

The only way to keep things simple once you’ve got the room together is to keep it clean and organized, and the closet is going to be the number one area for that. A quick purge of papers, books, toys, shoes, and clothing is a great place to start. Once you’ve got possessions under control, you can begin to assign them homes within the closet, whether on shelves, hanging, or placed in labeled bins or drawers.

7. Personalization

When the main characteristics of a room have been established, the real fun begins. Personalization is huge when it comes to making a simple bedroom a comfortable place for its occupant(s). Take interests and hobbies into account when deciding what to add to the room. A few things can be added in the form of art or posters, collectibles, sports gear, or memorabilia, but remember to keep it simple. If an item doesn’t quite jive with the design of the room, try spray-painting it or modifying it in some way. Before you know it, your fantastic, low-maintenance, simple bedroom will have come together. Enjoy!

How to Incorporate Emerald in Your Home Decor

how to incorporate emerald into your home decor

This year, Pantone has named Emerald, “a lively, radiant, lush green,” as the color of the year for 2013.  According to the Psychology of color, Emerald is a very positive hue, which feels luxurious and up-scale.  The executive director for the Pantone Color Institute, Leatrice Eiseman, explains, “The most abundant hue in nature, the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum.  Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world.”  If you could use a bit of clarity and rejuvenation, along with some luxury, adding the color of the year to your home decor may be just what you need!  Here are some simple and budget-friendly ideas for adding Emerald to your living spaces (and read this article for more tips on how to pick colors for your home!).

How to Incorporate Emerald in Your Home Decor

1. Paint!  Any DIY guru will point out that painting gives you the biggest bang for your buck as far as re-doing a space.  Not thrilled about the prospect of a green room?  Don’t worry!  Add an accent wall in a solid or patterned emerald.  Don’t want that much commitment?  Spray paint some frames for photos or a small console or end table.

2. Start small.  The easiest way to incorporate any color into your home decor is to add it in pops, here and there.  You don’t need to change your entire living space (who has the time, energy or money??) but you can easily switch out small decor items like figurines or vases.  Thrift stores can be a treasure trove of small tchotchkes and unique glassware.  Remember you can spray paint mason jars, or even use a “ DIY stained glass” technique to clear vases.  (just don’t use them for food after!)

3. Textiles.  Another inexpensive way to add pops of color is through the fabric you use in your room.  No doubt your living space has seating of some sort, and this seating is the ideal home to throw pillows.  Create your own pillow covers, or if your pillows are neutral, add green sashes, belts or bows to give them new life.  You can create your own inexpensive curtains by stenciling with fabric paint on drop cloths or sewing together flat sheets for bold stripes.  It can be pricey to find a large rug with an appropriate color and pattern, so consider painting your own or piecing together small rugs to make a large one.

4. Be artsy.  Create your own artwork for your walls.  There are many different ways to make family word art or print meaningful quotes to frame.  You can use paint, embroidery, vinyl, monograms, flowers, buttons, and mod podge on stretched canvas frames to create personalized works of art.  You don’t even need to pick up a brush to create these fabric-wrapped canvases, from Remodelaholic, and you can easily use any color or pattern will suit your living space!  Even easier, there are scads of free printables in graphic or quote form ripe for the picking – all you have to do is Google it and frame it!

5. Cover up.  Another idea to consider is how the items you bring into your room will affect the colors already present.  If your couch isn’t a neutral color, for instance, consider buying a slip cover.  You can slip cover wingback chairs, or even straight-back dining chairs if you want.
