3 Tips to Make Over Your Bedroom, Today

Short days and chilly nights are two good reasons to jump in bed with someone—but the more time you spend there, the more likely you are to notice that threadbare comforter and drab decorative pillows. So why not revamp your bed for the New Year? Here are three gorgeous beds to covet and tips to transform your own space. Because if you wind up sleeping more, you might even wind up prettier, friendlier and smarter!

Blue Bedroom

Change up the Color

Fill your room with a favorite hue for a tried-and-true mood booster. Here, the brilliant blue pillows and comforter bounce off the crisp white sheets (and those statement-making walls help, too). If you’re not ready for this big of a commitment, try getting your jolt from just a throw and some pillows—you can always trade them out when you fall in love with a new hue.

Patterned Bedroom

Perk up with Pattern

Wake up your bedroom with an invigorating all-over design. In this room, the bold Suzani print quilt is anchored by the striped bed skirt, an unexpected spot to sneak in a print. You can create pattern in other places, too: Textural details like a pin tuck, quilting or ruching have the same effect. Just mix the scale of the patterns you use to get it right.

Black and White Bedroom

Nail it with Neutrals

Grey, white or beige are easy to agree on when you’re decorating a deux, and calming, besides. This tailored bed pairs rich black and cream for a bold, luxe look but plays with different textures and finishes (matte and shiny) to keep it interesting. You don’t have to be so contrast-y, either: Mix linens in different shades of grey and they’ll all blend together in a soothing monochrome.
