If you are short on inspiration then perhaps the ideas below can help you create the harmonious atmosphere you are hoping to achieve in your master bedroom.
1) Wall color
In a bedroom you really want colors that are conducive to sleep and easing you into morning. For this reason you do not want harsh or bright colors in your bedroom. Pastels and earth tones work great. Lighter colors create a more restful atmosphere and should be considered strongly over darker colors.
While you want to make sure you have adequate furniture in your bedroom you should also take care that your bedroom isn’t overcrowded with furniture. That will lend a cramped and cluttered atmosphere to your room that will hamper sleep.
These are great for practical purposes in a Master bedroom. In addition to the practical reasons to have mirrors in this room however, they also lend the illusion of more space. You can make up for a small amount of clutter in your bedroom by using mirrors to make the room look more spacious than it actually may be.
Soft lighting and lighting zones are recommended for a master bedroom. Lighting is important as it also lends the allusion of more space. However, lighting is also practical and while you may agree with your partner on many issues there are some nights when one partner can sleep while the other cannot. Rather than leaving the room, having a soft lamp or sconce in the corner with a dimmer switch will allow you to read while your partner sleeps.
The larger the windows in your bedroom the better. These allow light to stream into the room. Remember that light is very important and windows allow natural light to filter into the room. Make sure however, that the window coverings in your bedroom aren’t so dark that they stifle the light and make the room look smaller rather than larger.
Hopefully these suggestions will give you a little inspiration when it comes to decorating your master bedroom. Remember to work closely with your partner and get his or her input on design features, as this is his or her room too. By following these suggestions and your own creativity you should be able to create a relaxing and romantic atmosphere for you and your partner.
