Welcome back to How to Decorate like a Adult! We’re very excited for today’s room of focus, the bedroom. We’ll be going through what we think are the most important items, in order, to getting the bedroom sanctuary that you deserve.
Do not skip this step! A good nights rest calls, no, begs for good bedding! Good bedding is a sure fire step into ‘adulting.’
Start with your foundation, we suggest Bedface‘s super sleep sets that include 1 duvet cover + 1 fitted sheet + 1 flat sheet + 2 pillowcases. They come in great color combos, and great prices (SERIOUSLY, and they’re on sale right now.) If you have more to spend, check out Flaneur‘s dyed to order bed sets that include 1 flat sheet + 1 fitted sheet + 2 pillowcases. They come in the most gorgeous color collections some of which are lovingly named after artists like Matisse & Manet. Parachute‘s bedding is also a great bet! Need bedding that’s a little more out of the box? Check out the artist & designer collection at ZigZag Zurich.

Find yourself a bed frame that fits your style. Currently loving both of these bed frames. The mid-century style wood bed frame is simple, sleek, and goes with anything. The iron frame is a beautiful throw back that just won’t quit and can easily adapt to any space. To make this iron frame even better, if you need to change things up just add a coat of paint!

For extra seating, and an easy styling space, a bench at the end of the bed does the job great. Plus, it’s a great place to put on and take of your shoes after a long day at work.

This nightstand hides the clutter (admit it, we hall have it) while still adding style to your space.
Loving this round minimalist side table!

A floating shelf as a nightstand is a great way to save on space.

Lately have been obsessed with chairs as end tables! Depending on the chair, it could be an inexpensive choice and extra seating is always helpful if your goal is to become the ‘hostess with the mostess.’
I got a little carried away because I love a good nightstand! There is so much versatility that comes with picking out your side tables. I like to think that the nightstand is a functional accessory in your room. It’s there to hold your things and add style.

Add identical lighting to each side of your bed to make it look like you really know what you’re doing. No more tacky thrift store lamps by your bed, please! I’m especially loving how Avenue Lifestyle replaced their overhead light with wires that drop down to bedside lights! It’s artwork all on it’s own. Also enjoying the collection of framed artwork and how they styled it. Which brings me to my next step…

Adding art to your space personalizes it. I like the idea of adding art with a personal touch to your bedroom, possibly a photo from a special place or a painting that you’ve fallen in love with.
Your mirror is obviously functional but it will also add the illusion of more space in your room. Additionally, mirrors can be so much fun! They come in all sorts of sizes and shapes to choose from.

If your have the space, make a corner of your bedroom worth escaping to read, write, or meditate in your bedroom. You can define this space with a small rug, a comfy chair, a light source, and a table to rest your books and tea on.
Children & Guest bedrooms

The same rules apply when decorating your kid and guest bedrooms. However, play up your child’s playfulness in colors, shapes, and fun art. As they grow older, consider adding a lofted bed to their space. Once they’re ready for a space they can truly call their own, put a hang out area or a desk for homework underneath the lofted bed. As for your guests, they need some of the same key basics that your master does. Good sheets, a little wall decor, simple nightstands, and a bedside light goes a long way for your guests. For a small, possibly multipurpose room, I love the idea of a day bed. A day bed in your office, yoga room, etc. will come in handy if you don’t have a designated guest room.
We’re hoping you are enjoying this series as much as we are! Next week we’re diving into the home office.
