Your bedroom is one of the most vital parts of your home. This is where you spend a good part of your time as you sleep or rest. This is why it is always important to ensure that it stands out by having an elegant look. You do not want it to look the way it was five years ago. By applying different bedroom ideas, you can update it to look trending. Here are 10 ways to update your bedroom:
Spruce the space with paint
A simple way to update your bedroom is to spruce it with fresh paint. This is a great way to change the overall feeling of your space. You can apply a different paint color or just reapply the same paint. Regardless of the way you decide to do it, your bedroom will be renewed and make it look more appealing.
Upgrading your bedroom baseboards is a great way to make it feel more custom and luxe. You should upgrade the baseboards, so that they can compliment your bedroom styles and design. Upgrading involves either painting the current ones or installing new ones. After doing this, your bedroom will have a finished feel and look brighter.
Purchase new and luxurious bed linens
Your bed is the focal point of your bedroom. To make it a better haven, you can invest in new and luxurious bed linens. You can also purchase a new comforter set or duvet with your preferred patterns and colors. For higher quality sleep, remove lumpy pillows and buy hypoallergenic ones. Match the bedroom decor accent and colors around your set to give the entire
room a more cohesive look.
Old light fixtures make your bedroom look boring and outdated. Change them by installing brighter switch plates and have modern pendant to make the room more custom. Remove your old bedside lamps and have new models that match your design. Invest in LED lightbulbs for more energy efficiency and durability.
Dress your bedroom windows with new curtains not only to enhance privacy, but also promotes the overall look of your space. New curtains enhance the style of your room. Choose the ones that will allow the right amount of light to filter in, match the bedding and overall bedroom color and decor.
You can transform the overall look of your bedroom by investing in smaller pieces of furniture such as comfy chair or nightstands. Remove the older pieces and have the new pieces that will make your room look new. If you have the money you can invest in large pieces such as a new dresser or bed frames.
Investing in a new rug can make your bedroom feel more relaxing and finished. Look for a rug to place underneath your bed to
offer you a plush landing. Choose the one with a neutral style and color because it will be timeless. You can also decide to be bold by investing in one with great patterns and bright colors.
8. Try new bedroom décor accents
Look for individual trinkets that add personality to your bedroom. Go for pieces that fit your preference and taste. Some of the pieces that will make your space more appealing include bouquet of fresh flowers, customised picture frames, pieces of arts, jewelry box among others.
You can make the blank bedroom walls look more appealing by hanging family photos or favorite quotes. Bring in new artworks that match the season or those that are trending. You can also transform the look of the frames by painting using coordinating or glitzy gold color.
You might not have money to buy new items, but can give your bedroom a new look by just rearranging the items inside it. Change the position of the bed and other pieces of furniture. You can also decide to exchange the curtains if your bedroom has several windows. You will be amazed how such simple rearrangements can make your bedroom look updated.

An old house can be the key to your dream house. Do you agree? Sounds crazy but not so for Alison Jennison, a young designer who amazingly transformed an old townhouse into her dream home. Located in Brooklyn, the home’s fresh, modern, and beautiful look portrays Alison’s great taste, creativity, and professionalism. I know you may be wondering what magic she used to give such an ancient house life successfully. Don’t fret, sit back and continue reading to grasp insight as I take you through its stunning interior transformation.
Though the house still has history traits, Alison did a perfect job in its orientation and layout. Initially, the fireplaces were six, but she got rid of them except the one found on the third floor. She relocated it in its original form to the sitting room. At the rear of the primary living space, she replaced the cramped corridor with a wall of glass, allowing more light and fresh air. To maintain the old style and feeling, the young designer painted the walls white, put pale floors and the warm wood tones. As an expert, she chose furnishings with an old touch.
The ground of the cozy living room rocks the vintage Afghan kilim. Thanks to Roost which supplied her with a curvaceous cane chair that perfectly complements the ground. Jennison’s chunky throw knit and a leather Avo pillow also adds to the list. You will love the kitchen which she enhanced its dark cabinetry and open shelves accented with brass. You will also see an upright piano, placed neatly by the corner as a reminder of her husband’s childhood.
Alison and her husband got inspired by their favorite hotel, the New York City, in creating their master suite. Upstairs, some walls had to go, creating room for a tub in their bedroom. You will find wide plank flooring that runs straight into the bathroom. A pocket door separates the two rooms. While lying in bed, you can see whoever is in the tub. To add a touch of romance to the bathroom, Alison used the claw foot design, and custom painted it in Off Black by Farrow & Ball.
You will fall head over heels with the cheerful nursery that comes with a colorful finishing. It portrays a combination of history and the Jennison’s favorite elements. Looking at the artworks and the glowing metal hearth, you get to experience Brooklyn’s coolness and love. Don’t you think that this was the main reason why she chooses this house for her family? Who wouldn’t?
A native Chicagoan, and a recent Southwest Michigan transplant; Jean Stoffer built her design firm organically with referrals from satisfied clients. Most known for her kitchen designs, she enjoys working with homeowners who love their home, neighborhood, friends, and most of all family. Since (let’s face it) the kitchen is where everyone gathers, it should be the room most loved, most functional and most pleasing aesthetically.
Jean concentrated solely on that center of the home for many years. Learning how people cook, eat, gather and live in their kitchens and then designing for each unique family. As clients enlarged their focus to more and more rooms: bathrooms, laundry rooms, mudrooms, Butler’s pantries, walk-in food pantries, they knew Jean understood them – their aesthetic, their lifestyle, and their budget. They involved her in more and more spaces. It kind of made sense – so many of the same materials are used in those spaces. And there was already a good relationship with the client.
In recent years Jean has been asked to take on “whole home” projects. That means coordinating all selections for the entire home – both exterior and interior (Not including landscaping!). That means from the window and roof selection till the last throw pillow and everything in between. With this new phase, she knew help was needed and called on the woman she could trust the most – her daughter, Grace Start! Grace has been a crucial addition and brings a fresh young flair to the décor aspect of our projects.
Rounding out the design team is Katie Borchardt, who has valuable experience in high-end kitchen design after working at O’Brien Harris and Christopher Peacock in Chicago. Katie has great design sense, excellent space planning intelligence and produces beautiful technical drawings for all our projects.
Liz Kamarul and her husband just sold this beautiful bohemian Portland home. Bohemian homes are unmistakable with its bright and colorful, textile-rich, laid-back ambiance. If you agree that nothing works best with patterned designs than another pattern, then you’d love to this Portland apartment.
Enter the living space and feel the warmth and comfort of home. The glass entrance door is situated between two large windows, where natural light is welcome to pass through to instantly brighten up the space. Plenty of seating will make you quite comfortable. Amid the black geometric wall is a couch lined with throws of different shapes, sizes and textures. Parallel to it is a photo wall gallery with a collection of stunning views in exquisite frames. Below the display are two nicely contoured, cushioned chairs with curved metal legs for a clean-lined look. The wall is contrastingly coated in white, yet perfectly complements the room’s entire color theme.
Earthy tones of furniture, decor, and the wood flooring blend well with bold Boho hues. The pieces look bulky and heavy, such as the center table and glass top round table, but are compensated with their white and mostly subtle colors. The kitchen adapts the same color combination, with light brown counter tops and shelves, white backsplash and black ceiling. Statement lighting over the square island with elegant stools create a cozy setting. The breakfast nook is just as lovely, with a small round table and two sleek chairs sitting by the window. A lamp pendant hangs lowly overhead, which when lit would enhance the flamingo wall mural.
The hallway leading to the bedroom features a wall with modern artwork of tree-shaped designs. A thin bed draped in textile and a few floor cushions maintain functionality within the space. Like the living room sofa, the bed rests on a black wall, layered with sheets and blankets after the other and Morocco-inspired accessories.
Soft fur, frills, pillows, and carpets lay wherever bare space may be, as expected of a Boho home. Sheepskin rugs, bird ornaments, animal sculptures, decor and textile with animal prints, patterned murals and wall hangings complete the jungle theme. The addition of greenery makes the Boho home even more vibrant. Big or small, wall-hung or placed in intricate vases, pots, or woven baskets, the house plants breathe in life across all the rooms of the jungle retreat.
Shannon Tate is a testament to the fact that interior design is about far more than aesthetics–it is a matter of capturing an individual’s persona and life experiences in a finite space. She is known for her ability to see to the heart of who her clients are and create spaces for them that are not only a reflection of that heart, but that also support them in leading with their best in life. Having what many would call an eclectic professional background, working in a variety of artistic fields, among them, acting, fine arts, fashion and writing, and then a 5 year stint as a Health & lifestyle coach and private chef, she finally followed a lifelong urge and founded Shannon Tate Interiors in May of 2012. True to her Renaissance woman history, when she designs a space, she comes at it from multiple angles, pairing her keen artistic eye with her powerful sense of empathy as well as training in Reiki and in depth working knowledge of Feng Shui. She firmly believes that our homes are powerful conduits for change and essential parts of creating the lives we desire.
