There’s nothing romantic about harsh, bright white lights, so unless you have a thing for sterile hospital waiting rooms, be considerate of your bedroom lighting. The essential here is keeping your lighting options low and warm. A beautiful chandelier on a dimmer switch, for instance, can add instant drama and ambiance, while vintage sconces can create a pleasant soothing glow. Not able to install either? You can never go wrong with candlelight.
Stylishly simplified, the bedroom is as easy on the eyes as it is on the body. A modern four-poster bed bridges past and present and gives the otherwise contemporary space a dash of Southern romanticism. A quilted silk duvet in a soft shade of gray, navy pillows, and an antique needlepoint lumbar pillow in navy and white highlight the bed. A fresh coat of white paint freshens the room without making it too bright to be relaxing. Contemporary patterned fabric panels draw the eye to the windows and to the view beyond.
Painted walls are a practical choice at this stage of the game. Paint has a fresh contemporary feeling, and, better yet, it's the least expensive, fastest way to make a big change in a room. You'll want to tell your child that paint looks a lot darker and more vivid on four walls than in a tiny paint chip and that professional designers usually advocate choosing a color two or three steps lighter than the color you like best on the paint chip. That said, buy the smallest container you can of several colors in the running, and have your child paint an area about three feet square on one wall with each of the colors. Let your child choose the hue that looks best. (One big exception to starting with the paint color is if your child has already picked out a fabric. Then, you'll probably want to suggest paint to coordinate with the lightest color in the fabric.)
When you have a small room, it becomes a necessity to utilize every inch of space that is available, in the most compact manner. Like you can see in this picture, the space for keeping a study table has been saved, and a study table has been created in the wardrobe space on the wall. The space above the table has been designed to be utilized for storage and the chair is just big enough to fit inside the leg space when not in use.
