Rethink How You Arrange Your Bedroom Decor

As we approach the year’s end, now’s the perfect opportunity to take a second look at your home decor and ask yourself: do I really want to enter 2019 surrounded by this? Although we recommend tending to every space inside your home, the most egregious of all (when poorly furnished) happens to be the most personal and private—your bedroom.

Today we’ll review some simple ways you can rethink and rearrange your bedroom decor for 2019, and how you can prepare yourself for a new year full of adventure, fresh style, and good fortune!

Plan for Seating: Upholstered Benches and Area Rugs

Benches Multi Upholstered Storage Bench

It’s always unfortunate when we bring best friends and guests into our bedrooms, only to find that there’s nowhere for them to sit, other than the bed itself. Don’t trap yourself in this situation; plan accordingly, with an upholstered bench that greets and entices your visitors. Against bright windows, bedroom mirrors can act as a clever contrast—redirecting light throughout your room, and onto other surfaces (expanding your perception of the space, its size and dimensions).

And who ever heard of a bedroom without cushioned flooring? A tasteful area rug will be soft on your eyes and your feet.

Cast a Spell on Anyone: Classic Nightstands and Decor

But the real magic in the bedroom happens when you nail down your aesthetic—the mood, and the aura you want to exude, from the moment you settle down, to the moment you wake up. It’s relatively easy to class-up your bedroom decor. An aged and antique nightstand sets the stage for further decorating, proclaiming your space as one that is stately, and finely furnished.

Complement your classic nightstand with another bold and vintage look: an upholstered storage bed and headboard, alluding to an earlier era altogether.

Accessible Bedroom Dressers: Practicality and Aesthetics

Much as we may want to transform our bedrooms into studio spaces and works of art, we know there’s a practicality to them at the end of the day: where else do we get dressed (when we want to pick out an outfit)?

Always reserve space in your bedroom for a bedroom dresser and mirror. Beyond being classy in its own way, a dresser vastly simplifies the process of dressing in the morning—relaxing you, and freeing up more of your thoughts for other pursuits.

Designer’s Tricks: Make the Most of Your Small Living Room

Maybe you’re in your first apartment or starter home. Or you’re leading a nomadic lifestyle with corporate transfers or military assignments. Whatever the reasons, don’t let a square-footage challenge put a damper on your living room furniture dreams. At Roses our accumulated years of experience serving households just like yours plus our research into the world’s top interior designers’ picks are now at your service. Even in a tiny space you can still live large, entertaining with a style that will make your living room furniture the standard that your friends hope to equal. Here then are some design sense and free advice for your small living room.

Coziness Is Your Friend

Okay, we admit we’re redefining “cramped” as “cozy.” But a good attitude plus smart design sense in your home furniture will win over your guests every time. The experts say one way to do this is to create an instant homey feeling in your small space, rather than pretend your room is bigger than it is (we’ll get to those tips in a bit). Embrace the smallness! Keep your loveseats and recliners close together, like on a talk-show set (imagine you’re interviewing Brad Pitt or Taylor Swift), and pull these and your well-chosen low coffee table together with a visually and texturally striking area rug. Simple but effective! You and your guests have immediate rapport. On to our next suggestion…

Tricks with Color

Light creates the illusion of more space. So you can do one or all of these with your intimate living-room space. Go nuts with the cool accent lamps, deck the walls with lovely mirrors, amplifying your room’s natural and artificial light, and/or make your walls a brilliant white. Display a favorite collection of paintings or photos in matching white frames for an art-museum look that won’t come off as cluttered. On that note, if your little living room has one or two windows letting the sun in, go for light-colored window treatments such as draperies or shades.

 living room ottoman

The Versatile Ottoman

While we love coffee tables as much as you likely do, they’re not for everybody. Maybe the best way to make your small room “pop” visually is by using two or more living room ottomans as tables instead. Better still, for a bigger party you can clear them off and voila, extra chairs at your service!
