The master bedroom is where you’ll likely spend most of your time at home. Even if you sleep most of the time, it is still important to create a luxurious, quiet space. Our designers shared their expert ideas for decorating a bedroom where you can relax and recharge your batteries.

1. Create a mood
How do you want your master bedroom to feel? Airy and dreamy? Atmospheric and sexy? Before you start decorating, find out what kind of mood you want. Once you do this, it will guide your other decisions.
2. Choose Relaxing Colors
When choosing a color palette, think calming, not disruptive. Go for neutral or soft, muted shades. For example, if you want a deep shade, choose navy blue – not electric blue.
3. Take care of the pillows
It’s your bedroom, not a showroom. So resist the urge to forget your bed pillow. Typically use two sleeping pillows, two mock pillows, and a couple of decorative pillows if you so choose.
4. Get a headboard
Regardless of whether you opt for upholstery, wood, or metal, headboards ensure that a room feels special and complete. Without it, it’s just a mattress on a frame, which is decidedly less luxurious.
5. Create Bedside Symmetry
Flank your bed with matching bedside tables and lamps. This makes the room look more polished, composed and symmetrical.
6. Add intimate lighting
As mentioned above, two bedside lamps are key. Depending on the size of your room, you can also add another light source, e.g. B. a floor lamp or a table lamp on a dresser. Just don’t rely on a harsh ceiling light that can instantly destroy the mood you’re trying to create.
7. Hang up the curtains
Curtains and drapes visually and physically warm up the room. They can also add drama and sophistication to the room, provided, of course, they go from ceiling to floor.
