A bed is the focal point that anchors the look of your entire bedroom. Hence, choosing the right bedframe will set the foundation of how you will style your bed and its surroundings. Opt for a minimalistic but well-constructed and sturdy frame that is versatile enough for your design and styling needs.


#2 Indulge in and layer with luxurious fabrics and cushions

Outfit your bedroom with beautiful and luxurious fabrics as nothing adds comfort to a bedroom like beautiful sheets. Mix cushions in different shapes, colours, designs and textures for a current look, and display in a non-uniform arrangement. Cushions are also a great way to juxtaposition design elements or colours. Throws are still great styling elements to add on to for an added designer touch.


#3 Make the headboard a focal point

The space above the headboard is the perfect place and a focal point to showcase everything from art to vintage objects and fabrics. Consider decorative art prints or an accent mirror to spruce up the space over your bed.


#5 Don’t neglect your bedside styling

Complete your bed styling with the addition of bedside tables to provide functionality and visual interest. After all, this is the space in a bedroom that hides untapped styling potential. Style and personalise with accent items like a table lamp and utilise decorative trays or baskets to store accessories and other items.
