Here are some tips on how to transform your haven in a few simple steps. A bedroom is a place where you will spend a lot of your time. It is therefore important that it feels good and reflects your taste in decoration.
Cozy master bedroom
First of all, you can change the colour of the walls and choose a warm shade that will draw in the natural light of a room. Here, for example, we have chosen a warm, bright white to bring out the colour of the floor and the natural wood accessories.

When you choose a neutral colour such as white, it is easier to change the decorating accessories later and completely transform the style of the room. So, if you like to change your decor often, this is a tip to keep in mind.
Here, we chose decorative elements in shades of blue, such as a rug or a cushion, which blend perfectly with the white of the walls for a sleek look. Natural materials such as rattan, bamboo or wood complete the decor and once again coordinate with the warm white of the walls.
Creating a colourful accent wall
If your room seems a bit boring, go for a bold accent wall! When you choose to highlight just one wall, you can dare to use colour. Here, a peachy pink creates a delicate, feminine room.
It is a common misconception that using colour in a room, especially a bedroom, will create a smaller room effect. On the contrary! Using a bright but lighter colour, for example on the back wall, will draw the eye to that wall and give the impression of a wider space.

Choosing colour zoning
Colour zoning is a great, affordable and creative way to spruce up a bedroom. Whether it's to create a sense of distinct zones or to catch the eye, this technique of painting different shapes on your walls is guaranteed to please.
Here, this arch in orange hues creates a zone with wooden hooks to hang hats and clothes on.

In this room, we choose colour zoning to replace a headboard. A circle or even a half moon can be painted to simulate the sunset. A small wooden shelf has been added to hold plants and decorative accessories. You have to admit it's soothing. A headboard for under $40 is a big yes!

In this children's room, colour zoning has been used to outline the desk area, while adding a very feminine touch to the room. You will need a string and a pencil to draw the desired shape and then masking tape to avoid distorted lines.

One room, two purposes
Sometimes our living space does not allow us to dedicate an entire room to one purpose. This is the case, for example, with this small boudoir space, which serves as both a lounge and a guest room.
To create a distinct zone, French doors are used, this time found for less than $50 on a classified ad site. One side is painted white and the other steel blue. So you have a room that looks different when viewed from the inside and the outside. It's a great way to dare to use colour without going too far out of your comfort zone. Once again, accessories with a few echoes of colour, such as the rug, help to create a balanced look.
