LITTLE DETAILS TO ADD TO YOUR BEDROOM
‘WE SHAPE OUR HOMES, AND THEN OUR HOMES SHAPE US’
Our homes represent us, and vice versa. It is a more mutual relationship than we realize. We choose our home and decide how we will fill it. How we will use it as a canvas to convey ourselves to the world. But our homes have a role in forming us as well. This is why we must design our homes, especially bedroom well when it comes to home décor. If your home is cluttered and there is no sense of unity among the rooms, your mind will begin to feel the same way. When you take care of your home, you take care of yourself.
The key to making your room your “happy place” is to make it aesthetically pleasing. Our bedrooms are the place we relax and escape the rest of the world for a while. Here are some ways to make your room aesthetically pleasing, and the place you’ll always want to escape to.

IDEAS FOR YOUR BEDROOM
It is very tempting to decorate your home based on what you think will be appealing to others. How often do we choose colors and styles and artwork with someone else’s voice in the back of our mind, drowning out our own preferences?
One of the most important things to keep in mind while decorating is that your home is about you. You are the one who has to be comfortable there. You are the one that needs to look at the color of the walls and stare at the painting above the mantle every day.
While it is good to have a home that is visually appealing, you must not design your home around other people’s opinions and preferences. Your own desires should rule. Your home should represent your lifestyle, not a false image that you feel pressured to present.
A famous saying says:
‘As we evolve, so our homes should too.’
BRING COLOR TO THE BEDROOM
If you keep your bedroom’s walls and furniture neutral, it’s easy to add bursts of color whenever and wherever you wish. Pick one or two colors you love and then repeat the hues in vibrant artwork, bold bedding, and colorful accents. Here, a green duvet, red throw blanket, and colorful pillows energize the otherwise neutral space.
- TRY BOLD NEW BED LINEN
Nothing looks and feels fresher than new bedding. If you love the idea of new bedding but are short on storage space for bulky comforters and quilts, consider a duvet, switching out the duvet cover every season. Here, shiplap walls work well with navy blue bedding and drapes, as well as with warm red accents. Khaadi, Gul Ahmed, Nishat Linen, So Kamal and Sapphire offer a variety of bed linen. You can create a theme with your bedlinen ie: matching cushions, wall clock, throws and bed linen. These types of themes are easily available at RIZARIES.
Create a sweet spot where a kid will truly love to retreat. Tucking a twin bed with storage below into a corner is a space saver and replicates the cozy feel of a daybed. Stack pillows in the corner to create a welcoming spot to read or listen to music. A perfect canopy hung from the ceiling creates a whimsical look that will make their room feel extra special.
LET IT SHINE
Layer different types of lighting throughout the room: Ambient lighting to illuminate the entire area, task lighting to read and see what’s inside drawers. Moreover, an accent lighting to set the mood. White string lights have been a go to every time They are simple and cheap. In addition, they add an extra oomph to your room. They are also perfect for when you want to turn off your bright lights and have a more relaxed lighting.
‘SIMPLICITY IS THE ULTIMATE PERFECTION’
It is a particularly difficult subject to give general advice on, but I will try. Monochrome walls can look stylish, but our eye looks for interesting details everywhere. If we do not see anything, we feel bored.

Wall décor can take different forms, meaning that you are not obliged to hang a golden-framed picture on every wall. Paintings, posters, photos, panels, murals, tapestries, maps, collections of postcards or hat. I could go on and on, but I think you’ve got the idea. You can turn a dull wall into a work of art is simpler than it seems.
