Since we spend about a third of our lives in bed, it stands to reason the bedroom should be restful and beautiful. To achieve such an oasis of calm, it’s important to have a vision for your room, one that is uniquely you, before picking out new furniture. Will it be romantic, masculine, country, beachy or xxx? Will it use the same palette as the rest of the house, or be unique? Clip pictures out of magazines or from Pinterest to get ideas. Some of these you should bring in to the showroom to get help realizing that décor look.
The Most Important piece of Furniture is … the Mattress
The right mattress makes all the difference in getting a great night’s rest. There are many options but the key to deciding is testing them out. By lying on them for at least five minutes, you’ll get a sense of what suits — firm or soft, made of memory foam or coils, pillowtop or a combination of the three.
The Bedroom Set
This again depends on you. Some people, especially tall people, don’t like footboards for good reason, so you may have to pick a bed frame that comes only with a headboard. Whatever you choose – whether the bed and dressers and night tables match or are an eclectic choice – should fit with your overall design choices. Talking to the salesperson, and showing them your storyboard of ideas (from magazines and online pictures), will steer you in the right direction. A good salesperson will have a good eye for design and will be able to show you options you might not have thought about before, and will help you keep a consistent visual theme including wood finish and style.
Consider the room’s natural light sources when creating the furniture layout plan. If morning light streams in a large window, you may want to place the bed away from it so you’re not woken up early although black out linings on drapery will prevent this as well. Bedside lamps will add task light for nighttime reading. Best to put an overhead light on a dimmer so you get enough light for dressing but can lower in the evening.
Add Some Décor
Décor makes a room personal and adds colour – this includes your choice of bedding and pillows, but also artwork. Of all rooms in the home, this is a great place to display family photos. Bedrooms are meant to be cozy, so the more texture the better. In addition to a bedspread or duvet, you can add faux fur or knitted throws, cashmere accent pillows, a reading chair in wool, drapes in rich velvet. A rug also adds texture and keeps feet cozy and warm. In the summer, when the aim is for a cooler, fresher, breezier feel, remove the wool carpet and cashmere throws, and add cotton, seagrass, and lighter colours.
Keep It Clutter Free
To help keep the room visually clean, look for a bedside table that includes storage and routing for cables. This will conceal power cords for lamps, alarm clocks and cell phone chargers.

Considering that fully a quarter of all people work from home at least some of the time, we don’t invest enough energy or money into how that home office looks and feels. And research suggests that when you feel good and comfortable in your home office, productivity increases. Rather than use up all those pieces furniture left over from college days, carefully choose new furniture that is ergonomically correct for your body – and looks good too.
The dining room is making a comeback. Although open-concept main floors are the norm, some homes still have a cozy dining room, and in more traditional homes, the dining room never left. Even if you don’t use it all that often, you still want it to look great, because the reality is many of us still like to entertain in the dining room.
Fall is such a festive time of the year to entertain — the chapter has closed on summer grilling parties and the pressures of large holiday family gatherings are not yet upon us. It is the perfect time of year to invite a small group of friends over for an intimate dinner that celebrates nothing but the season of bounty.
Everyone needs a special place to get away from the stresses of daily life. For men, it can be the golf course or the local pub. Or it could be some place right in your own home.
Who knew dining could come in so many shapes and sizes? The trick is figuring out which one is right for you. While your table’s appearance is important for working with your home’s décor, having it fit the space and offer enough seating is even more critical.Who knew dining could come in so many shapes and sizes?
A sofa can be one of your biggest furniture investments — both financially and in the impact it has on your room. There is nothing worse than falling in love with one in the store and shelling out hard-earned cash to make it yours only to lug it home and realize it just doesn’t fit the space. Although finding the right-size sofa seems simple, there’s more to it than making sure it can fit through the front door. Keep in mind a few tips and tricks and you will be sure to love your new piece even more in your home than you did in the showroom.
Moving in with your new spouse or partner is exciting. But the reality is very few couples see eye to eye on decorating decisions. If you’re like most couples today, you’re also bringing some furniture with you. You don’t want to create tension especially when you’re just starting out so the following are a few tips we’ve developed from our many years of helping couples find a middle ground on how to furnish their home.
Shopping for a sofa is a big thing. It takes a central spot in the living room where family and friends gather, so you want one that both looks good and is comfortable. With all the options on the market, deciding can be difficult so let’s start with a fundamental decision — leather or fabric – by weighing the pros and cons of both.
While interior design has a set of rules, such as proportion and balance, when it comes to style, the choices are much more individual. And like fashion, the eclectic, bohemian, mix and match look is very much in style these days. Here are some guidelines for making your mix-and-match style looks harmonious rather than cluttered.
