A Fresh Coat of Paint

Give your room a fresh coat of paint. Be sure to choose a shade that can stand the test of time.

Silk Window Panels

Add long dramatic window panels in silk or a a satin blend (which are more affordable) for a luxurious look.

Additional Seating

Place a love seat, contemporary sofa or a bench at the foot of the bed for added seating. Be sure to measure the foot of the bed and the empty space provided so you don't place a large piece of furniture in too small of a space. The scale of the space is very important.

Purchase a duvet or a comforter in a luxurious shimmer fabric or metallic sheen with added accent pillows for the look of luxury.

Update Your Decor

Be sure to add updated decor to your room that resembles your style and personality. Items such as a small vase of white flowers, mirrored picture frames on the night stands, a floor-length large frame mirror, framed family photos on the wall or a unique chair and round table in the corner are all ideas that can make your bedroom inviting and relaxing.
