As for how to pick the right fixture, consider both style and size. Obviously, you want to choose an option that matches your desired aesthetic, but it’s also important to make sure that the lighting is proportionate to the area. Abbe Fenimore, the designer at Studio Ten 25, says this interior design mistake is all too common. She recommends taking measurements of the area where your lamps will be before heading to the store.
If floor space is limited but you have higher ceilings, consider adding a loft or platform for your sleeping area with storage or seating underneath. This isn’t an option for everyone, but for those who don’t mind literally climbing into bed, this layout can completely transform a space.
A few inches of extra space can be vital in a small bedroom. Part ways with your footboard-style bed frame and replace it with a simple modern headboard to finish the look of your bed.
You could also take this look a step further by decking out the room in a full-on coastal style. Here, in addition to contrasting fresh whites and pale blues, focus on including patterns that harken back to afternoons spent on the sand. For example, you may want to look for bedspreads that showcase a seashell or anchor theme. If you can, round out the whole look by using furniture and décor items made from fibers such as wicker.
That said, knowing what the trends are is just one piece of the puzzle. In order to incorporate them into your home while respecting your existing décor, you need to know how, when and where to use these trends at their best.
