The bedroom. It’s where all the magic happens. But all too often, this private space ends up being everything but the peaceful oasis it was meant to be. Do you walk into your bedroom and immediately feel overwhelmed or frustrated because it’s in such disarray? Well, your bedroom is supposed to make you feel the exact opposite. At peace. Calm. Fulfilled.

These appealing, magazine-worthy apartment bedrooms might inspire you to focus a bit more on where you get your beauty rest.
The bedroom is the last place you want to feel cramped and disorderly. You cannot expect to have an intimate, restful space if it’s nothing but a cluttered room of shame.

If your bedroom is big enough for a bed, nightstand and dresser, that’s a great start. But if your space can stand it, push the envelope by adding an unexpected piece. Think of it as another opportunity for you to sit, read, tie your shoes, or whatever. Ottomans, accent chairs and benches will serve your sophisticated bedroom well.
Natural light in the bedroom is far greater than any lamp. Not only does it beautifully illuminate the space, but the extra warmth can reduce the need to constantly crank up the heat!
