Stuck in an interior-design rut? Your bedroom, of all spaces, should be your sanctuary – that one place where you go to escape from the world and lap up your “me” time in peace. A critical element of the relaxation equation is the ambiance of your room, which can be impacted by everything from the bedding to the lighting. Read on to discover six no-hassle décor secrets to achieving a more charming, inviting, and design-oriented bedroom.
Add a Statement Piece
Adding a piece of furniture with a strong personality will instantly re-anchor the focal point of your space. Whether you’re going for a bohemian or classic vibe, be sure to pick a piece that’s bold enough to make a statement and neutral enough to blend with a variety of complementary tones and design aesthetics.

Switch Up Your Bedroom Lighting
It’s no secret that lighting determines the ambiance of a space. Consider your current lighting situation. Is it dramatic? Romantic? Harsh? Additionally, consider how you tend to use your bedroom. Do you work in it, or just read and watch television there? Once you’ve decided on the function that your lighting scheme needs to serve, opt for an interesting bedroom lamp (such as this copper-and-marble piece from Dubai-based The Bowery Company) for extra illumination and visual inspiration.

Get Creative with Wallpaper
2016 has been the year of wallpaper, from oversized tropical prints to chinoise. Removable wallpaper is an ideal option for design fans hoping to only temporarily commit to this décor trend. It will allow you to achieve a high-impact look with minimal effort – just the type of easy design hack loved by Savoir Flair.

Mix and Match Your Bedding
If you prefer to play it safe when it comes to your bedding, now is the time to go bold and experiment with textiles and patterns. These unexpected pops of color will instantly breathe new life into your bedroom. We’re particularly fond of this ikat print, which can be mixed and matched with funky pillows for an elegantly outlandish feel.

Add a Small Garden
Succulents are a low-maintenance, design-friendly way to add a little personality to your space. Place the plants on your dresser or dedicate an entire corner of the bedroom to your own little garden for a charming aura.

Rearrange Your Furniture
Hoping to avoid spending money on anything new? Use an online program like Room Styler to map out what your bedroom would look like if you were to rearrange things around. The trick is to begin by moving the larger pieces first – which will have the biggest impact on the flow of the room – followed by the smaller accents and accessories.
