Getting Creative with Your Bedroom Décor

When you’re shopping for bedroom decor, what do you look for? Are you a bed-in-a-bag person or do you prefer to shop individual pieces that match your own style? I have always been a bed-in-a-bag type person because it’s more convenient and can be less costly than coming up with a design myself. The set usually comes with everything – comforter, shams, decorative pillows, a bedskirt, and sheets. This is a great option if you are certainly looking for convenience. Recently, I’ve decided to make my space more “me” by styling the bed myself. It allows me to get exactly what I’m looking for and also express some creativity. If you would like to try creating your own layout, here are some tips that helped me!

Determine a Theme

When browsing decorations for my room, I decided to come up with a theme so that I wouldn't just add every single item that I loved to my online shopping cart. (online shopping carts get out of control sometimes, I know I’m not alone haha) It can be a color scheme that you stick with, or an actual theme such as modern, glam, or traditional. Shopping with an idea/goal in mind helps you stay on track and within budget. The theme I decided on was bohemian. The bohemian look uses warm and bold colors, patterns, and gives a free-spirit type of vibe. Choosing a theme also helped me easily find inspiration since I knew what decor look I wanted to mimic.

What Do You Need

As I mentioned, a bed-in-a-bag comes with some essential items needed to decorate your bed but since you're assembling your own pieces, you’ll have more control over what kind of pillows you get, what color bedskirt you purchase, the correct sham sizes, etc. You’ll also need to think about what set-up you like which will help you determine exactly what you need. With that said, here are some items you should consider purchasing:

  1. Sheet set – fitted and top sheet thread count of 300 or higher for best quality.
    1. I recommend getting your sheets last. You want to make sure your comforter and other decor match up first. This is my opinion. I feel that it’s easier to find sheets that match.
  2. Comforter, quilt, or duvet (or all three. You may want to switch up based on the weather outside.)
  3. Throw blanket
  4. Mattress Pad/Memory Foam Mattress Topper
  5. Pillow Cases (silk or satin to protect skin and your hair)
  6. Bed Skirt*
  7. Accent Pillows
    1. Depending on your setup you’ll need multiple. For full/queen size beds, you’ll need at minimum two euro pillows, two standard, and an accent. It varies based on bed size and preference but adding a layer of pillows certain adds to comfort.

Now that you have all of your items that fit your color scheme and theme, it’s time to put everything together. As mentioned above, you’ll need to decide how to want to set up and layer your bed. With the cooler weather approaching, layering up plush throws, pillows and blazers will make your bedroom cozy. Once that’s determined, you’ll have to complete the vibe in the room to bring the theme you chose to life. This includes the little things that make a great impact. Here’s a list of bedroom essentials that will add a cozy and comfortable touch to your space:

  • Wall decor
  • Bedside rug
  • Blackout curtains
  • Candles
  • Room spray
  • Scent Plug ins
  • Pillow sprays
  • Full Length Mirror
  • Plants
