If you want a truly relaxing bedroom, make it look like a sea resort. A sea blue hue will be the statement that your room needs. Another thing you want to keep in mind is having the room feel light and airy. The lighter it feels the less weighted the room will be. Don't wrap your whole room in blue because your brain will go nuts, choose several smaller blue/greenish details, and let the rest of the room lives bright.

Geometry is your friend if you want a modern bedroom. Simple wallpapers in geometric style, especially if you choose colors wisely, can do miracles. You can select an area of your room and add a touch or two of geometric patterns. A great thing here is that "wisely chosen" colors are, in fact, colors total opposite to the rest of your design. If grey flourishes in your bedroom, choose yellow lines and they will shine. Easy. Brilliantly easy.

When you want a quick upgrade to your bedroom, consider bringing in wallpaper. But not just any wallpaper, the one that will make you go "WOW!". Bring a bold wallpaper and allow it to make the room feel twice as welcoming and engaging as ever before. The more intricate your wallpaper is the grander the statement it will make in the room. Think of it as the ultimate showcase and go as wild as you want because, really, you can't go wrong with that type of embellishment.

Some see decorating as a new adventure but others tend to see it as a chore. If you’re right inbetween, a simple and minimal decorating style is the way to go. Declutter the room, keep it simple, and only add minimal accent pieces that brighten the room seamlessly. Consider bringing in a light fixture that will instantly overtake the room. Keeping it minimal doesn’t mean being boring, it simply means you go easy on the decor. It's fun, it's cheap, and it's beautiful.
