Ultimate Guide to Bedroom Decorating and Design
Bedroom Decorating Secrets
Get inspiration from these six bedrooms and transform your space into a place of peaceful refuge.
Under the direction of 11-year-old Virginia O'Connor, designer Elizabeth Reynolds and Virginia's mother, Cynthia, created a vibrant retro room inspired by Virginia's love of music from the '60s and '70s (she plays the guitar).
What Makes It Work
• Bold color. Pink becomes empowered in this vibrant shade of fuchsia mixed with orange and purple.
• Simple furnishings with modern touches. The maple bedside table and ivory carpet don't compete with the brights. On the other hand, the re-covered vintage lounge chair suits the '60s vibe perfectly.
• Colorful details. Beaded trim from Bargia bestows the candy-striped lampshades with a chic touch of "jewelry." Fabric-covered nesting boxes enliven a corner.
Bedroom Basics: Swing-arm lamps by the bed offer wonderful reading light. They are generally placed 42 inches from the bottom of the shade to the floor, but experiment to find the right height for you.
