Designer Tip #1 Neutral Bedding with Texture
Create lots of layers in a neutral color palette my mixing up textures. I love the blend of linen with a quilt and the knitted throw I have at the end of our bed. It makes it feel luxurious and interesting even though the colors are all in a natural linen or white. I think a neutral bedding palette feels sophisticated and calming which is the perfect combination for a Primary Bedroom.
Designer Tip #2 Statement Table Lamps
One of the biggest mistakes I see people make in their spaces is having the incorrect scale of table lamps. For me the bigger the better. I think that lighting is such a fun place to make a style statement, there are a lot of affordable statement lamps on the market today. The most important thing to consider is the height, and visual interest when choosing lamps. I love unique table lamps, they really can make or break a space if you ask me. Choosing ones that aren't interesting, or large enough is a real design faux paux.
Designer Tip # 3 Statement Pillows
This is a place where you might need to spend a little more money, but the investment will be totally worth it. I highly recommend having a few really special feeling throw pillows or Coussin Photo Personnalis , around your house. These pillows can elevate other pillows from Homegoods or Target and just really polish off a space. They are timeless and can go with any or all seasons. On our bed, I have a beautiful crewel embroidered pillow that I've had for years. I never tire of it. I feel like it truly brings a designer feel to my other budget-friendly pillows that aren't really anything special. I've rounded up a few of my favorite statement throw pillow options.
If you apply just these 3 simple tips, you are sure to get a designer feel in your bedroom without the designer price tag.
