If you are like me, then you will probably play it real safe when it comes to bedroom decor. I find it hard to strike a balance between too much and too little. This is also the case with colours which can be too bright or too boring.
I do believe less is more but when is less too little…

There is of course the question of the budget. Good quality and comfortable bedding costs good money but decor pieces / furniture pieces do not have to cost an arm.
I have learnt to always start with a plan – How much money do I have available? How many cushions and pillows is enough? What sizes do I get? What other items of decor should I get to compliment the bedding?
Where the spending of money is required, do your research and always start with a plan / budget.

As I mentioned before, when it comes to bedding I am not drawn to the bold colours, but from my experience, the lighter colours are harder to keep clean. On the other hand, dark coloured bedding can make a room look darker.
This then means when working on new decor, ways of bringing light into a room is a must. This can be through the use of lamps or white furniture pieces which go well with the chosen colours.

Accessories definitely add that je ne sais quoi which brings together a bedroom decor look quite well. The minimalistic look definitely appeals to me and also encourages me to start my plan with what I already have.
A minimal look does not call for several cushions and plenty layers of covers, but simple bedding and 3 or 4 pieces in the room that go very well together. After all the point of the room is to sleep.

Ultimately what matters, as with anything in life, is that the bedroom decor serves it’s purpose and works well for you.
