Tip 1: Start with a neutral base.
Ivory, gray, brown and navy are subtle and non-gender-specific. Charcoal gray walls and drapery in the same color grounds the space and centers your eyes on the focal point: a contemporary, leather-tufted upholstered bed that both parties can agree on.
Tip 3: Play with mirrors.
This eye-popping tip has more to do with furnishings than getting frisky. Given that all else is neutral, a couple of mirrored nightstands turn up the glam factor. Mirrors reflect light and give the space the added sparkle it needs while maintaining a masculine-feminine balance.
Tip 4: Combine furniture styles.
This metal-framed bed is tough as nails, but the bamboo-like motif softens the edge. The pair of nightstands are box-shaped like the bed, but feature a curved pattern on the doors. The combination of straight lines and curvy shapes represents both genders and also makes the furniture selection more interesting.
Tip 6: Surround yourselves with sweet memories.
Your bedroom is a haven for rest and a place for intimate moments. Choose a wall to feature your best photographs and places you've experienced together. The display is also a symbol of your connectedness and something your loved one can reflect on even while you are away.
Tip 7: Overload your tactile senses with softness.
In addition to making the room beautiful, be sure to give equal attention to comfort. No one can argue with plush bedding for an evening of canoodling and a soft rug to greet your feet at sunrise.
Tip 8: Create a room fit for royalty.
You and your partner are uniquely different people so it's okay if it takes a while to find your decorating groove. Focus on your commonalities and use them to build a foundation. Edit and try out new pieces until you come up with a winning formula.
I would assume the couple who sleeps here has discerning taste and an affinity for exquisite collectibles. What would someone assume about your space?
