Why is master bedroom decorating so important? The master bedroom is the first thing we see in the morning, and the last thing we see when we close our eyes. It is our refuge; a place to finally take a deep breath and relax.
Unfortunately, so many master bedrooms are cluttered and disorganized! Bed linens are mismatched and worn, dressers are cluttered, and things are stacked in spots all over the floor.
SO, if there is one room you really need to make your priority, it is this room!!! You deserve to relax and unwind, and have a little time to yourself. So, let’s go over a few tips and bedroom makeover ideas to help you create your own refuge. After all, you spend 8-10 hours a day in this room! Move "master bedroom decorating" up on your priority list!
1. The number one tip I have is DE-CLUTTER AND ORGANIZE. Nothing should be on your floors except furniture. Use storage boxes if you must keep things under your bed.
2. Your bed is the focal point of the room. Dress it up! Allow yourself the luxury of good sheets. Don’t feel you have to commit to a “bed set”; mix and match. Just stay in the same color tones. It takes a little work and time, but shop around.
3. When purchasing bedroom furniture, you don’t have to create a matching set. Buy interesting individual pieces. Again stay within the basics: bed, nightstands, dresser, chest, and if room allows, a comfortable reading chair.
4. Whether accessorizing your chest or dresser, stick with the basic “three” rule. Use only three items to decorate with, but keep them in scale with the furniture.
5. Draperies are a must in a bedroom. Whether you do long panels, or just a window topper, select a fabric that goes well with your bedding.
6. Keep wall art simple and proportioned well. If you have a larger wall, don’t be afraid to purchase one large piece of artwork.
7. When choosing paint colors; whites, neutrals, or soft pale
hues tend to create a more restful ambiance. Especially, if you are
trying to incorporate
romantic bedroom decorating ideas.
8. If you decide you cannot live without a TV in your bedroom, it is best to choose cabinetry that conceals it. That way you maintain a restful look in the room.
This is a headboard made from an old door that I paid $20.00 for at the Flea Market! I love making something new from something old.
My husband framed out the door, and then I painted and antiqued the whole headboard. I get many compliments on this unique headboard, and I love knowing how much it cost! This headboard definitely fits the Country French Bedroom Decorating style!
Have a pillow monogrammed for your bed! Gorgeous! Remember, it is the little things that make your master bedroom decorating special and unique.

When it comes to window treatment ideas for your bedroom, there is no one rule. It really comes down to your preference.
If you like cottage style decorating, or don't really want a heavy drapery in your bedroom, sheers are a great choice. They are relatively cheap curtains, that don't look cheap at all.
They give an airy feel to the room, and add their own beauty when the sun shines through.
Another option is sew your own swag window treatment. This tutorial has step by step instructions. Swag treatments are an excellent choice if you are only wanting to cover a little of your window.
Finding beautiful curtains isn't always easy or affordable. I love HalfPricedDrapes.com because their draperies and hardware are affordable and beautiful. If you are hanging long drapes, choose hardware that accents the drapery panels, and gives a more elegant look to the overall design of your windows.
Always remember that order and simplicity is key in master bedroom decorating. This dresser is accessorized very simple, but is still elegant.
