7 mini bedroom makeovers

1 Off the wall

If you want your bed to make a bold statement, articulate it by applying an eye-catching wallcovering behind it. Here, the large-scale swirly gold pattern draws attention to the soft grey button-tufted headboard.

2 Cut a rug

Layer a rug over carpeting to create a luxurious stepping surface - perfect for padding (or pirouetting) about in your PJs. It's also a great opportunity to add pattern at ground level.

3 Hocus-pocus

It's amazing how a new set of drapes can enliven a boudoir. And when said window treatments match the toss cushions on the bed (grosgrain trim included)? Pure magic.

4 Lay it on thick

There's no such thing as too much when it comes to bedding, so top that basic sheet set with additional pillows, toss cushions and throws in a variety of patterns, textures and hues.

5 Head over heels

Infuse a dull, dated upholstered headboard with current sophistication by simply stapling a length of trendy fabric around it. Choose a striking textile, like this life-sized flourishing planter motif that's set off by an outrageously bright chartreuse backdrop.

6 Treasure chest

If space allows, forgo the typical nightstand for a chest of drawers, which offers more storage and display space. The jewel-like ornate gold trim and knob details here were actually custom-fitted onto a big-box buy.

7 Skirting the issue

For a thoughtful finishing touch, add a bedskirt. This one reminds us of a featherlight tutu - not the saccharine kiddie kind, but one a grown lady would be proud to twirl in.
