If there's no way to empty your room of everything except the bed and nightstands there are a lot of really stylish trunks out there you could use for storage.
Tip #2 for Relaxing Space: Use Soft Neutral Colors on the Walls
I love the soft neutral color we chose for our walls. The color we chose was called Stonington (D14-3) from Olympic. With a neutral color, we are able to change our bedding and decor with ease. I've made the mistake of painting a dark blue color before and I was constantly trying to match my comforters to the walls. With this neutral color I'm able to switch out comforters easily. It's also easy on the eyes. There are some mornings I wake up and the sunlight looks so pretty on the walls.
The wall color also lends itself to any kind of furniture, whether it's light or dark wood or any finish of metal.
Tip #3 for a Relaxing Space: Make it Special to You
When my hubby was off jumping off of buildings in Malaysia a couple years ago, I thought that since he was spending money and having fun, I would spend a little money and get something that I had been wanting. That's when I bought my canopy bed. It was my intention to buy a headboard so that I could prop up my pillows and read in bed. When I saw this canopy bed at a reasonable price, I ended up with it instead.

I think now that I've had my canopy bed for two years, I'd like to add a little oomph to it. Now that it's Spring, I think I'm going to take down the black netting and put up some white, airy curtains. I love the romance of feeling like my hubby and I have our own little area that's kind of closed-in. It would be nice to get some new sheets and maybe a new bedside candle. I love how candles set a mood. Plus, it's definitely time for some soft new sheets. It might be time to check out Parachute to replace our bedding to create an even more comfy space. I love whites and light beiges in the Spring and summer time!
I will post some pictures once my bedroom makeover is done!
