All About

Designer Shane Reilly's key to restfulness is a simple furniture layout with a bed placed alongside a window, not directly across from it. She says this arrangement allows you to enjoy the view, but also turn away from it if lights are too bright.

Another way to keep it simple, according to designer Ammie Kim, is to keep the bedroom spacious, regardless of the room's actual size. Don't fill up the space with unnecessary accessories and don't let the room become overly decorated with fussy window treatments or a plethora of busy patterns.
