Turn Up the Tuft
Add the ultimate touch of sophistication with a timeless, tufted DIY headboard. Choose a soft, neutral hue like the one seen here for a soothing look or up the wow-factor with a bold color or printed upholstery.

Too many books? No such thing! Use the colorful overflow from crowded bookshelves to create a stack by your bedroom reading chair. Not only does will this add a dash of personality and texture to your space, but your stack will serve as the perfect resting spot for coffee. (Or, let's be honest, wine!) Tip: For extra stability, stack books on a floating book tower like this one.

Design + Function
Lean a rustic wood blanket ladder against the wall for an ultra-stylish display and storage for blankets. You'll love how organized your space looks once your throws are tucked neatly on the ladder instead of bunched haphazardly on the floor. (Pro tip: use your DIY ladder with holiday throws for an extra-festive dose of color and cheer in your boudoir!)

Wow With Wood
Natural beauty never goes out of style, right? No matter your design preferences, anyone can reap the stylish benefits that come from adding a wood focal wall behind the bed. Wood set in a chevron pattern, seen here, creates an ultra-inviting feature in the space. And how effortlessly cool does it look paired with a sleek, leather headboard?
How About a Night Cap?
Serve up savvy style. In fact, make it a double! Roll that neglected, somewhat dusty bar cart from the dark corner it lives in and bring it into your bedroom. Swap out the untouched brandy and overpriced cocktail napkins with a bedside lamp, your current reads and your glasses case and, voila! A chic, simple alternative to the basic nightstand, with plenty of space for life's necessities.
Paint Your Pillows
Get that gorgeous, graphic look for less by picking up a brush and painting your pillows. You'll wind up with one-of-a-kind designs that look way more expensive than they actually are. That's the goal, right? The best part: the process is a lot simpler than you think.
Add an Escape
A cozy window seat provides the perfect spot for reading, lounging or just enjoying the quiet moments of your day. Add a DIY bench beneath your bedroom window and create instant, cozy-comfy energy that feels like home. Plus, who doesn't love any excuse to add more pillows to a space?
Stripe Your Ceiling
Opting for a neutral color palette doesn't mean your design is destined to be boring. We were floored by the way this space, with its minimal wall decor and understated textiles, exudes high style. The wow-factor? High-impact, high-style stripes painted on the ceiling. It draws your eye up and demands your attention, all the while managing to showcase that g-g-gorgeous bohemian chandelier.
Blog-Worthy Bedroom Storage
Make like your favorite lifestyle blogger and DIY an Instagram-worthy copper clothing rack to store your sweaters, suits and snazzy, on-trend cabbie hat in the open for all to see... and admire, of course.
Curate a Gallery Wall
The high contrast of black and white and the right combination of cozy textures gives this master bedroom an appealing sense of style and comfort, don't you think? Recreate this posh look in your bedroom with black and white framing and a variety of personal prints and pictures to create a cohesive gallery wall. Using simple, identical framing allows you to bring "mismatched" pieces together in a space without sacrificing style.
