Refined feminine. Crisp black and white stripes paired with soft misty blue create a chic elegant look that is easy to love. Keep accessories pared down and simple with favorite bags and jewelry on display and a few simply framed art prints on the wall. Bring in delicious texture with a cuddly mohair throw and smooth sateen sheets.

Warm modern. Keep a clean minimalist look from being too cold with a stroke of fiery red or orange. Here a wide striped bedcover echoes the color in an oversize painting. If a painting of this magnitude is beyond your current budget consider stretching a length of bold fabric on stretchers meant for canvas (find them in art stores). Choose a simple platform-style bed and slim task lamps then fill out the room with a healthy potted plant and a vase of flowers.

Embrace your whimsical side and opt for a chair as your night table. This look works particularly well when just one side of a bed has room for a nightstand — though it also looks adorable when you double up with chairs on both sides of the bed. Tip: For added interest select a chair that has a different texture from the other textiles in the room. For instance you might choose velvet against silk. It's also fun to choose a color that is different from but coordinates with the other colors in the room as in this bedroom. Add a hard tray or book on top of the seat of your chair to create a sturdy surface for your bedside knickknacks.

Because the bedroom is one of the simplest rooms in the house it's often overlooked. One of the first steps to a great bedroom design is having an efficient and well-designed floor plan that gives you everything you want — no matter how much space you start with.

Tropical hue. Deep watery blue hues are among my favorites for a bedroom. The slight green undertones give a bit of warmth that a true blue lacks. It's also a nice choice if you happen to associate the color with a vacation spent someplace warm lush and tropical. For the ceiling I went with a crisp and light greenish-gray and the trim color is a slightly cool off-white.

The rebel. We're all forced to toe the line to some degree — there are laws to follow jobs to show up for and cultural norms to abide by after all. But if a part of you wants to walk your own path a symbol in your bathroom can serve as a reminder to stand up for what you believe in and that you can dance to your own tune … at least to a degree.

Squeeze in a micro shelf. Think there isn't even room for a shelf? Think again. When a bed has to be squeezed into an alcove it can seem as if there isn't any room for bedside storage but this teeny-weeny shelf attached to the side of a closet is a clever solution. The curved edge is a safer option if space is tight and the shelf is close to the bed out of necessity. Admittedly displaying a vase of flowers here may not be terribly practical if this room is used every day but this dinky shelf would be the perfect size for a phone or alarm clock.

Boho glam. Pick a classic decorator favorite (like the upholstered bed with nailhead trim shown here) to build the room around then mix and match accessories at whim. Bamboo blinds and colorful printed bedding paired with a glass-top table and a fun framed print add up to a laid-back yet glamorous look.

Shower enclosure. Barring a door mount a tiled half wall may be the next best thing. You'll barely have to open the door to access your towel. In this particular shower the shower head and drain are far enough from the exit that you won't have to drench your floors to reach for that towel.

A monochrome bathroom can make a dramatic statement that's modern glamorous and edgy or it can create a serene and soothing space. Opt for just one little feature that breaks slightly from the theme or cover everything with your chosen color — if you dare. It certainly won't be boring. Here's how to get it right.
