Color pops. Liven up a plain bedroom with an accent wall covered in fabulously bold wallpaper. For the truly fearless choose a contrasting color (like the yellow here against the peacock blue wall) for the bedside tables and cushions. If you prefer to limit your pop to one place choose a white or wood headboard and tables and layer on neutral (but deliciously textured) bedding.

Reframe clearing clutter in a positive light. It's all too easy to let the bedroom become a dumping ground for all the random items that don't seem to fit anywhere else. So the first step in clearing clutter is to consider what you do want in the bedroom. Fresh sheets good lighting your current book on the nightstand? Definitely. Piles of paper children's toys and the vacuum cleaner? Probably not. Take action: Center yourself by taking a few deep calming breaths before you begin. Then start sorting through items in your bedroom piece by piece choosing those you want to keep there and removing everything else. Don't worry right now about where the unwanted items will go — separating out this part of the process can make decision-making much easier.

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.

Are you at a loss for what type of night stand to purchase? First consider how much space you have. If you have a small bedroom think about ways that your night stands can serve another function. A table for a nearby armchair or a small chest of drawers for clothes storage are two convenient options. Allow room for table lamps or install wall mounted sconces to read by. I am a firm believer in the power of drawers - they make your life easier less cluttered and more functional. At the very least try to find a table with a shelf to stash your magazines and books.

Freestanding racks. If you'd rather hang art on your bathroom walls than towels a freestanding towel rack might be right for you. With the ability to move the rack wherever you want you can position it closer to the shower or the bathtub depending on your bathing preference.

Dapper gent. As polished and tailored as a bespoke suit this look is based around handsome materials like wool wood and leather and traditional menswear patterns like a windowpane check and plaids. Furniture with clean lines and neatly tucked bedding keep things looking fresh and modern while a monogrammed accent injects a bit of personality.

The hedonist. If people tend to think you're the practical sort prove them wrong by creating a bathroom that lets you go luxe. Indulge all your senses with bubble bath candles fluffy towels and a bath mat to sink your toes into when it's time to dry off and step back into the real world.

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.
