Lovely lavender. Light-to-medium purple shades are thought to ease our stress levels. If you could use a relaxing atmosphere in your bedroom give a lavender or lilac hue a try. I suggest sticking to a shade that is fairly pure or saturated rather than one with an abundance of gray in it. A heavily grayed-out purple or lavender can feel gloomy especially on overcast days.

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.

Night tables are pretty essential pieces of bedroom furniture. But many tend to be a bit utilitarian in terms of style and they can get cluttered with our necessities. To give your bedroom the royal treatment first declutter your nightstand. Remove excess paperwork and posessions leaving only lighting a book and perhaps a small vase of flowers. Next swap out your current nightstand for one with a luxury finish — mirror or shagreen is a great option. A subtler route is to choose a piece with reflective hardware such as crystal or brass. In this bedroom the mirrored table shiny lamp and gilded mirror create a regal look even against a plain white wall.

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.

Dresser or chest. Rather than restricting your night-table furniture to the small or low profile you might go bold with a relatively large piece of furniture like a dresser or chest of drawers. This can provide much-needed extra storage particularly in a narrow bedroom. The key with a larger piece is to create balance. When the bed is placed in the middle of the wall add another large piece of furniture to the other side; a second dresser or a desk typically will work. Be sure both pieces are similar in height and width to create a more symmetrical look. Adding lamps of the same height on either side of the bed can add to the harmonious effect when your night tables don't match. Tip: If you opt for two different lamps and they are not exactly the same height place one or two books beneath the shorter lamp to give it the extra height.

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.

Want to really go all natural? This impressive bathtub was carved entirely out of a boulder. An installation like this is absolutely incredible but obviously costly (and could cause some issues with floor support). If you love the look you can purchase a similar-style acrylic version for a fraction of the price.

Calm the visual noise. Ideally the bedroom would be solely devoted to rest and relaxation but if you live in a smaller space this simply may not be possible. If you must make room for your desk in the bedroom aim for a setup that allows you to hide everything away when you're done working. Tuck work-related items into drawers and cabinets leaving surfaces as clean and clear as possible for a restful feeling. Take action: Remove anything that reminds you of work bills or to-dos from within visual range of your bed. If you can find a place to store these items in a different room do so. If not clear out a drawer or shelf in a closed cabinet to keep them out of view.

Connect with the outdoors. While this might not be feasible in all climates connecting a room with the outdoors is a great way to make the space feel larger and admit more natural light. If your bedroom is on the ground floor (or is on the second story and has an adjacent terrace) adding a set of French doors can instantly increase visual space.
