Cool blues. A navy blue wall color adds a bit of drama to the room while helping to frame the fetching views. A softer blue hue on the ceiling mimics the sky giving the room an even more expansive vibe than it already has. A cool white color for the trim adds a clean crisp linear element. This is a decidedly cool color palette so it's best for bedrooms in hot and sunny locations.

Orange above. If you prefer to wake up with a happy jolt try a bold orange-gold color on the ceiling. An orange ceiling will intensify the blue of the skies outside as blue and orange are complementary colors. With such a strong color on the ceiling I'd go with light and warm neutrals for the walls and trim.

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.

Take your time. Great design takes a while and usually requires refining before you come up with the perfect plan for your lifestyle. Don't rush through the design — it's worth taking a little extra time up front to make sure you have a more efficient and functional plan in the end. The truth is great design doesn't necessarily mean a space that's overly complex and expensive to build. A space that functions better costs less to build is more efficient to run and is easier to maintain can be an outstanding example of great design.

Shower doors. Keep your towel mount integral to the shower enclosure itself. If you're lucky all the heat and steam against the glass may warm your towel in the process. Here a pivoting door swings on a hinge so the bather can access a towel without having to leave the steamy environs and without dripping any water outside the shower room. Naturally this type of hinged door works best when you have room to spare since its radius projects into the stall.

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.

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.
