Your Design Dilemmas: Bedroom Refresh

This week on style offs we're taking on this small bedroom that has become a catch all room.

This couple said that they haven't put much effort into making this room cozy because of "one million excuses" and we want to help them make it just that - cozy! (While also meeting their need for storage).

Below you'll see how we each styled this space and find the links to all the products we used in each look.

Look 1

The key driver for this bedroom refresh: simplified (and beautiful!) storage! I suggested beautiful pieces throughout this entire space that all double as storage. Underbed storage can be purchased to go with this beautiful minimalist bed from West Elm. The nightstands, bedroom bench, and cabinets, all add symmetry and style to this space, and offer concealed spaces for THINGS! This allows this couple to have a serene space for rest while keeping their space functional and stylish. I am loving the abstract wallpaper accent wall paired with the velvet copper curtains... finish with the indigo nightstands and printed poufs and I am swooning and ready to make this bedroom my own!

Look 2

I suggest that this couple simplifies their storage by getting rid of the mismatched dressers and replacing them with one large dresser.

On the opposite wall, I suggest replacing their night stands with two tall dressers on either side of the bed - that way they have the function of nightstands ( a place to set the tv remote, a glass of water, the books their currently reading, lighting, etc.) but they'll have the added benefit of all that storage space. Cohesive. Symmetrical. Pretty. Functional. BOOM!

If they have the space for it, a storage bench at the end of the bed could also be helpful.

I also think that hanging an extra long curtain rod along the entire length of the wall and all the way up to the ceiling will make this (in their own words) "tiny bedroom" feel more grand.

Lastly, this couple has several cool art pieces that they could gather together in a small gallery on a side wall.
