pillows The more the merrier. For some, that is. Depending on the size of your bed, you will want enough (typically from 1 to 6) so that your bed looks comfortable, but not so many that you can’t actually sleep in the bed.
unique color elements A pop of color can go a long way, especially in a whitewashed setting. Experiment with bold color plays and saturated tones in the form of books or decorative accessories. Your mood will be instantly uplifted.
quality mattress A good mattress. You want something that keeps you cool and gives you great lumbar support. If you’re hesitant to spend a lot on a new mattress, keep this in mind: A high-quality mattress should last 10-15 years. A cheap one? Half that.
greenery Bring in a potted plant (big or small!) to impart the bedroom with an organic color contrast and detail. A single plant can do wonders for a space, especially if it skews towards to the smaller side.
photos and artwork Believe it or not, family photos invoke memories and emotions that can keep you awake at night. Yep, even if your memories are happy. Choose to display those photos in the other rooms of your house. Opt for an oversized work of art or a colorful print to display in the bedroom instead.
great bedding If you want to incorporate different patterns in your bedding, the key is mixing it up to vary the scale, from small to large. Avoid bringing in too many dominating prints, instead opting for one or two statement pieces, complemented by a curated selection of more subtle accents.
