Decorating is not simply a matter of color, you will need to consider the type of floor coverings, window treatments and furniture
Storage is a major issue in a bedroom also.

And for the grand finale that will turn an ordinary bedroom into a haven, fresh flowers displayed in a vase or jug will add sweet ambience, photographs and small collections to remind you of special times, and off course your favourite music and soothing scents to complete the bedroom make over.
