Joan Kohn's It's Your Bed and Bath : Hundreds of Beautiful Design Ideas
Kohn, who hosts, writes and produces HGTV's Kitchen Design and Bed and Bath Design, presents intelligent, organic design ideas for our most intimate rooms. She urges would-be room renovators to let their own personality shine through, whether choosing traditional or contemporary designs or some combination thereof. Inspiration, she suggests, can be found anywhere: in architecture, magazine photos, television and even music. According to Kohn, a favorite piece of fabric, a souvenir from a favorite vacation or the color of your eyes could be the starting point of a great design idea. The design of any room, she says, should consider its context within the home, the property, the neighborhood and the region. She provides tricks for maximizing function while maintaining beauty, instructions on how to choose and work with a design team, and tips for budgeting resources and surviving the construction process. Lists and questionnaires help readers organize their ideas and assess design needs. However, the book will best serve amateur designers while they're in the conceptualization/visualization stage of their renovation. There are no hands-on projects here, as Kohn seems to assume a hired team will do the actual manual labor. Of course, the book's real attraction is its 240 envy-inspiring photos of bedrooms and bathrooms by top designers, with summaries of how use of line, texture, color and light enhanced each room's design.

Shabby Chic - add a touch of old-fashioned romance to the Shabby Chic style bedroom - invent new uses for old furniture, keep it simple with an eclectic mix of furnishings. White furniture is great for a clean, contemporary look, and if the surface is distressed it adds a lived-in feel. For casual chic, wicker baskets give the feel of easy living and are handy for storage. Add glamour with sparkly beading and reflective glassware. Go girly with a glass dish full of diamante jewellery and silk flowers, and accent with beaded lampshades and display pretty perfume bottles by a bed piled with vintage quilts of faded florals.

Terms like faded, evolved, distressed and eclectic combine to creat this unique style.

In place of lace and patchwork, a contemporary quilt in a crisp traditional yellow and blue, sheer fabric hung over the bed, will give the room a calming feel. And the yellow contrast adds a warmth.

Whether it's your own private retreat; the master suite; teen hideout, a comfy living area, baby nursery, or guest room - make it unique - express your individual taste and decorate the bedroom to match your personal style.
The space should be a clear and vivid reflection of you - incorporating your
treasures, your passions, and the many aspects of your personality.

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.
