Although this space is plain, the furniture pieces are traditional and high-quality, which leaves room in the budget for accessories to jazz it up. Ample floor space and a nook in the corner provide opportunities to increase storage space. The tray on the ottoman stores books in plain view as part of the decor. Favorite trinkets and flowers give the ottoman even more personality.
Right now, this room is neutral and basic. But open spaces, pink and orange accents, and classic furniture give it the potential to be a glam, storage-packed room. The pink drawer unit next to the bed and the closet are the room's main storage points now, but with a little reorganization they could store so much more.
Plaid slipcovers on the chair and ottoman add tone and texture to the otherwise neutral furniture. Next to the settee, a charming pedestal side table provides an extra surface to display pretty bottles in the pink and orange color scheme. A shimmery chandelier replaces a floor lamp to achieve a Bohemian glam look. The standard wood-slat blinds are replaced with simple white linen Roman shades.
Moving the dresser from the nook into the closet provides a place for smaller items such as scarves and belts. Decorative and functional white shelves replace the standard wire shelf and hold sweaters, purses, and extra linens. To make room for the shelves, a shorter hanging rod replaces the long rod and is hung high enough to accommodate shoe storage below.
A tiered acrylic caddy organizes essentials for correspondence. Stashing a journal, stationery, scissors, glasses, and stamps makes writing letters quick and convenient.
A new bedside table provides a place for an alarm clock, clever pink charging station, and reading materials.
Replacing bifold closet doors with silk taffeta draperies and painting the back wall add depth and color to the closet. The salmon-tone wall color and fabrics complement the palette. Shelves with decorative edges store sweaters, jeans, and towels.
CLOSET ORGANIZATION TIP: For a clever way to store purses, scarves and hats, cover a bulletin board with fabric and add hooks for easy acess and viewing.
