    Everything in this slideshow

    • Color It Inviting

      Watch your bedroom bloom with Citrus Blossoms bedding. The bright green, orange, and coral hues bring spring flair to any bedroom.

      -- Pair a patterned comforter with solid-color sheets. Pull colors from the pattern to create a coordinating set.

      -- Use light colors to brighten your bedroom. A white dust ruffle with green trim adds a fresh, airy look to the bedroom.

      -- To really make the bedding pop, pair it with white furniture. The white background will make the colors appear more vibrant.

    • Get a Garden View

      Bring on the charm in a cottage-look bedroom with a classic floral-patterned comforter. This garden design looks at home with the whitewashed walls and accessories.

      -- Maximize your dollar by choosing a reversible comforter, which gives you two looks for the price of one.
      -- Match the dust ruffle to a color in the comforter. This box-pleated skirt matches the bedding's pretty green banding.
      -- In a casual room, skip traditional framed artwork and instead choose pretty prints and tack them in a loose grouping on the wall.

    • Get Mad for Plaid

      If "cute" and "pretty" aren't in your vocabulary, opt instead for bedding that's cool and sophisticated. This plaid ensemble is tailored enough to be masculine yet shiny and subtle enough to satisfy more feminine tastes.

      -- Save money and avoid creative struggles by purchasing a bed ensemble that comes prepackaged with coordinating sheets, shams, and decorative pillows.
      -- Placing a bed at an angle adds interest in the room and can actually make the room feel larger.
      -- A dark-stained sleigh bed looks lovely draped in traditional colors and patterns.

    • Create a Corner Office

      In a home without a dedicated office, it can be difficult to carve out a workspace. Turn a portion of your bedroom into an office with a pretty desk and bookshelf that match the decor.

      -- Make a working bedroom as pretty as it is practical by choosing office furniture that matches the room's woodwork.
      -- Use an area rug to differentiate the office space from the rest of the bedroom.
      -- Line the shelves and desk with colorful accessories that coordinate with the rest of the room's decor.

    • Update Grandma's Favorites

      Vintage design graces the pages of many design magazines. Bring the look home with this elegant, scalloped-edge cotton quilt from the Better Homes & Gardens collection, available at Wal-mart.

      -- A lightweight quilt is perfect for all seasons. Let it serve as the primary bedding in warmer months; in cold months, fold it over a thicker comforter for a decorative touch.
      -- Drive home the vintage chic look by using a wicker coffee table in place of a traditional nightstand.
      -- Elevate the look from cottage to classic by painting the walls in two shades of warm and elegant brown.

    • Simplify Your Style

      Freshen up your space with a light and airy color scheme of white and soft blue. Keeping the walls, floors, and furnishings neutral allows the beautiful bedding to be the room's star.

      -- A subtle pattern and scallop border give this reversible quilt a vintage look that's elegant and understated.
      -- Using a small dresser as a nightstand maximizes storage, which is especially important when there's only room for one bedside table.
      -- Create a beautiful display atop a nightstand with a grouping of vessels in a variety of sizes and finishes.

    • Pretty Up Your Place

      Sophisticated, traditional design looks rich, but it can be yours on a budget using the Brooke bedding set from the Better Homes & Gardens collection, available at Wal-mart. Its shiny finish, soft pastels, and subtle damask design adds instant elegance to any bedroom.

      -- Simplify design selections by choosing a 12-piece bedding set that includes the comforter, sheets, shams, skirt, and decorative pillows.
      -- For a collected-over-the-years look, use different tables on each side of the bed.
      -- Add a comfy spot for reading near the window with a classic tufted armchair.

    • Bring Back to Black-and-White

      Basic shades of black and white are anything but boring when they're on a boldly patterned bed set. Add instant drama to the bedroom with this smart ensemble, which includes a reversible comforter, intricate embroidery details on the pillows, and a tailored bed skirt with a contrasting border.

      -- A tiered shelf provides more storage and display space than a typical nightstand.
      -- For a double-duty bedside table, opt for a petite writing desk with a slim chair. Top it with a lamp for paying bills at the desk or reading in the nearby bed.
      -- If your room doesn't have a large expanse of empty wall space, place the bed at an angle in the corner instead.
