4 Easy Bedroom Makeovers That Won’t Blow Your Budget
It’s no secret that your sleep space is your sanctuary, and giving your bedroom a style reboot can do wonders for your quest for beauty rest. Many elements can be updated on a dime to give your boudoir a totally new look or, at the very least, a more polished vibe. Make a significant impact on the overall feel of the room by choosing one major piece to swap out—new bedding, a nightstand, a headboard—and adding in some carefully curated, cost-conscious filler items like new vases, pillows, art or a mirror. Below, we’ve put together inspiring looks to help you achieve a quick bedroom refresh without going broke in the process.
Simple is often best when it comes to your bedroom, but it doesn't have to be boring. Choosing three colors—one bold, one light and a white or metallic to act as a neutral—can keep the overall tone tranquil. Within the same palette, add something fun like a scattered-dot duvet or a print with a wink, and you've got your serene dream room with a pop of personality.

There's arguably nothing more relaxing than the beach, so why not re-create that vibe in your favorite space? Imbue your room with lots of white, hints of ocean blues, some pearlescent touches and a little texture to mimic the waves. You'll be well on your way to your very own tranquil lagoon.

If you're more of a desert dweller, replicate the serenity of those hot, hazy days in your bedroom. Try creams mixed with sunset tones, crocheted elements and hints of terra-cotta to make your desert dreams a room reality.
It's hard not to smile when you wake up surrounded by beautiful flowers, but a floral motif can be tricky to pull off—it's important to keep it sophisticated and not too girly. Try picking one print in shades you love, then mix in some unexpected floral patterns, like a white-on-white textured duvet and some black and white photography. A clean balance will make your space feel modern without jumping too far into secret-garden territory.
