As you can see in the above images of styled beds and bedrooms there are many factors to consider including styles, colours and sizes of beds, furniture and soft furnishings that a stylist will use to ensure your space looks amazing for open homes, inspections and your real estate photography.



1. Select the right furniture pieces and accessories for your room. (Whilst also coming up with the theme and colour palette)


The first step to making your bedroom look like it was styled by a pro is selecting the right pieces for the room. You want to avoid placing large bulky furniture in a bedroom and want to ensure placing pieces that will show off the space to its full potential and the features it may have.


Some bedrooms may have features such as an Ensuite, balcony and so fourth. Creating and implementing a style that flows through to these extra areas will enhance your rooms appearance.


The first step is always the hardest and trickiest part of styling as you will be coming up with a theme, colour palette, furniture selection and look of the room. One wrong move could change the look of the entire room. You will find most stylists come up with a mood board and set up pieces before they are installed to ensure everything flows and the style works.


2. Select the right artwork to compliment the room.


Selecting the right artwork is a critical component to ensuring your room looks the part when selecting a style for your bedroom. Artwork and wall art come in all types of sizes, colours and types. The shape of the room may determine where the artwork is placed and the size of the room.


3. Select cushions, soft furnishings and linen. (Cushions, Cushions & More Cushions :)


We also recommend starting with a neutral colour palette on the base of your bed. White linen is always fantastic when starting your style. Your cushions should compliment the artwork and will be one of the main focal points of the bedroom. There are different types, sizes and textures of cushions to choose when styling a bed. Adding textured cushions and layering could really make your bedroom pop and will set the theme of the room.


4. Select lamps for your bedside table


Lamps are another big focal point of the room. Adding light and ambience to the room will really set the mood and style of the style you have created. There are sooo many lamps to choose from. Select lamps that flow with the rest of the style.


5. Accessorise the room.


Now for the fun part! You should select accessories that flow and compliment the rest of the pieces you have chosen for the room. Bedside accessories could include a succulent plant, ornaments, books and so fourth. Depending on the style of the room and the furniture placements, accessories will vary.
