    Default 23 Decorating Tricks for Your Bedroom

    A gallery of simple ideas to make your slumber zone dreamy

    Many of these ideas fit right in with a frugal budget. Slide #1 shows lots and lots of different fabics in an array of colors. Such a frugal idea when every penny counts and you may be limited to using the materials on hand.

    Slide #15 is a saturation of color in many fabric, prints and textures. It's my favorite of the bunch. Still frugal, but allows you the freedom to select a color and purchase yardage that is inexpensive or possibly clearanced to complete this awesome look.

    Slide #2 is an incredible example of how a quilt does not have to give a room a country vibe. Loving the graphic print and the stark black and white of the quilt! Very frugal way to turn your hobby into a masterpiece of a room.

    ladykemma2, I love that turquoise blue. Your dining room must have a very relaxed calm vibe with a blue like that. Blue has always been one of my favorite colors.

    See, now I love blue too and I'm very drawn to it. I love seeing it when I go into other peoples homes because it does create that relaxation effect, but for the life of me I just can't "live" with it. Not in any main areas or in my bedroom anyway. We do have a blue hallway bathroom, and I've incorporated other colors with it. Right now it's blue and cocoa brown. I LOVE it.

    As far as what they show in the pix, if you took #3, and turned those greens into shades of terra-cotta, you would pretty much have my decorating scheme in there. I need things to be looking "sun saturated" in my house which is kinda dark.

    Fun post Polly!
