What are the common features of an ugly bedroom? Emma Blomfield, interior stylist at TheHome.com.au, explains. Mess: Clothes on the floor and furniture. Tip: Fold clothes and pack them neatly in wardrobes so you aren’t tripping over them. Bed Linen: If you haven’t updated your bed linen since the Ninja Turtles ruled in the ‘90s, you need to reassess your interior decorating skills. Tip: You can’t go wrong with crisp white bed linen or a striped doona cover. Mismatched curtains/doona: If your curtains are a flowery paisley print, don’t choose the same or similar pattern for the doona. Tip: Restrict pattern to one part of the bedroom, like the bed spread. That way you won’t feel like passing out each time you enter the room. Saggy/old pillows: Pillow inserts should be updated every few years. Your neck and back will thank you and your bed will look softer and plusher for a few extra dollars. Outdated bed frames: The easiest way to date a bedroom is to check the style of bed head. Tip: Update with an ensemble base and a buttoned bed head. Furniture: Too many furniture is well one too many ... If the bedroom furniture is bulky, or has too much, the room will not only look, but will be cluttered. Also, it is important to really pay attention to how it is laid out.
