Set the Tone
Paint colors set the tone. Pillows can add some variety as well as some excitement. And the nice part about pillows is you can change them seasonally and inexpensively for a whole new look. A color wheel can help pick the right color pillow for an analogous color scheme — try colors next to each other on the color wheel, such as blue and green. This is a good strategy for a bedroom, where you want to rest and recover.
Another strategy for a calm bedroom is to to keep your space clutter free. Try for simple decor ideas and simple accessories. Think about storage items so you have places to put away items so they do not stack up on the dresser our sit in piles on the floor.
