So often clients show me a room and say, “I know it needs something, but I don’t know what!”

Sound familiar?

It may be easy for you to pick out large pieces of furniture but when it comes to choosing smaller items, deciding on colors, and bringing it all together as a cohesive space, you need a little help. Luckily, you have me! 😉

Here are a few creative ways to fill in empty space in a bedroom (or really any room) and design a space you love.

Accent Walls

A patterned wood accent wall would give a room like this the warm feel it is missing. But who has time to build a new wood wall?

Not this busy mama! So it’s time to get creative and check out the Stinkwood Peel and Stick Wood Panels from Pottery Barn. With a wide variety of finishes to choose from it’s easy to find what you need. Just make sure you use the same color as your floor so it all works together.  

If you are into the diagonal pattern (like me) go for it! This design will offset the many horizontal and vertical lines that may be in your room.

Metal (ish) Embellishments

I love to mix up elements and metal would definitely be a great contrast in a space like this! A large round mirror (metal frame) or round metal artwork would help offset the lines and bring more dimensions to the space.

Looking for something a bit more creative? Statement art is in, especially for teen bedrooms (boys and girls). These are a lot of fun and they add quite a bit of character.

Now metal art can get expensive but you don’t have to break the bank, you can make your own! These letters are faux metal, that’s right… cut with hard stock paper and spray painted using just three colors. If you’re up for the task, you can save a good deal of money by following the DIY instructions at Infarrantly Creative.   

Industrial Look

Last but not least, if you’re feeling the industrial vibe I suggest…checking out these Industrial Edison Retro Sconces found on Amazon. Not your taste? Search away…there are so many styles to choose from, the possibilities are endless!
