But you also don't want to be bored--your bedroom should be as interesting as you are. In order to create that impression of tranquility AND maintain a richly interesting decor, focus on subtle details that charm without distracting.

The examples in this post employ a very feminine aesthetic. Feel free to adjust the suggestions according to your own taste. After all, you are the expert when it comes to what you like!

You can only attach so many keychains to your actual keys, right? If you're like me, you've accrued extras that you love but have no use for. They no longer have to go to waste! Hang them around your room; let them dangle from lamps and add extra brightness to your space.

      I use silk flowers in the bedroom - the main advantage is not having to water them. Pretty ideas.
