    Liven up Your Bedroom With Colorful Bedding

    When it comes to bringing a sense of style to the bedroom, what we choose to do with the bed makes a big difference. As the central piece of furniture in the room, the bed becomes a natural focal point. The perfect place to start, whether to ground a color palette or begin layering in patterns. Surprisingly, though, we often choose to leave the bed white or neutral, leaving it to the room's other elements – throw blankets, rugs or even wall art – to add color and visual interest to the space. 

    Still, as the prime real estate of the room, it seems a shame to let your other 
    pieces have all the fun. From Anthropologie to West Elm, there are plenty of retailers that have a large and beautiful selection of fun, colorful bedding. So whether you're looking for something that incorporates color in a soft, subtle way or you want your bed to make a big, bold statement, there are countless ways to make your bed the high point of your 
    bedroom décor.

    Don't Be Afraid of the Dark

    There's no moodier, more atmospheric color than black. It's also hard to find a color that's more versatile. If you want to create a deep color story for a room with a big visual impact, then black is the place to start. At the same time, if you want to maintain a neutral color palette, black is just as useful as white for providing a backdrop against which textiles and accessories can pop with bright colors. Best of all, black can be layered – even against itself – to create a space full of interest and personality. All in all, one of the best – and most unexpected – colors to use on your bed.
