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.Continue to 2 of 8 below.

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.
