You’re giving your bedroom a makeover—what’s the first thing you do? You probably try to figure out how exactly to hang that colossal flat-screen TV directly across from your bed. Stop doing that! It’s time to think outside the (idiot) box. Your space should be a sanctuary—a restful, cozy bedroom where you fall asleep after a long day and wake up fresh as a daisy in order to start a new one, and your bedroom walls deserve more than electronics. Even better, there are so many options of what to do with those walls, so you should apply the same care you used when you chose your bed, nightstands, bedding, lighting, and rug.

9. Add Sculptural Sconces

Designer Ashley Darryl put a modern spin on her friend Jeremy Globerson’s one-bedroom apartment in Manhattan by using clean-lined furnishings and carefully selected accents.

10. Bring In Plants

Plants don’t just have to sit on the windowsill. Try hanging or wall-mounted planters to add a bit of nature to your space and life to your walls.
