10 Stylish Daybed Ideas for a Multi-Functional Look

Multi-functional furniture is a clever way to make the most of a space, especially if you’re limited on square footage. Daybeds, for example, can serve as both a bed and a sofa. Sometimes, they even come with built-in storage to optimize the functionality even more.

Daybeds usually fit a twin-sized mattress (you can find some that fit a double), so they aren’t ideal for every scenario, but if you are looking for space to sleep one person then it could be a great option for you. They’re particularly useful in small spaces (such as a studio apartment or loft area) or in a multi-functional space (such as a home office/guest room).

If you think daybeds limit your design possibilities, think again. They can be as elegant and beautiful as a standard bed. Here are some inspiring examples to give you some ideas.

10 Inspiring Ideas for a Bedroom Accent Wall

A focal point is one of the most important elements in any room. It anchors the space by giving your eye somewhere to rest and helps balance the decor. In a bedroom, the bed should always be the focal point. To help you create a more captivating one, an accent wall behind the bed is one of the easiest ways to accomplish that.

There are several chic ideas for a bedroom accent wall. The simplest is to paint it in a color. For a more dramatic look, opt for a bold color. For something more serene, a soft color will create a beautiful impact while still maintaining a relaxing atmosphere. You can also get more creative with wallpaper, wood elements, and patterns.

Here are 10 stylish examples of bedroom accent wall ideas to give you some inspiration.

10 Bedrooms That Are Beautiful in Blue

One of my favorite colors with which to decorate is blue. In home staging, we use blue as an accent a lot because of how universally loved it is. Most people, regardless of gender, respond positively to the color blue because of its role in nature, calming effect, and ability to suit an array of styles. Blue bedrooms are particularly popular because of how relaxing the color is.

Within the color blue, there are myriad shades and tones to choose from. A dark blue bedroom, for example, will have a rich, luxurious quality, while a bedroom in a lighter blue will feel softer and airier. The textures and patterns you pair it with will also affect how the blue comes across in the room. It makes the color perfect for a shared, gender-neutral space.

Here are 10 examples of blue bedrooms to give you a wide variety of ideas and inspiration.

10 Chic & Dramatic Bedrooms with Black Walls

One of the most timeless ways to make a dramatic statement in a space is to use black. It’s chic, versatile, and never goes out of style. It’s especially dramatic when it’s used on walls and in a bedroom, it can be the perfect balance between drama and elegance.

In a bedroom, black walls invite you in and make the space feel intimate. You can make them recede into the background or turn them into a bold statement. Either way, the results can be captivating. They’re also wonderfully versatile, whether you want a bedroom that is minimalist and masculine, glamorous and feminine, or somewhere in between.

Here are 10 beautiful examples of bedrooms with black walls to give you some inspiration.
