#1 Fabulous Color
I tend to like neutrals for a bedroom. The soft neutral colors provide a backdrop or canvas on which you can apply pops of pleasing colors.

#2 A Comfortable Bed
A great bed is crucial. The upholstered headboards are quite popular now. I really like the look and hope it is not just a fleeting trend.

#3 Sumptuous Linens
Beautiful linens are a great way to add some color to an otherwise neutral room. New linens are also an easy, relatively inexpensive way to update a room.
#4 Architectural Elements
Architectural elements such as cove ceilings are a great way to provide a bedroom with good bones. Well designed architectural elements will make anything look better.
#5 Timeless Furniture
I recommend selecting beautiful quality furniture that will stand the test of time. The night table by Alexa Hampton below is one of my favorites.
#6 Excellent Lighting
Great lighting can add interest as well as functionality. Every bedrooms needs a pair of great reading lights. I tend to like lamps better than sconces for the bedroom.

#7 Cozy Seating
Adding a cozy chair with an ottoman, a bench, or a settee which provides a pretty place to read, watch TV, or just put your shoes on is a must have in every bedroom.
#8 Thoughtful Art
It may be one of the last things you think about selecting for a bedroom, but in some ways it is the most important. Artwork can pull the whole look together.
#9 Fabulous Flooring
A beautiful carpet or wood floors can provide a great base for all of your other selections.
#10 Elegant Window Treatments
Last but not least, great window treatments can finish off the look. Column drapes with a trim edge can give a vertical feel to a room with low or average height ceilings.
