These modern kitchens, from SCIC, updated for modern needs, put this on full display with plenty of counter space, welcoming seating areas, and beautiful spaces that make you yearn to start a meal from scratch.
If you have the space, float a dresser, cabinet or desk in the room with enough space to open the drawers on one side and with the back of the furniture piece as your headboard. The best part is that you can sit lamps or other objects on the dresser to shine over you when reading in bed. If you're dresser back is unfinished, paint it or line it with wallpaper.
Don't have enough room for books? Store them neatly near your bed and crate a very nowledgeable headboard. Or open up the books and post them on the wall, for easy access to any famous quote.

It’s easy to change the look of a bedroom on any budget, whether that means bringing in new furniture pieces, adding a few splashes of color or altering the lighting to be more soothing. There are many different styles and aesthetics that you can emulate in order to produce a space that works for you. If you're wondering where to start, here are some bedroom decorating ideas to help you turn your bedroom into one of your favorite rooms in the house.
Decide on your room style first: modern, minimalist, retro, mid-century or beach. Neutral beige shades will become a perfect soothing backdrop for almost any kind of room. If you are looking for a moody ambience, opt for rich brown shades or dark brown. Brown shades are more often used for walls, floors and furniture, while blue can be added as accents. Coastal-inspired rooms look amazing with brown and blue, opt for rich blue shades and calm brown ones, beige or other neutrals.
An LED light is a closet necessity for many reasons. The quality of light this battery-powered fixture emits is excellent, replicating bright daylight. Your space will look bigger, clothing colors will read true and you'll be able to more easily see what's in your closet.
Comparing mattresses can feel like comparing apples to oranges, since everyone has a finely tuned preference for what sends them off to snoozeville. Some want to sleep like Aslan on the stone table in Narnia; others prefer to feel like they're sinking in a vat of quicksand.
A contemporary atmosphere is hidden in the details. For an exhilarating effect,choose an open canopy bed to go with your large windows. This way the light can flow freely and flood every corner of the room without interruption, just like the example above, designed by Cleare Interiors.
Perhaps more than any other room in the house, the bathroom is a private retreat. It is a place where we perform important daily rituals and where we take the time to truly indulge ourselves with the wonderful luxury of solitude. The bathrooms collected here use their own design elements but have the luxury factor in common. The bathroom is not a place to skimp and none of these designs do.
Such a bright and light-filled room often looks a bit cold, so the designers opted for pastel furniture and décor. The furniture is modern, simple, partly from IKEA, which is a symbol of timeless Nordic décor. Pastel pillows, banners, chairs, wall and fireplace décor spruced up a cold space and turned it into an inviting one.
