There is very little comparison to that feeling of walking into an airy, open, and soothing space you get to call your bedroom. Spa-like and ethereal, these rooms command relaxation and comfort — as all well-designed bedrooms should. Designing a compelling space with such a limited color palette can be challenging, but our friends here at RiversetRoses has narrowed down a few things one should keep in mind.

Who can resist a vibrant plant? A nice reminder that life is easy, if can just let it be.
