This stylish ​bedroom by Metropole Architects puts a fresh twist on traditional, rustic decorating with a stunning dark blue wall. It is the perfect backdrop for the brown and blue colors used throughout the room. Another good looking trick worth stealing is the wood feature wall, which is actually wallpaper. ​

Your small bedroom may be a blessing for a better night’s sleep. The American Sleep Association recommends keeping stimulating activities out of the bedroom.

In newer construction, drywall is normally hollow and supported by vertical 2x 4 wood beams (studs) that are 16” apart. If your bed is set up on a non-exterior wall, use a stud finder to mark where your bed’s wood wall beams are and cut out an alcove. Your new alcove may not be incredibly deep, but it may be all you need for small necessities like an alarm clock or some personal items.
