Placing Your Bed
The conventional wisdom of decorating your bedroom was to go to a furniture store, select a bedroom set that included everything from a matching headboard and end tables to dressers and vanities, and wedge everything into the room. Today's decorating is all about being more conscious about furniture and accessories. We put more time and thought into selecting pieces for their beauty, design, function, and provenance. Bedrooms are more eclectic and things don't have to be so matchy-matchy like in a hotel. But bedroom decorating still boils down to placing the bed - the largest and most important piece of furniture in the room - somewhere that makes sense. In this video, we look at an unfinished bedroom from the 2010 Hampton Designer Showhouse (a room now decorated as a sitting room by Design2Share's in-house designer, Irwin Weiner ASID) and look at our options for bed placement.
