Boys! Fellas! MEN!!! Listen, as a single lady, I have spent more than enough time in a bachelors bedroom… and that’s for business AND for pleasure!

Bathrooms can get overlooked during the interior design process. But, think about how much time you and your guests spend in them! Sometimes the littlest touch can help your bathroom go from dull to designer.
Trade typical sliding shower doors for the more industrial look of salvaged windows.
Upcycle an old bicycle into a bathroom sink.
Paint an entire wall with chalkboard paint.

Don’t be afraid to hang tons of art.
Instead of tile or linoleum, paint floors with a high gloss.

Instead of shower curtains for your bathtub, try a canopy.

Paint the radiator a crazy color.
An exposed brick wall has become a popular feature in interior design. Leaving a wall bare with the bricks visible can give an apartment, home or loft an industrial and unconventional touch and adds character to the interior. Here are 10 of the most beautiful interiors with exposed walls that I found on Pinterest!
Can the colors you choose for your home affect your life? Absolutely! Believe it or not, color has a massive impact on how you feel, from your productivity and energy levels to your creativity and overall happiness.
RED: The Color of Success and Productivity
Red is the perfect color choice for a home office.
YELLOW: The Color of Happiness
Yellow promotes conversation in a communal living area.
ORANGE: The Color of Energy and Excitement
Orange has been known to increase energy levels and excitement. I suggest using it in a home gym.
BLUE: The Color of a Rested, Beautiful You
The key to a beautiful you is in a restful night’s sleep surrounded by blue. Use blue in your bedroom and bathroom.
GREEN: The Color That’s Sexier Than You Think
If you’re in the mood for lovin’, paint your bedroom green.
PURPLE: The Color of Creativity
The possibilities for creativity are endless when you paint your kitchen, a playroom or an art studio purple.
Created by Dutch designer Eduard Bohtlingk in 1985, the Markies camper masquerades as an unassuming box. When the sides come down, it’s soon apparent that this is no ordinary trailer.
Vinyl awnings and clever, collapsible furniture allow this camper to expand into a comfortable, fashionable home away from home.
The awnings can be raised or lowered, depending on the weather.
You can even sleep under the stars on a clear night.
With four beds, a removable divider allows for a little privacy while sleeping.
The modern conveniences continue into the kitchenette, complete with cappuccino machine.
Everything is carefully designed to maximize features and minimize space.
This results in some unusual appliances, such as this sink/stovetop combo.
It can be intimidating to work with multiple textile patterns, but when you add layers of patterns onto your bedding, you can create a much more interesting bedroom space. Create a custom look, even when the fabrics used are not! Here are 3 helpful tips to consider while boldly expressing that you don’t play it safe when it comes to your outfitting your bed.
1. Rotate the patterns. Use one on the bed spread, bed skirt, one on the pillows up front, and another on the back pillows.
2. Leave visual “breathing room” between two patterns. Use a solid fabric between two different bold patterns. In this photo the white euro sham pillows are use as an important visual transition to the color and patterns of the throw pillows and duvet cover.
3. Work with three different scaled fabrics. Find one large pattern, one medium, and one small patterned fabric. If you were to use the same sized patterns throughout your bedding set, it would look way too busy. Consider scale and size of your textile designs and vary them to create visual interest. In this picture, the large zebra print on the euro shams contrast well with the circle patterns on the duvet cover.
Hand drawn, this quilt cover set features a spectacular Elk drawing that will bring a unique piece of modern art into your bedroom. Printed onto a luxuriously soft blend of Bamboo and cotton that creates a silky soft feel, this design also features a black triangle print on the reverse. Add some gorgeous color with the hand painted European pillowcases also available in the Elk range.
Plants tend to be an afterthought in interior design. However, we know that plants make us happier, help us recharge and even be more productive.
Using plants in modern design is even more of a challenge because modern design seems to demand clean lines and simplicity. Nature, on the other hand, tends to be wild and chaotic. However, that doesn’t mean modern interiors need to forego greenery. There are ways to make it work and bring plants into the design as a creative layer that is equally as important as the other accessories in the room.
