Decorating Tips To Enhance A Contemporary Daybed And Its Surroundings

by Scarlett Ross

If you like the sleek and simple style of contemporary furniture and have chosen to purchase a modern metal-framed daybed to update your bedroom, use the following tips to enhance the bed and its surroundings so that you are provided with a functional and attractive place to relax and sleep:

Comforter And Pillows That Contain A Basic Print

Purchase a comforter and pillows that won't overpower the daybed's simplicity. Bedding items that contain a basic print that is one or two neutral colors will provide the bed with subtle beauty and because the bedding items will lack detail, you may find that you aren't distracted during times that you are trying to unwind and fall asleep. Secure a mattress pad over the daybed's mattress before placing sheets, a comforter, and pillows on the bed so that you are provided with extra padding that will help you achieve a restful night's sleep.

Modern Artwork And Wall Sconces

Visit an art gallery to view modern artwork and select pieces that will add depth to your bedroom. A clay sculpture or painting will provide you with a focal point that can be used during times that you would like to take your mind off of the pressures of everyday life. Purchase wall sconces that are adjustable and install them on either side of the artwork that you purchased.

Insert a low-wattage bulb in each sconce so that you will be provided with minimal lighting when you turn the lights on. The soft glow that each bulb emits will draw attention to the artwork and will provide you with the opportunity to enjoy the art at night. 

Curio Cabinet And Figurines

If you have recently begun to collect porcelain or glass figurines and think that they would blend in well with the daybed and other decor, purchase a curio cabinet that has a metal frame and glass cover. Use a drill and hardware to secure the curio cabinet directly across from the daybed. Use a lint-free cloth to wipe off the surface of each porcelain or glass figurine before placing the collectibles on the shelves that are inside of the cabinet.

If you choose to purchase new pieces to add to the collection at a later date, rearrange the pieces that are on the shelves so that they contain an even amount of space between them. Plug in a floor lamp next to the cabinet so that you can enjoy gazing at your collection whenever you spend time in your bedroom.

About Me

Gardening For Aesthetics

If you aren't interested in growing your own fruits and veggies, gardening becomes more about aesthetics than it does about functionality. I started thinking carefully about what I could do in order to make my yard more beautiful a few years ago, so I began tearing out the weeds and focusing on creating a more welcoming space. I added a few trees and shrubs, renovated my flower beds, and started focusing on finding ground covers that would look great. This blog is all about gardening to improve the aesthetics of your yard.
