Let’s start with statement lighting. If you’ve assumed pendant lights are only for living and dining areas, think again. The lighting below from BoConcept includes the Cutaway Pendant that hangs in the center of the room and the Dot Pendants on either side of the bed.
There’s something unexpected about a pendant or chandelier hanging in the middle of the bedroom. Especially when it boasts a structural form, like the Jeremy Cole Aloe Bud Multi Suspension Lamp below. [from New Mood Design]

Wall Art Over the Headboard
There’s nothing like a headboard that stands out against a painted wall. But the setup only gets better when wall art is used to emphasize this area of the bedroom. Grouping two or more pictures is an easy way to make an impact. [from Room & Board]
The more the merrier! Try a grouping of four pieces, such as the peachy modern selections below. Note how this artwork draws the eye upward and punctuates the bed with a creative touch. [from Moeski Design Agency]
Then again, converting the area above your headboard to a gallery-style space adds undeniable creativity to the bedroom. Unify the artwork with frames of the same color, or you keep it eclectic, as shown in the bedroom below. [from Lonny]
Mirrors can also serve as wall art statements over the headboard. The trio of sunburst mirrors in the next featured image add sophistication and modern flair to this warm-toned space. [from Rosewood Custom Builders]
Plants add a breath of fresh air to the bedroom. Literally. Incorporating plant life into your boudoir is an easy way to add a creative touch. For example, the potted palm below brings a hint of the tropics to this modern space. [from Room & Board]
In this next sleeping space, plants are a significant part of the decor, much like the bedding and furnishings. [from Anthropologie]

Plants can also create a resort-style feel in the bedroom. The master bedroom below resembles a luxury hotel room, complete with a chaise lounge in the corner. [from Interiors by Steven G., image by Barry Grossman Photography]
Does your room have a view of the outdoors? Don’t forget to call attention to your outdoor greenery by showing off the windows. For starters, don’t obstruct the glass panes with heavy drapes. The bedroom in the next featured image includes furnishings arranged in such a way that ignoring the wooded view is impossible. [from Solar Innovations]
A little color goes a long way. When it comes to incorporating unusual hues, remember that bright isn’t always best. Sometimes the use of subtlety is equally powerful, as shown in this next featured space. Check out the soft, warm tones and gold accents. [from Redmond Aldrich, photos by Matthew Millman]
At the same time, color can take you far, especially when interesting combinations are a focal point. The red and blue wall art below is the perfect counterpart to the stripes and diamonds that infuse this eclectic bedroom. [from Lonny]
Speaking of powerful combinations, don’t be afraid to go bold. The orange and pink tones in the space below could not be more striking. Or refreshing! It’s beginning to look a lot like summer. [from Lonny]
A couple of strong accents can do wonders for a master bedroom. It’s true–sometimes less is more. In the next featured image, a soothing aqua space is punctuated by bright table lamps in mismatched shades. [from Lonny]
Looking for an easy way to add a pop of color? Incorporate a throw pillow or two featuring interesting hues, such as hot rosy pink. The vivid tones in the pillows below are the perfect counterpart to this room’s shades of chocolate. [from Refined]
