A few of my favorite tips when creating an inspiration board: Start collecting your favorite images whether it be magazine tear outs, pieces of fabric, quotes, cards, and print outs. I love laying out the images before I pin them to my pinboard. Don’t be afraid to use your gallery wall as apart of your overall gallery wall. Do incorporate jewelry or sparkly items to up the glam factor!

I recently came across this beautiful neutral bedroom by Amanda Barnes on My Domaine. What I love most about this bedroom is that it achieves a perfect mix of tranquility without skimping on color. Adding a piece of furniture like a bench at the foot of the bed allows for a look of luxury and sophistication. The flow of your bedroom is also crucial – you never want to obstruct walkways. If your bedroom is limited in size, choosing a narrow bench is a great alternative to help add dimension to your bedroom.
