Establish your own colour story
A colour story is the combination of complementing or contrasting colours to tell a story. Normally what you can do is to choose your favourite colour and work around it by choosing its complementing or contrasting colours that suits you.

Splurge on What MattersAt this point, you’ve already chosen a theme ready. Your colour story is somehow in place. Its now time to decide on what’s important for your room.
The BedThe most important part of the room is the bed. It serves as the focal point of your room. To help you decide on what kind of bed to get, consider the two general classification of beds:
☑ Connotes luxury and sophistication.
☑ Soft paneling makes in-bed experience more comfortable.
☑ The myriad of upholstery options allows you to express your style more.
☑ Hard to maintain – when it gets soiled, it can be a challenge to clean.
☑ Can have rip and tears that damages its appeal.
☑ May appear dated after a period of time.
☑ Connotes strength and durability.
☑ Easy to clean and maintain.
☑ Timeless and complements any style.
☑ Can be prone to dings and scratches.
☑ Hard edges may cause bruises.

The MattressThe Mattress is perhaps one of the most important bedroom investments ever. Your mattress directly affects the quality of sleep. That is why you have to choose a mattress that will let you get the best ZZzss night after night. To help you shop for a mattress, consider these popular mattress types:
This type of mattress use a system of steel coil springs that are individually pocketed. Pocket spring mattresses are usually zoned. This means that the mattress is divided to give greater support to key areas, or zones, of your body.
Pros: Minimal Partner Disturbance, Cost-effective
Cons: May creak, heavy – hard to move and flip
A memory foam mattress use a high density foam that contour closely to the shape of your body.
Pros: Pressure relief, customised support, minimised partner disturbance
Cons: May get hot (if not gel-infused), on the expensive side
This type of mattress is supported by pocket springs and topped with a memory foam layer for a responsive support and pressure relief.
Pros: combines the best of both worlds
Cons: heavier, on the expensive side
