We all dream endlessly about living in our dream home and yet when the time comes to decorate the dream home give more importance to pragmatism than personal desires. If you love a color, then including it in your home décor is a must. Wine red, turquoise or jade green, whichever may be the uncommon color of your dreams you can use it in decorating the home.

You should keep the general color palette of your bedroom neutral ranging from white to beige and buy bed curtains in your favorite shades. Create contrast with curtains in the predominant neutral shade for making the bedroom more striking. Use the same color for accentuating every room of your house for achieving a well harmonized look.

Paint a canopy

Installing a canopy over the bed can be expensive and difficult. If you really want to keep things simple then use optical illusion in your favor. Depending on the color of your bedroom, choose a light or dark contrasting color. Pain the wall behind the bed and the ceiling above in this color for giving the illusion of a canopy.

Use L-shaped curtain rod for hanging the bed curtain. The only problem with cost effective L-shaped curtains is that they do not let the curtains go all around the bed. But, the effect it offers is pleasing nonetheless.

Privacy for the kids

If you find hanging curtain rods on the ceiling around the bed a bit too much hectic then concentrate only on the header area. You can get a U-shaped small curtain hanger and fix it on the ceiling above the head of the bed. Use curtains in smooth or textured fabric according to your desire for giving your bedroom a touch of regality. For a more dramatic look, drape curtains made with heavier fabric like velvet or satin along the wall of the head of your bed.
