Many times the attic is a room seldom used by homeowners. An attic is like a blank canvas in which you can design however you please. A great way to utilize this often overlooked space would be for a children's bedroom. The attic is quite the unique space in which your child can grow up in. Using the attic a bedroom would allow for extra living space. Utilizing the attic as an extra room generally raises the value of a home and often times has a great return on investment.
Your bed should be the focal point of your design scheme, so accenting it with a new throw or bed linen set can instantly enhance your theme. For a delicate, feminine room, look for lace and pretty floral designs. For something more contemporary, go for bright colours which will really pop against neutral walls and floors. In the summer months, make your room bright and fresh with yellows and spring greens. Bold floral patterns are always popular during the warmer months, but if they are too quaint for your taste look for striking geometric shapes which lend a contemporary feel to your space. In winter, create a cosy hideaway with cosy knits and faux fur throws, and darker colours such as deep purples and plums. Finish with a scattering of cushions whose designs complement your theme.
