It might seem like an unusual idea but decorating your bedroom around a theme can go a long way to create a harmonious design.

Good themes for bedrooms include those that take inspiration from eras and broader interior design movements – try embracing traditional bedroom ideas or perhaps incorporate Art Deco decor in the bedroom.
