1. Step up the drama. Go against the norm for small bedrooms and don’t be afraid to add a lively mix of pattern, a dark color on the walls, or even a four poster canopy bed!

2. Be flexible. A nightstand can double as a desk and also give an unexpected twist to the traditional bedroom layout. (This mini desk is from West Elm!)
