10. Bedroom Throws Pillow Arrangement

Most visually appealing bedrooms seen in magazines will not look as beautiful as they do without proper bedding arrangements. According to Studio McGee, “Elevated styling means paying attention to the details“.

To mirror the Studio Mcgee bedroom, make sure some of your throw pillows match the duvet (you may choose a color in your existing color for this, but NOT the primary color in the scheme).

Layer the pillows, use the right amount of throws for your bed size (don’t go overboard with it), and experiment with patterns and textures.

15. Vertical Wall Paneling

Wooden wall paneling or even wallpaper fitted vertically gives a room a perceived sense of height. Design experts use this trick to make a room appear taller.

For instance, this room designed by Shea and her team features an exposed wooden beam which is typically installed in high ceiling rooms.

This means that the wooden beams may steal some height from the room. So the best way to balance the height is to install a vertical wall paneling.
