To get started, follow the tips below, create a board on Pinterest and pin your and your partner’s favorite bedroom decor. Don’t forget to name your board #ChoiceisYours and submit it here for a chance to win a TEMPUR-Choice™ Supreme Mattress and a Personal Design Consultation with Grace Bonney of Design Sponge.*
Use Your Favorite Colors
You love blue hues and he loves warmer tones, so combine them. You’ll be surprised at how many colors pair well together. And if you still can’t stand your favorite colors in one space, go with a neutral you can agree on and add each color in small doses.
Combine Masculine + Feminine Patterns
Basic stripes work well with many different patterns. Cover an accent wall with feminine floral patterns and add masculinity with striped window treatments so both of you are happy.
If you place a piece of art or image of your favorite vacation spot front and center, you’ll both love spending time in the bedroom.
Add Some Romance
Who doesn’t love a little romance? Bring in dreamy elements, such as a canopy bed with sheer curtains and ambient lighting.
