I have been very fortunate to be blessed with many “helpers” and resources behind the scenes at Stagetecture. One of them is my great Interior Design intern – Rachel Morgan here in Jacksonville, Florida. Rachel has helped me on numerous projects and she loves decor and helping homeowners with design dilemmas! Rachel continues her feature on Stagetecture called “Get the Look”. Where she has taken a theme and created a Olioboard design to help you get the look at your home.
Thanks Rachel for all that you do!
Taking a concept and making your own can be a little difficult. Sometimes you can go a little overboard and your room becomes more of an obsessed mess, than a beautiful oasis.

How to Create a Dream Bedroom
First find one item you want to be your focal point. This can be a pillow, painting or even a piece of furniture. What you don’t want to do is to find too many focal pieces. By using one focal point it regulates those urges to add more.
Next is using that focal piece to bring in the other items, there is a catch, your items should be less prominent than your focal point. If you want to add interest, choose different textures.
Last is that there must be a balance. When bringing in something with great detail, bring in another item with little to no detail. This makes sure that your eyes don’t travel but instead settle on the gorgeous items you chose. So remember Focal piece, pieces that compliment your focal piece, not overwhelm it, and last balance it out.
While your bedroom can reflect your fantasies and dreams, ensure you don’t let it get out of control! Remember there is always a chance to add or detract with bed linen, wall color, accessories and more. Everything doesn’t have to be displayed day one.
