General lighting should be dimmable, with reading lamps available, soft linens, colors that you find soothing, and don’t forget the sound machine!
Perhaps you love the look of a low modern bed or a canopy frame with fabric, either way your bedroom should be a relaxing, comfortable, stylish and functional retreat.
