It's really important to think through how you're going to spend your time in your bedroom, because it will directly affect the functionality of your space.

Luckily, I am not in love with any one piece of decor in my bedroom, so I can easily change my interior decor style from traditional to mid-century modern. Let's pretend for a moment that I did love one piece of furniture in my room - a traditional bookcase. If I were to design my space around that piece of decor, my fresh, new room doesn't have to match the existing design style, I can have an eclectic design style. That would mean that I would simply incorporate traditional and mid-century modern nightstands. Ultimately, YOU want to be the one that finds your space aesthetically pleasing.

Also, make sure to list out your likes and dislikes when it comes to colors, textures etc. I know that I really like natural elements in my home, because it makes a more calming atmosphere for me.
