ManoMano beds have recently become very popular, especially in Japan. I have been wanting one for a long time now. But it’s not just Japanese beds that are fashionable these days. They come in many different styles and are now very affordable too. So I thought I would show you how to Decorate a ManoBed – both indoors and outdoors!
Pillows & Cushions
Pillows and cushions used to be the essential decorative pieces in a room. You either had the traditional round pillow (or had to make do with pillows that had no shape at all) or a small square pillow. If it was a child’s room, you could have the more striking pillow types. The most striking pad you could ever see had to be the original ManoMano style.
The original ManoMano had a long handle and looked somewhat suspiciously like a stork. However, it was the height of Japanese interior design and gave great pride and enjoyment to the homeowner. It was a huge success, and before long, the ManoMano was copied everywhere. Many American manufacturers picked up the styling and incorporated the long handle into their pillow products.
But these days’ things have changed. Soft covers have given us a new alternative to the bulky ManoMano. Many people love the look of these covers because they allow you to change the entire room’s look very quickly. Even some bodies will go over just about any mattress, giving a softer look to your bed and making it look like the bed is the central location in the room. The more you change the face of the room, the more value you add to your house – if your ManoMano is big enough!
Mini Filing Cabinets
Another alternative is a pillow vanity. If you don’t have ample space in your room but still want to give it a tidy appearance, a small one with vanity features will provide it with an organized and sophisticated look. Some of these look like mini filing cabinets and have open shelves, drawers and can be completely hidden under the pillows. They are very convenient, and if you have an ultra-modern or ultra-traditional looking room, this may be the way to go.
Piece of Furniture
Another idea is an armoire. Armoires are functional and beautiful. If you are lucky enough to have a spare room, put one together. Some are fully equipped with light fixtures so you can read or work in total darkness, while some are plain and function just like any other piece of furniture. Either way, they add a lot to the look of your room.
An exciting idea for decoration would be a shoji lamp. These usually come in a box, but apart from that, they are pretty much blank. Just look for one that suits your room the best and put it up! These are usually Japanese in design, but you can find many of them in Asian or European designs. It’s kind of weird but unique. A shoji lamp in your bedroom will make it look a lot more Japanese!
If I Don’t Have a Lot of Money
How can I decorate my bedroom? The sky is the limit. Use your imagination and see what you can come up with. Don’t be afraid to try new things and experiment a little. Who knows, you might come up with something that people will admire. Good luck with whatever you decide to decorate!
If you are on a tight budget but still want to give your room a great look, then painting or staining a section of your wall in a bright color will make it look brighter and more inviting. You can also repaint the entire wall if you want to make the room look more spacious. This works exceptionally well for rooms that have light coming through.
Essential Part of Good Decorating
How can I decorate my bedroom if I have a terrible vision? Of course, good eyesight is an essential part of good decorating. However, there are plenty of other ways to make your room visually appealing. For example, adding colourful throw rugs to the floor will make it look like it has more texture and interest. Also, hanging curtains and blinds on the window will make your room look bigger.
How can I decorate my bedroom if I don’t have much room? The best way to solve this problem is to go with simple lines when decorating. Look for ways to bring in more depth and texture by using simple geometric shapes or patterns. Instead of trying to cram in as many things as you can in your bedroom, try to find room decorating ideas that make each object meaningful and give it the attention it deserves.
