What Does Your Bedroom Say About You?
If a home’s kitchen is the heart of the home, the bedroom is the personal oasis. After all, the bedroom is the place you escape to after a long day of work: it should be a place of relaxation, comfort and a place to showcase your personal style. When your week, or year, gets busy, it can be difficult to find the time to make the décor changes you’d like to.
Your bed sets the stage of your room and is a great way to give your space a much-needed update. With a bedroom that speaks to your personal style, you might even find yourself forgoing brunch on the weekend to spend a few more minutes in bed. We’ve outlined some of the most common bedroom personalities and some furniture choices to make your space speak your style in Chicago and Indianapolis.

Although we tend towards massive overhauls when we’re trying to give our room a facelift, it’s often something small that can really make a room pop. When you’re decorating on a budget, you don’t have the flexibility you otherwise would if you were flush with cash. We’ve rounded up a few of the most impactful low cost decorating ideas you can use to make your living room feel like a whole new space.
Create an Optical Illusion
Decorative mirrors for living room spaces are always a good idea. They’re especially transformative if your space is on the smaller side. Mirrors instantly make a room feel bigger and create the illusion of extra space. When placed strategically, they will also spotlight the best parts of your living room. Whether you use bold, contemporary wall mirrors or something more traditional, this is an asset that will always complement your space.
Ambience at the Flip of a Switch
The power of lighting is real. A few bulbs have the ability to make or break the ambience of a room, so it’s important to always use lighting fixtures for your home to your advantage. Table lamps will work to your benefit thanks to their small size. A bold base and understated shade often feel like a mini art installation. If you pair this with a low wattage bulb, they also create a cozy, warm atmosphere. Going for a more airy, spacious feel? Invest in a minimalist floor lamp that will fill the whole room with light.
Start From the Bottom Up
Select every item in your room with intention, and start by looking down. An area rug provides a space efficient yet strong accent for your living room. It’s also is the perfect place to introduce a little color if your space feels washed out. Before selecting your accent carpet, make sure that it complements that style of your bar table, sofas, and chairs.

Increasingly, our living rooms have become the grand central station of our home—it’s where we (sometimes) eat, watch TV, read books and entertain. It’s the one room where our personal style gets to really pop. If you’ve taken a look around your living room and found it to be more drab than fab, it might be time to invest in some key design elements to elevate your style. At The RoomPlace in Chicago and Indianapolis, you don’t have to go broke while boosting your living room’s look. Learn 3 different ways you can upgrade your living room without going over $300.
By far, accent chairs are one of the easiest ways to pull in your individual style because they are so many options to choose from. Do you want a swivel chair? What about a traditional, ormate chair? Or maybe a wingback is more your speed? Whatever the case may be, accent chairs provide exactly what the name suggests—a decorative accent to your otherwise perfectly polished room.
If you’re currently rocking hardwood floors, an area rug is an absolute must. Especially in our harsh Chicago winter, nothing will save your chilly feet more comfortably than a plush area rug—perfectly matched to your specific style, that is. Just like accent chairs, area rugs come in tons of different color combinations, textures and prints so you can have not just any old rug, but the right piece for your room.
These aren’t your parents’ ottomans. Not only are ottomans completely functional as foot rests or extra seating—this decorative choice can also be used for covert storage! If you find yourself struggling to locate extra room for throw blankets, small pillows or magazines, an ottoman that can hold your extra stuff is an easy answer to a clutter problem.

Whoever said you had to choose between having an organized, comfortable living room and a wide open space to host your next Super Bowl party definitely hasn’t met the creative minds at The RoomPlace or any of our determined Chicago and Indianapolis customers. If you’re gearing up to entertain 10 or more of your closest friends on February 1, we have a few tips to impart on how to get your living room Super Bowl ready.
De-clutter if you are short on time to clean
Let’s face it—not all of us have enough time to give our living spaces the deep clean we’d like. If you’re short on time before guests arrive, a simple de-clutter can do wonders to open up your room and get it comfortable enough for eager sports fans.
Reposition your sectional couch
Thankfully, unless you’ve bolted your furniture to the floor, couches are easy enough to move around. Sit in every seat of your sectional—can you still see the TV? Is there a lamp in the way? If you’re having trouble seeing the screen from any spot on your sectional, reposition it until you’re able to get the full viewing experience.
Divide and conquer
If your living space just doesn’t allow for the number of guests you’d like to invite, consider opening up another room of your home for viewership. Splitting up your guests between rooms will make for a unique experience for everyone—especially if you have a few Seattle fans sprinkled in with your New England fans.

Have you ever flipped through a magazine and were blown away by the detailed and elegant choices the interior designer picked out? We’ve been there too–which is why we’re going to show you how to tap in to your inner decorator and use simple color combinations that will amplify the style in your Chicago or Indianapolis home.
Opposites actually do attract!
Opposites on the color wheel, that is. The idea here is pretty simple: colors opposite each other on the color wheel will complement each other. So, blue/yellow; purple/light green; red/dark green are all good beginner combos on your journey to become a color combination expert. Let’s take a look at some of these combinations in action to give more of a sense for why they work so well.
So, here we have the Chazy, a turquoise sectional with matching turquoise and yellow/chartreuse throw pillows. Part of the reason why this combination works so well is that they are both cool tones, meaning both the turquoise and the yellow have more blue in their hue than red. The brightness of the pillows matches the brightness of the couch but more subtly. Pairing light colors together can be tricky since you don’t want to overpower either color.
Pick one neutral and pair it with additional accent colors
Is it just us or do you think this room would be garish if all of the furniture was bright yellow? The reason the Macey’s rich espresso color with the reds, yellows and blues works so well is that brown is a distinct neutral color. Meaning, it’s the color that can fade into the background and let the other colors be the star of the show. Red, yellow and blue are primary colors—using just these three hues, you can create every color we can see! When they’re brought in as accent colors, they do a nice job of complementing each other without fighting for center stage.
Tap into gradients and create a spectrum from one color to a lighter color
As we can see, a gradient naturally grows from darkest to lightest with only the barest shifts visible to the eye as the color changes. You can use this concept to your advantage in your next Chicago bedroom set—like the Milano. Take into consideration the color of your furniture along with the color of your throw pillows and bedding to create a soft shift from darkest to light. If you were to place navy blankets or navy accents around the room, the look might come across as harsh since there’s a big gap between the soft turquoise and navy.
