The more stimulating and energizing colors like reds deep pinks are normally used for a teenager room or can also be used for a young couple. There are many books to be found that explain the different effects of colors and may even suggest various color schemes. Also browse through some magazines for ideas before decorating the room. There is also the option before purchasing any fabrics try and obtain some swatches of fabric or may be buy a cheep cushion of a color that you like.

If choosing bedding for the guest room always keep in mind that what you like may not be a color that your guest will like so try and keep to colors that are relaxing and not to dramatic. If the style is contemporary use bedding with clean lines no frills and fussy details. Lay some nice throw cushions on top of the bed for that little added detail. Remember that there is more to bedding than sheets pillowcases duvets and blankets. You may want a bedspread to cover your bed with during the day. A bedskirt is also an option for divans. Bedskirts usually go between the mattress and the divans and they hang down to either hide the divans or hide the space under your bed (which is great if you have got a lot of stuff under there!). Pillow shams which are like large decorative pillow cases are another piece of bedding you may decide to purchase. You can often find many lines of bedding that provide all of these in the same pattern or colour.
