By Lisa Frederick


They're the most personal spaces in our homes—private retreats where we spend nearly a third of our lives. Yet paradoxically, master bedrooms often fall to the bottom of the decorating priority list, simply because they're not on display to visitors and guests. Austin, Texas, designer Laura Britt of Laura Britt Design offers her top tips to transform your bedroom into the haven it deserves to be.

Position Your Pad

First things first: Where do you put the bed? It's the anchor of your bedroom space, so its position sets the tone for the rest of the furnishings and accents.

"One of the things we really try to take into account is where you put the head of the bed and the orientation of that to the doors and views," Britt says. "It depends on the bones of the room, but I have a preference for the bed facing so that you have a view to the door. You can see who's coming and going. It's your most private space in your home, so have a view that connects you."
