If you can't bare the thought of white walls, pastel colours are the way to go for small bedrooms. Add a bright bedspread and a colourful curtain to bring more life into it, don't worry a little colour won't make your bedroom smaller.
Maximize your windows by using sheer white curtains instead of heavy drapes which block natural light from entering your room. You can also use sheer curtains in light pink or yellow colour to give your room a cosy glow.
Small bedrooms don't have a lot of space for decorations so it's best to make use of the walls, but with restraint. One idea is to cover part of one wall with a big, colourful painting and then light it up so that it becomes the focus of the bedroom, taking away attention from the space.
Continuity in the design can help make a small bedroom seem larger than it is. For example, you can create continuity in the design by matching the colour of patterns of the bedspread with the curtains.
A unique way to expand your bedroom visually is to add a decorative glass panel to the room and light it up properly—easy and effective. You can also play with geometrical patterns to have a greater impact, as pictured here.
