Though, here are some more ideas.
First of all, no house decorated in a French country way shouldn’t have French decorated bedroom. Basically, a bedroom like this should be decorated with a big matrimonial bed, with green or sea colors. Also, the walls should have a neutral color. Though, the curtains should have the same color as the sheets, and also, the curtains should also have different decorations. As for the lightning sources, simple chandeliers with 2 or 4 heads should do the trick. If possible, then the coverage of the chandelier should have either floral decorations, or just oval shapes.

Let’s face it: vintage furniture is the perfect decoration for any retro house or room. As well, old wood furniture can perfectly suit any room or house as long as it is well taken care of. Though, after a while, the old wooden furniture may loss some of its colors, or why not, may get some defects, defects that might not be corrected without applying a proper painting.
But how to paint old wood furniture? In the next following lines, you will find out what exactly needs to be done in order to paint –without failing- old wooden furniture.
First of all, it is recommended to buy wood strippers and apply on each part of the furniture. If the furniture has multiple components and doors, then they should be carefully removed and each of them, as well, should get a treatment with some wood stripper.

In their place, steel wool can easily be used, as it is more effective and recommended by most of the furniture manufacturers.
If you have ever seen “Memoirs Of A Gheisha”, then you must already know how a Japanese bedroom looks like. It’s a common trend nowadays, among teens and even matures, to decorate their bedrooms in a Japanese style. Though, as they haven’t studied enough, in a lot of cases people are making deliberately or not, a total mess out of their bedrooms.
In order to decorate a Japanese bedroom, some of the Japanese decorating principles must be respected.
First of all, the walls should be painted in a solid color. Therefore no posters or silly pictures are allowed. The family pictures make an exception, though, but there is also a rule for them: maximum 3 pictures in the whole bedroom.
The second principle is related to the furniture. The Japanese are usually concentrating their furniture in the middle of the room. Even if the Europeans as well as the rest of the people are used to place the bedroom near the wall, the Japanese are placing it in the middle of the room. Also, the bed does not have a high platform, and this is why most of the people think that the Japanese are sleeping on a mattress. Nothing more further of the truth that that.
