The Bedroom Design Mistake HGTV's Nate Berkus Doesn't Want You
To Make
According to designer and HGTV star Nate Berkus, symmetry is out. Instead of matching bedside tables, embrace your inner rebel with a cause — uniqueness.
Allow yourself to design your sleep space without feeling the pressure of having everything match perfectly, whether that be colors, wood grains, or furniture pieces.
Pair vintage finds with modern pieces — for instance, an avant-garde lamp sharing space with a repurposed trunk that's seen a century's worth of adventures.
If your bedroom feels overly symmetrical, shuffle up your furniture. Place your bed off-center and pair it with unmatched, unconventional nightstands such as a stack of books.
Nate Berkus believes, "You need to mix in old things or used things and things with patina and character and age so that the room and the space feels assembled over time."
