Here are 3 Ideas to decorate a Newly Wed bedroom
Your bedroom is a very personal and special space in your home and it should embody positive and peaceful elements so that you can rejuvenate and get a restful night of sleep. As a newly-wed you are starting your life as a married couple and your bedroom should reflect who you are as a couple, your style and your personality. If you can incorporate some of these design elements and decorate your newly-wed bedroom, it will bring you great peace and joy and enhance your married life.
- Statement Lighting: Pay attention to the lighting in the bedroom because it can add elegance and make a statement. Consider the natural light that you have along with the size and the ceiling height of the room. Building layers of light is a good idea because your bedroom lighting should create a relaxing and soothing atmosphere and at the same time throw light on certain areas such as reading or a rug in the room or art on your wall. So soft ambient light combined with bright spot lights should make your bedroom a haven for you to retire for the day.
- Rugs: Avoid wall-to-wall carpeting if you can. A rug, on the other hand, adds warmth and texture to a room, and you can achieve different looks by layering and/or adding colorful throws. Rugs can soften hard edges and can accommodate difficult layouts. They open up the space, and tie the room together. If your room has hard floors, an area rug will help absorb sound, keep it warm and make it just a little bit easier to get out of bed on cold mornings by providing your feet a cushion. If you have carpeting, place an area rug right on top. It’s a great way to add extra color, texture, and pattern to your space.

- Art: One large or 2 -3 small sized original artwork will add cheer and uniqueness to your bedroom. It is considered good Feng Shui ( Positive energy) to have a original art in your home especially in your bedroom. A piece that will reflect who you are as a couple and add style to your space. A well placed art will turn any bedroom into a stylish personal space for the couple.

Getting Art for your Newly-Wed Home
Meet James and Scott – one of Mishkalo’s couples who are tying the knot in September.
Their love story started several years back at a social event for a Flag football league that they were a part of. Soon their friendship grew and they moved in together as a couple along with their two adorable cats: Binx and Penny.
Last year, at the famous Spanish steps in Washington DC, Scott proposed. Why there, you may ask. The couple have traveled extensively together and a moment that stood out for both of them was the Spanish steps in Rome. Designed in the early 20th century during D.C.’s “City Beautiful” movement, the Spanish Steps vaguely resemble the original version in Rome. Like Rome, D.C.’s Spanish Steps are a neighborhood landmark and a natural gathering place with a romantic touch. James happily accepted the Scott’s proposal.

A few months later, as the reality of their future marital life sunk in, they started looking at their home differently. James says, “we realized that this is not just a place where we came to after work, but a place of comfort, love and our hopes for the future. And the place looks dull with bare walls that probably depresses even Mikey and Josie.”
As they got around to planning their wedding – and the inevitable choice of a wedding registry – they couldn’t think of anything they wanted. Having been together, they had a fully functional home with all its utilitarian comforts.

During this time James came across Mishkalo – a wedding registry for art. “The idea appealed to me immediately” he said. “Art is a lasting, special gift that we’ll have forever, especially when given as a token of love from our friends and family. This art will help turn our house into a proper home”
James and Scott have set their wedding date for September 2018, exactly a year after the proposal.
