Particularly with the advent of lavish en-suite bath setups and private decks, our sleeping quarters have transformed from strictly utilitarian spaces into retreats that serve as an escape from our busy lives. There's no reason why your bedding can't serve the same purpose. One way to make sure your textiles drive home a relaxed feel is by taking a closer look at color psychology. Blue — particularly in lighter shades like sky and steel — has been shown to evoke feelings of safety and serenity. Consider adding these hues through accent pillows and accessories such as blankets and bed skirts.

While the dominant shade in each room should still be fairly neutral, French country's reliance on subdued hues means you can stretch that definition a little bit further than usual. Focus on colors that are inherently warm and subtle — such as tans, creams and soft yellows — to fill this role. Where your accent colors are concerned, you'll want to choose shades that harken to French country's traditional roots. Choose colors such as rust and antique white, which will infuse the room with a subconsciously historical feel.

It also can be a way to make a bold statement without making a huge investment (and also one that can be changed to match the taste of future buyers). Add a strip of mosaic tile or colored glass along the top of subway-tile wainscoting or let it stand alone against a painted wall to warm up the room. Tile flooring is common in bathrooms and offers a nice alternative to hardwoods, which can get warped if they are exposed to too much water. If you decide to put ceramic tile on the floor, look for a grade of 1 or 2, a water-absorption rating of less than 7 percent and a coefficient of friction above .60, which are slip-resistant and can stand up to water.

The key here is to pick the right wall to be your showpiece — you want one with a strong focal point or the one that's directly across from the door. Where tile is concerned, the phrase “less is more” rings true. Gone are the days of covering the entire room in saturated tile. Rather modern bathrooms use colorful tiles to draw attention to a focal point. Use it in a spa-like rainforest shower or as an eye-catching backsplash behind your vanity.

Be sure to vary the mirrors so that they complement instead of compete against one another. Keep them all on one wall, or you'll risk a funhouse effect. Technically, most mirrors are hung on the wall. However, suspending the mirror from a visible rope or wire is a great way to add an element of interest. You can choose from a variety of materials to hang the mirror, such as thick rope to create a nautical theme or wire for a more modern, industrial vibe — just be sure it's secure.

If you have the space, float a dresser, cabinet or desk in the room with enough space to open the drawers on one side and with the back of the furniture piece as your headboard. The best part is that you can sit lamps or other objects on the dresser to shine over you when reading in bed. If your dresser back is unfinished, paint it or line it with wallpaper. Add a soft touch of texture to your bedroom by hanging a rug on the wall as a headboard alternative. A standard 5×8 rug is wide enough to match a queen size, 60” wide mattress. An Indian dhurrie-style rug (shown above) is the easiest type of rug to work with, since it's lightweight and thin.
