Decorating a primary bedroom can be an intimidating task. Choosing a color palette, selecting a dresser's finishing, or adding window treatments can sway the tone you're trying to set. Most importantly, you want to create a welcoming retreat that you'll be excited to return to at the end of the day. Check out editors' tips for bedroom decorating ideas. Stylish Southern girls know, however, that it only takes a few easy accessories to give your primary bedroom an elegant look. From fresh flowers to cozy accent chairs, these six decorating additions are effortless to incorporate while still giving your bedroom sophisticated style.

1. Accent Chairs

Create a cozy space for curling up with a book or visiting with guests by adding a seating area in your primary bedroom. Upholstered chairs add extra comfort while also giving more dimensions to the space. Choose fabric that coordinates with the room's color scheme, or throw in pops of color with fun accent pillows.

2. Artwork

Dress up your walls with artwork. Different pieces—especially ones with sentimental value—add personal style to your space. Hang pieces by themselves, or create an eye-catching gallery wall.

3. Fresh Flowers

A bouquet of seasonal blooms instantly brightens a room. Set out the arrangement on your dresser or bedside table.

4. Vanity Tray

Use elements of your beauty routine as intriguing decorative pieces. Display ornate perfume bottles or pieces of jewelry on vanity tray. Check out these tips for creating a stylish yet functional vanity.

5. Luxe Bedding Ensemble

Select a plush bedding ensemble for the bedroom's main focal point. Choose a neutral palette or colorful patterns to use throughout the set. Outfit your bed with coordinating Euro shams, throw pillows, dust ruffle, and headboard. A poised, put-together ensemble instantly enhances a room's style.

6. Traditional monogram

It wouldn't be Southern style without incorporating a monogram. Embroider a monogram onto an upholstered headboard or Euro shams; it gives the room an additional dose of personal flair.
