1. Light it up
Every space should have a few light sources beyond windows and what’s overhead. Add an arc floor lamp to the mix for a directional glow when reading in bed.
2. Go for a daybed
Littles love daybeds—the key is finding one they won’t hate in 10 years. The Rachael Ray Home Chelsea Collection Upholstered Daybed ($995 for twin, rachaelrayhome.com for stores) has classic lines (and deep drawers for storage) so your sleeping beauty won’t age out of it.
3. Work with layers
Dress up wood floors or update old wall-to-wall carpeting by layering rugs. Pair a fun pattern or an irregularly shaped faux hide with a simpler style.
