TV design show host Thom Filicia doesn't believe in sacrificing comfort to create an elegant look for a bedroom, or to follow a trend that doesn't take into account one's personal taste.

He sums up his decorating style in three words – comfort, sophistication and personality. "I believe in creating spaces that are unique to each individual, using color, pattern and texture to reflect one's personality," he told

That approach has made Filicia a sought-after designer, from his hosting duties on the Style Network's show Dress My Nest to his book, Thom Filicia Style: Inspired Ideas for Creating Rooms You'll Love.

When it comes to setting the tone for a bedroom, Filicia focuses on the bedding by using a mix of lush colors, bold patterns and a variety of textures for comforters, pillows and other pieces.

One way to choose a window treatment that complements the bedding is to shop for custom blinds online. Window blinds can be fitted to any size window in a variety of colors and finishes to match any décor.

The right lighting adds to a restful bedroom. "We spend so much time in our beds and they become a retreat for us at the end of the day," Filicia told the website.
