While light colours will make the room look larger, a darker shade will provide the ultimate environment to relax and sleep.
Update the bed

Restore the dresser

Try giving it a two-toned look and create depth by painting a natural tone with a brighter shade that will make it stand out. Replace it’s original legs with hairpin ones to add an element of twist.
