Barely-there-blue walls make this bedroom a relaxing oasis. Splashes of punchy coral in the floral-pattern bed linens add a dash of warmth to the otherwise-icy color scheme.
Simple white bedding creates a blank canvas for a variety of accents in this bedroom. The eye-catching headboard was made using a patterned tablecloth and a curtain rod. An extra tablecloth was trimmed to size and used to make a coordinating bolster pillow.
Hand-glazed woven raffia wallpaper on the upper walls envelopes this bedroom in natural texture. White wainscoting on the lower walls provides a visual connection to the room's exposed-beam ceiling. A striped wool blanket adds subtle color without distracting from the unique wall treatment and slate tile floor.
In this bedroom, timeworn pieces mingle expertly with contemporary finds to create a space that's filled with personality. The clean-lined headboard pairs well with the vintage nightstands. A colorful throw and shams breathe life into the beige bed linens.
The New Neutral
The color gray is a delightful and stylish alternative to standard white. In this master bedroom, the cool gray walls are contrasted by dark wood furnishings and bright white trim. The dramatic chandelier in the center of the room draws the eye upward, which emphasizes the ultrathick trim along the ceiling edge.
From the headboard to the custom upholstered chair to the foot-of-the-bed trunk, this bedroom is dripping with vintage appeal. The pretty floral bed linens add feminine flair, which is echoed by the glitzy chandelier and bedside sconces.
Soft grays and blues give this bedroom calming energy. The rich wood flooring and rattan bed frame add natural texture and warmth to the cool palette. The foot-of-the-bed trunk offers storage space for a variety of out-of-season items.
Warm, off-white walls get a splash of color thanks to a handful of pastel blue accents in this sunny bedroom. In one corner of the room, a blue-painted secretary desk provides convenient storage and display space.
A navy blue accent wall pulls double duty as a headboard in this bedroom. A playful mix of patterns throughout the room conveys a youthful energy, which is echoed by splashes of warm orange and gold hues.
Bask in the Sun
A tone-on-tone, buttery yellow color scheme drenches this bedroom with warmth and cheer. Accents of blue -- featured on the area rug, bench, and bed linens, to name a few -- prevent the palette from looking one-note.
Yellow is a favorite color for Mediterranean styles; the hue spreads sunshine in any room. A tall ironwork bed accented with sheer white curtains creates a patina of time, as do the deeply textured fabrics on the bed skirt and rug.
Scrolling ironwork conveys a Tuscan feel but can be unsuited for a bedroom. Instead, a fine filigree pattern for the bedspread does the trick. Nailhead design on a linen headboard combined with a dark wood ceiling accent and the floor complete the look.
The barely green walls, white architectural details and a palette of grays in this bedroom allow personality-filled accents to truly shine. While the elements of the room are decidedly eclectic, they are well edited and the room isn't overcrowded. Next to the bed, an elephant-shaped statue functions as a tiny night stand. The patterned area rug adds warmth underfoot and style leading up to the bed.
Pops of Color
Accents of royal blue, orange, and hot pink add oodles of color to this otherwise neutral bedroom. The tones play out in less vibrant shades on the antique rug, a move that makes the room look pulled together, but also plays up the modern-traditional style of the room.
The all-white walls in this bedroom get a style boost thanks to a panel of patterned fabric hung behind the headboard. A use of midtone grays creates a dynamic color palette while remaining neutral. Assorted furniture shapes bring the room to life?from the rolled ends of the upholstered bed, to the unique bench perched on animal legs.
Strict symmetry makes a big style statement in this bedroom. The two beds are identical, right down to the arrangement of throw pillows and sunburst mirrors above the beds. The bench between the two beds serves as a nightstand for both, eliminating the need for two pieces of furniture. Warm walls, window treatments, and flooring contrast the dark finish of the traditional-style beds. Handblocked textiles on the beds add unique pattern and interest.
In this shared bedroom, a symmetrical arrangement of furnishings and accessories calls the playful mix of color and pattern to order. Brushed-metal bed frames provide traditional appeal, while the printed bedding and chevron area rug incorporate youthful energy. Pale blue walls match the bedding, which also sports a fun-yet-chic pink print.
Rich brown-gray walls lend drama to this master bedroom, which is emphasized by the four-post bed and wow-worthy chandelier. The bed is framed by a nightstand on each side for a calming, symmetrical arrangement.
Soft blue-painted walls and delicate bird-pattern linens make this master bedroom a relaxing escape. The headboard is elevated to focal-point status thanks to the embellished nailhead trim and the canopy of fabric behind it.
Layer the Look
Elaborately layering on a style works in large rooms with a defined palette, such as this bedroom. A tapestry triptych behind the bed anchors the look. Swaths of yellow-gold fabric drape the bed and windows. Accents of blue add a cooling touch. Curving wood in the chandelier and architectural piece on the cornice pay homage to the art piece's frame.
