A scrollwork motif appeared throughout this old-world-inspired bedroom. The inlaid wood on the bed frame sets the tone, curvy arms on the chandelier repeat the theme, and loops and twirls in the decorative paint treatment on the deep cornice as well as the ceiling gently wrap the room with scrollwork.
Soothing and Subtle
Creamy plaster walls are light but not bright in this soothing master bedroom. The rest of the room follow suit: colors that are pleasing but not bold, and unfussy furnishings with good lines.
Part of the appeal of old-world styles is the rough-edged quality. Modern creature comforts, however, are something few would give up for the sake of authenticity. In this bedroom, coarsely woven fabrics in earthy tones cover the tall headboards and drape to the floor as bed skirts. The bedding is tightly woven modern material for comfort.
Lots of small items often don't convey a style as well as one central item. The tall iron bed with tomato-red drapes that can wrap around it have a pure feeling of Old Italy; the damask-print pillows crown the look.
Create great drama in a room by using a few well-chosen large pieces. Every piece in this bedroom fits the look of Tuscany; only the bedside table is small. The pieces are nicely proportioned to a space that boasts a high ceiling.
Fade to White
Use the full range to add excitement to a neutral palette. Light walls, midtone wood, and dark accents here keep the room interesting without interfering with the rustic European feel.
Drapes, cornices, and the ironwork bed share a gently curving vine motif that speaks of old-world elegance. The muted neutrals and blue palette reinforce the softness of the pattern.
Soothing sage green washes over this grand bedroom. The towering ceiling is covered with wood beams and paneling. Soft blues complement the spa-like feel.
Inviting, restful shades of wheat and tan wrap this bedroom in a relaxing feeling. Gentle flecks of burgundy red on the bedding add just enough color.
In this bedroom, a collection of colorful plates functions as a unique art piece above the headboard. Playing off the colors found in the bedspread and throw pillows, the plates add another layer of texture and color to the otherwise neutral space.
Open Up to Style
Use a consistent color scheme throughout your home to create a space that's filled with your personal style. Here, a bedroom off the living area continues its palette of slate gray, warm yellow, and dark navy to create a cohesive feeling. Hints of bold pattern throughout the two spaces creates a trendy, youthful vibe.
Warmth of Neutrals
This pretty bedroom proves that decorating with neutrals can be anything but boring. The room's beige palette gets a boost of personality thanks to tone-on-tone patterns and a mix of natural textures.
A Beautiful Nest
Aqua walls create a striking style statement in this bedroom. Caramel-color accents throughout the space prevent the bold color from looking childlike. Vintage-inspired furnishings, such as the weathered bed frame, lend a unique juxtaposition to the trendy geometric-pattern bedding and accessories.
With a nearly all-white palette, this bedroom is a breath of fresh air. Creamy white walls and draperies keep the space feeling warm. Accents of cool gray and blue add contrast without interrupting the fresh look.
Sleeping in Style
A patterned, fabric covered headboard says style against white walls. Wide striped draperies infuse the room with another layer of pattern, but they don't steal attention away from the headboard. Coral accents throughout the space provide warmth and color. Smaller scale patterns on the bedding and solid pillows complete the room's pattern mix.
In this bedroom, a patterned fabric bed frame functions as a work of art. The colorful print blends well with the warm wood accents throughout the rest of the room. Beige-and-white bedding and curtains echo the look of the bed frame. Scale plays an important role in this room's design. Because the ceilings are tall, the walls needed to be treated accordingly. The oversize mirror fills the space above the bed better than a regular sized mirror and the large damask pattern on the curtains adds interest to the solid fabric without become too busy.
White walls and sheer patterned draperies allow this bedroom to look open and airy despite it's small size. The wood flooring and the dark painted dresser introduce visual weight to the room. An eclectic assemblage of bedding?citron sheets, sea glass green shams, and block print linens?add sink-in comfort to the cozy bedroom.
Green painted beaded-board walls lend organic appeal to this sunny bedroom. Nature-inspired art prints and accessories sprinkled throughout the room also nod to the outdoors. The four-poster in blonde maple adds a rustic simplicity to the bedroom, while nearly sheer plaid curtains soften the corners of the bed.
Whispers of Texture
A variety of materials and finishes lend interest to this bedroom's neutral palette. The bed frame's caning and distressed finish combine with matelasse linens to create a textural backdrop for toile accent pillows.
Follow the Curve
A French chair’s curvaceous silhouette inspired the design of this upholstered headboard. Hung on the wall, French porcelain plates also follow a curve to frame a vintage mirror. Yellow-based neutrals offer a soft serene color palette.
