Eclectic decorating gives this bedroom both a lively and restful personality. While neutral, tactile fabrics dress the bed, bold curtains and graphic artwork add energy to the balance.
Wrapped in Warmth
Warm hues, shimmery wallpaper, and an enveloping headboard come together in this master bedroom for an upscale finish that creates a cozy sanctuary.
Coloring the Mood
While deep patterns of slate blue ground this bedroom in sophistication, a cream-on-cream palette from eye-level up establishes an airy, relaxed ambience.
The clutter-free calmness of this bedroom comes from a completely organic approach to decorating. Organic cotton textiles dress the bamboo platform bed, while driftwood is crafted into a contemporary nightstand, and the shapely wall-mount headboard comes from a fallen burr oak tree.
This charming bedroom doesn't follow any steadfast decorating rules. Instead, personal taste and secondhand character make its elements work together beautifully.
Modern floral wallpaper gives this bedroom a jolt of youthful energy. A patterned area rug plays off of the shapes featured in the wallpaper. The traditional-style bed frame creates a unique juxtaposition amidst other contemporary pieces.
In this master bedroom, one wall features a stained wood covering, drawing attention to the traditional-style bed and headboard. The other walls were given a coat of putty-color paint, which strikes a balance between the hues in the accent wall and dark wood furniture.
Attics are often unused spaces that offer an array of decorating possibilities. Here, an attic makes the perfect place for a restful master suite. Horizontal paneling lining the walls adds subtle texture to the neutral color scheme and also emphasizes the ceiling's unique angles.
A simple ledge mounted above the bed visually expands the short, modern headboard. The do-it-yourself focal point features colorful artwork, including an old map mounted to a stretched canvas.
A classic four-poster, upholstered bench, and feminine florals capture the stately early-1900s origins of this bedroom, while mixing up hues and patterns in easy-to-change-out throw pillows freshens up the space for today.
A neutral palette lets pattern take the visual lead in this soothing bedroom retreat. Khaki undertones help floral, stripes, and plaid harmonize in the bedding and window treatments without overpowering the space.
Preserving an Original
Weathered-wood ceiling beams and a softly worn rug capture the salvaged character of this vintage home. When new additions were needed, such as storage bookshelves, they were designed and finished to look like had always been there.
Pocket doors outfitted with frosted glass offer privacy without wasting space between this master bedroom and bath. A stained-glass window mounted as a transom adds a pretty touch that also lets in natural light from the bedroom's plentiful windows.
Pretty furnishings and neutral bedding purposefully take a backseat to the luxurious architecture of this Spanish Revival-inspired bedroom.
Focused on the View
The most important visual element in this master bedroom is the ocean view, so a soft, neutral palette makes just the right subtle statement inside. The soothing scheme and elegant, while worn, furniture is also true to the decorating style of the home's Cape Cod location.
Impact with Texture
Texture -- a linen-upholstered headboard, soft velvet coverlet and pillows, thick wool rug, and woven leather bench -- makes the quiet color palette of this bedroom interesting and sophisticated.
Taste of the Tropics
From the wicker bed frame and tropical blades of the ceiling fan to the botanical prints on the wall, organic textures and light colors lend a sense of spa-like serenity to this bedroom.
The Art of Modernism
Grounded by spectacular works of art prominently arranged above the bed, this bedroom is carefully and symmetrically composed to achieve a crisp, clean-lined look.
While simple decor and a monochromatic color scheme offer a hint of contemporary style, this bedroom earns its soft and pretty elegance from luxurious textiles, including silk draperies and carpet, a wool upholstered bed, and leather bench.
