A good night's sleep goes a long way to making you feel like a brand new person. Not only does rest rejuvenate and repair your body, it does the same for your mind. There's a reason you hear, "sleep on it," whenever you're trying to solve a problem. To ensure you get your best night's sleep, start by setting your thermostat around 67 degrees. You want your space to be cool, but not cold. And then, create a bedroom haven that sends you straight to your dreams by combining the comfiest bedding, soothing hues and soft, ambient lighting.
Designer Claire Paquin created a place of quiet repose when designing this beautiful transitional bedroom in shades of white and gray. Especially stunning is the patterned Roman shade that creatively frames the bed and headboard as a work of art. The look here is minimal, yet its simplicity makes a stunning statement.
Natural light is lovely for creating a warm, inviting environment, but when you're ready for some shut-eye, those rays need to be controlled, says Flanigan. In addition to framing window openings with color and texture, drapery allows you to have direct control over your lighting experience. Invest in high-quality drapery and line your panels with blackout material. This ensures you get sleep at any hour of the day while also protecting your furniture, rugs and art from damaging UV rays.
This bedroom positively glows with style. The mantel is a great area for display, featuring a variety of the girls’ favorite accessories and even a few plants beneath a bright, neon sign, spelling out the words, Say What! Most importantly, the room showcases the girls’ talents with their art and gymnastics medals on display, proof that you can highlight children's accomplishments and collections without sacrificing style.
Bedding in the home’s signature black and white color palette juxtaposes stripes and polka-dots for a very modern mix of patterns. Pops of orange throughout the room liven up the space while giving it a warm yet youthful feel. Even more color finds it way in through the metallic side table and lamp, while leopard-patterned pillows on both beds tie the colors and patterns together.
The girls’ room is an excellent example of how to design a kid’s room with a sense of style. When designing a room for kids there’s a lot to be said for keeping the overall aesthetic aligned with the rest of the home. Instead of decorating with bright pastel colors and more traditional "kid's colors" that don’t reflect their personal style, Julio and Kenza have blended their grownup black and white color palette with fun elements like the heart polka dots on the sheets, typographic art and pops of orange in this kid-friendly space.
The Leitao master bedroom is a beautiful, minimalist retreat. Black walls are on-trend, and envelope the space, creating a cozy vibe. The dark walls in Kenza and Julio’s room are also a great backdrop and visual contrast for the art and architecture. Above the bed, another image by French photographer Patrick Demarchelier, of dancers from Batotu Yetu is is the perfect artistic touch.
The statement piece in the bedroom is the custom headboard with arched design, echoing the new archways incorporated into the home's layout. The headboard was designed by Joanna Gaines and fashioned by carpenter and furniture artisan Clint Harp. The shiplap on the ceiling and walls is original to the house and was exposed when old drywall was removed.
The master bedroom is given a fresh and classic look as well, with the old blue wall-to-wall carpet removed, revealing hardwood floors, and the room furnished with period-appropriate furniture and accessories.
In this master bedroom, a 19th-century French kitchen table becomes a desk by adding a midcentury club chair. The oversized floor lamp and custom daybed create an inviting space, while the natural wool area rug warms the room.
The decor in the master bedroom was selected to create a peaceful retreat that highlights the grand ocean views. Cooler tones contribute to the sense of serenity; a silk lilac wallcovering has a faint iridescent effect that changes with the natural light.
In the master bedroom, the homeowners wanted a minimalist design that would not distract them from sleep, so designers brought in a modern, bleached wood bed frame that could be outfitted with curtains to help block light and two matching nightstands. The bed is outfitted with clean, white linens and just enough pillows to make the space feel comfortable and homey.
Huge windows with accordion blinds allow for full control of the natural light into this transitional bedroom. A dark orange accent wall adds depth to the design without being overly bright. A large tufted headboard folds at the corners to fully enclose the bed space. Yellow accents on the bed add the perfect touch of sunny color.
A coral and white striped painted ceiling in this bedroom is accented by coral bedding, which includes a throw and two pillows. Green and white decor, including curtains, pillows and a padded headboard complement the chic space.
