One of two bedrooms located on the first floor of this beautiful waterfront escape, this inviting bedroom has a classic panel bed with plush bedding that complements the soft and sophisticated lavender walls.
The color of royalty flies in the face of the all-too-typical white-wall approach in a bedroom. Instead of patterned drapes and beige carpeting or an area rug, turn to the walls and bed to highlight your love of color. Combining dark and light purples keeps this space fresh and fun.
Pale lavender walls give old fashioned charm to this bedroom, enhanced by the bed's colorful quilt. Light wood is an uplifting choice for the dresser and nightstand and underfoot, a sheepskin rug is a welcome treat for bare feet.
A distressed country-style dresser provides storage and serves as a nightstand at HGTV Dream Home 2010. Shams and throw pillows in vibrant colors and patterns give the traditional pencil-post beds a modern makeover.
To make what was a juvenile, childish girl's room more appropriate for a growing tween, its walls were painted a deep shade of violet, album cover-inspired art was hung to create a focal point, vintage lighting was installed on the ceilings and the walls, and women's fashion fabrics were used in upholstered accents. Now the designer-caliber room is as appealing to the tween herself as it is to her young parents.
The canopy above the bed embraces the odd angles of ceiling in this dreamy girl's bedroom. Fanciful wallpaper creates a space where imagination and playfulness is encouraged. A mix of different lilacs and purples creates interest as well as a cohesive design.
The bed isn’t the only place for relaxing in this bedroom. A chaise lounge in the bedroom promises many hours of comfort, staring lazily out the window at the unique ironwork that Malene designed herself. The lounge is topped with a cushion from a favorite local store in the area, Peace and Riot.
According to Genevieve Gorder, this bedroom needs some serious help. "A white upholstered hollow-core door as a headboard and layers of white bedding would have added comfort and a sense of dreamy luxury," says Candice. "Acoustical ceiling tiles wrapped in pink cotton to fill the area above the desk would have been a more striking and practical treatment."
