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.
Located just off the home gym, the bright and happy terrace suite bedroom gets incredible light and has floor-to-ceiling, high-gloss white shiplap walls that fit the home's coastal flavor. A bright coral upholstered low-slung platform bed with curved headboard and sleek frame adds a pop of color to the space.
Unique was what the homeowner was looking for in the design of her apartment, so designers created a headboard out of rare Oriental panels. Then, they pulled the cherry hues out of the frame with the bold, red details on and around the bed, like the lamp shades and the pillows.
This master bedroom is imbued with a warm ambiance thanks to an orange and gold color scheme. The room's primary colors are carried through in the bedding, window treatments, artwork and armchair. The bed has a silk-upholstered headboard with a silver-leaf frame, while a nearby built-in provides ample storage space.
In this traditional green bedroom, a table lamp is positioned on a small marble table, next to which is a padded chair. The room also features an oversized wood bed with an ornately-carved headboard. Six gold-framed pictures hang on the wall.
Bringing in soft, spa-like colors and great textures, the master bedroom features a custom, chiseled sand stone headboard and antiqued brushed nickel chandeliers. Exposed wooden beams frame the room, warming the soft neutral and green decor colors. Ample pillows cushion the cozy bed and an armchair provides extra seating.
A sophisticated white headboard and large white pillows provide a crisp, clean background for this bright, patterned bedding. Accent pillows in purple and yellow complement the lavender wall color. Gold-framed art and soft lighting accentuate the bold yellow color of the bed linens, tying the space together to create a whimsical retreat.
Cool color and subtle geometry is at play in this sophisticated Colorado bedroom. A tufted velvet headboard gets a modern lift from its sleek wood frame, and a square accent pillow in the same fabric adds a touch of fun. A petite lamp blends with the wall and lets the bed steal all the attention.
Instead of a headboard behind the master bed, a reclaimed wood wall creates the focal point in this rustic, industrial space. In the center of the wall, the artwork, printed from Etsy and outlined in a rustic frame, adds a personalized touch to the couple's master sanctuary and reminds them of their forever love.
Two panels covered in colorful floral fabric create the headboard for this bed. Each panel has a mounted light overhead attached to the frame. Layered pillows continue adding color and pattern. Two green pillows match the green bedspread, followed by two red accent pillows, one with a lobster, and a black and white patterned pillow finishes the bed.
Botanical prints like these are fairly easy to find at thrift and antiques stores, and they can incorporate an old-fashioned luxury into the bedroom. Framed above the bed, they add a sense of nature and calm. “Painting everything ivory and white and the curtains the same color sets off the dark silhouette of the furniture,” says Susan Sully, author of “Past Present: Living with Heirlooms and Antiques." The Jenny Lind Spool bed, an old traveling trunk and shiplapped walls create a cozy feel.
When selecting a raised garden bed, consider the style, such as metal sides or a wood frame (or both), and what you plan to grow. This metal and wood planter, sold by Gardeners' Supply, is 45 inches long and more than 15 inches wide, plus it is more than 15 inches deep to hold flowers, herbs and vegetables.
Two full-size beds with black and white linens and faux fur throws flank a midcentury modern dresser that serves as a nightstand. Ruffled pink curtains frame the windows to give the room an extra feminine touch.
Blondish natural wood furniture, including a dresser and shelving unit, coordinate with a simple bed featuring dark blue linens and a satin blue throw. The walls in the room are made with the same material as the dresser and shelving. A small desk in contrasting dark wood frames the space and offers a work area inside the room.
Two tall mirrors frame the Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams bed in this restful bedroom, resulting in a symmetrical arrangement that adds harmony while reflecting light. The soft palette of blues and grays is serene and peaceful, offering rest from the busy urban landscape outside the windows. Custom draperies bring a punch of pattern to the otherwise neutral space.
In this elegant modern bedroom, a horizontal nook with cool blue lighting stores books and accessories behind the bed. Two beautiful silver nightstands pair with long, pink striped pendant lights, and framed matte art brings in a light shade of red to complement the pink accessories. Faux fur pillows and white linens complete the chic design.
Reinvent empty frames as illuminated sculptures with the addition of colored lights. For indoor use, standard vintage-style lights can be used to wrap wall-hung frames, placed near outlets. To help disguise extension cords, consider grouping several frames vertically, tucking the cord behind each frame, then into outlets near the bottom of the wall. For outdoor use, such as a repurposed wreath alternative placed on a front door, it's best to use battery-operated lights.
