This ballerina bedroom is a little girl's dream. Featuring victorian furniture and opulent finishes, this bedroom is made grand with oversize wood trim, curtains, and chandeliers. The seat at the dressing table is wrapped in tulle and a chaise lounge for relaxing is nearby.
The well-lit bedroom turned out to be the perfect space for Paloma Contrera’s Spring Awakening study. Wallpapered panels (by deGournay) and luxe silk curtains give the space a vibrant, aesthetic.
“The room is a study in color used in a very mindful way, and showcases my signature modern-meets-traditional style,” explains Paloma.
Scandinavian design features neutral colors and plenty of natural light like in this bedroom. Niki Brantmark, author of The Scandinavian Home, says, "Placing your furniture to get the most natural light and using curtains that allow the light to filter through will leave your home feeling more cozy and comfortable."
This elegant traditional bedroom has a number of beautiful touches, from the coffered ceiling to the Federal-style rug. The walls and fireplace surround are painted in a creamy white as a backdrop to the furnishings. The floral-patterened window treatment and bed canopy add a fun visual element to the space and a tufted chair in front of the fireplace creates a sitting area under a large wrought iron chandelier.
“We filled it with things that made our eyes happy,” says Sonal. That meant navy blue on the walls and the ceiling (Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore) and a glass-bead chandelier from Currey & Company. The various styles of furniture, all neutrals, blend in a cool, relaxed way, including a bed with crisscrossed metal accents and a white upholstered chair (both from RH) plus a whitewashed wood nightstand by Noir.
Pappas Miron Design loved the terrazzo fireplace so much they decided to integrate it into the room’s eclectic decorations. The team pulled inspiration from a mix of periods to create “Palazzo Terazzo,” a luxurious sitting room. A cream boucle on the ’70s styled custom-sofa paired with the tufted antique lounge chair creates a calming and beautiful space.
Here comes the sun: Buttery paint, a gallery of graphic prints, and a Roman shade in a leafy fabric bring cheer to the space. Other upgrades include a gray wood bed from Target, new nightstands, sconces from Rejuvenation, and a sleek ceiling fan from Hunter. “Katie and I never thought to rearrange stuff, we just copied what the sellers had,” says Patrick. “This layout makes our room feel twice as big.”
“I tried to make it feel as daring as the rest of the house, but also like a pretty getaway,” Sonal says. For resort vibes, she chose a wicker headboard from World Market, a basket-y light from Serena & Lily, and grass cloth wallpaper by Phillip Jeffries. “My mom stays here a lot and she always asks, “Are you ever going to get tired of the blue?” Sonal says. “I tell her no! There’s so much to look at in our house, I never get tired of any of it.”
The space across from the bed was the ideal spot for a work zone, outfitted with a desk from Target that’s as fancy as it is functional, thanks to X-shaped designs on the sides. Parked in front is one fab office chair, from Bend Goods. “We share the desk, but it’s so cute that I’m tempted to steal it as a vanity,” says Katie.
