A burlap canopy and bed hanging evokes casual countryside style and enhances a new four-poster bed. Susan Sully, author of “Past Present: Living with Heirlooms and Antiques,” which features the home of architect Norman Askins, says accessories like the brass candlestick and hurricane lamp are inexpensive and intensify the style of the room.
The geometric headboard above the bed is a custom walnut bed and headboard created by Susan Jamieson of Bridget Beari Designs using custom paint colors named for dogs (proceeds go to rescue groups). Brass lamps rest on black nightstands and a chunky knit gray throw is at the foot of the bed. The room was designed by Jamieson for a Southeastern Designer Showhouse in Atlanta.

When couples combine furniture, sometimes major pieces, like a bed, need to be freshened up. Atlantan Amanda Macy Hall, who blogs about home decor and DIY projects, transformed a queen cherry sleigh bed that belonged to her husband, Josh, with upholstery. She used a cheap drop cloth and a roll of brass decorative nails. “I love the look of the drop-cloth, a beautiful natural color with subtle texture, and the nailheads bring the added style that helps to tie it to the rest of our room.”
In the master bedroom, designers brought in furniture with bold fabrics and stains to that the space would feel luxurious and stunning. For example, the headboard of the bed and the dark stain on the nightstands and the frame of the mirror create a luscious feeling in the design.
To make the large space feel more cozy and intimate, designers brought in a large, padded headboard in navy blue leather. To accent this new piece, turquoise lamps were added to the nightstand on either side of the bed-the jewel tones of the accents and the bed frame creating a nice contrast between themselves and the gray walls.
