This light and bright French country bedroom features a funky brass chandelier that adds a contemporary touch to the space. Natural wood planks cover the ceiling, while blue and white linens and a pintucked upholstered headboard decorate the bed. An orange desk adds a vibrant pop of color.
West Elm side tables and a tufted headboard from Mitchell Gold create a soothing, neutral bedroom. The custom blackout shades ensure a restful sleep, no matter what time of day, while brass sconces offer light day or night.
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.
Gold is a regal choice that demands attention in this once-overlooked guest bedroom. Glass and antique brass side tables give the room a more modern look, and are topped with lamps from a discount home store selected by Atlanta designer Jennifer Foster. A streamlined slipcovered headboard offers flexibility for future makeovers.
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.
This handsome boy's bedroom, one of two in the home, features a West Elm reclaimed wood headboard and bed alongside a pair of gray lacquer and brass detailed nightstands and a brass chandelier. Tones of blue and gray are used throughout the room: in the striped area rug by Jaipur, patterned bedding and window shades.
This polished master bedroom maintains its simple elegance with strong furnishings and accessories. The king-sized bed, with its uncomplicated bed linens and headboard, is a focal point that's softened by the brass chandelier and cotton draperies. The brown velvet tufted pillows that rest on the headboard also moderate the tone.
A vintage brass chandelier and light gold headboard soften the graphic wallpaper in this sophisticated bedroom. The designer kept everything else white, including the rest of the walls, so the space feels light and relaxing.
The angles of the headboard play off the grand architectural details found throughout the home and draw the eye up to the musical focal point of the room: a trio of guitars. Matching midcentury modern brass lamps add task lighting and a metallic sparkle to this soothing space.
This master bedroom benefits from hand-painted blue and white ombré walls features an ethereal design scheme, including chic, Bohemian features like the floral curtains and brass pendant lights. Vintage mirrors hang above the neutral tufted headboard, while two plush orange upholstered ottomans sit at the foot of the bed.
This eclectic bedroom features a white upholstered bed with a tufted headboard and a gray and white wallpaper accent wall. A brass chest and faux fur rug sit at the foot of the bed, while gold oval mirrors are positioned on either side. Pink pillows add a pop of color and black hardwood floors provide a finishing touch.
The bedside cabinets and master bed are custom pieces designed by Habachy Designs. The bed has a sophisticated, channeled headboard with wood trim. Even in a neutral and white space, warmth was created through the mixture of old and new. There is a big mix of vintage pieces with new designs. The vintage desk chair is brass and zebra hide and phenomenally crafted with its skinny, curved and tapered legs.
