Designer Erinn Valencich injects a big dose of style with a one-of-a-kind headboard she designed. "Having a custom headboard made is often cheaper than purchasing one readymade," Erinn says. She also designed the bedding based on a high-end pattern her client fell in love with. She says, "The fabric was very expensive, so I used just a few yards of it on the duvet and shams. There are always ways to get creative with fabric."
The mirrored nightstand and luxurious tapestry headboard give off a glamorous sparkle in this bedroom designed by Tina Mellino, but they belie a family-friendly functionality. "Everything in this room is durable," Tina says, "because I designed it as an adult guest suite where the client's grandchildren could also come to play video games. The duvet cover, for example, is a soft machine-washable linen." The wall behind the bed features a custom-mixed coppery paint treatment from Variance that's applied with a trowel and lightly buffed. "It creates a wonderful soft texture that reflects light differently at different times of day," Tina says.
Using a large taupe damask wallpaper keeps this second floor master bedroom feeling fresh and updated but still traditional. Touches of raspberry pink bring a little femininity to the room while a seating area provides a place to relax. Mixing a custom skirt, duvet and shams with a new headboard and antique desk, chair and lamp creates a timeless element of style.
Exposed beams and reclaimed wood furniture give this transitional bedroom a calming and earthy atmosphere. A window seat filled with pillows is flanked by built-in bookshelves. Patterned blue and cream wallpaper create a custom accent wall behind the bed.
This beautiful four poster bed features custom cotton sateen duvet and shams designed by Vern Yip, and the walls are hand painted by artist Michael Boudreault. Vintage Baker dressers supply 12 drawers, providing plenty of storage.
A color scheme of blue, emerald green, white and khaki serves as a springboard for a preppy, sophisticated style. An embroidered duvet and pillow shams are a beautiful detail against the custom headboard by Bassett.
