After a makeover by Terracotta Design Build, the “room with a bed in it” is transformed into a neutral retreat that’s far from boring. “If your bedroom looks like a dorm room, the first thing you have to do is add a headboard, and it will be immediately grown up,” says Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson, architect and designer with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta. Keeping the walls and furniture neutral allows you to infuse color with pillows and lamps, which can be changed out more affordably.
