To give this bedroom a feel of its own, the designer paired the wall's gentle taupe with peacock blue accents. Over the windows, brass curtain rods make the ceiling feel higher and are a pretty pop of gold to tie in with the pendants over the nightstands.
All it takes to create an outdoor getaway is a comfortable chair or two. Here, designer Erin Benedict chose a pair of Adirondack chairs softened by large cushy pillows. And, note the pulled-back curtain to one side: If you have a place to hang a curtain rod or wire, an outdoor curtain adds softness and privacy. “Elegant black and gold striped drapes perfectly frame the Adirondack chairs, adding a contemporary element while complementing the timeless architectural details of the early 1920s structure,” Benedict says.
