Black furnishings and men's-wear fabrics pop against walls painted a vibrant cranberry shade in the master bedroom of the HGTV Dream Home 2011. Turn-of-the-century walnut and poplar doors were stripped of paint and repurposed as pocket doors for the room.
Sliding distressed wood barn doors divide the master bedroom from the bathroom without taking up valuable floor space. The distressed wood is carried through to the headboard and is paired with contemporary bedding to create an industrial-chic look.
An antique side table, a brass swing arm floor lamp and a deep rose velvet bergère chair are brightened by white tulips set in a clear glass vase. Balcony french doors allow natural light to brighten the room, framed by heavy neutral curtains.
This contemporary bedroom features a sliding glass wall that opens the room completely to the pool and courtyard beyond. The bedroom and bathroom are integrated, and the all-glass shower helps visually expand the space. A brick wall surrounds the property, providing privacy.
An exposed brick wall, wooden beams on a pitched ceiling and weathered French doors all add rustic character to this master bedroom. Windows follow the shape of the wall, drawing attention to the room's height.
A private patio can extend the square footage of a bedroom. A wall of windows and French doors create plenty of natural light, and a private outdoor oasis is the perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee.
Brown curtains effectively block out sunlight and provide privacy while sleeping and anchor the space during the day. French doors lead out to the serene garden and backyard. Fluffy white bedding makes for a calming, inviting escape.
The castle's third floor was originally dedicated to the servants' quarters. Now, it's home to multiple bedrooms and bathrooms and two kitchens. The bedrooms often have access to balconies and of course, yummy landscape views.
This master bedroom expertly employs French Country accents to soften the heavier wood trim of the ceiling and windows. Identical mirrors, ornate lamps and distressed nightstands balance the queen bed on either side, while the floor-length windows elongate and brighten the overall space.
To give the master bedroom a sense of indoor outdoor living, architects installed double doors that open out onto a patio. The ceiling is vaulted and paneled in pale gray plank boards, enhancing the light-filled, open mood.
