While lying in bed, the entire winter-inspired bedroom envelops its overnight guests with subtle textures and a tight palette of coordinating colors. An old dresser picked up at a flea market for $100 was given a wintry update with a glossy sprayed finish. When choosing the proper blue for the space, a washed-out blue-gray was ideal since it added a wintry look without overpowering the room.

From an icy blue and white color palette to touches of silver and rich, menswear-inspired fabrics, see how a lackluster bedroom gets a winter-inspired makeover full of the season's hottest trends. In this design from Brian Patrick Flynn, a collection of framed artwork and photography is simply leaned against the wall above the entry’s console table. A small table lamp made of mercury glass helps reflect the light it emits once switched on at night. A mirrored console table serves as the base for this lovely white and silver vignette, featuring silver frames, white hydrangeas, silver bird accessories and a white faux deer head.
Sometimes a sense of humor in an otherwise tailored space can create a not-so-serious feeling. While Chris' bedroom walls are covered in a pinstripe wool menswear suit fabric, the juxtaposition of a white resin moose head against the tailored walls creates a light-hearted element of surprise. Since the wall application set Chris back approximately $1300, he saved on furniture by choosing a vintage wood dresser he scored for $125 at a flea market. Since dark-colored accessories could easily get lost in the navy blue tone of the pinstriped wall covering, bulky ultra-white vases were grouped together to create a strong contrast.
For a menswear touch, the bergère chairs were reupholstered in peacock-blue tweed. Often used for men's coats and pants, tweed is a classic fabric that can introduce tailored, well-structured style to a room.
For a subtle, menswear-inspired touch, Chris had the walls of his master bedroom covered in pinstripe fabric.
