Shades of brown and cream are layered in the decor of this contemporary bedroom making a serene, elegant setting. Instead of rugs or carpeting, the designers chose a dark brown wood floor, a crisp contrast to the white bed and nightstands.
This neutral, traditional bedroom is the picture of tranquility, with its soft painted furniture and waterfront view. A room-size carpet provides softness underfoot, while a fireplace adds warmth and coziness to the space. Neutral walls and trim run throughout the Cape Cod-style home, which rests on Chapoquoit Island in West Falmouth, Massachusetts.
The neutral toned bedroom in this Craftsman style home is designed with relaxation in mind. Cream colored carpeting lines the floors with wooden baseboards and accents, plus large exposed beams overhead. The bedroom also features wooden French doors that open directly to the water view.
The polka-dotted bedding and matching curtains draw the eye up, opening the middle of the room. A plaid dust ruffle and brown floral carpet complement the white vintage desk for a harmonious blend of shabby chic style.
A chocolate accent wall behind the bed and a ceiling border match the chocolate comforter, pillows and dark wooden chest of drawers. Tan walls and carpet match the neutral curtains and decorative, patterned pillows.
Neutral, solid tones mute the patterned carpet and blend it beautifully into the room. A large tufted headboard stretches up from layers of pillows feature two navy pillows complimenting the blue tone in the carpet. An upholstered bench at the foot of the bed matches the armchair and ottoman positioned in the natural light of the window trio. A spherical chandelier combines traditional style with contemporary intrigue.
A trio of windows are treated with long neutral curtains to control the natural light let into this cozy bedroom.

In the last of the home's expansive bedrooms, designers made functional use of the space by creating a sleeping space, defined by a neutral, shag carpet, a sitting area that faces the beautiful view of New York City and a work space with a simple, modern desk.
Asian accents and contemporary fixtures combine with transitional case pieces in this restful master retreat. Sliding shoji screen doors lead to a spacious marble bathroom. The walls, carpet and bedding are neutral, enhancing the space's calm, spa-like feel.
A slatted wood bed is flanked by metal nightstands and traditional sconces. Exposed wood beams bring a rustic quality to the space, which is grounded by plush carpeting. "Birds on a Wire" art by Corinne Adams adds bright color to the mostly neutral space.
Prior to the makeover, this master bedroom was in contractor-grade condition, from its neutral carpet to the beige paint on its walls. Taking inspiration from its colorful abstract art, the room received a new identity with shades of blue accented with fire-engine red. The paper lantern light fixtures add lightness to this otherwise masculine bedroom.
This design plays with dark, moody colors and lots of texture. The look is kept simple by keeping the pallet neutral with just a pop of color in the red carpet. A sculptural gold mirror over the bed adds a dash of drama and acts as a sort of foal point in the room. Graphic wallpaper resembles dripping paint creating a beautiful accent wall behind the bed and nightstands and leaves the window wall looking bright and fresh.
Transforming this bedroom from a space for a little girl to a professional young woman was easy with sleek wood dressers and a stylish wingback chair. Neutral walls and carpet combine with the grass blackout window shades to create a calm space to unwind.

When transforming a spare bedroom into a glamorous dressing room, designer Nicole Norris, ASID, NCIDQ, turned the double-door reach-in closet into a custom-designed shoe display alcove with 1/2" thick glass shelves. Luxurious patterned carpeting, gold shimmering wallpaper and neutral furnishings balance out the bright pink shelving. Details such as a gilded tri-fold mirror and a creamy hair-on-hide chair add a touch of glamour to the space. Since the room was so large, several ready-made furniture pieces were added in addition to the custom shelving.
