If you’re outfitting a space that’s small or has awkward design features, custom-made furnishings may be the best option. Case in point: this elegant guest room. “The bed was designed for a room that had door locations that inhibited twin beds from being placed side by side as they typically are,” explains designer Chandos Dodson Epley. “We went with the corner-style headboard to provide more floor space and a walkway in the bedroom. It also created a cozy nook for the clients’ two young granddaughters.”
Taupe and gunmetal are two new neutrals that have great versatility for use in a wide variety of rooms. Here, the two colors were used to add horizontal stripes to a master bedroom lacking in architectural interest. A shag area rug and shag upholstered cube stools add soft texture to the room while a natural wood bed frame and headboard add a touch of craftsman influence.
Beloved by designers worldwide for its irreverence, blush is a muted shade of pink that works well with a wide array of other colors. The soft wall color is a perfect backdrop for the bold blue headboard, bed linens and curtains. White details in the decor compliment the pink tone and grab the natural lighting for a bright finish.
A bold orange accent wall creates a bright backdrop for the navy details in this boy's bedroom design. Thick navy and white stripes on the comforter match the striped curtains and upholstered navy headboard with small nailhead trim. Orange pillows and upholstered cube stools tie the accent wall into the design.
Split walls with pastel yellow on top and white on the bottom set a bright backdrop for this coastal bedroom. A wicker bed frame and headboard are topped with a plush, striped comforter and a navy polka dot pillow for accent. Vibrant turquoise bedside tables add an extra pop of color and match the patterned curtain.
The idea for this funky wall was a collaborative effort from the HGTV Smart Home 2014 design team. "We wanted to really go crazy behind the headboard," says interior designer Linda Woodrum. Painting boards in complementary hues highlights the bed and creates an eye-catching focal point.
Multicolored honeycomb-patterned wallpaper and green-and-white striped bedding give a geometric feel to this cheerful bedroom space. A collection of rainbow-hued accent pillows merrily adds to the mix.
