This transitional bedroom features a black metal bed frame, gray and white bed linens, and gray throw pillows. A white globe chandelier hangs above, while a black wood nightstand is positioned on either side. A wood table lamp, flowers and stack of green books sit atop each nightstand.
A color palette of blacks, browns and neutrals ensures a calm, relaxed feel in this master bedroom. Midcentury modern furniture pieces give the room eye-catching style, and damask curtains add an unexpected touch of poise. A furry area rug adds texture underfoot, while a glass orb chandelier adds whimsy overhead.
The owner of this bedroom wanted a tv; black wallpaper helps camouflage it. The wallpaper seams turned out to look awkward, so to hide them, the designer cleverly added thin, black molding to give the walls a paneled look.
The niche between the two bookshelves is the perfect spot for the crib; in later years, a headboard will tuck neatly up against the wall. The gold polka dots on the back wall are brought out by the spherical gold pendants in the center of the room.
Toddler-size bunk beds are an excellent space-saving furniture option for children under the age of seven. Thinner and less wide than twin-size beds, toddler-size beds use up less space, thus allowing extra chairs or tables to fit into the room.
In the bedroom, the black and white palette of the living room is flipped on its head with moody black walls. The color is Wrought Iron, from the AphroChic Brooklyn In Color paint collection. Bright pops of color from a decorative gallery wall of baskets and an antique Persian rug break up the dark colors in the room.
You don't need to invest in a fancy and expensive rug to get a polished look — think outside the box. Buy a few mats and tape them together to form one larger rug. Choosing ones with variations and multiple colors makes it easy to hide any seams.
Textile designer, Khristian A. Howell, says, "Put your feet first. A dramatic and easy way to change things up in a room is by bringing in a great rug. Sheepskin rugs are so wonderful for the winter months. They feel wonderful under foot, and bring lots of warmth into the room, while keeping a light airy feeling."
To add some fun, bold color to the master bedroom, designers brought in a piece of artwork that was created with drippings from melted crayons. They hung this unique piece above a vintage, 1930s black dresser with copper pulls. Both of these pieces pop against the jet black walls of the master bedroom.
A dramatic and sophisticated bedroom with everything from moody black paint on the walls, bold floral wallpaper on the ceiling and a dramatic chandelier to help make this newly teenage girl's bedroom dreams come true.
