Bedroom Inspiration

Your bedroom should provide a refuge from the outside world.  This is an intimate space that doesn’t have to please anyone but you.  How great is that?  Designing this room is an opportunity to let your dreams take flight.  Your master bedroom should, above all, be comfortable and enveloping, providing not only a place to sleep soundly but to read, relax, converse and retreat from the cares of the day.  Guest bedrooms can take their cue from these same principals… giving your guests their own little refuge, however temporary, while visiting your home and enjoying your hospitality.

Antiqued mirrored nightstands add to the glamour and the softly ruffled French linens bring a feminine touch. Silk draperies lend to the luminosity of the space.

Deep aubergine walls set the tone for plenty of drama in this romantic master bedroom. The bed, from Ethan Allen, is in a shimmering warm pewter finish with a leather upholstered footboard and fabric headboard. The metallic ceiling provides a warm glow, illuminated by the charcoal crystal chandelier from RH.

A pair of generously proportioned bergere chairs from Ethan Allen provide a super comfortable seating area for morning coffee and correspondence or late-night scotch and conversation.

The adjoining niche is ideal for a writing desk and bar cart.

The leather-topped French writing desk is vintage, as is the Italian wedding chair.

A simple monochromatic color scheme gives this guest bedroom a wonderfully elegant charm.
