It can often be the forgotten room in your home because no one else sees it — but it should be the exact opposite, because it’s the one space where you get to recharge. So many different styles, there’s an idea for everyone here.
LADYLIKE AND LUXE
For a girl’s bedroom, designer Bailey McCarthy conjures a “full-on princess fantasy” with a bed canopy in a Designers Guild floral.
Designer Nina Farmer layered shades of gray with autumnal colors in a New England home’s master bedroom. The walls are now sheathed in Phillip Jeffries’s soothing silk-and-abaca wallpaper. The custom Roman shades are in a Holland & Sherry print. A Circa Lighting ceiling fixture casts a warm glow reminiscent of the golden leaves on the river birch trees that line the property.
COZY AND ROMANTIC
In an Atlanta cottage designed by Shon Parker, a vintage Ralph Lauren Home bed rests on an antique Afshar rug; the ceiling is in Benjamin Moore’s Woodlawn Blue.
In a pattern-happy home, Anne Maxwell Foster and Suysel dePedro Cunningham covered the bedroom walls in Sandberg’s Raphaël wallpaper. A Tilton Fenwick for Target headboard is upholstered in the duo’s Jax fabric for Duralee.
Lilac runs throughout a Park Avenue apartment, including the master bedroom’s custom headboard and hummingbird wallpaper by Cole & Son. Linens from Restoration Hardware cover the bed, and the swing-arm light is from Vaughan. Pottery Barn’s Duncan Diamond rug adds a neutral counterpoint to a room filled with pattern and color.
A Massachusetts home acknowledges its coastal setting with just the right amount of pattern. In the compact master bedroom, the window shades are in C&C Milano’s Laveno Barre Mache and the walls are covered in Designers Guild’s Moselle linen.
Architectural flat-file cabinets in his small bedroom give owner John Mayberry a surface for drawing as well as storage for completed works.
