These ideas from our first-ever renovation of a historic home offer inspiration for floors, ceilings, and everything else—including the kitchen sink!
Make a statement.
In a large master bedroom, choose a fully upholstered headboard and footboard to anchor the room.
Upgrade your linens.
Punchy poppy-hued stripes add unexpected color to an otherwise neutral room.
Mix, don't match.
Break up symmetry with bedside tables of the same height but different materials. A skirted table with tailored box pleats adds pattern.
Hang a grouping tightly to make it read as one element instead of a lot of different items.
