For a touch of drama, this homeowner added black in various fabrics as well as in the plates and frames on the walls. Bold chevron stripes on the pillows mixed with a classic duvet pattern brings contemporary elements to the mix.
The highlight of this room is the stenciled accent wall behind the bed. The bright persimmon-and-white duvet is grounded with
a soft blue coverlet. The squared-off headboard’s casual slipcover, made with a soft blue linen, can be removed and tossed
in the laundry.
In keeping with the calming color scheme, an antique shopkeeper's cabinet with glass-front drawers was painted white and serves as an interesting dresser. A flea market painting of roses and an array of old perfume bottles complete the romantic vignette on the dresser. The whimsical chandelier over the bed complements the room's style. A curtained cased opening separates the master bedroom from the family room.

are made from reclaimed wood, but the majority is from nearby furniture companies committed to manufacturing in environmentally
sensitive ways. For flooring, a fast-growing yet durable bamboo with a dark stain was chosen to keep the room from looking
Stylishly simplified, the bedroom is as easy on the eyes as it is on the body. A modern four-poster bed bridges past and present and gives the otherwise contemporary space a dash of Southern romanticism. A quilted silk duvet in a soft shade of gray, navy pillows, and an antique needlepoint lumbar pillow in navy and white highlight the bed. A fresh coat of white paint freshens the room without making it too bright to be relaxing. Contemporary patterned fabric panels draw the eye to the windows and to the view beyond.
The pattern on the upholstered headboard served as an inspiration for the color scheme in this room, and a unique chandelier
lends an air of casual elegance to the space.

Items such as these are good for your home’s indoor air quality because they have been off-gassing for a while.

The four-poster bed features spiral-turned twists, also called barley twists, a design commonly found in 17th-century manor houses. The generous folds of the attached bed skirt maximize the regal height of the four-poster. Black and white, on fabrics and lamps, add graphic punch to the green scheme.
The very strong structural lines of this bed are complemented by the geometric pattern found on the bed linens.
Keeping the basics white gives a clean, versatile look. Hanging a mirror above the headboard reflects light and creates a focal point.
Brown and blue are paired in the master suite, keeping the room restful yet crisp. The floral curtains add a feminine touch, while the bed linens take a masculine turn with a bold monogram that complements the dark wood tones found in the furniture.
Though this room is small in square footage, the decorative impact is big. Carved wood birds perch on the tall, curvy headboard.

This master bedroom displays a more-is-more approach. Bravo to the beautiful screen above the headboard and the vaulted ceiling with its wood beams saved from an old barn. But the standing ovation goes to the abundant use of fabric. A green floral material wraps the walls like the woods outside and continues onto the bed, a bench, and the curtains. Accents such as the antique antlers, prints, and frames give the room even more mountain grandeur.
