This is one of my all time favorite bedroom designs!
Details cover every inch of this room, from the amazing wallpaper and silver leafed ceiling to the built-in bookcases and textured rug.
I love the cool grey/blue mixed with warm white and rich wood tones.
When decorating a space, bedroom or otherwise, the end result will always be fabulous when you incorporate different finishes (painted wood, stained wood, metal, ceramic, crystal).
The darker tone headboard creates a strong focal point within the room and its shape and texture really stand out.
This bedroom is perfect in every sense…the layout, the accessorizing, the colors and the mood it creates.
This is a lovely retreat!

Over the years, I’ve been asked on many occasions to explain what it takes to create a bed ensemble that is stylized, sophisticated and beautiful.
A bed, just like any other area of your home should have a design point-of-view and should make a statement.
Bedding can be simple….
or, layered and more detailed.
Here’s what I think it takes to pull together the perfect bedding look:
- Mix and match Sheets and Pillow Cases–I love the look of different fitted and flat sheets combined together. You could combine a pattern and solid or two different solid colors together. And, a patterned pillowcase thrown into the mix will add instant style. Rule of thumb: keep the darker sheet as the fitted sheet so the heaviest color is closer to the floor.
Duvet or Comforter–To get the layered look, incorporating a duvet or comforter is key. Personally, I like this layer folded back at the foot of the bed versus covering the entire bed, especially when the pieces is an all over pattern or highly textured.
Target sells a great diamond quilted bedspread like the one in the photo below, available in a range of colors.
This is the mix of pillows I use on my bed. The yellow and grey pillow and the yellow rosette pillow are from Target. I made the polka dot pillow and the black and white lattice pillowcases.
A Bedskirt (optional)–depending on the style of your bed, a bedskirt can be used to add another layer to your bedding. There are different styles of bedskirts, tailored, pleated and ruffled but whatever style you choose, make sure the skirt touches the floor. And, don’t forget that you can add a little detail to solid bedskirts with a ribbon trim or contrasting fabric border.
So there you have it, a few tips on creating a luxurious and beautiful bed ensemble!
