1 LAVISH LINENS
This sweeping sheer linen canopy in Lorraine and Patrick Frey’s home in Provence is a lesson in less is more. (As for the quality, they used only Pierre Frey fabrics, so more is definitely more.)
2 CERTAINLY NO WALLFLOWER
Design your bedroom as this guest bedroom of a home outside New York City designed by Miles Redd and David Kaihoi, you will be given an elegant atmosphere. The beauty of this bedroom is represented by decorations, especially the distribution of wallpaper. Bold pattern floral look like the artwork on the walls but still accentuates the furnishings around.
3 REDEFINE AND REUSE
Frank Frances Studio
Carved Moroccan doors are used as a wooden backdrop in the bedroom of this Brooklyn brownstone by Ishka Designs. Now, the bedroom looks both intimate and impressive.
4 GO THE DISTANCE
Stephen Kent Johnson
Extending the headboard and painting it the same color as the sheet is the way that design firm Ashe Leandro creates prominence in this Upper East Side home. That brings an elegant and cohesive look to the bedroom.
5 SUBTLE DECADENCE
Stephen Kent Johnson
Gabriel Hendifar, artistic director and CEO of the design studio Apparatus, covered the walls of his Manhattan bedroom with rich, velvet-like fabric. This is enough to create a chic space yet cozy. A mirror wall is installed opposite the bed to make the bedroom look larger.
6 PATTERN PLAY
By draping a macramé canopy over baby-blue patterned wallpaper in the primary bedroom of his vacation home off the Atlantic coast of France, Deniot creates a playful assemblage. The combination of blue and white is really suitable for a vacation atmosphere.
7 A GLEAMING GOODNIGHT
A duotone brown-and-yellow color scheme is truly effective when creating a cozy space for the bedroom. This amazing result is made by Paolo Castellarin and Didier Bonnin. However, these lacquered walls are not for the faint of hearts.
8 THINK BIG
Rather than leave the bed to rely on a feature wall, designer Lorenzo Castillo placed the bed far from the wall space enough to put a folding screen upholstered in royal blue velvet as wall decor. The blue appearing on both the bedding and the wooden beams overhead stands out against the stark white walls.
9 SHELF TIME
A shelf displaying artwork is kept low to add a drama wallpaper without detracting from the busy nightstand area. Jessica Davis – the designer of this bedroom deftly arranged the artwork base on seasonal. That makes for a fun arrangement that catches your eye.
10 MINIMAL MODE
With a floating bed upholstered in blue velvet, you are still able to decorate it with artwork like this bedroom. Mara Brock Akil and Salim Akil hang a few simple pieces of artwork in various sizes behind the bed. Remember to opt for suitable colors and styles for both bed and artwork.
11 BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL

Designer Kimille Taylor did well at her job when creating a harmonious combination of shades of color and contrast. Light lavender of wall and bedding made for a perfect contrast with the dark-toned photograph by Marsha Lebedev Bernstein.
