Evoking the clear summer sky and calm waters, the color blue is a perennial favorite, especially in bedrooms, where it creates the feel of a true sanctuary. The custom blue wall finish in this sophisticated waterfront bedroom nods to sea and sky but also embraces the comfortable feel of chambray, proving that elegance and ease do mix. Traditional damask and check prints bring traditional beauty, but they're used in moderation with plenty of solids—in both blue and white—to keep a calm, contemporary mood. Brass accents are the perfect complement to the blue palette.
Do you ever notice you’re more drawn to rooms decorated with plants? Fresh florals have always made fabulous decor accents, but they’re also known for improving your home’s air quality, as well as being mood boosters. By adding plant life to your bedroom, you’ll find it becomes a more livable place that you’ll both want to spend more time in, too.
Painted walls are a practical choice at this stage of the game. Paint has a fresh contemporary feeling, and, better yet, it's the least expensive, fastest way to make a big change in a room. You'll want to tell your child that paint looks a lot darker and more vivid on four walls than in a tiny paint chip and that professional designers usually advocate choosing a color two or three steps lighter than the color you like best on the paint chip. That said, buy the smallest container you can of several colors in the running, and have your child paint an area about three feet square on one wall with each of the colors. Let your child choose the hue that looks best. (One big exception to starting with the paint color is if your child has already picked out a fabric. Then, you'll probably want to suggest paint to coordinate with the lightest color in the fabric.)
In the master bedroom, gray damask linens add subtle color and pattern to the iron-and-brass bed. To coordinate, draperies made of silver-and-gray fabric were lined in white. Keeping the basics white gives a clean, versatile look. Hanging a mirror above the headboard reflects light and creates a focal point.
