The most classic bedroom foldout piece of furniture, of course, is the Murphy bed. This is a terrific option for an alcove in a studio apartment or a guest bedroom that pulls double duty as a den or home office. It can even be useful if you simply have a small bedroom without sufficient functional space for storage furniture as well as a bed. Today’s Murphy beds are well-designed, comfortable and often incorporate other design features such as shelving or desks.
When decorating a master bedroom, we tend to lean towards a calming color palette and sculptural light fixtures. We also like to personalize the space with bedding. In this Upper East Side master bedroom in New York City, we created a dusty lavender color scheme with an accent of hand-embroidered wallpaper. The bedside pendants are like the jewelry and the metal nicely contrasts with the delicate flowers. The bedside tables personalize the space—vintage nesting tables for her and a Frampton Co table with storage for him.
