Similarly, window drapery can be hung from the ceiling instead of on the wall just above the window. Hardware for most window treatments is designed to be flexible. So try turning the bracket up and installing it on the ceiling. The length and vertical lines of the drape will make the ceiling feel higher and the room larger.
Look toward living spaces for sleek pieces like media consoles to float on the wall. The streamlined size of such pieces can often work well in a small bedroom. Plus, their cabinets and shelving are fantastic for storing clothes and shoes.
This finished bedroom, with planning and execution, took four months. The nightstands were custom, the wallpaper handmade, the bedframe, furniture, rugs, lighting and accessories took months to arrive from our vendors. Then we had to consider the electrical work, painting, application of the wallcovering, and the installation of the furniture. The takeaway is that a well-done room takes time, planning and patience, but the outcome is worth waiting for.
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.
