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.
To maximize limited floor space — especially because the bed typically takes up much of this valuable real estate — incorporate flexible furniture that folds up to the wall. You might try a foldout desk that doubles as a makeup table. A wall-mounted pullout shoe organizer in the closet can free up space on the closet floor for a small chest of drawers, adding needed storage.
Your bedroom is one of the most important rooms in your house and should be a cozy retreat for you to enjoy fully. Whether it's luxurious bedding, soothing color schemes, or unique accent pieces, paying close attention to your design decisions can result in a chic space for rest and relaxation. We invited 10 Dering Hall interior designers to share their take on the best ways to take a bedroom design to the next level.
If you prefer the look of a Roman shade, hang that from the ceiling. Pull the shade down just enough to cover the top of the window. This will elongate the look of your window and draw the eye up.
