Adding a luxe-looking headboard is a surefire way to increase the glam factor in your bedroom. A beautiful one need not be expensive, but it should have a notable feature such as a bold color, unique shape, impressive height or elegant fabric such as linen or velvet.
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.
A bedroom should be your sanctuary. Ideally, it should have enough room to store personal items and give you space to relax, dream and feel your most comfortable. But when you’re faced with limited square footage, creating a bedroom that does all these things can be challenging. Oftentimes the need for storage and functionality overshadows the desire for style. The result can be a bedroom that feels unloved, cluttered, even lackluster.
Unless you’re going for an ultra minimalist look, bare white walls in a bedroom can feel more stark than luxurious. Embrace a little paint or wallpaper to give your bedroom a warmer, more designed look.
