This room, which belongs to B.D. Wong, is very simply designed, but features shiny fabrics such as the comforter. The bed itself is a simple sleigh bed in a soft wood color. Above the bed is the handcrafted area rug that is proudly displayed for all to see rather than being walked upon. The rest of the room is beautifully retro and all around stylish.
An obvious place to begin is with color. One trick of the trade many designers use it to pull an accent color from the rug, window treatments, or upholstery to work into artwork on the walls. In this way, everything in the room is subtly unified, even if you're layering with lots of patterns or experimenting with several different hues at once. Try purple wall art that speaks to the sheer curtains on the windows; violet poppies make this warm shade sing, especially when the floral plaques themselves are placed on an opposite wall.
I really like the exposed brick designs that I come across when doing these posts. This bedroom features that exposed brick and on that brick are very different pieces of wall art. The overall room is simple and there isn’t much to it, but the atmosphere is nice. I like the simplicity of the wrought iron bed as well. It’s the perfect space for a bachelor or college student.
This luxurious bedroom sporting a combination of dark and bright colors gives off the impression of wealth and royalty. With more ornate or gold-plated furniture, it brings back the splendor of La Belle Epoque. The dark paintings and heavy curtains cover the walls making the ambient more secluded and personal while the covered lamps and antique-looking chandelier keep the room well-lit. The large bed gives it a comforting look or an otherwise serious environment.
