For the Birds
A delicate aviary-themed mural highlights the feminine beauty of a whitewashed carved bed.

Light and Bright
Dandelion-patterned bedding, wallpaper and artwork give this cheery room a pulled-together look and sunny vibe.

Posh Patterns
Navy and white chinoiserie fabric used throughout a bedroom feels sophisticated and fresh when mixed with a sisal carpet, crisp white bedding and white walls.

Yellow Fever
A white carved bed, upholstered in mustard-yellow linen, pops in a soothing gray room.

Coming Up Roses
Rose-patterned wallpaper and textiles get a youthful lift with the help of red and blue accents.

Cottage Chic

Switched Up
Select bedding that coordinates but doesn’t match exactly for an effortlessly chic look.

Eclectic Design
Exaggerated elements—like the oversized lighting and the bold bed upholstery—pop against modern geometric wallpaper.

Lightening Up
Pompom-fringed bedding and cheerful, oversized artwork add colorful and playful touches to a bedroom.

Traditional Take
A tall mahogany chest of drawers and tailored white bedding complement the traditional look of the toile wallpaper and upholstery.

Accented Space
Painting an accent wall behind a bed helps to anchor the room and tie in bedding and decor.

Sweet Sentiments
Floral upholstery, ruffled pillows and a small carved mirror create a delicate and feminine bedroom.

Hide and Seek
A floral-patterned upholstered storage bench creates a hiding place for extra blankets and is a charming visual element.

Zest for Life
The lively combination of bright pink and orange looks sophisticated when presented in tailored bedding and classic patterns.

Display Worthy
Photos and artwork look artful when displayed in matching frames on a long shelf above the bed.

Fluffy and Warm
A shaggy sheepskin adds a layer of texture to white sheets and keeps the bed warm on chilly nights.

In the Spotlight
Yellow pendant lights brighten pale blue and tan bedding.

Touch of Class
Adding a velvet blanket and damask pillows to this carved bed gives the room a luxurious feel.

Graphic Design
