The master bedroom in this Mississippi farmhouse features a charcoal headboard inspired by an old door, which brings out the blue in the hand-woven rug and serves as a perfect accent piece in an otherwise neutral room.
The soft color scheme throughout this Alabama lake house brings an element of serenity to this room. The muted brown, green, blue, and tan hues were all inspired by the breathtaking scenery surrounding the home.
Designer Ashley wanted this room to express an "all in with a cocoon-like vibe." Long drapes, a tufted headboard, cozy bedding, and a variety of soft colors and patterns make the master bedroom of this Alabama cabin feel warm and lived-in.
The way that this California bedroom's white shiplap walls slope inward while maintaining a space above the bed adds dimension and extra coziness. The laser-cut lanterns casts soft shadows on the walls at night, adding to the effect.
Made by this East Alabama homeowner's grandmother, the hand-stitched quilt provided design inspiration for the entire guest room, starting with the red-orange paint on the French doors. The , another historically accurate touch, tempers the sweetness of the graphic floral motif.
The oak bed, purchased by the owner's parents in England in the '70s, is a handsome counterpoint to the room's frill factor, which is consistent with the tiny home's entire aesthetic.
A good tiny bedroom strategy: Think like a boutique hotel. Far-flung friends—a.k.a. air mattress aficionados—will appreciate the fluffy towels, reading lights, and wait a minute, is that a pull-down bed? Get even more inspiration for making small spaces work harder.
The owners of this Maine cottage converted a storage unit already on the property into the ultimate he-and-she-shed. Now attached to the main house, the cozy quarters accommodate a queen-size bed and headboard flanked by custom floating bedside tables. Petite lamps and a homemade single-bulb pendant provide ample light without bulk, and a custom lumbar pillow made from Indian textiles helps the room feel a bit wider.
The owners of this Nashville treehouse designed the space around this iron bed, which was originally in a guest room in the main house. Made of bark cloth, the pillow's material is aptly named for its environment.
"We just wanted a spot that was restful and calm," says the owner of this Washington farmhouse. Once they peeled the 1970s pink floral wallpaper off the walls, they uncovered drywall that was bowed, so a friend hit it with a hammer and discovered shiplap, which they painted white. They brought in a platform bed, antique blankets, and an old leather chair from Craigslist.
Yes, the guest room of this Maine home is small (just 10 feet wide!), but what it lacks in square footage it more than makes up for in views. It overlooks the scenic backyard filled with birch and spruce trees. The tiny table—just big enough to accommodate a bud vase, cell phone, or coffee cup—was a gift from the owner's aunt.
Designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard isn't afraid of color—and you shouldn't be either! A seafoam green four-poster bed pairs perfectly with a bright blue comforter and patterned wallpaper.
Refresh a tired space with a lively mix of patterns and hues. A playful bedspread (Tatiana by Kathryn M. Ireland) provides an easy jumping off point to inspire other design elements, like a chippy vintage whitewashed bed that gives soul to the space and keeps feminine prints from feeling too prim. Bold textiles pop against neutral wood paneling, and unexpected accents like a vintage hat mold on the table make a space feel truly personal.
Inspired by a collection of vintage landscape paintings, designer Stephanie Sabbe created a boy's bedroom with the potential to grow with him.
Rather than edit down a large collection of artwork, this California homeowner created a gallery wall that stretches from the crown molding to the baseboards, making room for every cherished piece.
The bedroom in this 105-year-old Victorian farmhouse was originally the house's parlor. The homeowner upholstered the white-painted bed in a graphic blue-and-white-check fabric to complement the whimsical sheets. Wallpaper with a wood grain pattern, a fresh way to achieve a similar effect as unpainted, wood-paneled walls, creates a warm backdrop for the crisp bed.
Patterned textiles add dimension to light, bright spaces, as seen in the master bedroom of this rural Connecticut farmhouse. Although the homeowner mixed multiple patterns—windowpane plaid, vertical and horizontal stripes—the effect is still subdued, thanks to the consistent palette.
A 1950s brass Hollywood Regency headboard that the homeowner picked up at a local antiques store is the centerpiece of the master bedroom in this Arizona ranch home. Its metallic finish inspired the room's other golden accents, from the nightstand's campaign details to the 1960s tufted yellow bench.
The laid-back atmosphere of country superstar Ronnie Dunn's Tennessee barn home is maintained by keeping the palette neutral while focusing on organic textures (lots of linen and rope) and raw materials (metal, wood, and stone). An antique barn door track gets a second life as a picture rail above the tufted burlap headboard in the master bedroom.
The pine-clad ceiling in singer-songwriter Holly Williams' bedroom is painted a cloudy gray. The star of the room—a wrought- iron canopy bed from —is a close match to an antique one that belonged to her maternal grandmother. To toughen up the otherwise feminine space, Holly brought in a rustic leather club chair and simple pine chest. Brass sconces cast a warm light while keeping tabletops clear.
A major wash of blue can feel right as rain. Here, the headboard's large-scale print serves as the jumping-off point for the room's bold mix of motifs. In a smaller scale and lighter hue, the comforter's subtle checks look cohesive, not clashing. Ornately patterned pillows provide a visual counter to the bed's double dose of gingham.
While this inviting bedroom gets a dose of character from multiple patterns, the real showstopper is the bed frame's bold spindle design, a classic country style of furniture that's making a comeback.
Century-old quilts in Pinwheel (left) and Bear's Paw patterns dress the antique wrought-iron beds in one of this Nantucket cottage's bedrooms. The new rag rug was handwoven by area artisans at the Weaving Room, and the demijohn lamp hails from an antiques shop.
Don't underestimate the value of soft-spoken accents. Here, pale pink pillow shams and glass knobs play an important supporting role to the bedroom's blue-and-white foundation. Accessories (a book, the basket, and a blanket) in slightly brighter shades of pink finish the look with a little extra oomph.
This inviting room offers traditional country charm with a few fresh updates. For a fresh, not fussy, approach, stick to one color scheme and balance large-scale prints (like the floral and gingham) with small ones (like the plaid and block print).
In the master bedroom of this Connecticut home, a vintage stool and ladder stand in as bedside tables. The coverlet is from Calypso, and the walls are painted White Dove by Benjamin Moore.
A reclaimed barn door serves as this master bedroom's headboard. The women nabbed the sisal rug at a Pottery Barn outlet. The walls are painted Smokey Taupe by Benjamin Moore.
Set against the white walls and floors, the mostly white pillows and duvet cover establish a cohesive, not choppy, look and serene vibe. Meanwhile, a few red stripes and a floral coverlet add just enough pattern to keep the room from feeling lifeless in this Florida cottage.
While the brown, black, and gray elements of this lake home's master bedroom might seem a bit quiet, the neutral palette helps the beautiful scenery outside the windows take center stage.
