Real-Life Bedrooms

This groovy room pairs vintage furniture and modern bedding with a big nod to the past. The Bertoia wire chair? A mid-century masterpiece. The ceramic fish? A piece of kitsch. But they both work, somehow!

With a generously proportioned sleigh bed and high bombe chests, this bedroom becomes a well-appointed gentleman's retreat. A classic rug and vintage photographs add to the masculine appeal. But lush linens and fresh flowers make the room attractive to everyone.

The large poster bed is the attention-grabber in this pale master suite. The easiest way to create drama in a smaller room is to choose one beautiful overscale piece of furniture and let it take charge

The sophisticated furniture and neutral palette gives this room an undertone of opulence, while the angled bed and large-scale accents add a bit of drama.

The monochromatic window treatments, headboard, and walls offer a soothing backdrop to the simple white linens and accessories in this restful retreat

When the shell of a room offers this much drama, furnishings can take a supporting role. This simple bed is beautifully sheltered within the soaring dormer while well-chosen lamps and accessories stretch into the vertical space.

Framed by two long mirrors, unique lamps, and contemporary side tables, this modern bedroom gains a formal air from its disciplined symmetry
