Classic Bedroom

For maximum flexibility, go for freestanding furniture that you can easily rearrange if you want a change. Choose classic, well-made furniture that will stand the test of time, and opt for drawers instead of shelves for a tidier look.

Painted furniture and a toile bedspread gives this bedroom a calming French-style, while the wooden letters above the bed add a touch of romance. The room is kept fresh and bright with an off-white backdrop.
