Emphasize Height

If you are blessed with high ceilings, take full advantage of them and choose a tall bed to anchor the room. "The height of the bed calls attention to the volume and height of the ceilings," explains Melanie Miller, ASID, president and founder of The Design Atelier in Atlanta. To pull off the effect, choose a delicate bed with a lot of architectural interest to add height. A bed without a footboard, which visually marks the end of the bed, ensures you won't be adding heft to the space. "A wooden four-poster bed would look heavy and command too much attention," she explains.
