Easy Being Green

Bet you couldn't tell this sunny bedroom is actually located in a basement. Sarah maximized the small amount of natural light with plenty of crisp white in the room's walls, bedding and flooring. A bold, graphic wallpaper adds textural interest while the custom, arched headboard in a cheery green shade really pops.

Too Hip to Be Square

David covered an accent wall in sculptural, laser-cut mahogany to create a dramatic backdrop for the room's nightclub-inspired round bed. Minimal twin headboards, covered in the same sleek, white vinyl as the rest of the bed, provide a comfortable spot for lounging without visually competing with the focal wall.

From: Candice Tells All

Ready for Romance

Candice knows how to spark a flame in the bedroom. She recommends starting with a soothing color palette paired with the right amount of soft lighting to create a restful sanctuary. A built-in fireplace and massive crystal chandelier enhance the room's romantic feel while an oversized, upholstered headboard takes advantage of the soaring vaulted ceiling.

Subdued Sophistication

Richly textured, neutral fabric surrounded by a raised walnut frame is a refined choice for this streamlined bedroom. Sarah combined soft gray with pale cream for a look that is evocative of old Hollywood yet is still fresh and modern.
