Graphic Wallpaper

This cozy contemporary bedroom is complete with an intimate seating arrangement, plush fabrics and clean-lined accents. Graphic wallpaper adds character and whimsy to the master bedroom. Design by Jennifer Jones

Corals and Grays

Who says contemporary design is cold? The warm, dark gray paint is a beautiful backdrop to the crisp cream and corals. Design by Ana Donohue

Crisp Lines

White on white can be a timeless and refreshing palette. Using a dark paint color to make your whites pop, along with metallic accents, creates a luxury hotel-style bedroom. Design by Domicile Interior Design

Dramatic Bed

When working in a large-scale bedroom, you can use oversized pieces of furniture to anchor your space. This beautiful wood headboard becomes a centerpiece in this contemporary dream room. Design by SPI Design

Seaside Hues

Natural fabrics keep this bedroom feeling light, and organic linen upholstery, breezy window coverings and sea grass area rugs provide a consistent palette without being too matched or themed. Photography by Jeri Koegel. Design by Natalie Umbert

Statement Wall

Make a strong statement with a wood wall or exposed brick. Keeping the furnishings light ensures the final product will not be too dark or overpowering. Artwork can be kept to a minimum with this approach. Design by Madelyn Simon

Subdued Stripes

A cherry wood bed from Thomas Moser positioned in front of horizontally striped wallpaper creates a focal point for this bedroom. Layers of textures lend sophistication to this space. Design by Erica Islas

Playful Details

This simple, elegant Rustic-Contemporary master bedroom suite with a reclaimed wood accent wall and tons of natural light is a fantastic space for relaxing in peace at the end of a busy day.

Enticing Red

Bold red fills this intimate bedroom, from the walls to the bedding. Sleek black bedside lamps and textured bedding bring a contemporary vibe to the space. Designer Marie Burgos placed black-and-white photography above the bed for a feminine focal point.

Floral Accents

The floral-print bedding and artwork soften this mostly contemporary bedroom. The deep purple color of the carpet is carried through to the lamps and accessories. The drum shade chandelier brings sparkle to the space. Design by Joseph Pubillones

Spa-Like Features

Soft textures and a subtle color palette create a soothing ambiance in this spa-inspired bedroom. The plush oversized headboard and wall-mounted lamps provide extra comfort when reading a book in bed. Design by Ann Wisniewski

Dramatic Walls

This bedroom goes outside the norm, but is still fresh and welcoming. Designer Mollie Openshaw implemented bold-patterned wallpaper to make a dramatic statement. The tropical print wallpaper creates an eye-catching accent wall for this fun space.
