Serene Bedroom Design

Simple white bedding allows the printed drapes — a steal at $12 a yard — to steal the spotlight.

H&H style editor Michael Penney talked his wife into letting him paint the bedroom ceiling an intense robin's egg blue. The granny-chic valance can be removed for a more streamlined look down the road.

See more photos of Michael's former apartment and a tour in our gallery and video. Plus, see tours of his new house, too!
