Contemporary Colonial Bedroom

Minimal furniture and a strict palette of white accents and dark wood offer a new take on a European country look.

The architecture is the focal point in this large bedroom retreat. A fireplace, white beadboard walls, paneled doors with exposed hinges and reclaimed wood ceiling beams set a country tone, while shuttered windows add an edge of colonial style. A large Empire bed gets a modern boutique hotel treatment with crisp white sheets, creating a clean, airy look.
