Tommy Smythe's Soothing Bedroom

Layer oversize prints, like this rustic buffalo plaid blanket and floral pillow, to add a contemporary feel to the otherwise traditional space.

The bedroom of Tommy Smythe, associate designer with Sarah Richardson Design and co-star of HGTV's Sarah's Cottage and Sarah's House, is a marked departure in style from the rest of his apartment. "The living room is fun and energetic, but I wanted this room to be serene," he says. He painted the walls a soft grey-green to achieve that effect.
