Add charm to your sleeping quarters.
This bedroom’s neutral palette allows the delicate floral bed frame to shine. A few pops of rich cerulean blue keep the look interesting without overwhelming the space.
The open ceiling in this principal bedroom enhances the airiness of the bright white space. Natural linen bedding gives the bed a soft, slightly rumpled European look. Mosquito netting is a charming accent — and a practical touch in the country.
The walls above the white tongue-and-groove wainscotting are a deep putty colour to complement the upholstery. The canopy bed feels cosy and contained, even without curtains.
The owners of this century-old lakeside home kept the original pine floors, which were in pristine condition. A splash of white paint brightens the room’s panelled walls, while the natural wood finish on the ceiling adds warmth. Contemporary lamps and bedside tables keep the look sophisticated.
Dress up white cotton bedding with a quilt and accent pillows in the same bold crimson print at the head and foot of the bed only. Cheerful striped rugs temper the elegance of a four-poster bed.
An antique brass bed layered with a country quilt and tons of pillows is an inviting destination in designer Sarah Richardson’s holiday home. From polka-dots to paisley to floral and stripes, Sarah is a master at mixing unexpected textiles.
A palette of creams and tans gives this bedroom a sophisticated, soothing vibe, while the stunning cane bed adds character and authentic French flair. Identical lamps sit on open and closed night tables, for a feeling of symmetry that’s not too “matchy.” A textured rug helps warm up the large room, too.
The bed’s aubergine and cream coverlet from France complements the room’s dainty chandelier.
A quirky lamp, with an English-pub feel, doesn’t look out of place atop the antique sideboard. The bright red rug breaks up the extensive wood with a pop of colour.
A variety of patterns in this bedroom make a bold statement: the bird-motif wallpaper and Source UK’s Pom Pom rug, based on Japanese shibori, a tie-dye technique. The teeny bedside table is both charming and useful in this tight space.
Tongue-and-groove panelling, painted a soothing sage and a bright white, creates a cosy backdrop for an inviting mix of thrift store finds.
A palette of pale blues and creamy whites plays into this principal bedroom’s atmosphere of calm. The homeowners had the cypress ceiling pickled to accentuate the height, and to tone down the orange. French doors flood the room with light and lead to private gardens.
With a coffered ceiling, chandelier and four-poster bed, this refined principal bedroom is an unexpected find in a lakeside summer home. The cool, pale tones of the room are offset by the black bed frame, which creates a focal point in the space. The addition of a small sitting area, formed by the chair and footstool opposite the bed, adds another element of luxury to the room.
Painting interiors a crisp white or soft neutral enhances the amount of light coming in from large windows. Here, views of Georgian Bay can be taken in from a comfortable window seat. Pale bedding and open side tables also keep the room fresh and airy.
Nestled in the Niagara Escarpment, antique dealer Jill Kantelberg’s country home is a stunning winter escape. Inspired by some of the homes she has visited in her travels through France, England and Belgium, her home is a cross between a great old barn and a country manor. The master bedroom is a luxurious retreat all in itself. With a limestone mantel and wide plank floors, every detail suits the room’s rustic aesthetic. The raised fireplace allows Jill to put her feet up on the hearth and feel the warmth when sitting here. The English tester, or four-poster bed, was made from reclaimed linen-fold oak panelling.
The guest bedroom in the 2010 Princess Margaret Showhome layers buttercream walls with floral chintz, creating a romantic escape for overnight visitors. Raffia inserts and exposed nail heads make the bed look like an antique. The nubbly wool rug and printed linen drapes add cosy texture to the space.
Fresh white walls and pretty patterned bed linens add a feminine touch to the industrial reading lamps and unfinished wood beams.
In this bunkie, a caribou hide and vintage Paint By Number artworks allude to the wilderness locale. A simple bedframe is painted a muted seafoam green for a touch of playful colour.
