Owner Bonnie Brooks looked across the pond for inspiration for her Toronto Victorian home: she wanted to evoke the French capital. The moldings and high ceilings in this home help drive home the effect, but it’s the French doors and chevron parquet floor that really conjure up a Parisian pied-à-terre.
A beautiful wood ceiling is pretty to contemplate in this hacienda, but the whirling ceiling fan adds to the languid air (and breaks up the desert heat). A light palette visually turns down the thermostat and makes this bedroom a welcome escape.
Custom-scaled wallpaper, a fringed rug and geo bedding brings this Toronto home’s Moroccan style into the principal bedroom. A leggy gold-framed side table is a luxe addition.
From the on-trend velvet headboard and chair to the tribal rug, fringe pillows and brass accents, this bedroom is a primer for sought after looks. The eclectic grouping of posters framed in inexpensive antique frames are a shot of personality.
“I wanted it to be dressed in a palette that I would never tire of,” says designer Sarah Richardson of her stunning principal bedroom. She used a carved architectural fragment to create a canopy effect above the bed and installed an antique chandelier to emphasize the ceiling height, but it’s the layering of ethereal greys that make this room sing.
Layers of billowy pleated cottons and pillows trimmed with tassels and crochet inject lots of romance into this breezy white bedroom. A battered side table emphasizes the laid-back farmhouse vibe, while pretty block-print textiles are timeless.
This simple white bedroom in designer Fenwick Bonnell’s cottage addition was designed with ceiling-height built-ins that maximize storage. The blanket chest at the foot of the bed was moved from the original part of the cottage, while sunny yellow accents brighten the space.
Much like a downtown hotel with great views of the skyline, the furniture in this bedroom was strategically positioned to take advantage of the treetops outside. A calming palette of blue and almond easily blends with the outdoor scenery while textures and patterns mimic those found in nature.
Instead of wallpapering the principal bedroom in this Bridgehampton, New York, home, pattern was introduced on a series of upholstered screens behind the classic four-poster bed that can be easily moved. “They make the bedroom much cozier,” says homeowner Mario Grauso.
A custom headboard that reaches the ceiling and features built-in side tables envelopes the bed in this chic space. The tonal bedding and rug enhances the serene effect.
The headboard and sconces in this bedroom have the clean lines that are synonymous with mid-century modern designs. Floating tables incorporated into the headboard are practical for keeping items close at hand, and are sharp looking.
This 1,000-square-foot bedroom in a refurbished home in Ballycroy, Ontario, once served as the town dance hall. Light cotton drapery won’t block the sunlight from filtering in, and there’s a fun wood bead chandelier to light up the night once the sun sets.
