We first up to date the wallpaper and trim shade on this room earlier this 12 months. Not too long ago, I added a stunning vintage dresser from an area vintage retailer, Artwork and Structure. This piece provides extra character and storage to the house. I additionally added a unique overhead gentle from the identical vintage retailer. Lastly, I modified the format.

This temper board path leans extra conventional with punchier contrasts in shade and elegance. I really like the thought of getting polished furnishings classing with a postmodern Italian bamboo mirror, traditional-print pillows, and a geometrical wool blanket casually strewn atop a glam Hollywood Regency-style mattress. A lot enjoyable. It’s nonetheless gentle and female however with an edge.

This temper board path is a bit Scandinavian and a bit conventional with a splash of prep college. I believe it’s all about getting the sample combine proper right here—too matchy-matchy or too anticipated in scale can really feel drained. I really like the thought of classing a graphic cloth print in an outsized scale with architectural lamps, delicate embossed busts in frames, and marbled paper lamp shades, all highlighting the focus—a playfully trendy wooden mattress.
