This upstairs "dormitory" in a Hamptons summer home evokes childhood summers with vintage schoolhouse lights, mosquito netting, and cast-iron beds. White dormers contrast with the original woodwork, which was oiled but left unpainted. Light-colored bedding gives the room its relaxing air.
Charleston, South Carolina, homeowner Clare Pernice's affection for the way paint "gets really absorbed into the walls of old places" prompted her to treat the guest room with a deep, matte chocolate. "I wanted it to feel velvety and intimate," she says. Accent colors like the pale greens and oranges of the antique crewelwork bedspread keep the darkness from becoming overwhelming. The overall effect makes it a very restful spot.
In a young girl's room in Sag Harbor, New York, a 19th-century bed has been reupholstered in a heavy velvet. The French 19th-century chair gives the family dog, Magic, easy access to the bed. Even the toy horses have provenance: They are Dala horses, a traditional motif of Dalarna, Sweden. The carved chest is German.
A wood ceiling, installed by the original owners of this Madison, Wisconsin, home, gives a warm touch to the master bedroom, as do the walls, which are painted a pale blue-gray. Everything the new owners added to the room has simple lines, from the bed to the square nesting tables.
In her Skylands guesthouse in Maine, Martha Stewart had a lampshade made to match the Italian alabaster reading lamp; the ruffled edge echoes the fluted top of the lamp base. The sconce is one of a set of Italian lyre-backed pieces in the room that belonged to Martha's grandmother.
In this Texas ranch house, a king-size bed nook framed by ornate molding dominates the master bedroom. It reminds owner and photographer Tosca Radigonda, who fell in love with the over-the-top design detail and highlighted it with white paint, of a hotel in Miami in the forties. To act as a counterpoint to its curves, she added angular side tables and a vinyl headboard and bench.
This tiny New York City bedroom had just 13 inches on either side of the bed after it was centered against the back wall. An ingenious headboard -- just fabric hung from a wooden dowel -- provided a dramatic touch without sacrificing depth. They used the same fabric here that they did for the sofa pillows, so the apartment felt unified. The law of symmetry prevailed again, this time in the form of bedside tables.
The antique furnishings in the master bedroom of the eclectic Bonnet House, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, were an extravagant wedding gift from the family of the estate's original owner -- Frederic Clay Bartlett. Bartlett, a painter, put his own spin on the room by painting everything blue and white. Today, Bonnet House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and continues to serve as a gathering spot for artists, with frequent concerts and exhibitions.
In this Brooklyn apartment's master bedroom, a chest bought on eBay is repurposed as a TV cabinet. To balance the feminine colors of a pink armchair and custom camel headboard (not shown), the owner opted for crisp shapes (the chest, the mirror) and bold symmetry (the stools, the framed prints), so the room looks tailored and not overly girlish.
