How to get this designer bedroom look

Warm, cozy neutrals and layered textiles turn this master suite into a relaxing retreat. To help you achieve our model home look, we’ve identified the defining elements of this designer bedroom.

The color palette

Sherwin-Williams® Balanced Beige (SW 7037) 1, Backdrop (SW 7025) 2 and Pearly White (SW 7009) 3 set the stage for the room’s rich bronze, silver, taupe, ash and spicy ginger tones.

The lighting

Our designers have selected a North Park ceiling fan by Progress Lighting® 4 and a pair of Teo table lamps with flat shades by Arteriors Home® 5 to supplement the room’s abundant natural light. The clean, squared lines of the ceiling fan’s blades and glass mimic the strong angles of the transitional style furniture and contrast the soft curves of the blown-glass table lamps.

The furniture

The focal point of the bedroom is, of course, the impressive bed 6 flanked by a pair of Hampton bedside chests 7. Ours is a custom-built Sherry bed by Brownstone, featuring dark walnut wood and raw Catania silk upholstery. If you’re looking for a similar style that’s ready off the shelf, check out Stanley Furniture’s Hudson Street-Avenue upholstered bed. The pewter leather Karr stools at the foot of the bed were from Room & Board® 8 and the wingback Bristol chair 9 was custom upholstered for us. If you’d like to have this chair, have it upholstered through a store like Metrospace Home or select a readymade substitute like this one from Crate & Barrel.

The fabrics

The bed’s luxurious raw silk upholstery is complemented by a matching tailored bedspread with gusseted corners 10, a custom ginger throw and matching pillows in Robert Allen’s Multi Pearl pattern 11, granite gray Catania silk pillows 12 and an Anise Embroidery accent pillow in ash gray by Romo 13. Drapes made from the same granite silk as the pillows have delicate Henna beaded trim by Trend® 14 and dark walnut Stroheim® hardware 15 for an added touch of understated elegance.

The accessories

The finishing touches on our masterpiece are the accessories.

  • Bronze- and silver-toned wall art by Patrick St. Germain 16 picks up the metallic sheen of the drapes and adds a sleek, embossed dimension to the room. Pro tip: Depending on the art you’ve chosen, don’t limit yourself to hanging it in the direction it was meant to be displayed. We’ve changed the orientation of these pussy willow scenes by 90 degrees to echo the broad rectangles of the lampshades and headboard and to better suit the space.
  • Plants 17, whether real or artificial, can give a room an extra spark of life. Our designers chose species with spiky, bladed leaves to complement the room’s clean, sharp lines while adding organic charm. A low-maintenance live plant like a Dracaena (Dragon Tree) palm or a yucca tree may also deliver added benefit: enhanced indoor air quality!
  • Metallic photo frames, a silver bedside clock and a ginger ceramic jar 18 provide add a hint of personalization, while also contributing to the richness of the palette.
