Black/White – Bedrooms

Those who know me well, know I love black and white. Completely simple, yet always interesting enough to grab your attention. Never boring, never goes out of style.

The dramatic four poster bed brings plenty of drama, all you need to do is keep everything else simple.

Get the look: Big statement at a small price with the Hemnes bed from Ikea. It only comes in yellow but a quick coat of paint and you’re all set!

I love mosquito nets and mesh canopies!  Maybe it’s just too much time in Africa, but the soft, airy sheers just add a romantic tone to a bedroom. Right now I’m missing mine. Find one at Pier 1, or even Ikea. (again, I know)

Fornasetti pillows… a great start to a chic space. But that’s just the beginning – I love the beautiful wallpaper behind the headboard, find it here. While you’re there, check out the gorgeous Fornasetti wallpaper too. For pillows, plates and everything Fornasetti, go to palazzetti.com

A n all-white bedroom can have a rather feminine tone (see below), using strong black elements helps to ground the space and add a masculine component.

Just lovely. Creamy neutral walls, antiqued linens, simple Saarinen base side table, white washed headboard and lots of light – make this space like a trip to the clouds. This look is super simple to achieve – this headboard was created from wide planks, fastened together then white-washed with watered down white paint. Trip to the hardware store and you’re done. Complete the look with an antique mirror – find one with an interesting frame at an antique shop or your local Goodwill and white wash it for the same effect.
