Baby blue keeps this room feeling elegant and classy. A touch of bolder blue in the throw pillows adds punch while the rest of the space stays muted.

Various shades of pale yellow give this traditional room a monochromatic look. The 19th century Victorian home in Boston has been restored and expanded yet hasn’t lost its character. Brimming with pattern, the room doesn’t appear busy, but rather, soothing and homey.

Bedroom Design: 5 Unusual Seaside Bedrooms

Post by Tracy Kaler.

When we think of bedrooms by the sea, we dream of blue and white fabrics, natural materials like cotton, sisal, and jute, and nautical motifs such as ships and anchors. But not all beachy sleeping quarters need to be typical or what we’d expect. In fact, some beach houses stray from the norm completely, barely exuding a coastal feel at all. Let’s take a look at five unusual seaside bedrooms.

This vibrant Newport Beach bedroom skips the usual ocean-like colors and goes bold with accents. More often seen in neutral or aqua, the red shell motif is unexpected.

This contemporary bedroom feels so Miami because the home is located in Miami. Notice the shoji-type backdrop behind the bed. A gray and white color palette sets the stage for the water view.

Relaxed and sophisticated, this eclectic bedroom boasts clean lines and classic furnishings but happens to be in a home on the Pacific Coast. Built-ins and an armoire keep the space clutter-free.

Although this Florida bedroom has a big city vibe, it happens to be in a house at the Hallandale Beach Club. A low bed, modern furnishings, and the highway backdrop give the space a cosmopolitan feel.

This Montauk bedroom embodies rustic glamor. The dark stain on the wood floors isn’t the obvious choice for a home on the coast, but works well with the white walls and bedding, a lighter wood ceiling, and navy blue accents. Everything is chic about this room.

Bedroom Design: 5 Bachelor Pad Bedrooms

Post by Tracy Kaler.

When we think of bachelor pads, we often imagine colors like black, deep gray and navy blue, waterbeds, sparse furnishings, and, in general, not a very stylish interior. But single men have come a long way with their desire to be fashionable and live in attractive environments, especially when they’re trying to impress a certain special someone.

For our single male readers and their lady friends, let’s take a look at some ultra-chic bachelor pad bedrooms.

This modern bedroom might have a minimalist design, but the space feels fashion forward. Neutral colors blend nicely, and a small bud vase adds just the right amount of femininity for contrast.

Color and pattern decorate the walls of this pre-war bedroom in the West Village of New York City. A 30-something professional lives in the apartment, which boasts a relaxed yet pulled-together design. At 140 square feet, this compact bachelor pad bedroom appears to get plenty of natural light.

Clean lines and colors work well in this contemporary bedroom. A striped accent pillow adds a splash of color. Crisp linens, a mod chandelier, and a small writing desk that doubles as a nightstand finish off the design.

Cuba is the theme in this bold bachelor pad bedroom in D.C. The yellow and green walls and striped bedcovering lend a tropical feel. It’s refreshing to see so much color in a gentleman’s quarters.

This room is anything but subtle and definitely plays on drama. This space is typical bachelor pad with an oversized Chesterfield bed and lots of black and leather. The masculine bedroom takes on a theatrical quality.

Decorating with Painted Furniture in a Bedroom

Post by Tracy Kaler.

If you have a collection of mismatched furniture and you’d like your room to have a more refined aesthetic, consider painting all the pieces one color. Painting is an easy and economical way to unify a variety of furniture styles in the same room.

Or, perhaps you need a splash? Purchase one brightly colored accent piece, such as a nightstand or side chair, and it could be just what your bedroom needs.

Be it black, white, or your favorite bold hue, let’s take a look at decorating a bedroom with painted furnishings.

Raspberry is the color of choice in this girl’s room. This tone might not seem all that practical, but it adds personality to what would otherwise be a pretty bland space. The sage green walls are a beautiful backdrop too.

A shabby-chic style Chicago bedroom takes on an elegant feel with older white furniture. Notice the variety of white used here. Different shades make this romantic room feel cohesive, yet not boring.

Eclectic Bedroom

A turquoise chest adds just the right amount of color to this simple guest room with no headboards, painted floors, and sheer curtains. Can you picture the room without the chest? I think it would feel like it was missing an essential component. This room is a terrific example of a single piece of furniture completing a space.

Black brings this bedroom to life. The black painted furnishings and roman shades combined with the funky chandelier and table lamp, not to mention the skins and guitars work well together for a boy’s room or guest quarters.

Contemporary Boys Bedroom

I adore everything about this bedroom. The delicate bed with a painted green finish; the white nightstands with green hardware; the symmetry, and even the placement of the bed in front of the window. Everything feels right.

Bedroom Design: 6 Fabulous Brooklyn Bedrooms

Post by Tracy Kaler.

What’s all the hype about Brooklyn? In case you didn’t know, Brooklyn has become one of the most desirable places to live in the country. It’s also become not so affordable, but that’s another story. With Prospect Park at its heart, charming brownstone-lined streets, a slew of indie boutiques, and a locavore mentality, Brooklyn is the place if you’re cool or trying to learn how to be cool. That being said, wherever you have coolness, you most certainly have beautiful interiors. Let’s take a peek at six fabulous Brooklyn bedrooms.

Brooklyn house gut renovation

This traditional bedroom pulls out all the stops –– rich, hardwood floors, a bold accent wall, and classic furnishings. I want to note the size of this room, which is in a house and not an apartment. This space is sprawling compared to most NYC bedrooms.

Loft Styling & Creative Charm in Brooklyn

This loft bedroom has a real Bohemian feel. Notice the lack of a nightstand, but a ladder instead. The relaxed space is a great example of a casual design that is well thought out.

One Brooklyn Bridge Park Loft

Sleek and chic, this bedroom is a One Brooklyn Bridge loft. Notice the fun pillows and the out-of-scale accessories. This space has a very retro aesthetic.

Brooklyn Penthouse

A bright blue bed wall sets the tone for this space in a contemporary Brooklyn penthouse. Storage is cleverly built into the design of this boy’s bedroom, which can easily double as a guest room.

Brooklyn Brownstone

This crisp master bedroom in a Brooklyn brownstone keeps the design and details simple yet luxurious. The arrows above the bed might be the most interesting art choice that I’ve seen to date.

How sweet is this bedroom? If you love lavender, you have serious envy by now. Although the colors and flowers lend femininity to the room, this romantic space could easily be a master bedroom.
