Contemporary Bedroom

The master bedroom cantilevers over the first floor, making it both isolated and open to the world outside. The recycled timber beams, natural light and expansiveness of the space make it a perfect retreat for the inhabitant of this residence.

The study/guest bedroom was sparsely furnished with a trundle daybed that sleeps two when extended. It's covered in custom canvas covers and bolsters.

From the custom white waffle-weave draperies that are banded with dark green corduroy to the tapestry and satin pillows resting on a woven coverlet, textural contrast can be seen throughout this bedroom. A yellow glass lamp gives the space a bit of panache to a crisp and fresh guest room designed for a turnkey vacation home.

Cocktails, anyone? Who wouldn't want to relax in this sophisticated island oasis? Natural woven shades soften afternoon sunlight and provide necessary privacy because this bedroom faces a golf course. The faux-finished accent wall, conceived and painted by the designer, complements custom sea-foam green bedding featuring durable, contract-quality fabrics.

The custom bed headboard with the side floating nightstands has pendant lights above each nightstand. A white shag rug defines the area under the bed and provides a contrast to the dark wood floors. Commanding views of the city from the balcony beyond and southwestern light pouring in make for a dramatic setting.

Clean lines and geometrics create the perfect backdrop for a fantastic city view in this master bedroom.

The combination of a sleek-lined chair and collection of glass vases with ethnic masks and puppets over the bed makes a worldly contemporary statement in this bedroom.

A custom TV armoire was designed and built to match the sleek furniture in this bedroom. Pocket doors allow unobstructed viewing of the television.

Used as a guest bedroom, this space overlooks the pool and expansive view of the San Bernardino Mountains. The floors and architect-designed furniture are made of sustainably harvested vertical grain Douglas fir. Clean lines, warm hues and natural light make this a serene and inviting space.

Eclectic Bedrooms

This sophisticated master bedroom was created by infusing natural textures, such as a grass cloth wall covering, with elegant and soothing color tones in the fabrics of the custom bedding and draperies. The homeowner desired a comfortable and softly contemporary place to relax and unwind.

The view in this master bedroom looks north on the Big Sur coast. The exaggerated Berber rug adds texture and a swath of color to the stained concrete floor.

Sleeping in a blue room creates a calming feeling helping one to relax. Inexpensive white molding is added to the wall to for a sophisticated framing detail. Organic white bed linens are spiced up with splashes of color from throw and pillows.

The neutral color palette is enriched by the use of red accents throughout this space, which quickly converts into sleeping quarters for the occasional guest. The use of crisp white linens completes the calm and restful look.

Design Modern Bedroom

Black and White All Over
Black and white is a popular contemporary decorating trend. This black-and-white duo is both flirty and sophisticated. Two floor-length mirrors complement the black wood-framed bed and highlight two glass chandeliers. Above the bed, three floating shelves allow for space to display photographs or other favorite accessories.

Floor-to-Ceiling Simplicity
This well-lit room with floor-to-ceiling windows is the perfect space for contemporary design. Simple bedding pops with colorful pillows in different textures. A sleek partition wall in a neutral shade keeps the bed space separate from the rest of the room.

Style Combination
This room transitions between contemporary and traditional. To make the two work together, subtle hints of traditional style sneak onto the bed with striped and floral pillows. A contemporary headboard with an upholstery pattern is nestled into the windows behind the bed.

Pillow Talk
In this room, modern elements can all be found in the bed. Oversize pillows in contrasting colors are a dramatic touch to a neutral down comforter. A tall headboard with a ledge allows for a unique way to display artwork.

Calming Retreat
Contemporary doesn't have to be bold. For a pared-down modern look like this, choose furniture pieces with simple lines and neutral colors. Unique lamps on the bedside tables provide additional modern flair.

Sleek and Fresh
Simplicity, subtle color, and clean lines help to define contemporary style in this master bedroom. While maintaining a very neutral and simple palette, two chairs in the sitting area add some personality and a dash of color. The design and visual appearance of the glass partition wall finishes the modern look.

Bold Prints
Patterns can be intimidating, but they can also work to create a bold and inviting space. Varying scales of a similar black-and-white pattern are found on the wall and bed spread, lending a wonderful backdrop for bold colored accessories.

Confident Color
This bedroom is exploding with warm colors, prints, and texture. Color and pattern were brought into the design with several pillows, contrasting rugs, and bold paint. A neutral couch sitting in front of the window allows for color to be spread beyond the bed and walls.

Understated Elegance
This room features a tone-on-tone color palette that relies heavily on brown, light blue, and pure white. By keeping the room basic, the brown leather headboard and decorative pillows are able to pop off the wall even more.

Class and Comfort
In this pleasantly unassuming master suite, beige tones are offset with rich wood and bold blue pillows, while a mahogany divider grounds the bed and partitions off the sitting room.

Asian Bedroom

Geometry is inherent in every aspect of this symmetrical master bedroom. The shapes and colors of the patchwork bedding add visual interest and are balanced by the simple horizontal lines of the headboard and the antique Burmese artifact hung above it. Photo by Ralph Alswang.

Minimalism is a key component of the Asian style. By placing a bamboo plant next to this antique rocker with a natural colored throw and pillow, the sitting area feels calm and inviting.

Five antique Chinese carvings create a dramatic headboard for the queen size bed in this room while cobalt blue tiles frame the bed as the focal point. The bed's side and end rails give balance to the height of the headboard and eliminated the need for any skirting.

A special faux wall finish, custom bedding, drapes and cornice give this master bedroom some serious Asian style.

The neutral color palette of the guest room’s bed linens and pillows contrasts with the richness of the red wall; carefully selected art and accessories create a memorable vignette.

This bedroom exemplifies how to make guests feel truly special! The green color scheme provides relaxing qualties and helps bring the outdoors in. Window treatments with simple lines enhance the view of the gardens while adding elegance.

Chinese wall hangings helped provide the color theme for this guest bedroom. The daybed was designed using two antique Chinese carvings in the head and footboard. While silk fabric allows the wall hangings to become the focal point in the room.

New Idea Bedroom

The wood bolection molding around the fireplace and the unique doors into the library area are calming elements in this master suite.

This corner in a bedroom creates a comfortable spot to rest and read in the afternoon. An interesting mix of objects and color produce a warm modern sensibility. Art was hung below the window sill to be enjoyed at eye level while seated.

In this master suite the main attraction is the custom bed. Its inspiration came from an iron Moroccan candle. The bed's footboard has illuminated spires. The antique rug was the catalyst for the color scheme in the entire suite.

This bedroom is serene with a neutral palette. The wild silk, hand-knotted Tibetan rug is a luxurious texture for bare feet in the morning. A modern graphic on a primitive sign adds interest to the monochromatic color scheme.

The master bedroom suite has a custom built-in bed with pearwood bookcases on each side and a fabric headboard. Custom pearwood cabinets across the bed hide closets and a flat screen TV. Modern detailing and reupholstered antique lounge chairs complete the soothing getaway.

The custom-made English bedspread is the perfect complement to the carved four-poster bed in this traditional space. A warm Oriental carpet, large overstuffed chair and original artwork add the finishing touches.
