mix & mashup: bedrooms.

mix & mashup: bedrooms.


If there was a time before design magazines and inspirational interior spreads, we don’t want to know about it. We’re so lucky to be living and decorating in a time where the options are nearly limitless, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still some drawbacks. The biggest of which is, of course, that the options are nearly limitless, and we’re prone to overactive imaginations.

One of the spots that capture our creative ruminations over and over again is the bedroom. From contemporary—like the bedroom of this Calabasas, California, home by architects Trevor Abramson and Douglas Teiger above, with its oversized photograph by Caesar Lima—to transitional, and beach-house chic to traditional and opulent, we have a hard time deciding what we would pick to set the tone for our own late-night dreaming. What style are you leaning toward?

The bedroom in this Chicago high-rise by designer Gary Lee embraces the best of transitional décor with an upholstered bed by Barbara Barry for Baker and a Dessin Fournir armchair.

Avian-themed wallpaper from Gracie gives this super traditional guest bedroom in Chicago by Richard Gibbons a bit of refined whimsy.

Wow that last room is simply beautiful! Gorgeous for a lake or beach home! The blue is so fresh and calming, and the pops of yellow are playful. Love it.
