When it came to designing an apartment in a TriBeCa skyscraper, Richard Mishaan aimed for a sense of adventure. From stimulating hues to rich textures, there's no shortage of visual interest throughout the space, especially in the master bedroom. The design scheme features a custom master bed and sofa from Mishaan’s line for Theodore Alexander—both in a Maharam mohair. The bed linens are by Matouk, the armchairs are by Holly Hunt, and the Plexiglas cocktail table is by Charly Bounan. The brass pendants are by Roll & Hill, and the Willy Rizzo floor lamp is from Flair Home Collection.
For a Silicon Valley family's woodland retreat—sans the rustic implications of a cabin in the woods—architect Cynthia Wang and designer Jamie Bush conjured a completely new take on the country house that brings urban cool to Sierra, Nevada. The minimally-decorated bedrooms feature built-in wooden closets and a desk to keep from eating into the floorspace with hefty furnishings.
Now that you have the basis for your bedroom decor formed around your furniture, next is one of the most important steps. Update the Bed! Buy a new comforter, duvet, or bedspread. Better yet: Buy an entire new set complete with high thread count sheets and pillow shams. After all, you sleep here! Isn’t is worth the investment?  If you’re not able to buy an entire set, then start with one or two items. And don’t forget a soft and fluffy throw and pretty pillows! Oh, and a stunning headboard. Not in the budget? No problem, once again, DIY to the rescue! You can decorate your bedroom on the cheap, without it looking cheap!

However, most parents don't have the funds to lavishly decorate their child's bedroom, nor should you spend your hard-earned cash on furniture, bedding and decor that has inflated mark-ups and little long-lasting value.

Typically, the palette for modern rustic décor is a neutral one, heavily dependent on the warm tones of natural wood, along with lighter colors on the walls, bedding, window treatments, and accessories. This stylish ​bedroom by Metropole Architects puts a fresh twist on traditional, rustic decorating with a stunning dark blue wall. It is the perfect backdrop for the brown and blue colors used throughout the room. Another good looking trick worth stealing is the wood feature wall, which is actually wallpaper. ​
