You can use paint to add color or neutral serenity to a room, but you can also use it to create decorative effects on the walls. For vivid character, mark off a geometric pattern, such as stripes in two or more colors, a checkerboard, or harlequin diamonds. Paint a whimsical freehand design of your own creation, or use a stencil to accurately render shapes and motifs. Or, choose from the many paint effects that can put suede, denim, faux-bois, or chamois texture on the walls.
A Miami Beach getaway designed by Lee F. Mindel is a lesson in decorating with color. Benjamin Moore’s vibrant Cool Aqua pairs well with headboard, in a Link Textiles fabric, along with pops of crisp white. to finish the look, Mindel settled on custom bedding by E. Braun & Co., Oluce lamps from MSK Illuminations, and Design Within Reach nightstands.
A common sight in a bedroom is one large art print sitting squarely above the headboard. An eye-catching wall hanging such as this gives prominence to the bed, creating an important focal point in the room. However, above-the-headboard art doesn't have to be a single large piece. When grouped together in similar or cohesive frames, a collection of photographs (nature scenes or family snapshots) or smaller works of art also draws the eye to the bed.
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.
