As you can see in this bedroom designed by 2LG Studio, each item is carefully chosen to work within the architectural quirks of the space. For example, the narrow bedroom table fits into the little nook perfectly, and since it's on the slimmer side, they made sure it offered plenty of drawer space for extra storage. The light patterned wallpaper, aside from brightening the room, can also introduce a fun personality.
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.
Mirrors perform several important functions in a bedroom. They let you check your appearance before you head out the door in the morning. They also bounce light—daylight or lamplight—around a space, which can make a dark bedroom brighter and livelier. If the mirror above a bed faces a blank wall or something rather drab, hang it at a slight angle, tilted out from the wall and it will reflect the colorful bedding below instead.

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.
