Pretty Beds & Project Design on Friday

Here are some of my favorite beds to get you dreaming about how to make your own bed more welcoming.

Do you prefer a more neutral look for your bed?

5 Bedroom Decor Rules That Are Meant To Be Broken// canopy bed, console nightstand:

Three years in the making, the newly refreshed residence underwent structural renovations in collaboration with architect Michael Burch that included raising ceilings, adding beams, and enlarging door openings between rooms. The addition of a loftlike kitchen and family room, with huge steel-cased windows, says Smith, "completely changed the energy of the house and formed a glorious connection to the outdoors," with a direct view of the paddock and stable.
Natural textures and a light palette make for an airy master bedroom with casual flair. Bed, Martyn Lawrence Bullard. Linens, Calvin Klein Home. Jansen bench in Caldelle leather. Roman shade of World Linen fabric with Rogers & Goffigon trim.

Or a little more pattern with soft colors?
The Key to Designing the Perfect Master Bedroom:
When Annie renovated her guest room, she followed these rules: it had to be thoughtfully designed, have its own identity, and feature bold bedding.:

Or bold with plenty of punch?
Covering the walls, headboard, and bed skirt, in the same fabric — a striped Ralph Lauren Home silk — is a tried-and-true decorating solution for unifying a small room. Bedding from Leontine Linens.:

    1. Karena you are so sweet and always so supportive!! What would we do without you!!

  2. This is wonderful, Cindy!
    The reunion is this coming weekend . . . I will be immersed in Project Design with fresh coffee on Monday!

    1. Fresh coffee sounds really good right now!! Have fun at the reunion!!

  3. So pretty. I love that one with the shell pink bolster.

  4. OKAY I COPIED & PASTED the LOGO and it is only giving me a question mark!????
    ANY HINTS..........the bloggers showed up!
    Looking forward to the POSTS!I better go make my bed and get a good shot!

  5. I love it both ways - neutral and patterned. But I have to say I have a lot more patterned beddings than plain since I go crazy for some of the designs!

    1. Vel you are still young ...go for the pattern!!

  6. So nice to meet you courtesy of the Contessa... I love elements of ALL these gorgeous rooms. I would happily stay as a guest in any of them. For myself and the way I actually live at home, I alternate between a black bedspread and a deep blood red bedspread - no pattern -- because the room is filled with books and the walls, wild art (some by friends).

    It's not for everyone -- but I love it!

    1. Hi D.A
      If you have wonderful art it should be the star! I lean toward texture rather than pattern & wonderful art...what could be better!! Thank you so much for commenting. Anyone that is a friend of Elizabeth is a friend of mine!!

  7. Love all the inspiration photos Cindy! I love bold, warm, cocooning colors for my bedroom and I could be happy in most of these!!!

  8. Such pretty and dreamy rooms Cindy. I love the Project Design series and can't wait to see what you talented people come up with for us. I've got my pencil and pad (Pinterest) ready to jot down the inspiration. :-)

  9. I am favoring blue and white right now. The combination is so very restful in a bedroom—and we all need more rest1

  10. I want a metal framed canopy bed! Lovely images - see you Friday! Xo Nancy
