Cottage-Style Bedroom

The average person spends around 8 hours each day in the bedroom—yet it often lags behind the kitchen, the bathroom, and even the living room when it comes to getting some decorating TLC. Not so with this master bedroom, which is featured in the new book Coming Home (Rizzoli). "It was top priority because it has such great light," says Terry Pylant of Atlanta-based Historical Concepts, which designed the space. The result is a cheerful, sun-dappled room with furnishings that are full of character, down to the very last detail. To wit, nailhead trim bedecks an upholstered headboard and a leather ottoman, vibrant accents highlight an updated wing chair's angles, and an intricate matelasse quilt graces the bed. Colors inspired by the home's coastal location—sky-blue walls and pops of red-orange that evoke a sunset—top off the look. Read on for ways to create a similarly fresh space in your home.
