How do you see your dream bedroom? Is it a cocoon-like space where you can shut away the world? Do you envision sleeping beneath the stars, or with the skyline of the city at the foot of your bed? Whatever your fancy, chances are it’s somewhere in this collection of our favorite 88 bedrooms — take a look and see. Love platform beds? You can see them here in wood grain or white marble, covered in everything from red velvet to fat tufted quilts and brocade, to fur. Surround your bed in bookshelves, an upholstered headboard, or modern art; look up at a skylight, a beamed ceiling, or an entertainment center with sleek, modern chrome light fixtures above it or a fireplace below. Choose a neutral palette of dove gray and pure white — or indulge yourself in purple satin, golden paisleys, or Oriental prints.
Where in the house is your dream bedroom? Does it look out on a painted landscape in a Western desert, a calm infinity pool and terrace, or your lush green garden? Tuck yourself in an all-white traditional bedroom, surrounded by floor-to-ceiling white cabinets and graced by a chandelier…or sleep in a wood-paneled nook separated from the living room by only a semi-open headboard wall. Have a bedroom with its own seating area, comfy chairs and ottomans, and reading lamps — or with a modern slash of recessed light and gleaming black accent wall. Paint your walls cheery blue or set your bed behind native stone…and don’t forget the en-suite bath for complete pampering. Somewhere in these images, no doubt, is your dream boudoir: find it, and you’re that much closer to making it happen.
