We’re crazy for a neutral bed that still manages to look exciting and inviting, rather than hotelesque. This one, from Annie’s all-new Gradation design world, is a design superstar for a bunch of reasons, starting with its effortless mix of eye-popping patterns that create visual interest without tipping the scales into overload. With its combination of fabrics that are richly textured, vintage-inspired (get a load of that kantha-syle coverlet and pillows!), and elegantly modern (we’re looking at you, gorgeous grey matelassé shams) it has a sumptuous, timeless look. And those contrasting white sheets and complementary matelassé coverlet in a shade reminiscent of sand dunes? They give a shot of lightness to the bed without pulling focus away from the center-stage elements.
With linens this luxe and detailed, Annie chose one of her favorite paint colors, the subtle Half Silver Dollar by Benjamin Moore, for the walls. She repurposed a steel door turned up on salvage-warehouse trip as a headboard (if there isn’t such a resource in your area, try a metal bed frame with a solid headboard, like the one below). Finally, she added a symmetrical arrangement of foam acoustic tiles to the wall as a piece of art. Simple, relaxed, and not at all overthought—the perfect way to approach bedroom decorating.
