This manorial bedroom — mellow, comforting, reviving a look of 18th-century French country house dignity — is a reminder that even a large room may need no more than a few pieces of furniture, if those pieces are important in scale and design quality.

The high, solid headboard of the canopy bed and the two armoires placed side by side seemed to panel the room, to “furnish” it with the patina of cherry wood and the pattern of their scroll carving.

When decorating this 1970s yellow & green bedroom, interior designer June A Tedder used two fabrics almost architecturally.

First, she used a textured lemon cotton for the fitted coverlet, bed valance, and the formal lambrequin that framed the window. The color matched the room’s yellow shag carpeting perfectly.

Second, green-ground French floral print was employed to cover the outsize Bergere, to skirt the bed and underskirt the valance, and, as an effective surprise, to glass-curtain the window. (Fabric workmanship in a sparsely-furnished room must be impeccable.)
