One great fabric sparked this great idea for a four-poster bedroom — the unglazed chintz dominant, used to the nines on the bed, windows and walls.
Designed back in 1971, this room’s decor doubled in impact by its reflection in a ceiling pavement of mirror tiles — the inspiration of interior designer Bebe Winkler.
An updating of a traditional chintz, recalling Asian-flowered calicoes, printed in plum, gold and apricot, suggested an innovative use in this contemporary bedroom.
The center of attention was the fabric-covered four-poster bed — which was not really a four-poster at all, but a carpenter-built frame of four-by-fours placed over a mattress and box spring.
A pile of cushions pinch hit for a headboard in this DIY four-poster bed decor scheme.
Shirred along a wall, fabric backdropped two white campaign chests; at the window, as draperies, the material is lined and edged with mango gold.
Brass chests and accessories accentuated the Asian style, and the whole scene repeated in a ceiling of stick-on mirror tile, which also lent height to the room.
