In this guest bedroom from the 1970s, two plaid-covered four-poster beds got some welcome energy from the yellow background of the fabric.

The colored stripes of the plaid also benefited from decorative accents elsewhere in the room.

To add a sense of depth behind the four-poster beds, the fabric was smoothed not onto the wall, but onto a wide, high panel.

The little night table was plaid, too, as were the upholstered padded chests that rested at the foot of each bed.

Pillows with punchy non-plaid patterns broke up any monotony, and wall-mounted sconces with red lampshades both gently illuminated the room at night, and added a spot of solid color.

The ceiling and vertical blinds in the windows were pure white (as was the rotary-dial telephone on the bedside table), giving the space a little breathing room.

The rug, the home’s interior designer said, was “just the color of the Blue Grotto on Capri.”
