Stylized blossoms centered in twined hearts — in fabric form — swept over walls, bedspreads, curtains, and window shades in this pretty 1960s dormer bedroom.
When the homeowners renovated this attic room, the homeowners used a one-color-plus-white scheme that unified the melange of furniture and rickrack of white angled ceiling beams.
In this sunny bedroom, the primary color was yellow with a touch of olive. The fabric pattern was borrowed from a mosaic in Sicily’s Monreale Cathedral, while the exotic archers and animals of the rug were inspired by an ancient tapestry.
In a clever touch, a bed canopy was hung on the attic’s dormer window, doing double duty as a window treatment and bed decor. (PS: Don’t miss the cat sculpture attached to the wall above the canopy, right near the peak of the ceiling!)
Clear glass lamp bases with white shades provided illumination as needed, but paired perfectly with the rest of this bedroom’s decor.
On the far side of the room, the old radiator was hidden by painting it the same color as the walls, then by masking it with a nest of white tables.
An old bentwood settee, with quadruple seats and Romanesque lines, was stationed at the foot of the bed on top of a fringed rug in an olive yellow that matched the color of the walls.
The room’s only bonus color was a rosy pink, used for the bed’s throw pillows and some of the room’s tabletop accessories.
