28 tranquil all-white bedrooms


Who doesn’t long for a bedroom that acts like a lullaby? If you’re sleep-challenged—isn’t everyone these days?—consider creating your own cloud chamber. Fans of all-white bedrooms use words like “tranquil,” “blank slate,” “no distractions,” and “Zen” to describe the appeal. There’s also an automatic tidy look that comes with opting for all white: a single color creates cohesion and, like a T-shirt, can stylistically go in any direction.

Too much etherealness, however, can be chilly and soporific (not necessarily in a good way). The key to a successful all-white approach is to introduce texture, slip in subtle patterns or varying shades of pale, and to accessorize with books, art, plants—or simply a wonderful view. Here are 27 standouts that demonstrate the great versatility of all white.

The Ultimate Wooden Beds by Pinch of London


Russell Pinch and Oona Bannon design what they call “considered furniture.” For years now, we’ve been fans of the couple’s London studio, Pinch, and recently took note of their Christo line of very inviting wooden beds that look like refined versions of classic children’s book illustrations come to life. They’re also seemingly sized for the three bears: there’s a single, queen-size, and four poster.

The Christo Single Bed in American black walnut is paired here with other Punch designs, including the Lana Dressing Table and Harlosh Bedside Table.

Of the Christo silhouettes, the couple say: “Shapes that are too dominant create a needy mood and convey a ‘look at me’ vibe that feels too self-conscious for rooms we want to relax in. One-note simplicity, on the other hand, risks being too beige. So in this case, we drew, modeled, redrew and remodeled until we were happy that the piece had stature and elegance while also feeling comfortable with itself.”

The frames are also offered in European oak with a white oil finish. This Christo Bed is UK king size (which is the equivalent of an American queen.)

Oona cryptically tells us that the name of the line, “riffs on Julie Christie with a bit of informal grandeur thrown in. It sounds like a sweet nickname for a favorite godson.”

“Their furniture is both classic and simple with a contemporary overlay,” we wrote in our first post about Pinch Design back in 2009.

Cottage Chic: Stylish, Artful Beds from an Unlikely Source


I’ve always admired Maine Cottage‘s brightly hued wood furniture (their tagline is “where color lives”) but generally thought of it as the Lily Pulitzer of furniture companies: great for a traditional beach house or preppy country cottage but not really my style. Recently, though, I found myself perusing their website and found their offerings to be fresher and more appealing than I’d remembered, particularly their beds.

Here are some favorites, all solid wood and available in a variety of colors and sizes.

The Low Tide Day Bed, shown in Pear, is $

Steal This Look: A Characterful Bedroom in Veracruz, Mexico


A while back we profiled Maison Couturier, a 19th-century estate turned hotel in San Rafael, Veracruz. We’re still drawn to the bedrooms; you too? Here are some ideas for re-creating the look.

The estate is made up of limewashed walls and original brick floors. The mix of vintage decor is a nod to the French immigrants who built the estate in 33. Photograph courtesy of Maison Couturier.
