Dramatic bedrooms!

Make your bedroom a sanctuary with some drama! I love a four poster or great headboards to make a bedroom a place you want to spend more time in than just sleeping.

 Elle Decor - Designer: Sig Bergamin

The designer Sig Bergamin used a wonderful carved Balinese bed to make a statement in this bedroom. Curl up, read, and relax in a cocoon! 

House Beautiful - Designer Jonathan Berger

The designer Jonathan Berger was inspired by an 18th century Venetian bed to create this dramatic headboard. I love the scrolls. 

This 15 foot tall Venetian painted and parcel gilt bed is included in the next Stair Galleries auction in Hudson, NY on September 14th. It's Lot 61 and has an auction estimate of $2,000 - $4,000. This would be a fabulous statement piece, and so much fun to sleep in! Obviously need a room with a tall ceiling - think loft.

This simple but elegant 19th century Beidermeier bed is such a wonderful shape. I would almost perfer it sideways against a wall to allow the birch wood to be seen in all it's glory. I would also reuplster this one in a darker color to offset the light birch color. This sold at a Christie's auction for $750 off an auction estimate of $600 - $800.
Talking drama! This is a late 19th century Italian marquetry bed, and would make quite a statement. This sold at a Christie's auction for $5,000 off an auction estimate of $2,000 - $3,000. Obviously caught the attention of the bidders!

This walnut American Renaissance Revival half tester would take all the attention in a room! It says it all. This sold at a New Orleans auction for $1,168 off an auction estimate of $700 - $1,000. 

A dramatic bedroom is all about the bed. Choose a four poster, a half tester, or just a dramatic headboard. Pile it high with comfy pillows, and  crawl in to read, work, and even to sleep!
