Design a bedroom that's just made for sweet dreaming and relaxation! Whether it's your own personal retreat; the master suite; a comfy nursery; teen hideout, or guest room, here's how to make it great. Take advantage of fabrics applications; focus on unexpected pleasures that delight the eye (like a grouping of antique frames); and express your individual taste, from airily romantic to richly dramatic. You'll even learn tricks for transforming unusually shaped spaces--like sloping attic bedrooms-into something special!

Signature Piece

A fine antique of noble proportions, like a tall, glass-fronted secretary desk, would ordinarily command an important wall of the living room or study. Yet its presence in a paneled bedroom sets a stately tone for the whole chamber, a place for thoughtful hours amid treasured books. Any large piece, from a French armoire to a Chinese chest, can add unique distinction to the bedroom, and suggest other choices that will do it honor.

A Room Aglow

Why should glorious candelabras be confined to the dining room alone? Does it take a stormy night and a power failure to bring the magic of candlelight into the bedroom?

A nostalgic chamber, with floral rug and handpainted chests, seems made for the mystery of candlelight.

Bring flowers, too, or fragrant candles, be bride and groom again in a room aglow. For it hasn't fire been forever the symbol of love?

Here are textures worthy of a candle's warm glance: damask sheets, crocheted throw, lacy dust ruffle, and sheer bed curtains loosely draped.

In an old Victorian house, the white bed floats in reflections off the varnished wainscotting. Beauty, too, is a passion worth honoring. So light the candles, and let it snow.
