Rethink the headboard
A decal takes the place of a typical headboard, and adds a graphic quality against the charcoal walls.

In this tiny bedroom, uncluttered but useful built-in shelving reaches for the ceiling; the peaked roof keeps the room from feeling cramped despite its small square footage. Cherrywood furnishings and lots of white keep the look clean and modern.

Let there be light
Vaulted ceilings and a brick wall (dividing the bedroom from the closet) that doesn’t extend to the ceiling give this master bedroom its airy quality. Natural light streams through the wide doorway to the bathroom.

Go for bold
Modern doesn’t need to mean stark: This room is enlivened by Vivienne Westwood tartan wallpaper from Cole & Son, which covers one wall behind the bed. The rest of the room is kept simple—white and gray—to prevent pattern overload.

Get creative with storage
To maximize storage in this small master bedroom, the homeowners fitted a series of IKEA cabinets together and faced them with wood for a warm modern look.

Add a glam element
It’s a room divider! It’s a headboard! The wall covered in a gold gingko print gives this bedroom a focal point (and hides a closet). The neutral bedding and streamlined furnishings keep the look contemporary.
