Do you make the bed everyday?  We admit, we don’t always…but we do appreciate the way a well made and well dressed bed looks.  Here are some of our favorite beds from the Tracery portfolio:



For this home in Watersound, Florida, Paige selected a bold chocolate and white fabric for the headboard.  She paired it with graceful glass lamps topped with chocolate painted shades.  A chocolate brown linen coverlet and skirt ground all of the fun fabrics at the top of the bed and a neutral rug ties the whole look together.



Crisp but simple white bedding is punctuated by shots of bright green in this Alys Beach, Florida home.  The custom green linen headboard and four bright pillows is all it took to make this bed fresh and unique.



The pale blue color scheme of this Master Bedroom retreat in Auburn, Alabama is reflected in this display of bedding.  Elegant floral euro pillows create a strong foundation for the bed while a series of rolled pillows keep things comfortable.  A simple white silk coverlet completes the composition.



Everyone always loves this Guest Bedroom we designed for a home at Alys Beach.  We again started with a foundation of simple white bedding–this time with white headboards too, but then added very colorful quilts and shams.  Our favorite recycled aluminum side table serves as a fun nightstand.



Sometimes one pillow is all  you need to make a statement.  For this Guest Room in a Mountain Brook, Alabama home, Paige and Doug designed this giant neckroll and had it upholstered in the same fabric that makes up the bed’s coverlet.  A linen tufted headboard completes this room’s serene and restful feeling.



Fresh greens and browns make this Watersound, Florida bedroom feel fun and bright.  The striped roman shades complete the look.  When beds have to go in front of windows, we find that a open metal headboard can work well to allow light to still come in the room.



We spruced up this Birmingham, Alabama Master Bedroom with a new diamond-quilted coverlet and then added creamy leather hassock stools to the foot of the bed.  The peaceful monochromatic scheme of the space is enlivened by a richly colored rug.



When the owners of this Mountain Brook, Alabama home asked us to design a room for some very special overnight guests–their grandchildren–we responded with tall custom headboards upholstered in a citron green velvet on linen damask.  Cuddly taupe blankets warm up the foot of the bed and fun pillows embroidered with subtle dove silouhettes add another punch of color.  The windows are treated with a roll-up citron green roman shade that filters soft light into the room, and then with a room darkening linen shade above that.

  1. Each room is beautiful in its own way. The twinbeds with colorful quilts and recycled aluminum tables are really fun! But the guest room in Bham with the matching neckroll is so elegant. Well done, Tracery.
