Frank de Biasi, Frank de Biasi Interiors

New York-based designer Frank de Biasi has a colorful and diverse portfolio that often incorporates a global ambiance. In this bedroom he created an ethnic sanctuary with a custom canopy bed and layers of diverse patterns sprinkled over the entire area.

Frank’s Tip: “Splurge on the bed – a great antique bed or something custom designed for the room can really anchor the space and set the tone for the design and accessories.”

Designer Kriste Michelini likes to take a very calm, streamlined approach when decorating a bedroom. Here she keeps it clean and simple with no patterns–just textures in muted hues. We love how the sheer window treatments soften the sun’s rays without blocking out the light entirely.

Kriste’s Tip: “Serenity is the first thing I think of for a master bedroom. Less is more in this room. I always source nightstands with storage so you can tuck everything away, making it a clean space. In addition, choose a soothing paint color and finish with dreamy window treatments to create a sanctuary.”

Lisa Staprans, Staprans Design

Waking up in this room designed by Lisa Staprans would be a delight! She uses organic materials like warm wood furniture that complement the ceiling, as well as tranquil, textured fabrics to create a zen look that is in touch with nature.

Lisa’s Tip: “Make sure the bed has a view out of a window, colors that are calming, no TV, all lighting in dimmers and GREAT bedding. Your bedroom should be your sanctuary.”
