What makes this room your favourite?

The kids are rarely in the bed­room so it’s a sanc­tu­ary for me. The room holds my favourite fur­ni­ture pieces: A four­post bed, mid-cen­tury mod­ern nest­ing ta­bles, a mid-cen­tury cre­denza dresser and a mir­ror I bought at a yard sale. All the pieces are black, white or nat­u­ral woods so they’re all neu­tral colours. I like to de­sign my quilts with colour but when I dec­o­rate I use as many neu­trals as pos­si­ble be­cause I find them calm­ing. I find they make the space feel un­clut­tered.

The in­spi­ra­tion

I have an ar­chi­tec­tural back­ground. A lot of my in­spi­ra­tion comes from the clean lines I use in my draw­ing. Ar­chi­tects gen­er­ally draw with black and white—the clean­li­ness of that kind of com­mu­ni­ca­tion trans­lates into a space for me.

Key de­tails

The tall posts on our bed used to be at­tached to the head- and foot­boards. We couldn’t fit the bed up the stairs of our old house so we had them cut by a car­pen­ter to screw back into place. Now there’s a piece in the mid­dle where they con­nect that’s stained to match the other pieces in our room. It ties the mod­ern black canopy bed in with the mid-cen­tury pieces—it was a so­lu­tion to a prob­lem that ac­tu­ally makes the whole space work.
