Keeping walls neutral and letting naturally stained wooden furniture and flooring make the statements in this room keep it quiet—and beautiful.
Stuck with a gray, rainy day? Never fear. With green at your windows, you can create a vision of lush, sunny groves whatever the weather. Choose a light-filtering (not light-blocking) fabric and coordinate with nature-inspired upholstery, like a chair, to make the indoors feel outdoor fresh.
We love these multicolored bed curtains. The ivory exterior makes the room feel bright and airy, while the smokey blue hue inside embraces nappers in tranquil darkness when the curtains are drawn around them.
You can't go wrong with ivory and robin's egg blue in the bedroom: It's a classically serene combo that smacks of early spring awakening.
There's a lilac hue to this beige wall paint, which feels all at once restful and modern. Dark brown and wooden accents make natural complements to this sweet space.
Despite its slanted ceiling, this attic bedroom feels open and quiet, thanks to a muted range of whites, creams, and browns.
What this room lacks in pattern and movement, it makes up for in quiet style that promises to relax and refresh guests.
This bedding's bands of white, slate, and pewter make the room feel restful.
Clean white flooring, walls, and bedding are the perfect canvas to paint on accessories in shades of dusty rose, from light pink in the window treatments, to mauve on the cushions, to plum in the artwork.
The loudest statement in this beautiful bedroom is the intricately carved wooden trunk: The rest of the space stays muted in light blues, whites, and tans.

I like the wall color, but why have a vase of flowers that's as tall as the lamp, looks out of balance to me,
