Dark interiors are brought to life with the addition of clean white bedding and linens. Floral details on the shams and duvet serve as a rustic compliment to the raw oak in the exposed support beam and dry-stacked hearth with stones that could otherwise be bulky and cold. Additional feminine details like the painted, antique chest at the edge of the bed, aged chandelier lend themselves to creating a comforting cottage appeal.
An early-1800s Southern rope bed features a headboard that can be removed or be hooked into an upright position, ostensibly to encourage air circulation in summer and to block drafts in winter. Pine shutters serve as a neutral counterpoint and perfect pair for the rooms, aging green-painted walls. Ornate touches are limited to an elegant, antique light fixture in order to compliment but not overtake the quiet feel of the room.
In the master bedroom, a vintage French sewing cabinet doubles as a headboard. The motor-court sign was discovered at a local antique show and serves as an eye-catching and whimsical focal point around which additional seating and light fixtures are placed.
Create a one-of-a-kind setting and show how much you care about your animals with grace and just a touch of humor. A handsomely carved c. 1905 English bed found helps create a cozy feel in the master bedroom; balloon shades soften the double-hung windows. The bed had been fitted with a patchwork pinwheel quilt and is adorned with whimsical needlepoint pillows featuring various dog breeds.
An antique quilt rests on an aged blanket chest; and old ticking fabric covers the lampshade; netting forms a delicate canopy on the 19th-century mahogany American bed and gossamer curtains from Pine Cone Hill are at the windows.

Beautiful cream traditional bathroom.
Though you have a big bathroom like this, storage solution will also be an important problem. Building a floor-to-ceiling storage and sink unit gives you more space.
Think ergonomics when you design your floor-to-ceiling storage. Allocate drawers just above the countertop for small essentials you use every day.
Glass-door upper cabinets let you control what to display and what to disguise.
This small drawer is ideal for storing perfumes away from potentially damaging sunlight and the risk of accidental spills.
