This bedroom’s nine-foot-tall four-poster bed was designed to get the height needed for the vaulted space. The commanding antique mantel and chimney hearth also add verticality. The cosmetic-like palette of creams, peaches, and rosy pinks was chosen for is ability to flatter. A plush armchair and ottoman provide a cozy spot for reading and relaxing by the fire.
Rustic and Refined Designer Shawn Henderson updated the living room of this 1830s colonial farmhouse in Hillsdale, New York, by painting the wood walls white but leaving the ceiling beams dark. Then he filled the space with furniture picked up at yard sales and antique stores.
