Lastly, we were aware that we had very limited floor space for the nightstands because we actually have a pretty small master bedroom. We opted to create DIY shelves instead of nightstands with 12-in. boards and forged steel brackets. This gives us the flexibility of sliding something under the shelf on the open floor space if needed (like a dog bed or basket for the throw pillows).
In a pre-war New York City apartment, a rich sapphire wall accentuates the expansiveness of a relatively small master. Osborne and Little’s butterfly pattern upholstery—seen on the lampshades and chair—inspired the bedroom’s overall color scheme. The custom headboard in a Schumacher fabric is flanked by hand-painted vintage Korean chests; the settee at the end of the bed is vintage and custom upholstered.
Incorporating a 2nd or 3rd light source to the bedroom can also make a huge difference. Ambient lighting can make a room feel so cozy. These budget friendly wall sconces that we added to the bedside are great. I love that these can be incorporated as a plug-in or hardwired. We kept it easy and did the plug-in method and covered the wire with a wire channel.  It’s paintable so it blends right into the wall color.
As you can see in this bedroom designed by 2LG Studio, each item is carefully chosen to work within the architectural quirks of the space. For example, the narrow bedroom table fits into the little nook perfectly, and since it's on the slimmer side, they made sure it offered plenty of drawer space for extra storage. The light patterned wallpaper, aside from brightening the room, can also introduce a fun personality.
