The distressed look is the in trend option out of the four and probably my pick of the bunch. The empty picture frames and asymmetrical styling works magically with its neutral distressed backdrop. The only real option furniture wise is untreated wood. Be careful not to overdo the look by adding distressed white furniture into the mix.
I am loving the stylist's work in this one. The hat box, pile of classic novels and quilted eiderdown give this modern, angular four-poster majestic grandeur.
When I look at this I hear trickling waterfalls and tropical bird noises, which is naturally dreamy. This monochrome look is organically complimented by the surrounding foliage. A truly memorizing experience.
Ornamental four-posters like this one are a child hood dream of mine... to own a four-poster bed, to have my own vegetable patch and potting shed, and to have an in and an out drive... the older I become the more distant these dreams become. For example, the in and out drive is no longer on my list, more a Victorian town house in leafy north London, which incidentally is still a very distant dream more so in terms of finances... In terms of the styling of this room, I love the vintage inspired voile canopy and antique accessories.
