Author and interiors stylist Hilary Robertson believes our beds should be lavished with as much attention as our personal wardrobes. "Your bed deserves its own wardrobe," says the jetsetting author of Nomad at Home, a new volume combining travel inspiration with sumptuous interiors.
While much attention is paid to keeping our clothing au courant, many of us overlook the most sacred and frequently used area of our homes. Robertson, who brings global eclecticism to contemporary design, regularly reinvents the look and feel of the bedroom in her historic Brooklyn townhouse.
And of course, the bed is the focal point. “Whether you dress it up or dress it down, the bed can take on myriad moods and aesthetics throughout the year," explains Robertson, giving Margot a lesson in bedroom versatility by easily recasting her bedroom with four elegant variations.
Let the outdoors inspire your interiors. A moody palette, which reflects leaves turning from green to rust, combines three complementary colors; moss green, cedar and deep teal.

Fresh striped linen transforms the bedroom into a bright and airy oasis. The brown is an unexpected alternative to blue and a thinner stripe adds sophistication.

In my book, pink is a neutral. A dusty shade teams well with other pastels like blue and gray and an abstract cotton throw brings it all together with a painterly flourish.
When in doubt layer! Darker hues in shades of petrol, steel and olive are layered, setting the stage for a dramatic and comfortable cocoon.
