Opposites attract in country bedrooms when fabric-covered walls are matched with unrefined wood.
Unfinished, unpainted, unfussy and uncomplicated rough-hewn beams are hallmarks of country style. But contradictions abound when it comes to home décorating, which is why fabric on the walls looks fabulous with rustic wood. And as these two country bedrooms show — plaids rule! Something as fussy as a tufted, upholstered bed niche seems incongruously framed by split logs [top]. But I think the high-low combination works when the color scheme mixes pale gray with tones also found in the timbers.
A little-boy-blue plaid fabric was used by Anthony Baratta to upholster the walls and ceiling between the exposed beam of a two-story bedroom. Window shades, chairs, and even the lamp shade are also kitted out in the same fabric, in the 18th century style. Blue and white Delft tiles around the fireplace and a blue-painted blanket box work into the look. Here, Baratta skillfully , uses the wood beams to frame all the high-impact color and pattern and thus heighten the effect both.
