There’s something alluring about midtown style, and you’ll be happy to know you don’t have to be bound by the location to achieve it. This effortless look is truly a state of mind, mixing and matching upscale elements with urban pieces. The idea of melding two different styles may seem like a challenge, but we’re here to make it a piece of cake.
We’ve simplified midtown styling by curating a look that centers around rustic-industrial pieces, refined by classy, sophisticated elements. As we go through a bedroom step by step, you’ll see how minor details can make all the difference.
Make the Most of a Small Space
If you happen to live midtown, you’re probably living in a smaller space. But, keep in mind, it’s less about the size of a space and more about how you accentuate what you have. In a smaller bedroom, consider pieces that pull double duty, like beds with built-in storageOpens in a new window.
As for other storage options, we love styling with the Sommerford collection. The bedOpens in a new window, nightstandOpens in a new window, dresserOpens in a new window and chest of drawersOpens in a new window all offer plentiful space with a streamlined design.
Stick With Neutrals
Neutrals help keep a space light, open and airy. It’s the ideal color palette for refined versatility, and our styled picks quell all notions of it ever being “boring”. Neutrals also give you the opportunity to play with textures and patterns. For example, beautiful pieces like the Dilanne vaseOpens in a new window add interesting dimension without being overwhelming.
If you want to go bolder, try gold or silver metallic accent pieces for a well-placed pop that doesn’t stray too far from classic neutrals.
Hang it Up
