This bedroom by Shay Ingram of Shay Interiors is a soft, sophisticated space with a little bit of sparkle.

“I love layering textures,” she says.

The bed has three levels of pillows, including puckered shams. A painting by Halifax artist Lynn Rotin was the foundation for Ingram’s palette in the space.

“It’s monochromatic but with pops of turquoise to pull out the artwork,” she says. The brown in the rug links to the painting’s darker tones. She says the metallic wallpaper is “like sunlight dappling through the trees.” The homeowner worked with Attica to pick out the furniture.

Tip: Keep things simple. If you feature interesting wallpaper, there’s no need to place something over the headboard.
