In this photo you can get a feel for how busy a child’s room can be and how out of place a fancy scrolled Victorian bed would look. Instead…..this decorator selected one of the simplest iron beds she could find to give definition to the mattress and quilts.
Metal beds don’t have to be scrolled and fancy to give you the effect a busy room needs. The best bed for a busy room is an one that doesn’t fight for attention with the other great furnishings in a busy room.
Also…….a great old distressed “finish” can bring a simple bed to life. It can accent the castings and help the plainest of beds stand on it’s own.
