Add Purposeful Joy to Bedrooms

Heather tried an indoor swing in the kitchen but says it was too crazy in an active zone. Here, in daughter Pierce’s room, it makes an enticing reading nook.

Warm textures, like wicker, velvet, and distressed wood, help a sparsely furnished space feel soft and friendly.
