Good Questions: Modern Bedroom Help!

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,
My in-laws have been kind enough to offer to purchase bedroom furniture for my husband and myself. They want us to buy a “bedroom set” that we will use throughout the rest of our marriage. Problem is, I dislike matchy – matchy furniture sets.

I’m trying to put together combinations of good-quality pieces that relate to each other without matching the whole room. The Room & Board Portica Canopy bed is a contender, paired with the Calvin five-and six-drawer dressers in Mocha finish. We’re also fans of the Lexington bed from R&B. We don’t yet have a color scheme, but love dark warm-grays, pale blues, and printed Dwell linens as potential accents. Our style is modern, but I’d love to warm it up a la the “boutique hotel” look in Vanessa’s (from Turquoise) home.

Any suggestions on the combination mentioned above, or any others? Any ideas of night stands or tables that would coordinate well?

Thanks so much!

Laura- I really like the idea of mixing different materials together ie wood and steel. I like the canopy bed you chose that could look great with these side tables from West Elm or these from Jonathan Adler. Adding some Plush Living sheets and some floor to ceiling drapes and maybe throwing in a vintage mid century chandelier would look hot!
Anyone else?
