Over the past two weeks, I shared modern and eclectic ways to style Fracture’s sleek glass prints in a bedroom. This final look takes the modern wall art to an unexpected place with a traditional setting. Fractures feel quite contemporary since they’re frameless, but they give a traditional room a bit of edge and some subtle sophistication, if you ask me. I love mixing styles, because matchy-matchy everything gets pretty boring after a while. To help the Fractures pair well with the traditional bed, I kept the arrangement straightforward and hung them horizontally as a classic triptych.

I used traditional bed linens with European shams and brought in my bed’s nailhead headboard. I also threw on some silk floral pillows from west elm and a Trina Turk lumbar pillow (you may have spied in my ORC design) to bring a cool color to the bed. To add some traditional wood and wicker to the mix, I placed a basket under the vintage side table, and used a simple glass table lamp beside the bed. I lean towards a cooler palette, so my take on a traditional room leaned more heavily on bright whites, blue, and green from the prints to balance the creamier bedding.

In the end, this traditional set-up felt the most serene to me. The room stayed bright, but the luxurious bedding and layers of pillows made it feel cozy as well! I also love having the height and weight of a traditional table lamp beside the bed, and having easy access to a warm blanket with a stylish storage option under the table. Now that I’ve shared all three bedroom styles (see the modern and eclectic posts), which one is your favorite?
