Vote For Your Favorite Bedroom

by hookedonhouses on January 20, 2009

On Election Day back in November, I had you vote for your favorite kitchen. Today I thought we’d take another vote–this time for our favorite bedroom. All of these shown here were designed by Phoebe Howard, whose work has been featured in multiple magazines. Take a look at these 6 bedrooms that she decorated and then tell us which one’s you’re favorite!

Bedroom #2: Turquoise

Bedroom #3: Lavender

Bedroom #4: Brown

Bedroom #5: Navy

Bedroom #6: White

Which one would you most want to sleep in?

I love that navy bedroom and it seems so do alot of other people….


Mary Beth January 20, 2009 at 8:35 pm

I normally pick pink…then turquoise…then white…but I really liked all of the elements of the brown bedroom and kept coming back to that one. They are all beautiful, though. I can’t wait to see which room “wins”.

I’m in love with the brown room.

I love the brown one… I can truly see myself slipping into those sheets! Ahhhh.

Oh, the things I would do for the pink bedroom. It contains all of the things I love, but my husband refuses to let me have. Those darn husbands. It took an act of God to get him to agree to the toile we have now.

OK, I love all of them- except for the turquoise room. Which is a bummer because I love turquoise. I voted brown but I think they’re all spectacular.

LURRRVE the brown room! I’m ready to jump into that cozy bed with a good book and ignore the rest of the world!

I hope my gravatar comes up to prevent anyone getting the wrong idea as to my masculinity..I have a beard!

But I have to say it’s the turqouse room! It’s the color more than the patterns for me, but I like the tropical feel of the room. In fact, this makes me laugh, I turned my head and looked at our room (my WIFE, Kim and I’s) and it’s very similar… more of a blue though.

I also love the V-joint siding used to panel the back wall…nice touch!

Anyway…I’m working on a post that has a picture of my favorite color scheme in it…up in an hour or so.

I love the pink…and could absolutely see myself in it!! If it weren’t for the fact that I recently re-did the entire Master Bedroom Suite in blues and gold…I wouldn’t wait! Tom would agree to anything that makes me happy…he likes PINK!!!

Hi Julia.

Love them all, but if I have to pick I think I would choose pink!

Hi Julia, I like several of these a lot, but I think I like the white the best. It looks sooo soothing to me. :-)

Bedroom #3 and bedroom #5 are actually in Phoebe Howard’s store in Atlanta, Max & Company. it is an amazing store – three levels – with the most beautiful architectural finishes. Everything is available for sale off the floor. Walking through provides endless inspiration.

#6 is a bedroom in Howard’s Atlanta home.

My favorite – #3. The symmetry and soothing colors really appeal.

I am not a ‘pink’ person, but the pink room just looked so pretty and soothing that I went out on a limb and voted for it!

Hard to pick just one. But after staring and drooling I had to go with the lavender. I didn’t notice the color at first…it was the lines that drew me in.

maya | springtree road January 20, 2009 at 11:34 pm

hmmmm…i don’t love the whole of any of them. i’d have to pick the brown or the navy if i want my husband to sleep there with me (that would be nice, right?). i really love the pictures in the navy room.

I surprised myself by picking the navy room. Normally, I would always go turquoise. But I think it was the pillows and the paneling on the walls that did it for me here. Great one:) January 21, 2009 at 12:55 am

I think I want to change my vote. Hanging chad… demand recount. After further consideration…I’d like to go with Navy please!’s last blog post..Lighting: A Key to Creating an Environment

Turquoise is my favorite color but this bedroom looks rather cold to me. I LOVE all of the softness and detail in the pink room.
Pink for me!

jen@Balancing Beauty and Bedlam January 21, 2009 at 8:38 am

I went with the pink only because I am thinking of what to do for my daughters’ bedrooms, and I love this.

RehabOrDie January 21, 2009 at 10:33 am

Well, I almost selected “None of the Above” but the brown one was the best of the lot. I’m just not smitten with any of them. White’s too formal and I hate Blue. Lavender is too “girly” (though not too bad otherwise), I just couldn’t tolerate the turquoise room…I grew up on the 60′s and 70′s. The pink one is also too “girly” but also that night stand has to go.

All my very subjective taste. I like very warm rooms generally and bedrooms more so.

Emily@remodelingthislife January 21, 2009 at 10:48 am

I voted turquoise – and am in the minority :) I really love the tongue and groove paneling in that room and the white with contrasting blue. I could never live with those dark brown walls in the brown room no matter how much I love the other elements.

Linda@Lime in the Coconut January 21, 2009 at 10:51 am

For pure cozy-ability factor…I had a hard time deciding between the white, turq, or lavender….ended up going with lavender (which looks more greyish on my monitor)

Fun vote, Julia!

Liz January 21, 2009 at 10:58 am

I need more polychromatic choices. One and two color schemes make me cranky.

Marie Louise January 21, 2009 at 11:10 am

OMG – they’re all so scrumptious. I can’t decide between the pink or the turquoise! Love the mirrored side table though so had to go pink. It’s such a delicate color too – like a “ballet pink”. I see that brown is ahead – I like it, but it’s been over done and I’m over it. Great post!

I actually like the lavendar the most because of the couch at the end of the bed and then voted white because i knew there’s no way i would paint my room lavendar…but it is so muted that I think I would like it. It’s almost a gray lavendar color. Hmmm….maybe i should do it!

Jenny January 21, 2009 at 11:46 am

Those are pretty rooms! I like the pink room the best. It looks so relaxing!

Amy @ Living Locurto January 21, 2009 at 12:53 pm

I wish I could get away from brown, but I just love the simplicity of that room. It’s so crisp and makes me feel like I’m in a fancy hotel on vacation. The pink was my second choice. It’s so Paris chic!

Mike January 21, 2009 at 2:43 pm

I have to go with the Navy because a) I love the hardwood and b) I love the wainscoting and c) blue is my favorite color and d) it’s the most masculine of the designs (I think).

Rhoda January 21, 2009 at 3:32 pm

It was between turquoise & brown for me, but I voted for the first one. They are all beautiful.

Kristen @ More Than Mulberries January 21, 2009 at 5:02 pm

I voted the pink one – but if I were paying attention to my husband concerning my vote – it would be the brown one. But he’s at work not bloggin at home eating popcorn like me, so I vote PINK!

Sara January 21, 2009 at 5:10 pm

I was torn, I loved the turquoise (I think b/c it made me feel like summer might be around the bend) but ultimately the bed in the lavender won me over.

laura @ the shore house January 21, 2009 at 5:21 pm

It’s funny…I pick “pink room” to *sleep* in, because that bed looks so comfy! But that would be a visit-sleep-in (like at a hotel). Pink and mirrors wouldn’t suit my taste. So I pick “brown room” to *live* in. I’d order up that room pretty much as-is for the shore house.:-)

Even though my bedroom is all white, I am drawn to that pink one. It’s a bit glam but very serene. January 22, 2009 at 12:50 am

I’m a brown girl. I love the rug. I also like the orange throw, but if it were mine, I might introduce another splash of color somewhere–something else unexpected.’s last blog post..George W. Bush Trades the White House for Dallas Digs

I love the pink bedroom! That is definitely how I would want my room done if I had the money. :)

Kellye January 22, 2009 at 6:28 pm

I had to go with pink, because “my” colors are black, white, gray & pink. I also love the mirrored nightstand. Otherwise, it’s a bit too girly.

The brown is symmetrical and has a fabulous rug, but I HATE brown.

Sue January 22, 2009 at 10:40 pm

All gorgeous..Grace loves the pink room! (Surpise!) I adore that brown one., I would feel so cozy, wrapped in chocolate! Gorgeous!

I chose the navy, not for the navy wall, but for the gorgeous white panels. Colourwise I prefer the chocolate, but I wouldn’t want to be without the gorgeous floor of the navy room. I can always change the colours, ones it’s mine? ;)

Just to let you know I really enjoy your Hooked on party, but this week I am not participating, I have been feeling terribly low and have decided to take a vacation for the world. I am just browsing now with a cup of coffee and *off course* that includes visiting you here.

Have a great weekend!

Hello Julia!
I know that I really should choose that brown room – it IS the most striking….however, I’ve got this turqouise thing going on at the moment {anything that color calls out and makes me get it!} So….I had to do it – so fresh & pretty…..not to mention a really Happy color in this mass of white we find ourselves in!

Happy Birthday to you & your blog too!!

I think they are all very pretty, but none of them are my “style” which leans toward a cottagey/european look. When I see rooms like those, it makes me wish I had a more sophisticated style. Oh well…while it’s pretty to look at, I couldn’t live in it.
The turquoise room is just stunning.

jeweledrabbit January 24, 2009 at 5:21 pm

I’m a freak for anything purple, but I don’t like the lavender room. I don’t like navy blue as a rule, but I like the navy blue bedroom the best. Go figure. LOL

christy January 25, 2009 at 4:28 pm

I would LOVE to sleep in that pink bedroom. Heaven on earth.

Donna @ An Enchanted Cottage January 26, 2009 at 6:21 pm

Oh my goodness, I thought the turquoise bedroom was so cheerful!! I’m so surprised that it came in last… The pink and turquoise were my favorites, with the turquoise taking the lead! They’re all beautiful though!… Donna

The pink one is very pretty, but overall, feels very cool. To me, warm works better in a bedroom. It’s somehow more relaxing. I love the brown bedroom.

I looooove the brown. But my second choice would definitely be the lavender.

Just found this page and I prefer the brown bedroom. Understated elegance and a place I could really unwind in at the end of a hard day. Nice article.
