A flurry of ideas for creating bedrooms as peaceful as freshly fallen snow on a winter’s day
(page 1 of 3)
Three designers throw light on their process for creating bedrooms awash in a palette of whites, creams, ivories, and more. Snuggle in … it’s hibernation season.
Who: Amy Weinstein, owner of AMW Design Studio, received a degree in interior design from Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina, and also attended Harrington College of Interior Design in Chicago. After many years as the primary designer at an established Birmingham design firm, she opened her own studio in Birmingham in 2009. “The signature qualities of warmth, comfort, serenity, and artful restraint are always present (in our designs),” Weinstein says. “I combine compatible mixes from a variety of styles to create homes that are tailored, unique, and timeless.”

“The goal for this space was to integrate classic furnishings with a slightly curvy profile,” interior designer Amy Weinstein says of this room. “We wanted to soften the hard, contemporary architecture and honor the client’s desire to have a serene and timeless bedroom furnished with classic pieces that would be restful, tranquil, and comfortable.”
