After a hectic day, an all-white bedroom is a soothing getaway; serene expanses of white walls and linens invite you to clear your mind and relax without distractions. These spaces from the AD archives are soothing all right, but they certainly aren’t wallflowers. Luxe layers, shapely furniture, and attention-grabbing objects make these neutral bedrooms dream-worthy destinations.
