Hi guys! I apologize for the radio silence over here…it’s been a little busy, but a good kind of busy! I’ve been working on a lot of fun projects lately. One in particular that I’m incredibly excited to share with you today! I’ve been keeping you all updated on the progression of this master bedroom project for months now and the time has finally come to unveil it! Remember the before photos of this room? A completely blank canvas to work with. I was so excited to put color into this space and really make it come to life.
The room is really large, with tall ceilings and a ton of natural light. The homeowners really wanted to make this room warm and luxurious. A retreat of sorts to escape to at the end of each work day. We immediately picked out paint and wallpaper. We went with a moodier palate, the darker tones pulling the room inward and making the massiveness of the space less overwhelming. We pulled up the carpet and continued the hardwood flooring that already existed throughout the main level of the home into the bedroom.
The homeowners have a taste for a mix of modern and traditional furniture, with touches of glamour. They wanted to work around their existing bedframe and linens, bedside tables and window shades. Everything else was fair game. So we brought in larger lamps for the bedside tables, a custom-made tufted chaise lounge chair in a lush, crushed purple velvet fabric from Arhaus and finished off the bed area of the room with a gorgeous shag rug from Mitchell Gold + Bob William. These few items made a huge impact to the room and really filled out the space. I had to add my love for beautiful pillows and adorned their existing bed linens with Alexandra D. Foster Italian silk pillow covers all the way from London!
We were left with a large blank wall to the right of the bed that needed an accent piece. We toyed with the idea of bringing in a sleek desk and hanging artwork but eventually decided a large bookcase would be an incredible addition to that particular wall. I found this stunning gold three-piece shelving at Ballard Designs for a great price and styled it up with sentimental books, collected artifacts and trinkets specific to the homeowners’ interests. This room was such a treat to work on!
