My clients have such a beautiful home. Their master bedroom was the last room to be completed, and it now flows seamlessly with the rest of the gorgeous house. Finally, it was time for the parents to treat themselves to the master bedroom they've always wanted!
Before, we had a queen sized bed that was just too small - scale wise & for their family! Dated window treatments hung under the dormer windows, which didn't provide the light blockage needed (this room gets a TON of daylight). Bedding & lighting were needed to add a better sense of style & design.
The only existing furniture that stayed was the dresser, bureau and mirror (which we flipped on its side in order to fit in with the scale of the room). A new king sized bed was added, along with a great tufted, leather upholstered headboard (i.e. easy to clean with little kids jumping around!). We wanted a combination of masculine and feminine elements and this was successfully achieved. Dramatic, glam crystal column lamps sit nicely beside the gridded headboard, soft color blocked bedding and dark accent pieces.
Adding a large rug was perhaps one of the most important steps in the room design. Rugs help ground large rooms and keep it from feeling like the furniture is just floating around the space. If that makes sense (it does in my mind!). We selected this GORGEOUS slate Dash & Albert rug, which again fits into our masculine/feminine design.
My clients also wanted a small seating area & due to the size of the room, it was easy to find a spot for this swoop armed chair. A pillow in a coordinating bedding color completes this corner.
Due to excessive amounts of light coming in through their wall of windows and doors, we added ceiling-to-floor, wall-to-wall silk window treatments the filter the light without completely blocking it. They're around 3 inches longer than the height of the wall, which gives us this nice pooling effect.
I've featured this design on my portfolio page, but hadn't properly blogged about it. I am excited to share another "After" bedroom design! Check out another dramatic before & after bedroom design here.
