Before & After: Master Bedroom Suite

We’re excited to say we’ve added a new category to our blog recently: Design Solutions. In addition to giving decorating suggestions like our 4 tips for designing successful outdoor spaces, we also want to offer before and after looks at our designs—it’s always great to see the whole picture from beginning to end. Take, for example, this master bedroom suite we just completed.

As a solution for the strange bed niche, we designed a built-in desk unit that takes advantage of the space rather than closing up the wall. We also brightened the overall room by re-painting the walls a soft peach and by adding more light sources, including a new center ceiling light and a pair of sconces on the adjacent sitting room walls. Multiple light sources are always a great way to brighten a room and add interest.

We modernized the overall traditional architecture using contemporary nickel decorative light fixtures, crisp black and white photography and a combination of clean-lined furniture with fun, graphic fabric accents, as you can see on the throw pillows and A/V console cabinet doors.

To make this bedroom appear more spacious and To make this bedroom appear more spacious and add comfort underfoot, we installed a large geometric wool carpet bound with wide linen tape in each section of the master suite, covering the wood floor.

And adding a layer of heavy linen draperies over the existing wood blinds warmed up the sitting area.

So, there you have it: a master bedroom suite before and after. What’s your favorite part of the transformation?

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by design and the subtle impact of our surroundings. Some of my earliest influences still resonate – I think of the dark woods and textured lodens of my father’s shooting club, the smell of fresh paint on a new canvas, and the bold symmetry of the Philip Johnson Glass house just down the street. For me, it was a natural path to become an Interior Designer. I love what I do. I’ve created this Blog to share my thoughts, finds and design inspirations. I hope you enjoy it!
