We had the pleasure of recently working on a master bedroom project and loved the transformation that took place! With two small children, our client was in need of a “getaway” space for nap time/post bedtime relaxation and we were happy to help! Take a look at a few of the before shots.
As you can see it was a clean slate, with plenty of room for making a more cohesive, inviting space! The room had recently been painted Sherwin Williams Misty, an inspiration from another clients home they had seen (you can read more about the color in our featured grays post). The main requests from the couple were updated, functional furniture in the bedroom and a “work space” in the sitting room with storage for files, paperwork etc… Here was the inspiration photo the client shared with us for the bedroom:
We decided on the best floorpan for the deep space, which included plenty of room for a bench at the foot of the bed, leaving a large area for foot traffic even with a dresser.
Check out the rendering that our amazing designer Taylor created to help our client visualize the furniture in the room!
Let’s see the final results shall we?!
Such a bright and airy space isn’t it?! Both the bed and the bench were from Universal Furniture, a great update in size and style from the original space. The end tables were the same as the end tables shown in the inspiration image which were from Caracole. We used gallery wall frames in both silver and espresso from Pottery Barn to tie together the wood finishes and the images above the bed are prints from UNC Chapel Hill where the couple met! We kept the original light sconces, just moved them slightly higher to accommodate the headboard.
We used the New South Home Custom Drapery Panels in Climbing Blossom Gray as well as our custom pillows in Velvet Shimmer Aqua and a bed pillow in Garden Gate Aqua. You can shop the entire room here. The bedding we chose was the Pottery Barn embroidered pearl in gray mist which complimented everything from the headboard to the additional throw pillows!
This dresser was also from Universal Furniture, but we swapped out the hardware for something slightly more unique, a glass ball with a pewter base, which we featured in this hardware round-up post.
Next up was the office/sitting room. It needed to be functional for storing files, and computer use, but also have a space for lounging and reading. Here is the plan Taylor created for the space.
We had our cabinet guy custom build this office space, with plenty of room for filing paperwork, hiding electronics and storing office supplies. The pin-board was created custom with our Signature Linen aqua fabric and finished with a pewter nailhead trim. We used the same hardware from the dresser on these builtins to tie both spaces together.
Our client absolutely loved this chair and a half we found from Drexel Heritage (Arabella), leaving a space to curl up and read a good book or take a little siesta! The open shelving for displaying items was an Uttermost piece that complimented the round side table peeking out which was from Hooker furniture.
Once we completed the Master bedroom update, we came up with a plan for the clients family room media center. With speakers mounted to the wall and electrical cords impossible to stash, we needed a solution to account for all the little issues they were running into. Here was the inspiration image they shared with us.
We took their inspiration, along with the need for hiding speakers and maintaining their functionality and came up with this plan.
Check out this little sketch after reviewing the original plan. Proof that our jobs can get a little chaotic -> thank goodness we love details!!
In order to hide the speakers that were mounted, we needed to find a “screen” that would allow the sound to come out, but the look of the speaker to be hidden. We found decorative aluminum sheets from Global Industrial that were placed on the cabinet door inset! It was an awesome solution and we LOVE the way they turned out!
The round pewter knobs were found at build.com and the paint color used on the built-ins was Sherwin Williams Pure White (matching the trim color in the rest of the home). After the client was able to live in the updated space for a few weeks, we came back to photograph the transformation and she shared her excitement and joy with the new look! Happy Clients= Happy Designers.
