What do the parents of two active four- year olds need in the way of a retreat? A sophisticated master bedroom with a spa-like feel that provides them with relaxing alone time but is tough enough to stand up to story time and playtime with the kids.
This master bedroom began with some basics – the four poster bed and two nightstands. We added some whimsy to one of the nightstands by having Billet Collins studio work their magic on what was a very generic round table. In an effort to control the light, we began with crisp white plantation shutters for all of the windows. The walls were painted a cool misty blue while trim was painted a crisp white.
An existing chair and ottoman were reupholstered in a child friendly fabric that that is also stylish and sophisticated . The beautiful Icthus bench by Michael James graces the foot of the bed providing a practical place to sit.
The couple purchased the large piece of artwork that provides a tranquil and soothing focal point on the far wall of the bedroom. We added the metal base console table with a natural stone top for under the artwork. We also added a large glass vase with natural grasses to complete the look on the far wall.
The couple had most of their bedding already, but we added a pillow in a stylistic floral fabric that brought together the colors of the room and served as the inspiration for the faux painting on the night table.
A large floor mirror framed in a natural fabric was propped against one of the walls and provides a smart way to bring more light in the room as well as serve as a functional accent.
The final touches included a spa-blue throw for the end of the bed, a porcelain lamp for the night table, and accessories for the console and the nightstand.
This is one master bedroom that will hold up to time in style and durability… and will look good doing so.
