This traditional neutral master bedroom is complete with matching lamps. A touch of black in the lampshades anchors the space and adds the right touch of elegance and drama.
This bedroom addition opens out to the desert floor where the homeowners enjoy coffee with the Arizona wildlife. Mechanized window shades are recessed into the soffits to provide blackout or translucent light control. A base of neutral colors (paints, fabrics, carpet) is balanced with varying textures and patterns to create a calm, harmonious interior space. A new gas fireplace, recessed TV, lighting, sound and windowcoverings are controlled via remote from the bedside.
Custom pieces can make a big statement in a room. This hand-carved, mahogany mirror frame was specially commissioned to artisans working in the mountains of Colombia.
This dramatic, custom-designed master bedroom features an oversized diamond-tufted leather headboard that sits in a niche. The espresso-colored Wenge flooring is carried up the wall frame through to the custom bed. The bone white headboard is a sharp contrast against the rich wood floors and walls, creating a sense of luxury.
The Buddha cutout and shoji screens slide together to cover the window completely, or slide apart to become large blank canvases reflecting the 'being" and "nothingness" of Zen.
Speaking of Zen, I love this closet design. The walls in this luxurious, Asian master suite closet were rearranged to resemble a spacious high-end boutique. The custom cherry cabinetry by Irpinia Kitchens adds to the elegant look.
