New Project: Elegantly Modern Makeover
There’s no room more important than the master bedroom. It’s a sanctuary where one goes to escape the craziness of the outside world. A real haven, if you will. That’s why I think master suites are one of my favorite projects to work on. You’re given the opportunity to create this beautiful space that becomes a real oasis for your client. After all, you spend a third of your life sleeping, so why not make your bedroom a real dream come true?
For our Elegantly Modern Makeover, the client wanted something that felt modern and luxurious, a space that exuded a rich feeling of grandeur without going too over the top.
Space Planning & Room Configuration
The room was large, so I was able to incorporate a sitting area into the space as well which gave the room that real “master suite” feel. After playing with a number of different variations and taking into account space planning, we landed on the below configuration:
Color Palette and Mood Board
I opted for a range of opulent grays mixed with metallic touches to give the room that added touch of glam. For the paint color, Sherwin Williams Zircon was the perfect match – a neutral gray that’s not too light, not too dark.
A luxurious custom bedding ensemble was created using Designer’s Guild Hendrix collection as a starting point. The duvet material was changed to the darker shade, “Idris Fog”. The palette was further juxtaposed with cushions and shams that ranged from deep charcoals to rich rippled patterns that shimmered with metallic finishes. To bring everything together, the Eastern Accents bed frame was customized in a muted gray velvet complete with a nailhead trim.

Euro Sham: Velda Charcoal by Eastern Accents
Bolster Pillow: Klein Steel by Eastern Accents
King Sham: Zahir Ripple by Eastern Accents
At the foot of the bed, we continued with our gray palette featured in the bedding with a custom bench in Velda Charcoal from Eastern Accents. The deep shade of brown in the side tables from Magnussen contrasted with the lightness of the Surya shag rug. No room is complete without a bold table lamp and I couldn’t look past the modern pair from Uttermost that really tied the entire look together.
For the seating area, atop the same style of rug that was used under the bed, we completed the space with two chaise lounges from Rowe in a Smoke shade, separated by two ottoman’s from Rowe in Pepper.

The room was flooded with lots of natural light that I really wanted to capitalize on, so a floor length shade over allures was a perfect solution. Floor length panels in JF Fabric’s Liberty material over Lafayette Genesis Shades in Pearlescent Glacier gave the windows a sense of grandeur. They were finished with a rod from the Dec & Deco Acrylic Collection in Brushed Nickel, complete with a crystal finial.
