Two Shades of Grey

This is an oldie but goodie that I never did a complete post on.  I finished this room about 18 months ago and it has been featured here and here.  Enjoy!


Chic Master Bedroom

I wanted to create a relaxing master bedroom for this client with cool color tones and traditional/modern elements. It needed to be livable and functional for this family with young children. The room was a very bland tract-style bedroom, so I felt it was important to create a lot of interest on the main wall. Adding the white casing to frame the nightstands and the upholstered bed really add depth and dimension to a basic wall.


The master bedroom is almost always the last room clients have me help them with; I guess people feel like no one sees it so why bother?  However, it’s the last room you see when you go to bed and the first thing you see when you wake up . . . sounds important to me!


Wall Treatment Concept
In order to make everything line up and fit within the boxes I measured the width and height of each piece of furniture and accessory going within the frame. We used a 2 1/2" molding to create the boxed frames.  The original plan was to use a metallic paper inside the boxes but we ended up just using a darker grey paint.  I love the way it all turned out.

Oh wow! The white frames are pure genius, I love how they give the wall a little bit of depth. I also love the calming and soothing colour scheme – just perfect for a bedroom!

Great room. Is the bed custom made or was it store bought? Would really appreciate the details. Thanks!
