It’s often the subtle details that make or break the look of a space. The key, explains Ryan, is to create cohesion. For this modern ensuite, the designers strategically chose metal faucets that coordinate with the other dark accents in the room – including the shower door hinges.
In this master bedroom, the homeowner was going for a gentleman-architect vibe with wool blackout curtains, cream walls, a tufted headboard, and a collection of sketches that he did while traveling through Italy.
Stylishly simplified, the bedroom is as easy on the eyes as it is on the body. A modern four-poster bed bridges past and present and gives the otherwise contemporary space a dash of Southern romanticism. A quilted silk duvet in a soft shade of gray, navy pillows, and an antique needlepoint lumbar pillow in navy and white highlight the bed. A fresh coat of white paint freshens the room without making it too bright to be relaxing. Contemporary patterned fabric panels draw the eye to the windows and to the view beyond.
Painted walls are a practical choice at this stage of the game. Paint has a fresh contemporary feeling, and, better yet, it's the least expensive, fastest way to make a big change in a room. You'll want to tell your child that paint looks a lot darker and more vivid on four walls than in a tiny paint chip and that professional designers usually advocate choosing a color two or three steps lighter than the color you like best on the paint chip. That said, buy the smallest container you can of several colors in the running, and have your child paint an area about three feet square on one wall with each of the colors. Let your child choose the hue that looks best. (One big exception to starting with the paint color is if your child has already picked out a fabric. Then, you'll probably want to suggest paint to coordinate with the lightest color in the fabric.)
