Beach Inspired Bedroom
I met with a married couple who needed direction in turning their bedroom into a place where they can both relax and also make use of the space. The husband had just one request- he didn’t want the room to look too “girly!”. They wanted to keep the color scheme neutral, using soft grays with blue undertones, white, and hints of lavender to promote relaxation and comfort. This was one of my favorite projects because I designed most of the furniture. The nightstands, headboard and console were designed by studio 9 as well as the fabrics chosen for the side chair and custom pillows. The client requested a reading area so I added a comfortable reading chair, decorative pendants for ambiance, and screen to anchor a focal point; en lieu of their existing hamper area. I was super excited for this opportunity and couldn’t wait to see the installation phase, my favorite part!
The original plan for this bedroom was not beach inspired but the client wanted to use one of her own art pieces of an ocean photograph and that’s where the inspiration came. The color for the wall is very neutral and enhances the brass on the pendants, screen, and the hardware on the nightstands and console. I found an art piece of an abstract of waves which compliments the waves on the area rug. The beach theme for this bedroom was almost an accident, as a Los Angeles Interior Designer and a beach lover, I knew exactly where to find unique accessories such as the sea urchin, shells, and art pieces.
Everything in this bedroom was handpicked with a purpose including the basket with pillows underneath the console. This basket serves as a holder for extra pillows (because who doesn’t love extra pillows) and it also hides the wires, making it look seamless. Clients were extremely happy with the outcome and were amazed at how much bigger their room looks and feels. This contemporary subtle beach theme has been one of my favorite projects!
