Hotel Inspired Bedroom
I’ve had the opportunity to travel to different places and stay at amazing and luxurious hotels. In today’s blog I will talk about a pianist that contacted me with a desire to transform his bedroom and bathroom into a hotel inspired one, since he was always on the road. For your enjoyment, I’ve included the before and after pictures at the end of this blog!
The bathroom had an existing vanity that would be incorporated into the new design. Since the vanity was a dark tone I decided to darken the tile color of the shower so the vanity would blend in seamlessly with the new design. Lighter colored tiles were installed diagonally on the floor creating the illusion of a wider space. I chose smoke gray-textured tile for the shower walls and the new focal point for the bathroom. Designing a niche in the tile wall not only created a focal point but it also served as a place to put bathroom accessories. Client wanted better lighting in the bathroom therefore I decided to put bocce balls pendants above each sink. I also placed Jonathan Adler sconces on each side of the niche to add lighting to the area. I selected black and white bathroom accessories to complete the hotel inspired atmosphere.
To create a smooth transition from the bedroom to the bathroom, I chose to have the bedroom painted in a gray/blue undertone since the two spaces lack a door to separate one from the other. Due to the spacing in the room, the new custom made bed had to remain in the existing place. I accessorized the bedroom with rich dark textures to tie the bathroom’s hardware finish. To keep the room feeling masculine, I used navy blue, red, black and charcoal gray as our color palette.
The space in the room was very limited therefore I had custom made nightstands mounted on the wall with a sconce light placed above eliminating the need for a table lamp. Client wanted an area where he can read so we designed a reading nook. After learning a bit of my clients lifestyle, I searched for vintage airliner labels and framed them as Artwork in a dark finish and mounted on the wall to create the final “hotel inspired look.”
