in January, we were approached by a new client who was adding a second story to his home to create a master suite. Located near the ocean, his interior decor currently resembles that of a modern beach house. We decided to give him two design choices for his new suite, both tying in the look and feel of the rest of his home.
In the first option we showed our client how the walls could look if they were clad in shiplap. This creates a nice texture and brings in a relaxed, coastal element. A custom bench is flanked by built-in bookshelves and would be the perfect place to read a book. We used the Drommen bed from CB2 paired with Restoration Hardware Reclaimed Russian Oak nightstands lit by wall sconces in this design.
In the master bathroom, we used a bold cement tile that continues up the wall where the floating toilet would be installed. A glass shower enclosure, chrome fixtures and a wall hung modern vanity make this bathroom feel more like a spa.
In the second option, we used a navy color for the walls to create an intimate setting while tying back in to the nautical theme. The custom bench has moved to the adjacent wall from the first option and looks directly out onto the ocean. The bookshelves go all the way to the vaulted ceiling and are painted in white to lighten up the space. The upholstered sleigh bed from West Elm is paired with walnut mid century nightstands and cement pendant lights.
In the master bathroom, charcoal hexagonal floor tiles ground the room. Elongated white subway tiles create texture to the walls. We used a freestanding vanity with vessel sinks and changed the fixtures to matte black for this option.
Our client was really pleased with both designs but ultimately felt that option two was the best fit for his lifestyle. We will keep you all updated as we progress further in this project.
