Master Suites: Subtle Mastery

Photography by Med Dement

Sanctuary
To make the room a true escape for lounging as well as sleeping, Davenport arranged seating in the room with these elegant bucket chairs, covered in another subtly textured and patterned fabric. The walls are painted a soothing color, as Davenport says, “You should be able to wake up and feel calm in your surroundings.”

the curve of the bench legs in front of the bed echoes the curves of the headboard, while their matching textured fabric make each piece “pop.”After a fire destroyed a significant part of this master bedroom, the homeowners called on interior designer Alice Davenport to help them reimagine the space. Davenport, with design expertise culled from firms in New York City, took the blank canvas and meticulously designed every line, texture and detail to create a space breathtaking in its subtlety. The curve of the bench legs in front of the bed echoes the curves of the headboard, while their matching textured fabric make each piece “pop.” The linen curtains pick up a subtle geometric pattern, while the curtain hardware was a good way to bring in warming gold accents. Three large pillows were the perfect minimal choice to bring another pattern and texture without overwhelming the bed or making it too feminine, as the room is a “his” and “her” master. Similarly, the box-pleated bedskirt keeps the bed feeling fresh and classic. The dark woods on the bedside tables and chairs give the room depth against the soft colors in the fabrics and on the wall.
