New Traditional

In this eclectic master suite, form and function meet to create a fresh take on traditional elements. The elegant custom wall paneling, tray ceiling, and shuttered windows build a foundation of architectural interest. The centered bed is a striking focal point, carrying rustic and warmer elements like its smooth wood finish, framed in an industrial steel. Layers of silver, slate, and smoky linens are paired with a fur throw and a cowhide rug to continue a well-balanced marriage of warm and cool, rustic and sleek, and masculine and feminine elements. Over the bed, abstract art reflects the same color palette in an agate pattern. The mirror image nightstands were custom painted in a smoky ‘dark caviar’ color, and beside the bed is a plush, velvet, sage green sofa. The rich colors of the room are easily offset by the white walls and ceiling, carefully balancing the luxurious design elements with a more traditional backdrop.
