Earlier this week, you got a full tour of the living room and dining room in the Sunset Bungalow. Today we’d like to invite you into the master bedroom. You may have spied the sneak peek we shared when discussing the room’s paint job, but now you get to see the complete picture.
Chloe’s bedroom makes me feel like I’m sleeping on a cloud. We stuck to a purely neutral color palette that feels airy and open. The bed just seems to float against that soft blue-gray backdrop of our wall color. All of the texture in the room, from the linen bedding by Primary Goods to the custom weaving created by Bay Area artist Meghan Shimek, to the cashmere throw feels fluffy and light.
And while I’m usually a big proponent to mixing up the pieces in a bedroom (bedroom sets are so 1986), we kept all of the wood tones in this space very similar. The custom-made bed created by Oakland-based wood worker Ben Winslow is oak, the bedside tables are ash while the gorgeous Room & Board dresser is maple. The cohesiveness of the look maintains that serene, soothing feel.
All of the materials in the bedroom are natural – matte ceramic lamps from Room & Board feel clean and modern. We replaced the horrid boob flush mount with a timeless paper lantern pendant. The ceramic planter and woven laundry hamper from Overstock offer additional texture. The oversized Room & Board round mirror helps reflect even more light around the space. iI also love how it reflects the half-wall adding to that floating in sky (or ocean) effect.
Chloe needed a lot of clothes storage as closets in 1940’s homes are teeny tiny, so a second, smaller dresser offers more room and a home for more of her beautiful original art we had framed by Framebridge along with a few more pieces from her vintage collection. The full length mirror is a must-have in any master bedroom. You gotta be able to assess a full outfit!
I’m obsessed with Chloe’s lamp – it’s an original mid-century piece with a cork base that she scored at an estate sale! Also be treasure hunting friends. Always be treasure hunting. The addition of vintage pieces keeps the space from feeling too shiny and new.
As a creative director, Chloe looks at color and busy images all day everyday, so I really wanted her bedroom to be a respite from the noise. In this space she can completely unplug, relax and enjoy the view out to the Pacific Ocean that she’s lucky enough to have from her bedroom window. I wonder if she’d ever need a house sitter.
