Happy Wednesday! It's hard to believe it's already the middle of the week. Today I am sharing a 'Coastal Modern' master bedroom design for my e-design clients across the state. They were one of my very first clients when they hired me to design a nursery for their second child. Now we are tackling their bedroom. They've waited a long time for this and it's very well deserved!
Their home is a 1970's contemporary, but they love the relaxed feel of coastal interiors. Plus, Kara is from my home town and we both grew-up on Lake Huron. You just can't take the Great Lakes out of the girl!
Their sleigh bed was a wedding gift, and it's a beautiful piece from Thomasville, so we're keeping that. They are also keeping their current tall dresser, but I'm recommending they paint it cream like the nightstands. I'm suggesting they use their long/low dresser somewhere else, and replace it with this beautiful tailored chair.
I don't take coastal literally, but I do translate that into texture and organic elements, such as a white linen duvet cover, natural wood toned mirror, and this stunning aquamarine, wavy stripe, glass table lamp.
Even the little pillow on the chair has detail and texture.
Finally, for a subtle added wow to the room, I'm recommending a pearl grasscloth wallpaper with a blue ceiling. Similar to this:
The bed pillows are all from fabrics by Kelly Wearstler:
Although there is a decent amount of pattern in the room, the entire space stays relaxed because of the monochromatic scheme. That's fancy talk for using blue on blue on blue. ;-)
What do you think? Is this a room you could relax in?
Does this fit your idea of 'Coastal Modern'?
