DESIGN FILES :: MODERN NEUTRALS TO FILL AN UPGRADED APARTMENT (PART II)
You might have checked out Part 1 of our latest home reveal (check part 1 here), we now take you on a tour on the rest of the house tour.
The Master Bedroom Inside, the light continues to permeate the rooms, and the bedroom maintains that simple, but cozy modern feel.
My client fell in love with a beautiful horse painting she had purchased for the new house, so we stayed in line with its colors and emphasized the layers and textures to create a serene and luxurious feeling. The room gets gorgeous light that bounces off all the crisp grey walls, but for the night we added beautiful black out curtains in a luxurious finish and pattern that adds further visual depth to the room.
The bed we chose almost cuddles you (warning though- it had to be brought up 32 flights of stairs as it didn't fit in the elevators!) The bedding was crisp white cotton, throw pillows and a lovely brick color throw from The One.
A painting of another beautiful horse was placed on top as a source for all the colors in the room. We added the leather studded side beds from Marina Home to give it an edge and hung metal mirrored side lamps from The One to allow for ample space by the bed.
Since the room has a great view just like the rest of the house, we had to add the super comfy IKEA side chair & footrest as well as table for that morning coffee.
Another Television set was installed in the bedroom along with an IKEA media cabinet that not only offers extra storage but anchors the room nicely.
Accessories were simple silver frames, plenty of candles and greenery all over.
And now for my favorite! The dressing room!
The Dressing Room
This was a main request straight from the beginning. Naoufer had explained that she needed as much cabinets as possible for all her clothes and hundreds of shoe pairs! Hence we used the extra bedroom and created a huge dressing room in a palette of only whites. We even did bit of an IKEA hack by making an island of drawers placed back to back and finishing it with a glass top.
We added a little desk in the back which offered space to work when needed. We even managed to fit in a single IKEA grey sofa bed for guests in that space.
The dressing room was styled with perfume bottles on a mirrored tray, simple window treatments and a huge hanging IKEA burst lightfoot a bit of funk appeal to the space along with beautiful orchids.
And last but so not least…
The Shoes Cabinet
Obviously the dressing room didn't offer enough space for the shoes, so the alternative was to turn the mini storage room in the apartment into a big shoes cabinet! Again IKEA offered the best option for cheap but sturdy shelving which fit perfectly along the wall. We added mirror panels in the front t further enhance the small space. A sheepskin and a small plant were added to warm it up.
The end result was like a dream come true!
The Powder Room
The original owners did a beautiful job renovating this space, so we kept dressings to a minimum. Some bath accessories paired with clean blue towels were all that was needed to make this space guest-friendly.
On the challenges:
The main challenge of this project was logistics. It was quite the feat getting the vast amount of inventory in place right as my client moved houses and before her travels to cover the US elections in a jam-packed two-day installation. It was an exhilarating experience with many 'make it work' moments. We've found that often times being forced to improvise helps to create a more effortless finished space.
