A Primary Bedroom with Natural Sophistication

The secrets to a rustic, refined and restful bedroom lie in clean design and repetition, both in materials and colors.

Room Highlights

  1. A tray ceiling extends the volume of the room vertically. Cladding it in wide planks of aged corral board, with varying shades of gray and brown, sets the palette for everything else in the room.
  2. The en suite’s rugged sliding barn door echoes the wood on the ceiling, but to give it its own identity, the boards are set in an elegant herringbone pattern. 
  3. In the primary bath you will find a simple wood vanity that grounds the sophisticated, patterned wallpaper, giving the room a town-and-country vibe.
  4. The elongated windows were chosen to enhance the room’s connection to the outdoors, but keeping them narrow lets the space feel snug.
  5. The sleek furnishings rely on texture, rather than ornamentation, to tell their story. Supple velvets (bed and chaise), crisp cottons (corner chair and bedding), faux fur (coverlet) and plush wool (area rug) accentuate the wood.
