Project Seaside Sanctuary: Primary Bedroom Reveal

see more of this project: living room, office

We're back in Key Biscayne to reveal the design of the Primary Bedroom in this beautiful beach condo! If you read the reveal of the living room or office space last month, you'll know that our goal was to create a relaxing retreat; a serene space our clients could walk into and breathe a sigh of relief.

To keep things consistent with the rest of this vacation home, we went for a bright and neutral aesthetic in the bedroom, with layers of rich organic texture. One of the first (and easiest) decisions we made was placement of the king size bed - on the largest wall, diagonally across from the floor to ceiling window, with direct views of the ocean!

This space was in desperate need of some added softness, so we went with an upholstered (performance) linen bed layered on top of a cozy wool rug, and installed floaty unlined curtains (complete with hidden black-out shade). The addition of a subtle textured wallpaper on the focal wall ties all the textures together, and brings in just enough warmth.

As is often the case, we just could not find the perfect nightstands, so we designed our own and had them handcrafted by our favorite, Grove & Anchor - problem solved! Made of solid oak, these beauties offer the perfect combination of classic simple lines and special details. We designed a recessed base for a streamlined look, and two equal sized drawers (which offer a ton of storage!), encompassed by a consistent 2" frame with mitered corners for an elevated touch. We finished these with the most beautiful hardware - made of a textured solid bronze, these drawer pulls are inset directly into the top of the drawer - another super special detail! Finished to the perfect dimensions for the space in a gorgeous white washed stain which allows the wood grain to show through, we couldn't be happier with them!

Above each nightstand we installed some elegant brass sconces with large, irregularly tapered conical linen shades. We think they offer a subtle twist on a classic form and, of course, provide gorgeous diffused lighting in the evening. Our lovely client, who has an eye for art and spotting emerging talent, sourced the artwork; a beautiful charcoal piece on cotton paper. We framed it with a large mat to balance the scale of the bed and a black wooden frame to tie in with the other accents in the room.

We had just enough space to create a little seating area, right in front of the window and the stunning sea views. We selected an insanely comfortable chair with matching ottoman (honestly, it feels like sitting on a cloud!), upholstered in a hardworking performance boucle - we couldn't think of a nicer spot to sit with our morning coffee and look out over the water!

We placed a large dresser opposite the bed, anchoring the Samsung Frame TV (which looks like art when not in use!). Continuing with our theme of marrying minimalist silhouettes with subtle twists and luxurious materials, we chose this 9 drawer dresser sheathed in hand-pieced parchment. We love the flowing lines and curves and the variation and character that this piece brings.

We finished this vignette off with a large floor mirror which helps to bounce the natural light from the window. The simple curves echo the shape of the dresser and bring an understated elegance with it!
