I always feel that bedrooms should be calming and serene and in the case of my #projectparkslope clients who have two small kids, I wanted to create a master bedroom that felt like a retreat from toddler central. The space has a beautiful white marble fireplace which inspired a very soft color scheme. The clients lived in an all gray apartment previously and were nervous about the idea of incorporating color into their home. Since they loved grays, I came up with this soothing blue monochromatic palette grounded in Benjamin Moore’s Cool Breeze which, depending on the light, sometimes can reads more gray. It was a nice comprimise! Scroll through for a full before and after tour. I tried to include links for as many items as I could. Let’s start off with a couple of before shots of the space during the renovation…
And now for the progress shots…
You can see that new baseboards were added, the picture rail underneath the crown moulding was removed and all of the millwork was restored and painted Benjamin Moore’s White Dove for a more clean and modern look. We added a beautiful light fixture from Circa Lighting which isn’t visible in the final shots. You can find it here. And now for the final room reveal….
This master bedroom is such a breath of fresh air! The tufted bed from Bernhardt covered in a Fabricut linen adds an air of romance to the room. I especially love the rug from Stark which adds lots of texture plus the geometric pattern lends a bit of edge to the soft, feminine space and helps break up the tonal palette a bit.
I found this beautiful abstract painting from an artist I discovered through Saatchi Art named Mary Elizabeth Peterson. Her work is so bold and graphic and the colors of this piece really compliment the room. I added a simple gold leaf floater frame to give it an even more elevated look.

I always use crisp white bedding in design projects. It makes every bedroom feel like a luxury 5-start hotel. You can find this greek key duvet & sheet set here. Additional credits: Mirrored Side Table / Lamp / After photos by David Land
