I created two zones in the bedroom. On one side I added an incredibly luxurious bed atop a stunning area rug. On the other, I designed some mission-style cabinetry with a media center and storage and painted it off-white to blend seamlessly with the existing trim and baseboards.

Christine and Andrew's home was traditional in character, so I wanted the master suite to reflect that, but I also wanted to add a few contemporary touches. I chose a unique color scheme of pewter, platinum and other metallics but kept the patterns more conservative, with luxurious embroidery, beautiful damask and supple chenille.

On the bed, I went for a layered look: gray/pewter damask on the duvet and shams, metallic fabrics for the bed skirt and pillows, and soft linen fabric with a glittery metallic thread on the headboard.

For the windows I created a traditional valance and drapes of luxurious silk in a muted pewter color with blackout lining behind them for protection and privacy. I also installed some woven wooden blinds to help balance all the light-painted finishes in the bedroom. Beneath the windows, I covered the unsightly radiator with a long white box cover.

To thread it all together, I painted the walls in a subtle platinum/pewter shade that gives the room a soothing feeling.
