Phyllis Kupferstein and her husband, Don Farkas, moved into their 6,000-square-foot home last year with their 8-year-old twins. At about double the size of their previous home, it's taken some time to put their personal stamp on each room. After concentrating on the more public areas of the house, however, the couple is ready to tackle their large master bedroom.
After meeting with all the designers, Kupferstein and Farkas choose Heidi Toll and Velvet Hammerschmidt. The couple thinks they really caught the essence of the design they were looking for — a sense of whimsy as well as a contemporary and luxurious feel.
With a budget of $30,000, Toll and Hammerschmidt skillfully transformed the lackluster space into a warm and luxurious suite by filling it with dark finishes and warm, earthy red tones. The furniture includes a four-poster bed, display cabinet and chaise lounge. For the room's many windows, they designed contemporary-styled grommet drapes in a cream color. The metallic curtain rods have a dark finish that complements the dark wood furniture and provides visual contrast to the walls.
