Interior designer Linda Woodrum’s “ode to nature,” the master bedroom boasts organic bedding and furnishings that tell their own unique stories.

A private hallway with office nook leads from the loft to the master suite. “Is it your office? Is it for your hobbies or for your collections?” says interior designer Linda Woodrum. “It could be for a baby because you have all that storage in the cabinets.”

Mixed-media illustrations, mounted on laminated pine, make a dramatic statement in the hallway. Produced by artist Susan Helbig, artwork complements the mellow wall color. “Until you’re in the niche, you don’t realize that it’s no more than a hall,” says Linda. “You’re not aware of how significant that space is.”

A beetle-kill barn door closes the niche off from the loft, so that an individual could work in the space while not interrupting family members. “The niche is a great spot. It can be your office, if you work at home,” says Linda.

Cut-loop carpeting in a mossy green greets guests as they enter the master suite. “It’s rich and quiet, and supports that whole design theme,” says Linda.

A 7-foot barnwood floor mirror reflects light and adds textural interest.

A carbon-steel side table, paired with a traditional club chair, features an eye-catching Celtic knot design.

A beetle-kill pine door with frosted glass panes separates the master bedroom from bathroom.

Apparition, a graphite charcoal drawing by Anna Kaye, presides over the tranquil space. Ten percent of the artist’s sales go to Colorado’s State Forest Service to provide funding for the Bark Beetle Mitigation Fund. “It’s dramatic. It’s bold, but it’s not overpowering,” says Linda. “And it ties everything together.”

A heavy-duty scaffolding table, nestled below a set of windows, serves as a display perch for decorative accessories, including a faux-bois table lamp.

Reclaimed wood turns artwork in a room devoted to rest and relaxation.

The lattice-like headboard system, constructed by carpenter David Brown, showcases locally sourced beetle-kill pine. The grayish-blue hue of wood is enhanced with a protective layer of clear coat.

An Asian-style rattan chair offers a tranquil space to read or relax. “It’s sculptural,” says Linda. “It’s back to being unusual, throwing in one piece in the mix that’s different and unexpected. It was an early find — one of those impulsive buys.”

The bed is flanked by two sturdy cement tables. “They are so industrial and cool,” says Linda.

Starburst mirrors, fashioned from reclaimed mahogany, make a dramatic statement in the room’s far corner.

Organic bedding inspired by Old World chinoiserie continues the room’s focus on nature themes.

“The master bedroom is a very tranquil, Zen-like space,” says Linda. “I think that’s very significant today. People like to have a spot where they can go and relax, feel like they can go and escape, and we put all of that in that bedroom.”
