HGTV Urban Oasis 2012: Master Bedroom Pictures
A sexy chrome-and-leather bed serves as the focal point in a sleek HGTV Urban Oasis space that boasts stellar water views.
A contemporary style hand-loomed rug woven from luminescent, silk-like fibers anchors the room's dramatic canopy bed, the apartment's showstopper.
Lacquered nightstands that flank the bed boast garage door-style glass fronts. The contemporary floating design stands in contrast to the rustic wood wall treatment.
Weathered gray oak flooring extends up the wall and overhead to create a captivating treatment. The look, says design consultant Linda Woodrum, is easily replicated with wallpaper, paint or mosaic tile.
A focus on water shapes extends into the master bedroom, where a bubble ceiling sconce lends drama and draws the eye.
French hotel-style linens dress the bed, topped with lattice overlay throw pillows and flanked by two chain-link pendant lights. "The bedroom could have gone in a completely different direction if I had used red lacquer and silver pillows" says Lindsay. "I love that the design became more comfortable."
Lindsay knew a mixed-media art piece would be ideal for the master bedroom. "I loved the color palette of it," she says. "The silver foil is what finally grabbed me — that flash."
Cream-colored leather was dyed to match the bedroom's side chair and living room sectional.
The master bedroom offers its own private access to the terrace. Roller blinds and sheer linen drapery, drawn during daylight hours, reduce heat gain and improve interior comfort.
"I wanted to make sure the design between the living room and master bedroom was cohesive while still making sure the bedroom made its own statement," says Lindsay. "All the furnishings are modern, but by toning down the color palette, and focusing on neutrals, I made sure the bedroom was a great place to escape and relax without losing out on high style."
Carving out a quiet area for reading and reflection, a petrified wood-topped side table cozies up to a leather-and-chrome lounge chair. "I love it: the colors, the naturalness," says Lindsay. "That's an example of the mix of natural with contemporary."
Subway tile clads a decorative column in the room's far corner. "We embraced it," says Lindsay. "We made the column an art piece, something you want to have in the room."
As sun sets, the soft glow of pendant lights and flicker candles spotlights the room's intriguing mix of materials and architectural elements.
