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."
"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.
