Inspiration for the bedroom design came from two raffia inlay accent chests that flank the bed. A tone on tone color palette spells serenity while the layering of damask and trellis patterns evokes Hollywood regency style. "I tried to keep it light, airy, clean and very serene because it's a master bedroom," says interior designer Linda Woodrum. "And the sandy colors in the palette are very peaceful and relaxed."
With its own private deck and easy access, via telescoping glass doors, to outdoor spaces, the master bedroom offers a luxurious retreat. Hickory floors and an ashwood bed, finished in a dark hue, ground the space and make light colored fabrics pop.
Creating a cocoon like feel, the queen sized bed nestles inside a wall niche. Green accent pieces connect the space to exteriors.
The bed is dressed in linen sheets with a linen box stitched quilt complete with French knot details. The damask pattern of the area rug lends drama and continues the room's focus on bold pattern and design.
Tabletop accents help to tell the story of serenity and compelling design. Pagoda style lamps are paired with faux tortoise jewelry boxes and a scented soy wax candle.
A bedside iPad controls the mattress base, which adjusts to accommodate several ergonomic rest positions. The user can adjust head and leg positions as well as head, lumbar and leg massage, and preset both position and massage modes.
A bed and breakfast style experience is served up for the lucky winner. Crisp white porcelain dinnerware and bamboo style stainless steel flatware comprise a lovely place setting.
Trellis like upholstery fabric elevates the design of a sand colored lounge chair. A creamy wool throw blanket invites one to curl up and nap.
Interior designer Linda Woodrum, not a fan of all-white interiors, selected an ashwood bed in a dark finish to complement creamy linens. "You have to have something to ground your lights." she says. "You do need darks it might be a piece of artwork, a coffee table, artwork or pillows."
A dressing table near the room's entrance commands attention. Graphic design comes in the form of the Greek key fretwork mirror, a trellis fabric tablecloth and filigree embroidered lampshades. The mirror frame and potted ferns add the needed pop of green.
A petite ottoman, upholstered in a refined lattice print fabric, serves as seating and doubles as a tabletop surface.
Wall mirrors reflect light and visually expand the room's already generous footprint.
An LED TV offers the luxury of cinema in bed. Media equipment and DVDs are easily stowed in the travertine topped cottage style server, which doubles as a media cabinet in the master bedroom.
An oversized photograph draws the eye in the room's far corner. "We thought it was really graphic, strong, and had a nice contrast to all the peacefulness in the room without being jarring," says Linda.
