Serene Sleep Sanctuary In St. Michaels

We are so excited to share this lush master bedroom with you all! It’s been a long-time coming. This project was completed many months ago, but since the clients aren’t local (the home is in Maryland, we’re in Pennsylvania) it took some time to find the right day to have the photoshoot. These homeowners were repeat clients for us; we designed this home for them in Philadelphia. They are just THE NICEST people with AMAZING taste – which is the perfect recipe to cook up an awesome client, design and overall experience.

These chairs face the large windows, which provide a view out to their calming lake.

We love a good, tailored-looking nightstand. This one adds the perfect bit of black contrast to the room.

We love layering rugs in a large space – a jute and vintage combo can’t be beat!

Like so many of our projects, this design was birthed from an inspiration image that our client shared with us. She was flipping through a shelter magazine, paused on this page and sent it over to us. Now, clearly, it’s a picture of a living room and not a bedroom – but there are still elements that can be pulled out and translated for an entirely different space. What did she love? The lushness of the greenery. The vintage-inspired rug. The yummy jewel-toned velvets. The mix of masculine and feminine materials. The sense of whimsy and curiosity. The blues and greens…see for yourself…

We translated this look into a sleep space that displays all of these elements. It’s colorful, but comfortable. It’s sophisticated – not stuffy. In short, it’s everything that our client wanted, which is always the goal. If you’re looking for additional ideas on how you can update your bedroom, check out this article I wrote for Domino.com.

Now, more than ever, it’s important to feel connected to your surroundings. As we’re in this period of social-distancing and self-quarantining, we want to feel comfortable and safe at home. We have always believed that interior design can improve your quality of life, but are reminded of that sentiment even more so during this week of uncertainty. Take care of yourself, friends. xx
